Bespoke Oxford Walking Tour with a Private Guide

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    As a bespoke tour, each tour is as individual as you are and it depends on many different factors, such as the time of the visit, group size, group members' age and any specific interest you and your group may have. However all tours will cover the view from the outside of any of the colleges, The Bodleian Library, Old School Quadrangle, The Weston Library, The Divinity School, The Clarendon Building, The Sheldonian Theatre, The Radcliffe Camera, University Church of St Mary The Virgin and the Bridge of Sighs. It can also be possible to arrange any other sites of specific interest to you as well as the possibility to visit inside a college (subject to opening hour and fees).

    At the end of the tour, you will be provided with a free map and suggestions how to enjoy the rest of your time in Oxford. If you would like to visit inside a college then there maybe an additional charge which is in addition and paid direct to the venue on the day.

    Your guide is fully qualified and a member of The Institute of Tourist Guiding as well as The Oxford Guild of Tour Guides.

    We had a private tour with Edward Taylor which was superb! He has exceptional knowledge coupled with a great manner. Definitely one of the best tours I’ve ever done.

    Heidi can do anything your son wishes. The tour focused on all authors including the two you mention. Have no fear the tour is excellent and can be altered based on request. Kind regards, Mark
