Tours of Oxford offers bespoke private walking tours for the discerning Oxford traveller. Each tour is meticulously organised to meet your individual or group requirements. Our guides are the very best Oxford has to offer, sharing with you their expertise, enthusiasm, and love of story-telling – all the ingredients for a truly memorable tour of this City of 'Dreaming Spires.' In addition, whether its the arts, music, wining, dining, punting, pubs, cycle hire, or just hanging loose in the city, Tours of Oxford offer our recommendations as to places and spaces not to miss out on. It's all part of our service. Tours usually start at the Weston Library, Broad Street. If you prefer, we can meet you at the railway station in central Oxford off your train, your hotel or anywhere within central Oxford: the choice of venue is yours. Tours last approximately 2 hours with optimum start times at 11am and 2pm but either can be altered to suit your itinerary. Our most popular tour - Let's Explore Oxford - offers a fun and informative intro into our fascinating City, taking in key sights including college gardens, halls and chapels and a visit to the oldest School at the University set within the Bodleian Library. We also offer literary tours and a specialist bespoke service if you have a particular Oxford interest in mind. For full details and prices check out our website. .
