Au programme

We will start with a whirlwind overview of Oxford as the central player in 1,000 years of British history, and giving guests an understanding of how the sprawling institution operates before embarking on the tour.

Navigating down the windy alleyways we will get an insiders take on the little known viewing angles that bring across the drama of the world famous architecture in this city. With striking spires and imposing buildings, we will cover how these influenced Tolkien, C S Lewis, along with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Once COVID-19 closures have been lifted, we will enter one of the oldest Colleges at Oxford, renowned for its beautiful gardens, before heading into one of the most famous Library's in the world - responsible for over 13 million books. Capping this off we will cover a Harry Potter film site, along with why the most powerful religious figure England has ever seen, was burnt alive in the centre of Oxford, on what is now such a nondescript part of road you could easily miss it.

Please note: Colleges and the Library can shut without notice and currently they are unavailable. If this changes on the day we will of course incorporate them!

Having attended Oxford University, this gave me a unique and personal insight into this world famous institution beyond what you can read in the guide books. I have been providing tours for over 8 years to visitors from around the world, and have made it a mission to go beyond that dry, boring, historical facts - but to bring across the vibrant, diverse and influential history of the amazing institution. I also now work with other equally passionate guides, to bring you the best Oxford has to show, in a uniquiely authentic way!

Went on tour late May 2021. Couldn’t go into buildings (not the tours fault though!). Overall was good value for money and Duncan’s knowledge, approachfulness and friendliness was a real positive. Overall highly recommend

Great value tour and interesting even for younger teens. Having a guide to take you round the highlights of the colleges and city's history made the day so much more enjoyable. We really felt we learned a lot. Thank you Footprints!

I had a wonderful tour with Adam in Oxford. This is something else, not the usual boring tour you can find all over the world but a really fascinating, and funny tour. Adam, was one of the best tour guides I have ever encountered in my travels. His knowledge of Oxford and its university was significant, and he was witty and friendly. The tour was really well organised, and it seems this is the tour company to go to if you are in Oxford. I highly recommend this experience!

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Adam yesterday. He is a knowledgeable and engaging guide with endless amusing anecdotes. I would absolutely recommend this tour. The small group size meant that we felt safe and we could hear everything despite the masks!

The walking tour with Daniella was terrific. While this wasn't my first time in Oxford I learned so many new things about the university, the buildings, and the traditions.The tour was full of funny details and anecdotes like the one about the duck hunting, but my personal favourite was the tortoise race one, with the mystery of Rosa Luxemburg. Even though we could not go inside a college or the Divinity School due to Covid restrictions, we had a wonderful time as a group. Daniella was very friendly, approachable, and informative. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Oxford.
