What people are saying about Oxford

We did an Oxford University tour with Gabrielle and it was awesome! He was super friendly and made the tour interesting for our teens. We saw lots of marvellous sites and even managed to get into the Divinity School with Gabrielle. This was a highlight. Gabrielle explained about how the university system worked, how to get etc...plus differences between the colleges. He explained the university's history and showed us some famous sites. He shared some funny stories about the various colleges too. Very entertaining for everyone.
