We got into ONE college and NOT the Bodleian as promised on the literature. Shame I had to give it one star, it deserves none. The guide was ill-informed - he needs a very basic history lesson about the reformation instead of announcing to credulous...More

Very informative and concise tour. Our guide was Katherine who was very responsive to all questions asked, most welcoming and very knowledgeable. All in all a wonderful 2 hours.

Badly presented, ill-informed patronising twaddle. A total waste of £13 (per person). The promo leaflet bears no relation to where you actually go, and some of what the guide tells you is nonsense. I'd give it less stars if I could.

I enjoyed my walking tour of Oxford Colleges with our tour guide Stuart. However, I was disappointed with one tone deaf comment from our guide. When we entered the Trinity College dining hall, the portraits had been replaced with female graduates from Trinity, in celebration...More

Our tour guide, Sandra, was very knowledgeable but difficult to hear. She was very soft spoken and on busy city streets with all the street noise, I had to practically stand next to her to hear her. Her tour had 16 people as well, so...More

Hi, I'm afraid I can't answer re distance from the station as we didn't travel by train. The meeting point was at the gates of one of the colleges, I'm 99% sure it was Trinity, so I'm sure someone would point you in the... More
