Tour: Additional Oxford 90 minutes walking tour ADD ON for Blenheim tour or Christchurch or Cycle Tour clients only, Oxford, England, United Kingdom
Date: Oct 23/19

Really nice tour of Oxford. No doubt we learned and saw a lot more with Alasdair leading us through the town and collages. The little bits of history interspersed with the pop culture of tv and movies were great. We did the Blenheim Palace tour after Oxford. Alasdair was really helpful here as well, but the rule changes at the Palace didn't allow him in as a guide. We were aware of this prior to the tour, but in retrospect I would do the self guided tour of the Palace.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stephen, Thanks for sharing your experience and recommending the tour.

Alasdair was a delight to be with in every way. I was traveling with my daughter and niece and we visited Oxford in mid June. He tailored the tour to our specifications and had lots of great anecdotes. He made the tour informing as well as a lot of fun. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Julie, Thanks for leaving such a lovely review. As I used to teach young kids, it's nice to sometimes have younger children on tours. Sincerely

Tour: #342680, Oxford to the Cotswolds villages full day trip with transport provided by car or minibus, Oxford, England, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: May 27/19

Alasdair and our driver Andrew did an outstanding job showing me around MANY villages in the Cotswolds region outside of Oxford. They were knowledgeable about the area and it's history, personable, and a joy to spend the day with. From the moment they picked me up I felt I was in good hands. And they picked the perfect place to stop for lunch! Highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Alasdair. He keeps it lively with lots of stories and bits of history. Unlike other guides, he didn't stand in one place forever "lecturing" us. It was more like a conversation with a friend who really knows his stuff. And he's funny too. Highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sheila, Thanks for the super review! Sincerely, Alasdair

Had a great walking tour of Oxford with Alasdair last week. He certainly knows his way around Oxford, is well-spoken, knows his British history, and is an all-around good guy. He obviously has good relations with lots of people in the various colleges. He even got us in to a couple of the college dining halls. Also recommended a very good, out-of-the-way pub -- Old Bookbinders -- that we taxied to after the walking tour. If visiting Oxford, I would definitely recommend a tour with Alasdair!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi again. Thanks so much for your great recommendation. Sincerely, Alasdair

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.

Tour: Harry Potter tour group size 10-14 persons, Oxford, England, United Kingdom
Date: May 5/18

Alasdair was incredibly knowledgable and very good at explaining things to all age groups. Our group included 7 children, aged 9 to 16, as well as 4 non-English speakers. Alasdair was very flexible with our plan, and modified it to fit everone's needs and interests as we walked through Oxford. Alasdair was also helpful in planning our visit and provided us with extremely good lunch recommendations. This ensured that we did not lose valuable time during our short stay in Oxford.
