“Oxford tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Once again, it is proven that you cant go terribly wrong if u follow Tripadvisor. For towns like Oxford and Cambridge, which have a great deal of history to talk about, you just have to get a guide if you want to experience the true spirit of the Oxbridge. Frederick, our tour guide, is very knowledgable about the history/story of Oxford. Extremely passionate and friendly. We had a great time exploring Oxford on a Sunday afternoon (despite the miserable weather). well done!

“Fab free Oxford walking tour ( 2 hours)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Really friendly, knowledgeable guide (Tom) who was genuinely passionate about the beautiful city of Oxford. He created a relaxed atmosphere telling informative and entertaining stories of oxfords past and more recently history. Lots of ideas for places to explore further and even helpful guidance about which pubs to visit during the remainder of our stay! Absolutely no pressure to tip at the end but everyone was happy to pay generously as really enjoyed the experience. Would certainly recommend giving this tour a go at the beginning of your trip to Oxford, an excellent way to explore this magical city.

“A Walk you Can't Miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We can't think of a better way to explore Oxford. We found the Footprints Walking Tour on tripadvisor.com and took the train there to learn a bit about this town. What we didn't expect was such a captivating tour rich with history, legends and humor. Tom was a superb guide which makes all the difference, making this such a great tour, we couldn't believe the 2 hours were over. We would recommend this to anyone living in or travelling to Oxford.

“Excellent Tour of Oxford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Was not expecting a historical tour of Oxford to be so engaging and genuinely entertaining. The tour covered a very good amount of ground in the time given, with frequent knowledgeable asides from our confident tour guide, whose name escapes me. I am a local of Oxford, but knew nothing of its dense fascinating history until this tour. The tour took a natural course through Oxford, and the quick remarks and sharp humour from our tour guide made the rather dreary weather worth it. I had this tour recommended to me, and now I can clearly see why. If you find yourself in Oxford, don't miss out on the Footprints tour.

“A First Class Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Footprints Tours exceeded expectations when we decided to take the tour of Oxford. The tour began promptly, collecting new members seamlessly as the introductory welcome began. We were guided through Oxford at an enjoyable pace, and given factual but highly entertaining information throughout. Our guide Tom made a point of encouraging questions and satisfying even the most picky of historians. Oxford came alive on this tour, it was thorough, the guide was exemplary and the information was detailed and exciting. I highly recommend Footprints tour of Oxford to anyone.
