Beautiful Oxford, it’s history, genius and quirky individuals.

We really enjoyed our walking tour; Mark was a brilliant guide- friendly, with just the right balance of interesting history and funny stories about the colleges and their former inhabitants. We were in a small group so it was easy to keep together and hear without having to be too close. Yes we are looking forward to going back when it’s possible to go into colleges etc but I don’t at all agree with the review that says it was ruined by not being able to do so. And Oxford is definitely less crowded at the moment.

Spent a very enjoyable, informative and entertaining two hours with James yesterday. His story telling of the people and the buildings was extensive and he managed to do it with humour. 5 stars for James!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide Trevor was excellent! Our guide maintained our interest throughout the tour and the two hours flew by. We received just the right amount of historical information and we loved the relevant anecdotes. Trevor was a very talented raconteur which helped to maintain a high level of interest in the information being shared. We learnt a great deal and left with ideas of places we would like to revisit.
