A fun filled gentle paced 2 hour walking tour, that will show you all round the important places of historic interest, with a knowledgeable and friendly guide who has lived in Oxford all of his life, and who has SO many fascinating stories to tell you about the history of the city, its peculiar traditions, and of course the University. A genuinely free tour operating for voluntary tips only.

Alan was an animated encyclopedia of Oxford; his tour truly went above and beyond in presenting the amazing city. In a city that has so much history, the two hours were packed with interesting facts that kept us captivated. So much of the city is...More

This is a walking tour of Oxford, and is of the highest quality. The idea is that it's free but one donates at least a suggested amount at the end of the tour. We (an educational summer program) booked Alan in advance to take a...More
