Archie was excellent on our tour for a group of school children. He was interesting, engaging and incorporated just the right touch of humour. Would definitely recommend the tour.

Enjoyed the tour, very informative HOWEVER we both thought that any personal views about removing or turning around Cecil Rhodes statue should not be expressed. We personally disagree and think you can't change history nor should we attempt to in anyway. Learning from history is a different story!

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. My guide Jim was friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. I was fascinated by the history of the city and University and liked learning about the historic figures and their contributions to the University development and buildings. Jim also told me about films and buildings used for Harry Potter and Marvel films plus Morse and other TV settings. This was exactly what I wanted so I was doubly pleased.

It was a cold day and we were freezing! But Archie braved the cold with us even with a jacket I thought was way too light for the weather. Very informative private tour for just me and my husband and we could clearly see that Archie was very enthusiastic and passionate about the stories and history behind all of the architecture and colleges that he pointed out to us. Well worth the money and we're glad that we took this tour, especially since we were only in Oxford for a few hours and wanted to make sure that we got the most out of the trip that we could.

Despite the cold weather we had a 2 hour walk with anecdotes from our guide who was an alumni. We followed his suggestions after the walk.
