Lizzie was an excellent guide and brought her personality to the tour. Exeter was beautiful and a picture of what it must be like to study here. Story of All Souls entrance and intake fascinating - large building for such a small number!

Lucy was confident in delivering her subject matter and was able to answer questions asked during the tour. She was knowledgable and facilitated good engagement without the subject being dry. Overall an exciting tour and wished it was a bit longer.

Super couple of hours, really enjoyed learning more about how the University of Oxford works and what it's like to be a student there. Good to go inside the grounds of one of the Colleges and see how the buildings are used. Would recommend this tour for anyone who wants an overview of student life at Oxford and also a brief understanding of some of the history of the landmark buildings.
