There is no fixed route plan as where we go & which colleges we visit inside will all depend on what time of day or what time of year you choose to book & according to what special interests you may communicate to me in advance or at the start of your tour. Please note some colleges have free entrance, others charge. We don't include entry into Christchurch on this tour as it has awful queues. In addition, colleges close to visitors at about 5pm, so if you book a tour to start after 5pm, we can't normally visit inside any colleges but we can see lots of colleges on our route at any time.
We often visit inside university colleges such as St Johns, Exeter or Wadham (free) or New college which costs £4 in summer or Balliol £3 or Magdalane £5 or the Divinity school at the Bodleian library £1.

Great tour. Somewhat of a whirlwind. Maybe add option to make the tour longer.
