Private Group Walking Tours
Group walking tour of Oxford’s Dreaming Spires, tailored to suit and provided by one of our experienced guides.
With a private tour, you ensure that there are no set paths, no compromises and no standing very close to people you don’t know! The colleges visited and the university buildings talked about, are selected just for you.
- Both English and foreign language speaking guides available.
- There is a maximum of 6 people or 2 households per tour guide.
- All fees quoted include VAT at the prevailing rate but do not include admission to Colleges or other places of interest. These should be paid on the day direct to the College or venue.
Your tour can start at any central location, to suit your needs. If your party is arriving by coach, however, we would suggest the following points: Oxford Railway Station forecourt or outside the Playhouse Theatre, Beaumont Street, Oxford.
