Sign up for a couple different tours

This was a nice tour with an energized and informative guide, a doctorate student from the university. I would definitely do it again. The one thing I would share is that it didn’t cover enough ground. In two hours I felt like we only saw three buildings. I expected to see more of the university.

Our tour guide, Clare, was lovely and by sharing many of her own experiences as a student (and employee) of the university was able to bring our exposure to it to life! (And the punting was awesome!)

Directions about when and where to meet were clear. Tour started on time. Group was not too large. Jamie really brought the experience to life. We loved that he is a student at Oxford. Good blend of historical and current information. Jamie is most entertaining! Enjoyed getting inside some of the buildings.

The tour was good and our guide, Anna, was very friendly and hospitable. We saw most of the major university landmarks. However, we weren’t able to go inside some of the iconic buildings and rooms, which was disappointing. Overall, the tour is worthwhile, but might not include every item on your Oxford bucket list

Our guide Richard was brilliant, his knowledge was outstanding about beautiful Oxford and its history. We enjoyed walking around seeing and hearing all about the university. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to go inside Jesus and it gave us a bit more insight to the university. Lovely enjoyable tour.
