Informative tour and Lizzie gave us a good insight into both Oxford history and life as a student. Small enough group so no snippets of information missed.

Trevor was amazing. We went the full family with twin 3 year olds. And Trevor was so so patient in waiting everytime we reached with them slowly before starting. Still he gave all the information and the tour was really memorable. Kudos to footprint tours.

A great free tour by tourguide Trevor. A great way to get a first idea of Oxford. The guide (Trevor) has a great enthousiastic way of telling and explaining.

Great tour from a current student, who was confident, witty but not arrogant. Saw lots and heard all the inside info, perfect. Only point I would question is the price: 17 euro pp, while a free tour by the same company starts at the same...More

Jo gave our group a really lively, interesting and thoroughly engaging tour of Oxford Uni. She injected her own life experience in Oxford as we toured the Uni. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable and we would recommend it to everyone 😄.

Hello there. The routes our guides take will depend entirely on the nature of the group. If any of our guests have prams, or use wheelchairs, we will always ensure that the route is appropriate for all guests :)

Oxford - which tour? (1 Replies)
Hello everyone. I'm coming to London for a week, and decided to spend half a day in Oxford. I understand that Footprints have the best tours - but I cannot decide which tour to take - the free one, with larger group, mostly on the outside, or the priced one, smaller group, and mostly inside the buildings? Just to make clear, the money is not the issue - I just want to make the most out of the day. What do you think?

Frontistiria: Teaching English in Greece (2 Replies)
I'm looking for someone with experience teaching English in a Greek frontisteria. I'm considering this job option and would like to know how your experience was. Any wisdom you have on the subject would be greatly appreciated. I'm in love with Crete, but would be open to working on other islands as well. Questions: 1) There seem to be several agencies (TeachAbroad, Footprints Recruiting) who hire English speakers to teach at these frontisterias. Is it necessary to go through these...More

Is it necessary to go through these agencies or will I have luck simply approaching schools in August?

Footprints Tour in Oxford (4 Replies)
Hello, I found a free tour company called Footprints Tour and booked a spot for myself for a tour in Oxford, near Oxford University area. I was wondering if any of you know if the company is legitimate and if it is actually worth the time to go on tour with them? Also, I booked a space and the company required that I pay 2 GBP but I did not, so do you know if this will affect my reservation anyhow? Thank you for all of your help.

Have you read what the £2 entitles you to? For such a paltry amount I would pay it, though I am a bit suspicious of a website that does not know the difference between your and you're. With nearly 1200 reviews on TA, overwhelmingly positive, you can be assured this company is legitimate. For what it's worth, I would say that the tip should be £10 if you really enjoyed it and £5 if it was only so-so.
