Personable and experienced local guide Alex. Everything excellent except we think better if all guides wear face masks and require tour members to wear face masks as big groups.

2nd January 2022 The walk comprehends an overview of the colleges, together with interesting stories that project you in the Oxford's atmosphere. Our tour guide (Patrick) has been amazing: he was able to walk us through the main venues and entarteined us with his great capacity of communication and with some pleasant jokes. Again a big thank to Patrick for the great experience. Jean and Sarah
