Itinerary

On all tours, we see some of the best sights in Oxford & introduce student life, college traditions, Oxford writers & English history in Oxford.

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.

Tours last average 90-120 minutes. If you wish to discuss booking a longer extended tour, that can be discussed for an additional charge.

Transportation

Walking Tour

What’s Included

Other: Guided tour in English. Entry into one or more of the free entry colleges which may be open on the day or time when you book the tour.

What’s Extra

Other: Please note due to considerable queues into Christchurch, it is the only college which I don't take you into on this particular general tour. Likewise, be default, these tours are conducted in English but if you wish to book a tour conducted in a foreign language, I can usually arrange a colleague to help interpret for a surcharge fee of £40 paid in cash on the day.

A Recent Review of this tour

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