The tour was great. Our guide Richard told us a lot of interesting facts about the city itself and the university. With so much information, unfortunately you can't remember everything, so a summary sheet (i.e. handout, brochure, or else) of the most important facts would be a nice goodie to go with the paid tour. The group size was fine and the organisation worked well. I can really recommend the tour and our guide.

We really enjoyed the walking tour of the University and city as our tour guide was really informative but at the same time made the tour fun. We would highly recommend the tour to friends, family or anyone visiting Oxford that would like to learn more about University and it’s history.

Brilliant !! Anastasia was incredibly informative and at the same time very entertaining. The two hours flew by even though it was raining. We visited all the relevant places of interest in Oxford during which time we were given all the historic information. I would highly recommend.
