Oxford’s city centre is a concentration of all you want to know. Within a relatively small area there are hundreds of years of history which we will be experiencing by walking for a couple of hours. We will tour the famous sights and learn about the culture, reasons and history behind what we see. We will hear about the famous Oxford personalities, who shaped the world and learn about their world. We will also discover more hidden places, the ones tourists (and many locals) don’t know about. I will point out the locations of world famous films and the stunning hidden architecture. This is a tour for very small groups as I want you to feel comfortable and able to ask questions. If there is any particular requirement, just ask and I will do my utter best to accommodate you. Most of the times, it would be your own private tour. We will meet outside the Randolph Hotel, on Beaumont Street, opposite the Ashmolean Museum and start our adventure from there.
Hi, my name is Renata. I have lived in Oxford for over 30 years, loving it so much that I have chosen it as my adoptive home town. Over the years I have experienced all sides of this original and vibrant city. Its history and architecture, its modern aspects and deep secrets. And I loved every one of them. I shared my passion for this beautiful place with many people in the past and I would like to share it with you too. Oxford is not just Universities, it offers so much more. Come and discover it with me! When I am not soaking in the local culture, I travel far and wide. I have noticed that the extensive travel helps me learn about different cultures and ways of life but also makes me appreciate what we have here. I love meeting different people, and languages are my utmost passion. I can offer the tour in English, French or Italian
We will be walking through the colleges and historical buildings, pointing out museums and visit the castle, libraries and local markets.
My tours are suitable for families and children under 10 come for free. We will be passing many shops during our walk where you can buy drinks and snacks if needed.
