Oxford Smart Walk is also know as Scholars Walk tours. We provide a very unique combination of tours that is The Oxford University, City & The Bodleian Library Tour. We started Free tours in March 2012 and since then we have given tours to thousands of visitors. Scholars Walk tours is the only free tour company in Europe which goes inside the "paid sights" which very beautiful, such as The Great Dining Hall & School of Divinity. We also pay 2 pound entry fee into a very beautiful college for every visitor that joins our tour. We have very high quality of sightseeing of paid tours and affordability of free tours.

Our guide, Mathew was both entertaining and had a deep knowledge of the history of Oxford. You are taken to places that you would never find yourself. Highly recommend.

Very good walking tour, made better by the entertaining guide. He was very informative and added colourful anecdotes during the tour. It might not be the two hours but very enjoyable.

The other reviews effectively cover the interest and content of this walk. I want to highlight that it is legitimate and well worth whatever you can afford to tip. We were on a short break from London and rather daunted by the large 'official tour'...More
