It had been a life long wish to see the buildings of Oxford University and the tour enabled us to do just that. Without the tour, we wouldn't have gained such an insight into the history of the university buildings along with delightful snippets of student life both past and present.

Jessica was excellent and made it very interesting. Only disappointment was that on the info it implied we would see inside the Harry Potter locations : Bodleian library, hall, the staircase etc however we saw none of that..they had informed us we weren't able to enter the Divinity Room that day which we accepted but we expected to see the rest.

Had great time with my Dad. Maggie was quite engaging, patiently answered our questions and made sure no one was left behind. Her experience about University being an oxford student was quite intriguing. Inside view of Exeter college was impressive. She shared insights about colleges and her conversations were captivating. Couldn’t see Bodlein lib from inside due to an event. Overall very happy experience. Will def recommend. Thanks Maggie!
