We had a fantastic tour with David, visiting Harry Potter, Tolkien, and Alice in Wonderland sites. David went above and beyond to make it fun for a variety of ages--keeping an 11-year-old, 18-year-old, 48-year-old and 58-year-old. He was able to be flexible and add sites on the fly. He brought wonderful props for photos and took group shots for us... More

Last Friday Elizabeth from Oxford City Walk showed our group of 8 this lovely city. I used a different guide from a different company a few months ago which I thought was ok. But Elizabeth was absolutely fantastic, a very knowledgeable lady, easy to understand for some members in our group who where no native speakers and with a nice... More

We've booked a private walking tour with David (3 people) and loved every second of it. David probably knows every stone, college person and story in Oxford and we have spent a wonderful morning discovering this great city with him. Thanks again!

We went on to pause outside... More

My wife and I met David on a chilly winter's morning. The next few hours flew by as David entertained, informed and enthralled us. His knowledge of Oxford is encyclopaedic but there is nothing arid in how he shares it. Out of the way places and quirky historical facts tailored a little to what David rightly understood to be our... More

My mother and I went on a private 3 hour walking tour with David last week. The first words out of my mouth when we parted ways were, "I think I'm going to miss David!"... He was one of the most knowledgable and passionate tour guides that I have ever encountered and his enthusiasm was contagious. We learned so much... More

My girlfriend and I went on xmas eve morning. David met us at our hotel and took us for a very detailed and interesting walking tour. The amount you see and learn in 2 hours is fantastic... Including entering some college grounds. Would absolutely recommend David and his tour to anyone who vistis Oxford.

David was a fabulous host to our extended family of 8. We had a private walking tour and David tailored it to our liking. It was fun and informative. We were able to go for as long as we liked. He especially helped us to understand the college system which was fascinating and he had marvelous stories of collegian antics... More

Thanks so much to David for an excellent tour. He took our family of 8 on a private guided tour and tailored it to our interests showing us classic places seen in Harry Potter and giving us lots of information about all the scientists that have passed through the city.

David possesses a wealth of knowledge about Oxford, but equally important he is possessed of a great deal of charm and wit -- a splendid combination which makes him a marvelous companion for a day of sight-seeing. He was able to keep the undivided attention of our group of fifteen women throughout the day, sprinkling his narrative with bits of... More
