What people are saying about Bridge of Sighs, Oxford
Eric - our guide - was extremely knowledgeable, well spoken, informative and attentive to his clients. He took us through the tour in an organised manner which flowed effortlessly from one area to another. He answered all questions concisely and without hesitation - he obviously knew his history which actually covered a vast expanse of time. We encountered other guides whilst on our tour and it was noted they were nowhere near as knowledgeable as Eric. We would recommend Eric as a superb guide to Oxford University and surrounding area.
Guide Ivo was well informed on history of UK and Oxford, and on present-day facts. Places that were visited and shown were well chosen, fitting to the storyline. Ivo captured our attention for more than two-and-half hours with colourful storytelling under the grey skies of a late December day.
We were a nice little group of only 10 persons, so it was easy for all to hear the presentation. We got in to Exeter College, both seeing two of the gardens, the church and a path through the dormitories. Great experience :-)
Peter, our guide, was a former Oxford student and made the place come alive with fascinating stories about the place. Although only 3 hours, I felt familiar with Oxford by the time we had finished. Well worth the cost!
Such a fascinating place with soooo many great points of interest, and even a little shocking. A super Canadian student guide who really knew her stuff and took good care of us. Will return for sure.
