We were not impressed by our tour guides or the tour itself. One appeared to be a trainee and was barely able to form a coherent sentence. Alasdair tried to step in from time to time, but offered very little to the presentation except for some jokes. We had to arrange from a tour of Christ Church separately and did... More

My daughter and I had actually signed up for the two hour Oxford bike tour with Visit Oxford Tours, but after touring various cities and rural areas via a rental car (lets just say it was not a stress-free experience navigating England's extremely narrow and winding roads in a mini Vauxhall Corsa), she decided she was not interested in braving...

This tour was incredible. I live in the area and decided to book this tour because I had family visiting. After the tour, I couldn't believe how much of Oxford I had missed after all these years. We were a group of 4 adults, 2 teens, and 3 young children. Our tour guide was Alastair, and all of us were... More

My partner and I decided to take part in the walking tour to discover more about Oxford and its history.

An informative tour that covered lots of ground. Good communication prior to meeting and we arranged a special meeting place on the outskirts. Appreciated the flexibility. Scrambled start as the guide had a bicyle problem but we covered lots in three hours. Visited a college and other buildings. A mix of Alice (main content) Oxford history and Harry Potter. Quite...

We originally booked the Inspector Morse tour but Alaistair phoned to explain he wasn't available for the day we wanted so we opted for the offered alternative general tour with Peter rather than a refund. He was excellent, full of information on the Colleges and town in general. Visits were tailored to our interests over 3 rather than 2 hours.

This tour was perfect for my family. We all love Harry Potter, so visiting some of the film sites was hugely enjoyable. We also thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the inside of the colleges, and learning about the University, it's history and literary heritage. Our tour guide was Caterina, and she was so lovely! Nothing was too much trouble for her, and... More
