What you'll do

A small group walking tour is the best way to see Oxford, a vibrant city steeped in history with amazing architecture & the prestigious Oxford University. Enjoy an relaxed & informative tour anytime of the year come rain or shine with a small group of people. You will see Oxford's most famous sights, discover parts of the city that many visitors don't see, hear about Oxford's literary greats & see Harry Potter film locations. Along the route you will see ancient buildings, colleges, theatres, libraries, a market, gardens and a tranquil river. We visit an award winning Gelatia for gelato or coffee, then later an ancient pub to cool down in the summer & warm up in the winter! Tours can be tailored to meet your requirements, so if there is something you would like to see or would like to take the tour on a day not available, then just contact me & I will be happy to assist. Most other Oxford tours are with large groups lasting just 90 minutes, whereas guests who have taken this small group, 2.5 hour tour, love it’s intimate & relaxed nature, plus they enjoy meeting fellow travelers from the Airbnb community - I hope you do as well. Come as a stranger, leave as a friend!
