What people are saying about University of Oxford

Despite of having only managed to have 3h sleep before heading for the tour, the experience altogether was simply fabulous! The bus ride run smooth and comfortable all the way. The tour guide was a such sweetheart, very acknowledgeable, polite and thoughtful. The setup timing for visiting each site worked quite well in the end, as well as the tips and suggestions we were given. We are lucky to have had a nice weather most of the time, with just a little bit of scattered showers in the very end of our trip at Oxford.

Lovely time. Pablo is knowledgable, amicable, funny, he will give you the best tips for food, and other places to go. We loved having Ash as well. Thank you both for your such a wonderful trip!
