Au programme

A small-group walking tour is the best way to see Oxford, a vibrant city steeped in history with amazing architecture & the prestigious Oxford University. Enjoy a relaxed & informative tour any time of the year come rain or shine with a small group of people. You will see Oxford's most famous sites, discover parts of the city that many visitors don't see, see inside a college (*), hear about Oxford's literary greats & visit Harry Potter film locations. Along the route, you will see ancient buildings, colleges, theatres, libraries, a market, gardens and a tranquil river. We visit a Gelateria for award-winning gelato or the best hot chocolate, then later an ancient pub to cool down in the summer & warm up in the winter!

Most Oxford tours are with large groups lasting just 90 minutes, whereas guests who have taken this small group, 2.5-hour tour, love its intimate & relaxed nature, plus they enjoy meeting fellow travellers from the Airbnb community - I hope you do as well. Come as a stranger, leave as a friend!

If you are not an Airbnb member, contact me via myoxfordtravel.

During the current COVID-19 UK restrictions the health and well-being of my guests is extremely important, so measures such as face masks, hand sanitisation, group size limited to 10 and keeping to quieter areas will be applied.

This was the second time a did this tour. I still found it fun, interesting and engaging. Tony clearly has a love for Oxford which comes across in his story telling, both historical and personal.

a really engaging and insightful tour with lots of history, cultural anecdotes and pop culture references. A super concise but not rushed way to see the best of Oxford. Highly recommended

Coming from the US and moving to the UK during a pandemic isn't for the faint of heart. Exploring Oxford was our first "venture out" in over a year. And WOW!-- Tony was so amazing. He is super laid-back, personable, and knowledgable about his home city. My husband and I loved the tour and would recommend it to anyone! WEAR COMFY SHOES because it is a lot of walking! :) Oh, and we called in advance and Tony let us bring our little dog with us for the tour. He loved it as well. :) Tony ended the tour at a local pub, and we took advantage of the experience. I wish he would have grabbed a pint with us so we could pick his brain a bit more. He is just such a lovely person. We explored Oxford on day two and wish we would have had him alongside to give us more historical and fun facts! Loved Tony!

What an amazing tour guide Tony is. He made us both feel very welcome and throughout the tour had a wealth of knowledge he was only too happy to share with us. A nice touch was he was interested in us as people, not just as paying customers. Was keen to find out where we had travelled too previously and therefore made the whole experience more personal. His knowledge of the colleges, famous scholars and film locations around the city were second to none. A definite highlight of the tour was the offer to go punting. Due to the recent rainfall the current was strong, which made for an entertaining trip down the river. We were lucky that we had such an expert punter aboard to keep us afloat and heading in the right direction-ish 😉😂. Haven’t had that much fun in a long time. Would highly recommend the tour with Tony and for that added “thrill” let Tony share his punting skills with you, you won’t be disappointed 👍👍 5 star Review without hesitation. Thank you Tony

I spent a wonderfully enjoyable 2.5 hours in Tony’s company on this walking tour. It was like being shown around by a thoroughly knowledgeable friend. Tony’s delivery is very natural and he has a real passion for the subject matter. The architecture and history of Oxford is mesmerising, and was brought to life for me during this tour, which I would highly recommend.

Today we joined Tony on his walking tour around Oxford and we are so pleased we did! We both had such a lovely time. Tony’s knowledge of the area was great and really informative. He’s really personable and passionate about the area he calls home. We’d normally walk around areas looking at the buildings we’d find recommended online, loosely understanding the history but booking this tour has really changed how we’ll sightsee in the future. Covid restrictions during this trip have impacted on the full experience of a lot of attractions (which we understood would be the case and we’re fine with) even though we couldn’t go inside the buildings which you can with Tony normally, neither of us felt like we missed out. Would book again!
