Doc Trevor was entertaining and very knowledgable. I thought my Dad might get bored during the 2hrs, but he loved it. It was lovely to be shown around by an actual student of the University.

We had an absolutely amazing walking tour with Marianne. Her knowledge of Oxford is quite remarkable. We were really impressed with the way she told us a story rather than just didactically feeding us the information. We would thoroughly recommend these tours.
