Lovely City - fab tour
, Jul 2021
Excellent tour - we were very lucky to be the only ones on the tour, which selfishly was fantastic! We learnt so much. We would highly recommend Heidi she is personable, knowledgeable and bubbly! Thank you

Thank you very much for your 5 star review, I am so glad you enjoyed our 'Simply Oxford Tour' - we do tend to keep tours small - often at least half the size of other groups in Oxford so these tours do represent outstanding value for money! Thank you again and with very best wishes Heidi
Great tour

Great tour, the tour guide was very informative and made the tour very interesting, due to covid most buildings of interest were closed but that didn't stop us enjoying our time spent on this tour.
Perfect Oxford experience
, Jun 2021
A very enjoyable and informative tour. Heidi is a superb guide and I would strongly recommend this tour to all visitors. The pace of the tour is comfortable and yet we seemed to cover a lot of ground and topics whilst absorbing the beautiful architecture of Oxford. Plenty of opportunities to ask questions. The experience was enhanced by the effective audio equipment. On reflection I wish I’d booked direct as I was unaware that Tripadvisor took a large commission.
Excellent tour - highly recommend

Heidi our tour guide was absolutely excellent and we had the best tour of Oxford! Would recommend the tour to anyone - learnt so much we would not have known and definitely worth the spend. Della
