Know More about this tour

A private tour is a great way to get an intimate and tailored insight into Oxford and the beautiful university! With a private tour, you will be able to completely tailor the experience: from meeting and starting points to any particular themes you wish to be covered.

If you would like to visit a few of the colleges used in the filming of Harry Potter, this can be discussed and arranged for you. Depending on what you would like to see there may be additional entrances fees but your guides can discuss all available options for you at the start.

Your guides have a great insight into Oxford, and are committed to providing interesting and enjoyable tours of this beautiful city, rather than tours which put people to sleep. A large portion of the guides have also been involved with Oxford University and have a great insight into how the University works and its incredible history.

    Great tour. Our guide Laura was excellent, very friendly and knowledgable.

    Much better than taking a group tour.

    We hit the jackpot with Mark, a fellow at Oxford University who happened to just start doing some tours this summer. He was so informative and wonderful. Highly recommend a private tour of Oxford.

    This was an excellent tour. My husband and I were first time visitors to Oxford and we had pre-arranged through Viator for a private walking tour. Our guide, Lucy was excellent- she had been a graduate of one of the colleges at Oxford, lived in the area, and was so personal and generous with her time and insight into the life and history of the College system and the town. She also showed us many of the top stops we wanted to see. We saw both free and paid group tours walking throughout the city over the next several days, but we were so grateful we had started our time in Oxford with this most valuable overview. For anyone considering a walking trip- do consider this. Per our voucher, the trip was purchased through Viator and organized by group called Footprints. Thank you, Viator and Trip Advisor for linking us up for this tour. It was a real foundation for our time in Oxford and also appreciating contemporary associations with England - ex. I am real lover of CS Lewis, and she could post not out the Magdalene College where he taught and wrote for over 25 years or showing us the dining hall famous from Harry Potter movies, library where every book published in England is archived.etc.... You will enjoy this walking tour immensely. Kathy and Bill

    We took the tour because our daughter was recently accepted to study at the university, which only gives limited university-sponsored tours. We were very happy to learn that our guide, Mihai, was himself a recent graduate. He really shaped the tour to our daughter's and our interests. In addition to touring the one college Balliol with which Footprints Tours seems to have an agreement, he spoke to the porters at the college that has admitted my daughter, and they were kind enough to let us visit. He showed us all the things that he would show any tour group history, architecture, famous graduates, funny stories, Harry Potter fun facts, etc., but wove in aspects of how that would play out in my daughter's university experience. He was informative and funny, poised and still very much a newly minted graduate. He made the experience for us. The stunning setting and 1000 years plus of history helped.

    Lucy was a lovely tour guide. We would have liked more information about the city rather than focused on the colleges, but the guide was pleasant and engaging.
