Our guide Bella was excellent and we would highly recommend Walking Tours of Oxford for your private tour of Oxford.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Elizabeth. She had done lots of preparation in advance and so was able to tailor our itinerary to my daughter’s interests (she is a prospective applicant to the university). We came away with a really good feel for the university and colleges.

Heidi did a private walking tour for our wedding party as one of our activities on our wedding weekend and it was a massive hit with our guests! She was fantastic and gave a brilliant tour, it was fascinating to hear about Oxford along with nuggets of knowledge that you wouldn't hear anywhere else. Heidi is really engaging and tailored our tour with some fun Harry Potter facts as she knew we are big fans! Would 100% recommend!

As part of a Harry Potter themed hen party we booked a private Harry Potter tour. Heidi was fantastic. She took us to lots of places across the city, included information about other authors and she did her best to me sure we could see some inside sights despite covid. Heidi was friendly and knowledgeable and would definitely book her again if I came back to Oxford. Thank you!

Leigh took our family on a private tour of the colleges of Oxford, sketching the history and illustrating with the details (grotesques, gargoyles, heraldic shields, towers, carvings, historical characters, etc.) she pointed out to us as we walked. I was a little worried the kids (13 & 14yo) might lose interest and get a little bored but they loved it. Fascinated and inspired. Leigh obviously has the knowledge and importantly the contacts to add serious value. High recommended! Thanks Leigh!
