I travelled from Changsha to London Gatwick with TianJing-Air on their inaugural Wednesday 29th August. My Chinese fiends, Coco & Sam, also decided to take advantage of such flight, some 2 weeks later. They arrived @ LGW on 20th July and my brother-in-law Alan Williamson was kind enough to drive me to LGW so we could meet Coco & Sam... More

With charming antidotes, intriguing teasers and a well-rounded showing of sites, there couldn't be a better way to get a feel for Oxford! Fred, our tour guide, was energetic, knowledgeable and able to answer all questions thrown his way. Because of this tour, we've been doing free tours in other cities.

The tour was truly very interesting and informative. The tour guide Tom was knowledgeable and had a good way with the crowd. I was sceptical about the quality of a free tour but I'm glad I went ahead and did it and if you're after an introduction to Oxford then this is the tour for you. The tour takes in... More

A really interesting tour with lots of banter to keep you interested and on your toes. We only had one afternoon available in Oxford and this was definitely time well spent. Thanks for a funny, informative and very engaging tour Tom. 😊👍

My partner and I took the Footprints Tour as a part of our trip to Oxford and loved every minute. This tour is especially perfect if you're only going to be in town for a few days and want to make the most of it. You learn so much about Oxford's history and writers and explore all of the key...

My partner and I went on a free walking tour with Tom as our guide last week. Tom is an ideal Oxford guide: fresh, engaging, witty – knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. We were introduced to all the secrets of this enchanting town with long and intriguing history. Highly recommended. We forget to ask him the subject of the... More

Tom, you were awesome. The tour was awesome. Kill all the naysayers. My wife says I should say more, so she thinks the tour was awesome as well. Have a nice day.

Outstanding two hours with Tom who is so passionate about Oxford's 'Gown & Town' culture and history. Anecdotes were great and he generously included all the different nationalities in his initial meet & greet. It set the ambience for the whole time. Not to be missed

Hubby and I did the Footprint tour with Tom on Monday 18th July and had a great day. Be careful you don't end up on one of the other walking tours, there are plenty of them, but as far as we could make out this is the only free one and it was well worth it! Tom, our guide, was... More
