Overview

Begin the day traveling across the Chiltern Hills to Oxford, the "City of Dreaming Spires", whose hushed courtyards and elegant, dignified timeworn buildings have inspired generations of scholars (including Bill Clinton in the 1970s) and writers, including Lewis Carroll who wrote "Alice in Wonderland" here.

Know More about this tour

Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox headphones as your tour starts and listen to your guide talking clearly about each site. If you want to wander aside and take photos of attractions, you wont miss any of the commentary!

Find your own inspiration in the sense of tradition and intellectual curiosity that pervades this lovely City. You will visit Christchurch College, where Harry Potter scenes were filmed and where Albert Einstein studied. On your walking tour of Oxford you will see the Bodleian library and the picture-perfect College courtyards for which Oxford is justifiably famous.

Through scenic countryside to Cambridge, bridging centuries of scholarly rivalry between these two venerable institutions! Cambridge's stately Gothic style College buildings rise spectacularly from the greenery along the River Cam where students and visitors enjoy punting along the River.

You will visit the magnificent perpendicular chapel of King|s cross's College, founded in 1441, which is the finest and grandest example of late medieval Gothic architecture in England, and a fitting tribute to the great minds that have studied here. During your walking tour of the city filled with beautiful buildings and historical quirks, you'll visit the so-called "Bridge of Sighs", named after its look-a-like in Venice and several other Colleges that make up the University, each with their own stories to tell.

    Beautiful areas. I liked that there was a walking tour and then some free time. It was a long day, but absolutely worth it.

    Wonderful tour of both Universities. Manon, our tour guide, was excellent. She was knowledgeable, humorous and answered all questions we asked her. If you can score a tour with her, I guarantee you’ll enjoy it.

    The tour was fantastic and worth every penny. The tour guide Manon was funny, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. She provided a interesting insights to the sites. She went out of the way to ensure that the tourists got the best experience.

    Manon is a really good tour guide and very helpful. She has a very good knowledge of both Oxford and Cambridge. Really enjoyed your company 🙂 Thanks Manon and Bill.

    This was absolutely the worst tour Viator has ever put me through and I’ve been on over 20 various Viator tours. Everything from the coach, the driver, the radio equipment and the tour guide was a complete waste. The Driver was uncaring and less than accommodating. The coach WiFi was inoperable and “Nobody knew” how to turn it on. I was on the very same coach 2 days earlier and everything worked fine. The radio equipment for the walking tours didn’t work properly. The tour guide was friendly but offered very little information and seemed not to care that we couldn’t hear anything she was saying. . She walked so fast during what little guided tour we had that the group was strung out, lost and Ill-informed of what we were seeing. I felt lost and disappointed as did many of the other tourists on this trip.

    Our coach was one hour and half late. The travel time is much more than the visits time on both campuses. We were rushed in both places.

    We started 15 mins late from the scheduled departure(9.00 am) from London at 9.15 am and reached Cambridge at 11.15 am. Started the walking tour of Cambridge at around 11.30 am. The guide spent 45 mins with us telling the history in bits and peices. She then left us at 12.15 pm to explore the city on our own for rest of the time and asked us to return to the coach by 1.20 pm. We were also asked to have lunch during the same time which essentially meant we can either explore the city or have lunch. We left Cambridge at 1.25 pm and reached Oxford at 3.30 pm. The guide again spent just 30 mins explaining few details of different colleges and left us at 4.15 pm to explore the city on our own. We were asked to return back to the coach by 5.15 pm. Again you have the option to either have some snacks or explore the city. We departed from Oxford at 5.25 pm and reached London at 7.15 pm. The reason I opted for a guided walking tour was to get a good understanding of the history of both the universities and the important colleges from these universities. But I felt the guide was either not interested or didn't have much knowledge. Also I think the tour could have been managed more efficiently. Most of other tour operators depart from London at 8.15 am. This would give us more time in both the cities.

    A delightful way to relax and get the insiders, outside tour of Cambridge’s historic schools. Check out the behind the college buzz on Cambridge’s party school. It’s wooden handrail etching designed to help drunken party goers find their way home. Also the home of England’s only living banana tree. Plastic rapped in the colder months for protection of the tree and its inedible fruit.

    Visited Oxford and Cambridge with Evan Evans Tours on September 14, 2019 with our driver Abbey and our excellent guide Chris. The coach was very comfortable and driven expertly and safely by Abbey. Chris, our guide, was a fount of information and expertly guided us through the sites while also filling us with facts about British culture and history. I highly recommend this tour to you.

    Evans and Evans tour took us to both Cambridge and Oxford as a long day trip. It does take 2 hours on the bus to get from London to Cambridge and then another 2 hours from Cambridge to Oxford and then 2 hours home again. YOu can do the math and realise that time in each town only gives you a flavour of the amazing history of these places. All the main sites were covered and good tips about where to get souvenirs were given. If you have time I would pick one university town to do a more thorough visit, but as the highlights were so amazing eg Christchurch College Oxford, I thought the trip well worth it
