Learnt a lot about the colleges, their history and how they operate. I felt however that a little more variation plus slightly more about the city as well as the university would have added something to the tour.

Simon was a fantastic tour guide and he knows do much about the colleges and the history of Oxford. Having given us a superb 90 minute tour he then made some suggestions for the afternoon. This was especially brilliant as my mum is in a wheelchair and he had thought through things that we could do to really enjoy our time in Oxford. I would highly rate this trip and in particular Simon.
