Learnt a lot about the colleges, their history and how they operate. I felt however that a little more variation plus slightly more about the city as well as the university would have added something to the tour.
Excellent and informative

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Simon. A great guide whose delivery and content was pitched perfectly for the group. Great job Simon!

We left on time, very informative and knowledgable guide. Good value for money and felt we weren’t rushed. Twenty people on the tour which is about the right number. Guide was animated and obviously proud of Oxford.
Excellent tour guide

Simon was a fantastic tour guide and he knows do much about the colleges and the history of Oxford. Having given us a superb 90 minute tour he then made some suggestions for the afternoon. This was especially brilliant as my mum is in a wheelchair and he had thought through things that we could do to really enjoy our time in Oxford. I would highly rate this trip and in particular Simon.
Rude Tour Guide
, Jun 2021
Although informative in places, the tour was an overall disappointing experience. Our tour guide was very rude to ourselves and other members of the party and we found him to be very condescending, even commenting to one individual that they “would never have gotten into Oxford” due to asking a valid question, in a way that couldn’t be misconstrued as humour. Details of departure need to be updated on the website as we were led to the wrong place to start the tour and we’re subsequently late. Should we visit Oxford again, which we hope to do, I will choose another tour as this was not an enjoyable experience and certainly not worth the fee.
