Student-led private tour. 25% of proceeds donated to two Oxfordshire-based charities, supporting vulnerable individuals facing homelessness and addiction in the city. The city of Oxford is commonly considered as being divided into two groups: the Town (local residents) and the Gown (students of the University). As both a townie and a gownie, I have a unique perspective on this incredible city and I can't wait to share it with you. We’ll cover as much as we can in two hours. Please note that entry fees are not included in the fee, though they are not necessary for a fantastic tour. For more options, dates/times & greater flexibility, or if you have any specific requirements, please message me through my website - Oxfordaudiotour [dot] com. Group size flexible. £30/ extra person.
