So full of amazing history around every corner. Our unplanned visit was a couple of nights camping on a tour we were doing which ended up in Milton Kynes at the bowl. We soon spent more time in Oxford exploring more of this place

Can there be a better way to get oriented to Oxford? I doubt it. David Gunnell is the single best tour guide I've encountered anywhere in the world. His wit and good will delighted my students and colleagues alike. (I booked Oxford City Walk for a 50-person study abroad program that I run.) David knows so very much about the... More

A group of 15 of us went on a walking tour as part of our team building day. David had been highly recommended to us by another part of the business who regularly book him for walking tours. The tour was GREAT! We had asked for our tour to be slightly different, and this was done perfectly. David is so... More

I had an excellent day tour with guide David Gunnell as part of a National Trust tour in May 2016. David was simply the best guide we had in the entire trip. His Oxford walking tour was wonderful, educational but never dry, informative & entertaining- and this was our 5th trip to Oxford! He really made our experience memorable- thank... More

In just a few hours, David Gunnell presented Oxford to us in a way that was delightful, informative (both broadly and deeply), and memorable. He was very sensitive to our moods and interests. There is so much that you cannot pick up by looking at buildings and reading web pages. Oxford City Walk was the highlight of our time in... More

I did this with a group of different nationalities that was visiting our company, I feel I learnt more about Oxford that evening than living here for 20 years.

I took a 3 hour tour of Oxford with David and it was fantastic. His knowledge of the city and colleges was very impressive. He also gave me lots of advice on getting around the city and other places to see. I would definitely recommend a tour with David.

David guided us around Oxford on a Sunday morning. Two young teenagers and parents. The itinerary was spot on for two and a half hours being informative, entertaining and fun. David is knowledgeable and enthusiastic whilst maintaining effortless charm. Tailored to our needs the tour was a real success. Thank you.

David is an excellent guide. He took the time to get to know us and ensure that the aspects of Oxford we were most interested in were what we got to see. He obviously knows a great deal about his subject matter but the tour never felt like a stuffy history lesson, on the contrary, it was a lot of... More

Unquestionably the high point of our Oxford holiday. David is charming, knowledgeable, humourous and most importantly, genuinely enthusiastic about in his work. Without doubt David's information and inspiration enhanced all our later visits around this wonderful City.
