Excellent Private Tour

Michiel was our guide for our private walking tour in Oxford and he was great! We only had 90 minutes to spend on our tour before another appointment and Michiel was very accommodating. He asked us what sorts of things we wanted to see so he didn’t waste any time for us. He was very knowledgeable and clearly loves the city. If we ever come back we’ll be asking for Michiel to give us a Tolkien/Lewis tour for sure!

Really enjoyed my walking tour with Martin who was informative, entertaining and obviously very enthusiastic about Oxford. He adapted the tour to my walking pace and included information from hundreds of years ago right through to Morse, Lewis, Endeavour and Harry Potter! thank goodness for grandchildren. Seeing the buildings, quadrangles, colleges and chapels was wonderful, not to mention the stained glass windows.
