Full description

This acclaimed Walking Tour of Oxford combines sightseeing around the historic heart of the city and University with visits to a selection of Oxford’s oldest and greatest colleges, plus the Divinity School, one of the great architectural masterpieces of the University in the Bodleian Library.  Along the way, you will explore college gardens, halls, and chapels and learn about the evolution of the University from a rag-tag of ungovernable halls to the premier university it is today.  Learn about its feuds and foibles, achievements and ambitions, and why its alumni still hold sway over much of the British Establishment. Hear tales of how "Town and Gown" have got along, (or not), with each other over the centuries. And much, much more. This is a pre-booked private tour to suits all ages, interests and budgets, each tour meticulously organised to meet your individual or group requirements, in the company of a first class guide. In addition, whether its the arts, music, wining, dining, pubs, punting, cycle hire, or just hanging loose in the city, your guide will recommend where to go and what not to miss out on.

Would definitely recommend it.

Seeing Oxford with a personal guide was fun and interesting, something I would do again.
