I offer a wide range of guided tours plus some other activities like river cruise trips along the Thames with Mad Hatter tea party picnic. Oxford city walking tours last average 90-120 minutes. Cycle tours last longer & include bike hire.
I also offer guided tours beyond Oxford. In fact, I used to work as a guide for a coach company, so I am familiar guiding in a wide range of destinations such as eg discovering Jane Austen's Bath heritage, the Cotswolds, Blenheim palace or Stonehenge, Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon, Windsor, London, Winchester, Cambridge and even as far afield as even Brighton. I can either meet you in those other destinations or if you may want me to help you arrange transport to these destinations, I may be able to help organise that too but any such transport costs would cost extra to rates quoted here.
I have highlighted the capacity to offer tours in other languages than English for an additional fee, as this can be arranged with a translator. I also speak several languages myself as my background is in language teaching & early childhood education.
Whatever your interests may be and whether or not you are booking for your family with children or for your workmates or for a special occasion, we can cater the tour around interests which you make known to us. I would say that a good guide is someone who finds out your interests & can extend those interests with additional knowledge. My previous customers can recommend my tours as being interactive and educational plus humorous. I look forward to your booking requests or inquiries.
A Recent Review of this guide
Alasdair is quite the character, an entertaining and knowledgeable guide, who will take you where you want to go. After a day touring colleges we were delighted to ride through the meadows and visit the nearby countryside that many visitors would fail to notice. The rise is easy paced and can be handled by the 70+ crowd like us. Highly recommended.
