I highly recommend this guided tour of Oxford! Interesting historical facts aboit Oxford with a personal insight from a student is the best eay to learn and experience this beautiful city. The tour takes 2 hours and it leaves you with enough time to then walk around and see the library and the museum. I recommend taking a eary tour (11 am) - we took a toir at 2pm wich left us with only 1 hour for the library and the museum ( not enkugh time). It takes about 90 min. by Oxford tube from London Victoria to Oxford High Street. The Oxford tube line rides to and from Oxford at least twice an hour and it is a nice way of getting to and from Oxford. Our tour guide Meghan was funny and friendly. We finished our day trip to Oxford with a visit to library and the museum, book store, Oxford outlet store and of course, some Fish and Chips with a glass of amber beer! What a wonderful day in a beautiful city of Oxford!

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour. Anastasia was one of the best guides we’ve ever tried, and getting the student perpective along with the history, building and cultural facts was perfect. A lot of fun stories and it enriched our visit to Oxford greatly. The group size was also small, but I’m not sure if this was just coincidence.

We enjoyed the tour. It was much shorter than advertised. We took a tour of Oxford the day before. I believe it was the same company. We enjoyed that one a bit more. Becky was very nice. But James tour guide at Oxford really sold us on Oxford (over Cambridge).
