Tom enlightened us with history as well as anecdotes about the landmarks. He kept the group of multi-nationals engaged for the complete length of the tour and there wasn't a single dull moment.

Our tour guide on the "free" tour was very knowledgeable but we quickly tired of the "university boys' stories."

Hi, Is this tour suitable for navigating with a buggy / stroller? Are there sections of the trip (esp. inside the libary and others) which can't be done with a buggy?

So Footprints apparently has paid tours and free (tipping of guide expected) walking tours of Oxford. They are both 2 hours. Anybody know what the difference is between them, or are they essentially the same tour?
