From a snowy night with Mr Tumnus to Einstein’s error
Magnus gave us a generous hour and a half tour through a sunny Oxford. Rammed with matriculating students and alive with chat. Magnus entertained us courteously giving us little nuggets of history which made us want to know more and come back. His enthusiasm for the place and the people of Oxford shone through. Thanks Magnus. Definitely recommend your tour

Well worth it
Simon our guide was a wealth of knowledge, engaging and kept everyone’s interest throughout the whole 90mins. Great way to see and hear about Oxford history, the colleges and get tips from a local of places to visit in the city.

Had an excellent tour with Simon on Sunday morning, he was a wealth of historical and philosophical knowledge, and it was lovely to view the college buildings and get onward recommendations on the best museums! Good to book in at the beginning of your stay in Oxford and they give an excellent map!

A delightful walk in the October sunshine.
We had the pleasure of being taken around today by Iain - a very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour. He was informative but we felt also very friendly and had some great answers to some great questions ! Good banter with the group and a few laughs too. Would thoroughly recommend this tour - thanks Iain from the Borehamwood crew!!
