My husband, baby and I walked for hours it was lovely. From the shops to the mall to the streets. There are signs and maps around so you can plan. Parking is not so bad and there are many car parks around.

We needed a tour of Oxford but only had an afternoon and needed to customize it to my family. David was able to do this and adjust the tour to what we wanted. Oxford has become very commercialized (in a negative way) in the last 25 years and it is necessary to get a good guide if you are interested... More

We booked a 3-hour walking tour for a small team offsite and it was spectacular! David was amazing! He's such an engaging guide and took us to some really incredible places. He's a fantastic storyteller and recounted some truly fascinating facts about Oxford's history. Everyone loved it and we would absolutely do it again! It's great for family, friends and... More

With only an afternoon to spend in Oxford, I'm so glad we decided to take a 3-hour walking tour with David as our guide. We specifically requested a tour focused on Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll and other Oxford literary greats, and David delivered brilliantly. Our tour was completely personalized and full of fascinating facts and fun tidbits of knowledge.... More

David is a quintessential Brit with a wicked since of humor, vast and diverse knowledge and a sincere interesest in his subject. We toured many of the Oxford Colleges. We were so impressed with David that we engaged him again for another tour the very next day! I would recommend David and Oxford City Walk without reservation!

David Gunnell took us on a three hour walking tour of Oxford. He was very knowledgable with many stories and interesting details to share on a vast range of topics about the University and the various colleges. He made our visit to Oxford most enjoyable. I would heartily recommend him.

I took a group of students on a tour of Oxford and Christ Church college in September and they loved it. David was a wonderful guide, he even brought Harry Potter props for photos. He met our requests and surpassed our expectations. I plan to book tours for future groups with Oxford City Walk. Highly recommended!

On a course at the University arranged by my employer. This 90 minute tour was one of our evening events. I was getting a bit jaded of every waking minute being organised for me and only went on this walk because it seemed expected!! I am so glad I did. Guide David is just perfect - he knows his stuff,... More
