Private Walking Tour of Oxford for the Discerning Traveler
From US$ 131.55
Overview
Get the inside scoop on Oxford's storied history on this private walking tour. Through your dedicated guide's informative narration, learn about the evolution of the university and all the achievements that have taken place there. Enjoy a flexible itinerary, personalized attention and plenty of time to ask questions, since this is a private tour for just you and your party.
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.
