Au programme

Meet in the heart of this City. Follow in the footsteps of some extraordinary people who have been this way before you. Einstein or Morse, Harry Potter or Alice in Wonderland (she was real!). The great, the good and the not so good have inhabited this place. Whilst we look at the magical buildings and Colleges with their strange and often bizarre traditions you will meet a huge cast of characters with their own extraordinary stories. See which College George Washington's three times great-grandfather was a student and who paid off his debts . What was James l tricked into doing and where did Charles 1 and his Queen live before he lost the civil war and his head.
You will hear how the university came about and the difference between it and a College. I can advise you on most things to see and do in the city much of it Free. (covid permitting)And where you can find the best pubs. Great for couples and groups.
Other things to note:
Check the weather forecast and wear suitable clothing and shoes. In summer sun screen and a hat would be advisable.

My tours are not boring! I have a great deal of knowledge about Oxford but you will not be swamped with facts and figures. The emphasis is on having a great two hours together with lots of stories, traditions and information about the university and student life. Wander through the hidden parts that many do not discover.

Destinations

We will take in the historic heart of the university. The Bodleian Library, Clarendon Building and Radcliffe Camera. We shall visit a College and I will explain student life. We will wander through the Covered Market with its independent shops and mini Brewery and go down the back lanes to find the pubs where many a famous face has has called in for a drink. I hope to show you things and tell you things that you would not have found on your own

Despite horrible weather conditions and me being a single person on tour, Christine did the whole 2 h walk, and told me a lot of interesting things about Oxford. It was quite a unique experience having a private tour. Thanks 🙏

It was so interesting to learn how Oxford came to be a centre of learning, and about the particular building we saw the outside of(no interiors due to Covid!) + some extra insights from the Morse tour!

Fascinating tour by an official Oxford Guild guide who really knows her stuff. Two hours long, but it flew by as we walked through the enchanting streets of Oxford. Christine really puts you at your ease and gave lots of fascinating info without ever the feeling that there is too much. My favourite bits were all the tidbits of info about filming locations for Harry Potter, Philip Pullman, Inspector Morse and its spinoffs, etc.

Christine was very knowledgeable, she tailored the tour to our interests and we felt we got a lot out of our very short time in Oxford because of the tour. She and my daughter shared an interest in the same books. Recommend!
