Walking Tours

Since Explore Oxford Tours was founded by Isobel Lewis in 2005, guided tours on foot, through the streets and colleges of Oxford, have been at the heart of what we do.

After more than ten years in the business, and having shown tens of thousands of visitors around the City of Dreaming Spires, Explore Oxford Tours has become one of the best-respected companies offering personal tours of the ancient city. Those walks, in the company of one of our talented and knowledgeable Blue or Green Badge guides, accredited by The Institute of Tourist Guiding, continue to introduce many hundreds more visitors to the history and heritage of Oxford every year. 

In 2016 Explore Oxford Tours expanded with the launch of a sister organisation; Cotswold Exploring, offering personal tours of the countryside around Oxford using a luxury 12-seater minibus. In 2017, that growth continued with the introduction of new walking and coach tours that extended the scope and geographical coverage offered by both companies.

Explore Oxford Tours now extends the same level of service and quality for visitors looking to explore Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and also Birmingham – the home of the Industrial Revolution. Please follow these links to find out more:
