    Had a great time during the tour ! Libby our guide is very knowledgeable and personable , show alot of enthusiasm. Half way through the tour it started raining hailstones and she was still beaming way ! The tour is well paced and we visited a few colleges during the tour and places around the old town. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Oxford city.

    Thanks for the good tour around Oxford University! Guide had good knowledge for the place. Learned alot about Oxford.

  • 11-Nov-2022

    Very knowledgeable guide, good timing and length of tour. One idea that might be a good thing, I received the confirmation of the tour telling me exactly where to meet up but then I was faced with the task of finding parking within a good range of the meeting place. As I am not from Oxford and am just visiting for the day it was quite daunting. Is it possible to include map coordinates for close by parking facilities. Thanks.
