Hi I am Heidi and I run Walking Tours of Oxford. My background has always been in travel and it is an industry that I love. 10 years ago I undertook the 'Green Badge' Guide training in Oxford which involved a 6 months intense training course with a series of written and verbal examinations at the end. Guiding in Oxford has become not only my full time occupation but also my passion and I enjoy meeting people from the UK and all over the world to show them this amazing city and give them an insight into living and studying here. My eldest son is a student at Oxford University and this has given me a greater knowledge of student life.
