Owner description: Footprints Tours is Oxford's most highly reviewed tour operator, and the only one run by students!

Very happy with the tour guide and the tour itself. Very informative, funny, relaxed. You get to see almost all the main attractions in Oxford with some good recommendations for places to have a drink or go to eat, or restaurants with quiry themes (for example, the one where they cut of guys ties). It was awesome, definitely would recommend it.

I arrived to Oxford without a clear itinerary and decided to join this guided tour around the city center.

If you are not familiar with the city this is definitely the best way to start!

In early July, my friend and I visited Oxford, hoping for a city tour. When we happened on Footprints, we couldn't believe our good fortune. Tom is a Tour Master, with a quick wit and fount of Oxford knowledge -- not just history but lore, myth, and university antics. His tour made Oxford come alive; and for two literary buffs, we thoroughly enjoyed walking in the footsteps of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Colin Dexter, et al. <g> The tour is well worth the two hour walk, and I would spring for specialized tours -- there's so much see.

Tom our guide was great
Tour lasted about 2 hours, which might seems while but it's really interesting and I'm a difficult person to please.
