Fundraising Tours for Local Charities
We are a social enterprise and we believe in giving back to Oxford's local community.
For this reason, we collaborate with different Oxford-based organizations whose work we admire and want to support. Each month, one of our walking tours will be offered as a fundraising event - making it a donation-based tour.
