Oxford Highlights and University Colleges Walking Tour
USD 16.56
Explore the university city of Oxford on tour that showcases its highlights in just a couple of hours. The waking tour introduces you to many of Oxford's famous colleges and university buildings as you stroll around the city with a guide. Get recommendations for things to do and see in the city in your own time, and hear insider tips for Oxford's many restaurants. The experience includes a visit inside one college and either the Divinity School or the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin.
What to Expect
Simply the best way to see Oxford is on a walking tour with a qualified guide!

Each tour is unique, does not follow a script and the best route will be chosen on the day to maximize your time in Oxford and in conjunction with opening times of the colleges.

You will visit inside a college (subject to availability) which is included in the ticket price plus a University building (subject to availability).  The tour will cover all the mains sites of Oxford (from the outside) including The Bodleian library, The Radcliffe Camera, The Bridge of Sighs, The Sheldonian Theatre, University Church, All Souls College, Brasenose College and much, much more!  

For any Harry Potter or Morse fan's - there will be a few mentions along the way (but do book a themed tour if you are an avid fan!)

Tour lasts approximately 2-hours and will finish in a central location with plenty of suggestion for what to do for lunch ... and beyond!

Interesting and enjoyable

Leigh's tour worked perfectly for my group of American high school students. The students were interested in literary connections, details about the university, and suggestions about how to spend their free time. Leigh helped make our Oxford visit wonderful.
