First thing to do in Oxford to get your bearings.

We live in Bath. The first thing we tell all our visitors to do is get the bus tour. Therefore it seemed silly not to take our own advice. Buses go every 15 minutes, so we were... read more

We always opt for the City Tour wherever we go as its a quick easy way to see the whole city in a short time. However, unless you are interested in gothic architecture and a history of Oxford colleges this is a pretty boring tour. Oxford has nothing else going for it. I also thought it was quite expensive for... More

What a complete waste of money £15 to tour the bus station, Railway station, see car parks listen to an out of date mono tone narrative and see the ugly side of Oxford. We got on at number 14 stop and got off at number 8. We did a city tour in San Francisco where they gave you blankets perhaps... More

A brilliant way to see the sights of Oxford. The commentary was very informative and the gaps in the commentary were filled with classical music. The great benefit was the opportunity to just hop off when you wanted to spend more time in that area. Would highly recommend this tour.

I had one day in Oxford so I took the hop on hop off bus. It was a good tour to get an overview of Oxford before deciding what to see in more depth. As you can hop on and off all day I thought it was good value for money, especially as I can't walk too far or stand... More

I opted to purchase the 48 hour option, as online the 24 Hr is £14, whilst the 48 Hr one is £16. What I did not realise was there was only one route around Oxford. Some City tours have more than one route, so I was a little disappointed, but it was my fault for not checking first! The Oxford... More

I'm really pleased you enjoyed our tour, and that you took advantage of our optional walking tour. This was introduced this winter and has proved very popular so we are going to keep it going for the summer. We will also be reintroducing our 2nd route - Meadows & Bridges in April, so perhaps you might be able to revisit... More

You get to hear the history of the city and you do get to see a far amount of the Oxford city. However, with many of these franchises, I think they are expensive for what they offer. However, if cost is not a concern and you don't mind listening on the headset then this is good.

The guy selling tickets in the booth at the bus station in Oxford was so helpful and enthusiastic and the route and commentary were very informative

We live in Bath. The first thing we tell all our visitors to do is get the bus tour. Therefore it seemed silly not to take our own advice. Buses go every 15 minutes, so we were not waiting too long until we were on the bus. £15 each is a little steep, but if you consider a walking guided... More

Perfect way to enjoy a visit to Oxford. We took the full trip around the city, then decided which attractions we wanted to visit, and hopped off the bus on our second time round. So much to see, and the city was exciting. Unfortunately it had been raining and some of the seats were wet, we joined the Green bus... More

Thank you for your review, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your visit. I'm sorry you found some of the sockets not working. You do not say if you spoke to the driver, but, they are normally able to re-boot the commentary system if aware of any problem, which will solve the majority of issues. More

We took the tour with out getting off the first time and there was an excellent live commentary which was just as well as the pre-recorded version had some dodgy sockets which didn't work very well. It was a great way to orientate ourselves and see where everything was. We got back on the bus later and also did the... More
