I think it's really difficult to entertain and inform a big audience for 2 hours, yet Tom did so with ease. Even when Tom was interrupted by a local, he handled that with the grace of Samson slaying an entire army with just a bone. I'm glad I chose this tour, as is was easily the value of any of... More

I live in Oxford and usually do my own 'your' with visitors but this time decided to take my friends on this one. Tom is clearly very passionate about his city and very knowledgeable. He told us many stories I didn't know and filled in a lot of detail of stories that I had heard of before. A very enjoyable... More

Choosing this tour was the best decision my friend and I did to spend the day in Oxford last weekend! (I'm a bit late writing this review). It was a great tour. Tom was very friendly, funny and a great tour guide, it didn't seem like two hours at all! After the tour we met other tour guides and went... More

Tom, was excellent. He handled a large group very well, maintaining a great rapport and engagement across many nationalities. It was a full 2 hours at a brisk pace, the weather was perfect. The mix of facts, historical scandal and colour really made it a very enjoyable event. 5 stars to Tom. Yes recommended. Clarke's from Cheshire.

Did this tour on a Saturday morning and really enjoyed it, even though I have lived in Oxford for years. I learned new and interesting details about Oxford that make this city unique. Loved the personal slant from the tour guide in some of the stories - much better than a guidebook or pre-recorded audio. One thing to note: I... More

We toured Oxford on a cold gray day. Starting at 2, we made a big circuit around but never in any of the colleges (no visits were promised). In retrospect, we wish we bailed half way through he tour at Christ Church and went inside to tour the college. By the end of the tour, we were too cold to... More

We toured today with Tom and he was excellent . Just the right mix of history,humour and facts. Great personality and only negative was group was too big so would have been better split between 2 guides. Very informative and a sunny day helped ! Highly recommended and well worth a good tip.
