Nice tour but tour guide walked and spoke too quickly !
Lyn_J

The tour covered interesting places and the tour guide seemed nice and was obviously a bright student. Unfortunately however he walked so quickly it was difficult to keep up and ask questions. He also spoke very quickly with a very strong Irish accent so wasn’t always easy (particularly for non-English speakers) to follow. Even a young person commented to me how fast the tour guide was. We arrived back earlier than other groups.

Thank you for your feedback Lyn. I'm sorry our guide was rushing the group, we will make sure to remind everyone that they should take their time :)

A very informative and humorous tour. Our guide was lovely and she was very knowledgeable. So glad we did this tour. I’m hard of hearing and she made sure I didn’t miss out on any of the information.

Our undergraduate guide (doing a degree in medicine at Jesus College) was excellent - knowledgeable, witty and entertaining. Good value and a great way to spend an afternoon in Oxford. Learnt a great deal about the university and how it works.
