Tour took about an hour. Takes you around all the key spots and gives short commentary which then allows you to go back and see the spots you want in lots more detail.
It was plain and simply super and we thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot about Oxford's colleges history.
Best thing to do. Gave us a better knowledge of the history and architecture and set us up for what we wNted to explore in detail. However, don't get your tickets from yjis site. They were more expensive than buying them on the bus and they have not responded to an email we sent 6 days ago
The tour was very interesting, the talk was informative, and covered everything that we wanted to learn and more. hopping on and off was very easy.
very informative - guides obviously had tremendous local knowledge
Worth doing. Gets all the interesting stops organised as was close to our accomodation. Only complaint the stop were a bit hard to find.
We have been on several of these city tours in cities across the world and this one is by far the best. There are 2 colours of bus, try to catch the green one, it will have a live guide rather than the recorded commentary which is on the red bus. (this is also very good)
We had a wonderful time went on twice with two different guides and learnt so much more,well worth the money.
Despite the chilly day, we loved Oxford! What an amazing town.
It was good although many of the jacks for the headphones didn't work so I had to change seats multiple times while the bus was moving, with my 5 year old, to find seats that allowed two people to listen at once.
Helpful bus drivers made this bus tour very enjoyable - nice relaxing way to see the city of Oxford.
Great to be able to go around three times. Two of the tours with a different live guide and one with the pre-recorded commentary. Each trip provided different snippets of information and we'll worth it.
Great way of seeing the city and getting your bearings. Very useful to be able to come back to places you want to spend more time seeing. Commentary interesting and helpful.
Great way to get around and to give you your bearings - just a shame about the weather!
The bus service was fine...once I was allowed to use it. The first bus driver I encountered told me I had to go to the train station where the office was and see if they would honor my papers. The second driver I encountered was clearly reluctant to accept the documents. I will thank him for finally allowing me onto the bus. Viator needs to train all the drivers regarding internet purchases and the documents generated by such sales.
Much information about many sites. Some guides more interesting than others. We had rain so didn't get off much.
My only complaint is there was no warning as to when the next stop was approaching. For one who using a hearing aid, the little earphones are useless and cannot hear the commentary
This is a great way to see the city although the bus doesn't stop at all stops unless requested, unlike in other cities like Dublin, where the commentary is live, not recorded, and the driver alerts passengers to what to see at each stop.
