Tom won us over with his enthusiasm and knowledge. It was a very cold afternoon but he gave enough facts, background info and 'strange but true' information to keep us interested and smiling despite the cold. One of our group loved the Harry Potter bits yet there was the story of Thomas Crammer's life and death.

Heaps of quirky fun facts, interesting history and funny stories about the colleges and town folk. Not to mention the inclusion of some crucial Narnia and Harry Potter places of interest. Awesome tour guide - kept us interested despite the freezing temps!!

My partner and I visited Oxford last weekend, we normally do a city bus our but the b+b owner recommended the walking tour as the city is quite small. It was really enjoyable and we got to see many sights of Oxford and also learn some interesting facts. Our guide Tom was fab, very friendly, funny and knows his stuff too - I was a bit cheeky at the end of the tour and pretended I was going to give him 1 pence but we did pay him properly shortly after (it made him laugh anyway) - I think there are other walking tours available but I would recommend this one 100%.

Nice way to spend a couple hours on a sunny afternoon with a good informative and funny guide. Shame we didn't get to see the Radcliffe Hospital, Fred :)

Highly recommended - lets you see a good number of the sights, allowing you to note the ones to revisit later for a more in depth look.

Great Work
