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

I do enjoy English City walks and do one or more whenever I can. This is one I truly enjoy and it is worth a visit for everyone stopping in Oxford. Highly recommend. Great for all ages, even though there is a significant amount of walking involved. reservations are recommended in advance. However, if the tour group has room, they... More

The kids in our party (teenagers plus one 8-year-old), whose patience and attention span for sightseeing... More

We did not manage to visit the city as we couldn't park up, we have travelled with 2 cars and I regret not to use park and ride service as we wasted an hour to try to park somewhere, on a Sunday everything was full. What we seen from dicing around was awesome, definitely will go back to visit with... More

David Gunnell was the guide for our Group Tour yesterday. He tailored the walk to our requirements perfectly even after having to create a new itinery on the spot, due to our late arrival. ( Thanks M40 !). Kind, patient & unfazed he relaxed us. We began with hugely interesting tour of Christ Church and then outside to the many... More
