Our guide was a young man named James. He gave my friend and I an exceptional tour and narration on the various sites shown. We were both very impressed with his historical knowledge and how this was delivered. An experience I shall not forget. We got our 2 hours worth.

Although the weather was awful - it was Sunday 9th Feb 2pm, storm Ciara and lots of rain - our guide made it such a lovely walk. We were given so much interesting information that I would have struggled to find elsewhere and it gave me the starter for further walks I could do for myself. Definitely worth doing.

Our guide (Mar) was excellent, she knew a lot of history and fun facts about the University of Oxford. Being a student herself she gave us a full insight into the university experience. Lovely to be shown a university college and experience a part of the Bodleian Library. Well worth the visit. Despite the weather an enjoyable experience
