  • Oxford University Tour With Alumni
    We will start with a whirlwind overview of Oxford as the central player in 1,000 years of British history, and giving guests an understanding of how the sprawling institution operates before embarking on the tour. Navigating down the windy alleyways we will get an insiders take on the little known viewing angles that bring across the drama of the world famous architecture in this city. With striking spires and imposing buildings, we will cover how these influenced Tolkien, C S Lewis, along with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. We will enter one of the oldest Colleges at Oxford, renowned for its beautiful gardens, before heading into one of the most famous Library's in the world - responsible for over 13 million books. Capping this off we will cover a Harry Potter film site, along with why the most powerful religious figure England has ever seen, was burnt alive in the centre of Oxford, on what is now such a nondescript part of road you could easily miss it. Please note: Colleges and the Library can shut without notice and currently they are available as of August 2021. If this changes on the day we will of course incorporate them - if we are not able to offer any access, we will offer up the option of a full refund.

  • Oxford city walking tour with a local
    A family-friendly small-group Oxford walking tour is the best way to see our amazing vibrant city, steeped in history with amazing architecture & the prestigious Oxford University. Enjoy a relaxed & informative Oxford walking tour any time of the year come rain or shine with a small group of people. In a tour to suit all ages, you will see Oxford's most famous sites, discover parts of the city that many visitors don't see, learn about Oxford University & its traditions, 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 walking tours have large groups of people & are highly scripted, whereas guests who have taken this small-group 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! You can also book a private tour for your family group to get a truly intimate & fun tour. If you enjoy photography, then I can show you some of the best places to take photos from. If you are not an Airbnb member, contact me via myoxfordtravel.

  • Oxford's famous and hidden gems
    Oxford’s city centre is a concentration of all you want to know. Within a relatively small area there are hundreds of years of history which we will be experiencing by walking for a couple of hours. We will tour the famous sights and learn about the culture, reasons and history behind what we see. We will hear about the famous Oxford personalities, who shaped the world and learn about their world. We will also discover more hidden places, the ones tourists (and many locals) don’t know about. I will point out the locations of world famous films and the stunning hidden architecture. This is a tour for very small groups as I want you to feel comfortable and able to ask questions. If there is any particular requirement, just ask and I will do my utter best to accommodate you. Most of the times, it would be your own private tour. We will meet outside the Randolph Hotel, on Beaumont Street, opposite the Ashmolean Museum and start our adventure from there. Other things to note My tours are suitable for families and children under 10 come for free. We will be passing many shops during our walk where you can buy drinks and snacks if needed. This tour is wheelchair and child friendly. As the group size is very small you will almost certainly enjoy a fully private tour.

  • Iconic Oxford Private Photoshoot
    This is a private and personal session. Do you want to take away some great photographs of yourself in Oxford, to remember your time here? Or, some beautiful Instagram content that you couldn't easily take yourself? I will do that for you. Whilst moving between iconic locations of Oxford, we will explore the Bodleian Library, the Bridge of Sighs, the Radcliffe Camera, Christ Church Meadows, and surrounding areas. I will also take you via hidden gem locations to show you the real personality behind the bustle and red telephone boxes. I aim to show and capture the true essence of the city. This is a great experience for individuals, couples, families, and friends! If you would like to have your photoshoot inside the Oxford Botanical Gardens, or one of the Colleges, the entrance fee for one person other than myself is included in the cost :) The price for a couple is the same as for one person. If there are more than 3 people, please ‘Book for a Private Group’. Feel free to contact me if the dates you want to shoot at are not showing up on my calendar. I’m more than happy to accommodate you! Other things to note Let me know in advance if there's anywhere in particular you'd like to be photographed at, and I will try to accommodate it.
