    Would definitely recommend this walking tour as a great insight into Oxford. Length and composition very good. Very knowledgeable guide. Go early as possible in the day to make the most of suggested follow up visits later in the day.

    Thank you for your review - the best way to see (and understand Oxford) is defiantly on a walking tour. I agree, a morning tour is the best way to maximise your time in this beautiful city! With best wishes Heidi

    Our blue badge tour guide knew her stuff and delivered it well. It was a great introduction to the University but the history of Oxford was rather an afterthought. The Civil War warranted the briefest of mentions, for example

    Edward (our guide) was very knowledgeable, relaxed and enthusiastic, making this tour very interesting and a must do if not familiar with the Oxbridge university structure. Small group also made it more personal.

    Thank you! Your review title does sum it up perfectly - there are some cities / locations where you benefit greatly from a qualified guide showing you around and Oxford is one such place otherwise you miss so much. We have really tried to maximise what you see on our 'Simply Oxford' tour and cover all the main highlights - we also restrict numbers are there are so many large tour groups in Oxford and that is just not the service we want to provide. The Simply Oxford has a maximum of around 12 people and often smaller so you can interact with the guide. Thank you again and I will pass onto Edward who will be delighted you enjoyed the tour. Best wishes Heidi
