Lovely tour
, Oct 2021
A very informative and humorous tour. Our guide was lovely and she was very knowledgeable. So glad we did this tour. I’m hard of hearing and she made sure I didn’t miss out on any of the information.

Our undergraduate guide (doing a degree in medicine at Jesus College) was excellent - knowledgeable, witty and entertaining. Good value and a great way to spend an afternoon in Oxford. Learnt a great deal about the university and how it works.

The guide was most informative and we certainly learnt a lot about the history of the different colleges and some surprising facts. Highlight was a visit to Magdalen where my daughter (on the tour with me) wishes to study. The guide was very happy to answer her questions. Thank you.
Very good insight to Oxford history and college life

Very informative experience with a knowledgeable guide. Our trip to Oxford would not have been the same without the walking tour around the historical university sites.

Fantastically interesting tour
, Sep 2021
It was a fantastic tour conducted by Daniel who is an undergraduate for English and Classics. He made everything so interesting with lots of added colour to the story and also shared a lot of his own experiences so it didn’t come across as robotic. Really great tour.
An entertaining tour

Daniel’s art of presenting brought the stories about the beautiful buildings to life . I enjoyed the visit inside of Exeter College , such a pretty place .
