John was amazing! Highly recommend this tour. I enjoyed it a lot and learned new things. We were a group of 10 and were able to ask questions too. John answered them all… what a knowledgeable guy!! The app worked well too. It was nice to walk around on your own and explore the remaining Oxford sights. Totally recommended!

We followed directions to the meeting place. Arrived early. Nobody showed. Directions were per the email at 44-45 High St. We were there waiting. I am supremely disappointed. Will not use this service again and would not recommend it.
