The walk was very informative and we managed to see a lot of central Oxford and a few of the colleges in two hours. Our guide shared a huge amount of knowledge and interesting anecdotes. They also shared a few questionable opinions and dated attitudes that I felt weren't appropriate for a visitor tour. However if you're in Oxford for a short visit this is a really good way to get an understanding of the Oxford colleges and their history.

Mary was our guide and boy, was she a hell of a guide! With storytelling at the forefront, Mary made sure that everyone was happy, engaged and left feeling like they know a lot more about this town and it’s history than they came in with. Sharing a list of her reccos for exploring, food, drinks and cafes was a genuine classy touch to it!

Highly recommend this tour with Anastasia. She was a captivating storyteller who entertained and informed the group with interesting and amusing stories about the history of the buildings, the university, the students there, and some references to literary connections. My family enjoyed her tour very much - great for teenagers as well.
