Oxford Alumni Travellers offers worldwide small-group alumni journeys accompanied by an academic trip scholar. From history to zoology, our insightful journeys cover a wide range of themes.
What makes our travel programme and tours different from others? It's you! Those who have the University of Oxford in common with one another are interesting, interested people. When you get together on one of our Oxford Travellers journeys, you meet old friends and make new ones, discover new cultures, and have adventures packed with memories to last a lifetime.
The addition of an expert trip scholars enhances this Oxford connection and for many travellers, this is the highlight of the trip. A traveller on a the recent Hellespont: Gateway of Legends tour in September 2015 said that their trip scholar 'was outstandingly good and well-nigh worth the whole cost of the tour on his own. As one would expect, his lectures were a model of how to communicate with an intelligent but lay audience.’
New trips for 2016 include:
- The Mysteries of Persia
- Chile: Astronomy Capital of the World
- Images of Papua New Guinea
If you haven't yet been on one of our trips, give it a try - we think you will enjoy connecting with Oxford alumni, families, and friends.
We had a most enjoyable group trip to Salut Castle, an ancient defensive settlement near Bisyah, at the end of last year.
We travelled down in convoy together and reached the site in good time, where we met up with Ali Mohammadi (a new member) and two friends of his (both Cambridge alumni) who happened to be travelling through Oman.

The 2015 Spring Golf Day was a most enjoyable affair held in Melbourne on Sunday, 13 December. Members of the Oxford University Society of Victoria (OUSV) were joined by our Cambridge colleagues for the event.
The weather was perfect for the 17 golfers, including five lady players, who put their game to the test around the beautiful Green Acres Golf Club. There was some excellent golf played with two scores of 38 points (stableford format), and the OUSV trophy going to Paul Ferguson (Oxford) with an impressive 43 points.
