If you are looking to reserve a tour with us, please provide as much information as you can, including possible dates, the tour you’d like to book and full contact details, including telephone number.

Make a Booking

We can accept payment using PayPal, but we will need to confirm availability first.

Before making a booking, please check with us for confirmed availability of the dates and times you require. Please call us using one of the numbers listed in the panel on the right, and we will be able to advise you immediately if your first preference is available. Alternatively, use the page and we can reserve your preferred dates for up to 24 hours.

Before getting in touch, please prepare some basic notes so that we can respond quickly to your request.

  • You will need to advise us of the total number of persons in your party (up to a maximum of 25). This total will need to fall into one or other of the two size ranges for our tours: 1-19 or 20-25.
  • We will need to know which tour you’d like to book, by name. They are described here on the website, and you’ll find a full list on the Contact us page.
  • You will need to tall us the date you’d like to reserve for your booking (in the form of Day/Month/Year) and the time of day (eg: 11:30 am). However, it’s best to consider a couple of “reserve” dates, just in case we’re already booked for your first choice.

If you are considering one of our Bespoke Tours, you’ll need to discuss the details with us before we can arrange a booking. Please include a written reference within the Message panel on the Contact us page so that we can tailor your booking appropriately.

If you are considering making a booking well in advance (more than 14 days before the due date) then you may secure your reservation with a deposit of £25. We can issue you with a PayPal invoice for the deposit, and then follow this with a second invoice for the balance 14 days before the due date, when you must pay the tour cost in full.

If you are booking a tour in a foreign language (as agreed with us beforehand) there is a surcharge of £10 to pay. This will be invoiced separately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

It depends on the size of the baggage! We only have a small luggage compartment so space is limited. Please e-mail us if you want to bring baggage and we’ll tell you if we have space available.

We don’t include meals in the tour prices because Oxford is full of Delightful pubs and cafes and guests have told us that they enjoy choosing their own lunch and refreshment stops

Each tour incorporates several stops where you can walk around, get refreshments, use restrooms and go exploring. The driving time between stops is 30 – 45 minutes.

The tour is not suitable for small children as it is a minibus tour and there is a substantial amount of time spent driving. We usually suggest that it works best for children over 8 years of age.

We can pick you up from Oxford Railway Station. Please let us know what time your train is arriving/departing and we will be there waiting for you!

If you are staying in a hotel on the north side of the city – Banbury or Woodstock Road we can pick you up and drop you off as these are our routes in and out of the city. We don’t pick up from other hotels in and around the city because this would take too long at the beginning and end of each tour. If you have special circumstances or reduced mobility, please contact us and we will see what we can do to accommodate you.

It depends where you want to be picked up. Sometimes this is possible but it will mostly be if you are staying somewhere north of Oxford. Please contact us if you want to be picked up outside Oxford and we will let you know if we can help.

Cheesy answer. Any time of year is great to visit Oxford. Each season brings something individual and special to Oxford so it is beautiful year-round.

Unfortunately, we have very limited luggage space on the minibus and can’t accommodate wheelchairs.

We don’t take bookings for seats as the minibus is small and we have a maximum of 12 guests per tour. Seats are therefore allocated on a first come first served basis. If you have special circumstances please contact us in advance and we will try to accommodate you.

Currently, face coverings are not compulsory on our tours, but they are recommended.

Our minibus is cleaned and sanitised before every tour. All drivers and guides are fully vaccinated and regularly take a rapid antigen test. Hand gel is provided on the minibus.

Yes. The minibus, driver and guides are all covered by public liability insurance.

Yes. Absolutely. All payments are processed via our booking system operated by FareHarbor and Stripe and are completely secure.
