I felt we were conned. Although our guide was good, I have no complaints about that but Footprint tours charged us £15 per person for a guided tour in Spanish, the entry to the Harry Potter film site was £1 to the general public and...More

Stumbled upon this walking tour today. Trevor was extremely knowledgeable and told the stories and history of Oxford with great prowess and enthusiasm. Easily the best tour guide I’ve ever had. Thanks!

Informative tour and Lizzie gave us a good insight into both Oxford history and life as a student. Small enough group so no snippets of information missed.

Trevor was amazing. We went the full family with twin 3 year olds. And Trevor was so so patient in waiting everytime we reached with them slowly before starting. Still he gave all the information and the tour was really memorable. Kudos to footprint tours.

Jo gave our group a really lively, interesting and thoroughly engaging tour of Oxford Uni. She injected her own life experience in Oxford as we toured the Uni. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable and we would recommend it to everyone 😄.
