although it was cold and raining, Trevor our guide gave us a very warm welcome. we have done many tours but Trevor was by far the best guide ever. even through the rain he managed to interest us and keep us listening to his stories - he is very knowledgeable about Oxford and i would thoroughly recommend this tour

Booked an 11am Sunday tour of Oxford. Recieved a telephone shortly after our booking to inform us that due to covid the tour did not currently include the scheduled visits inside the buildings. Whilst we had established this before booking, the phone call was appreciated and confirmed our expectations. It was a little disappointing we could not visit inside the buildings as part of the tour but it was absolutely worth booking. The walking was manageable and we felt that our visit to Oxford was a must richer experience because of the tour. Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting Oxford - excellent, even held the attention of our teenager.

Trevor was a fantastic and engaging guide with lots of historical knowledge. He made it really interesting and funny and my teenage boys both really found it interesting. Very clear, friendly and interactive and mindful of both the students around and people on the tour. Trevor took the time to answer questions and shed light on life at the university.. He gave lots of good recommendations to go after the tour and places to eat too. Very good value - our whole family really enjoyed it
