Spencer's BLITZ Tour of Oxford - 60 minutes in the City Centre

Spencer's BLITZ Tour of Oxford - 60 minutes in the City Centre

If time is of the essence, this is the tour for you! In just one hour, we'll cover the major landmarks of the city centre, including a full history of both the city and University of Oxford. The city of Oxford is commonly considered as being divided into two groups: the Town (local residents) and the Gown (students of the University). While I am currently a ‘townie’, I have been awarded a place to study at Oxford this year - and my fiancé is currently studying a DPhil. This gives me a unique perspective on both sides of the community and the city, and I will share it with you in a tour so entertaining and memorable that you will wish you lived here, or your money back! We’ll cover as much as we can in sixty minutes. Please note that entry fees are not included, though they are not necessary for a fantastic tour. If you'd like to go into colleges or customise the tour in any way, please feel free ping me a message me. Group size is flexible - £5 per extra person.

Private Oxford Bicycle Tour - available to book daily

Private Oxford Bicycle Tour - available to book daily

COVID19 NOTICE: Currently all university colleges are still closed to the public but you will see & hear lots about the colleges on the tour route. The best way to see Oxford is on a bicycle on this private bicycle tour along the River Thames Path. In fact, bikes are the locals' favourite way to get around the city as the compact Oxford is not very car-friendly. Default start time is 12.00 but you may request any start time from 12.00 until 14.30 start time. The tour lasts for 3-4 hours, including a guided tour plus bike set up time and a refreshments stop. The route covers both the city's sights and stories with a college entrance fee and a relaxing cycle along the River Thames to Iffley or Binsey Village.
