Traffic in Oxford is pretty dire, disrupting the hop on hop off bus timetable. This meant some waiting and for some, changing buses. I can imagine that due to the traffic and delays, the whole tour, with getting off and on would take a long time. But we wanted to do one circuit, and not get off. The commentary was great, and the tour itself excellent, taking in all the main sights. Excellent value too. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Covid compliant too.

Good guide

We enjoyed the bus tour it was very informative. The guide was good and knew everything there was to know about the architecture and the colleges. I didn’t realise we had to get a ticket even though we had printed one off. I was just going to jump on the bus with my printed one. I think that might need explaining on the website better. Also I didn’t realise your 24 hour ticket didn’t start until you had been given your proper ticket so we had a lot more time to use it as we didn’t get the proper ticket until 15:30 so could use it all the next day too till 15:30 which is worth remembering. But it was good and worth the money.

A good way to have an overview of Oxford

The route was excellent and the buses came frequently. The drivers were friendly and experts at squeezing in narrow spaces. The commentary was clear and informative. Not very busy on a Friday. The only problem was that I pre-booked the tickets online but realised afterwards that we would only be able to exchange our printed voucher for valid tickets at the main train station, which was not convenient. Booking online does not give you any advantage and if you had to cancel shortly before the trip, you would lose your money.
