We have been providing tours in Oxford with Oxford University students for last 7 years and have built up an international reputation for providing the best tours of the city, in the most authentic way possible.
Starting with a collection from Gloucester Green Tube Station the tour will head from London to Oxford, showing you the most beautiful parts the University has to over, all provided by an Oxford University student.
The morning starts with a comprehensive tour of Oxford University and the city of Oxford. The sites visited are steeped in history, iconic and expertly chosen, from the Bodleian Library (home to such books as the first complete folio of Shakespeare’s work, along with the Magna Carta and rare illustrations done by Tolkien), to one of the most beautiful colleges at Oxford University. Standing in the same locations as Lewis Carol and C S Lewis would have stood, presents a great opportunity to hear not only about the famous academics who taught at Oxford, but also the influential writers who have defined entire genres.
While moving between these locations your guide will be able to describe their own experiences of tutor sessions, degree ceremonies – of course along with those eccentric traditions which are just as important!

Go Inside One of the Oldest Colleges At Oxford University
