Guide James was excellent and spoke very well when explaining things. However, the itinerary should include few more items such as head statue of Deans and visit to auditorium where degree convocations are held.

Fun little excursion into Oxford’s past

This was a great tour! I love that they split the tour up into small groups-they were the only company that did that (8 people per group or so). Our guide, Kian, was knowledgeable and witty, and I loved learning about Oxford (as well as a little bit about the university system, which is pretty different from the states!). We were able to go inside the Divinity School, walk the grounds of Balliol, and throughout, learn a little of the city’s and it’s university’s interesting history. It was a lot to absorb in only two hours, but the pace was great. Highly recommend!
