Heidi guiding

“A must for any visitor to Oxford”

Fun, friendly and informative, we would definitely recommend this tour.
We had a great tour with Heidi, who was very informative and knowledgeable about Oxford and make our walk both fun and interesting. Heidi made us feel as if we were walking with a knowledgeable friend, and it was a fun few hours.
We would definitely do this again. Feefo. September 2020.
