Private Walking Tour of Oxford for the Discerning Traveler

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 127.26

    What to Expect
    You and your private party will meet your guide at the Weston Library, part of Oxford's main research library. Alternatively, pickup is available at your Oxford city hotel or the Oxford Railway station.

    Set out on foot to explore both the historic city's downtown heart and a selection of the university's famous colleges. Learn about its feuds and foibles, achievements and ambitions, and why its alumni still hold sway over much of the British Establishment. Hear tales of how 'Town and Gown' have got along, (or not), with each other over the centuries. On campus, explore the interior of the Divinity School and some of the other hallowed colleges.

    Walk away from your tour with a good idea of places you'd like to revisit and recommendations from your guide on other activities and restaurants to enjoy in the area.
