Enjoyable tour, great tour guide.

Our tour of Oxford University with Daniel was thoroughly enjoyable. During the 2 hour tour we went into New College & heard lots of interesting facts about the University. Daniel also gave us an insight into being an Oxford student, which was fascinating. We visited Weston Library and Bodleian Library but sadly didn't get to go inside them as filming was taking place. We should've also visited Divinity School but this was closed due to graduation ceremonies. This wasn't a problem though as there was still much to see and do. Daniel made the tour great fun for all of the family, as well as providing lots of detailed information. I would recommend the tour & would use Viator for future tours.

Really great tour and Lizzie did a very good job! We had one day out from London to see Oxford and we saw so much more than we would have if we just wandered around the city. Please note that we found it very much worth the money to pay for this tour which is limited to 14 rather than get a "free tour" that was 100-150 people. We could interact with the guide, ask questions and had a great experience.

Our tour guide Mary did a great job and we all had a wonderful two hours! If we were passed some flyers to sum up the places we visited, that could be even better, especially for tourists who are non-English native speakers.

Wonderful way to spend an afternoon at Oxford! Megan was a great guide and knew so much about the university’s history. She ensured that we were moving at a good pace but also stayed in the shade during such a hot day.

Great tour/ don’t go during graduation!

The guide was excellent! She was so friendly and articulate! The one thing that was disappointing was that graduation was happening so we could not go into a few buildings! I wish this was disclosed before because I have done this tour previously and brought my husband and daughter this time and would have rescheduled.
