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

Thanks to David from Oxford City Walk we spent a wonderful afternoon in the enchanting city of Oxford.

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

We could not have asked for a more charming tour guide than David! He kept our whole group captivated and made history come to life. We were completely engaged by his interesting stories and he even entertained us with a few funny poems and songs! It was an unforgettable experience!

David was just awesome. He knew so much, it was just astounding. He tailored the tour based on our requests and even made the effort to take us to more colleges based on our request. Best tour ever.

My friend and I were so pleased and lucky to find David and spend an evening with him showing us around Oxford. His love and enthusiasm for the history and city of Oxford was contagious. His extensive knowledge about everything to do with English history in general was just astounding, and we left after our tour completely delighted.

Being from Boston, Oxford is reminiscent of Harvard in Cambridge, MA. It's great to catch a glimpse inside the different areas which are closed to tourists but enough doors randomly open for a peek. The town itself is also attractive. There's a real sense of history there. Get a good guide to really explain what you are visiting.
