Anne was very knowledgeable about the area and the university. A few of the colleges were closed, including Christ Church, and that would have been good to know beforehand so we could have scheduled an alternate time to visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, I am sorry about that. Anne.

Our guide had excellent knowledge of the campus and the history of England and Oxford in general. She helped us understand a lot of what we were seeing from the outside and the inside of the churches and buildings. Please be aware that this is a walking tour so wear you comfortable shoes. Anne is a great, fast walker and you will cover a lot of ground.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind feedback. Oxford is a little spread out so we need to walk 3 to 4.5 miles to see the places of greatest interest in the three hours available. However, the tour can be shorter if arranged in advance. Best regards Anne

We had a wonderful day in Oxford with Anne! Having a guide through the town and buildings made our visit so much more informative and enjoyable. Anne is very knowledgeable, pointing out locations and providing historical context to bring our walk to life. She was also mindful of my particular dietary needs and sought out lunch options we might enjoy at the conclusion of our time together. I will never forget my day in Oxford and hope to return for another visit in future travels! Thank you, Anne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jana Thank you for such a wonderful review, I'm so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed the tour. Spring is coming so that should help. We've had temperatures of up to 70 degrees F over the last few days. The gardens are lovely with masses of snowdrops and with a few daffodils starting to flower. Carry on watching Oford on TV. There is a new series of Endeavour on now. Take care both of you. Anne

Anne customized the tour for us to meet a wide range of interests of our small group. She is thoroughly knowledgeable, personable, and professional. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and saw so much more of Oxford than we could have managed on our own. Worth every penny. Thank you, Anne!

Excellent tour, Anne and I had communicated by email and she included everything I had asked about. We went from C.S. Lewis to Tolkien to Harry Potter, plus lots of history. She chose a beautiful walk by the river and past a pasture. She even remembered to include areas of interest relating to the Jewish community. After the tour, she helped me figure out how to go to C.S. Lewis' house and grave. This is my much anticipated " trip of a lifetime". Anne was a big part of making it everything I had dreamt.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sari, Thank you so much for your kind comments. May you enjoy the rest of your trip. Best, Anne

The students enjoyed their trip but the additional expenses for entrance fees after the guide had been paid for were thought to be a little steep and they were quite surprised that they were not included in the original fee.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very pleased that your clients enjoyed the tour, they are a lovely mother and daughter. I'm sorry to hear that they were surprised that the entrance fees were not included but it was made clear in the tour description.

Anne was very friendly well versed. She carefully explained the college system, she knew the back streets and took the time to show us places to visit after our tour as well as restaurant and shopping choices. It was graduation day at several of the colleges which made for a crowded city but Anne guided us around like a true professional. We even had an opportunity to visit the Shelley Memorial and a quick stop at the Turf Tavern. I would highly recommend this tour to all first time visitors to Oxford.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review, I'm very pleased that you enjoyed the tour.

No one could have done a better job showing Oxford at its most interesting. My guests for whom I'd booked the tour, varied in age, education and interests. Anne managed to arrange their tour so that each felt it was especially tailored for them. They all came home buzzing with excitement and, what was most rewarding for me, a burning wish to learn more.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind comments. I hope your guests enjoy the rest of their time in the UK.
