My parents went for this trip and they loved it! The bus starts from right outside the Oxford station which is really convenient

Good way to get an overview of the city. The tour is somewhat driver dependent. I bought a multi-day pass and one day had a driver who took the tour part seriously and slowed down so that you could actually catch the sites. On another day, the bus driver was simply driving and didn't greet guests- guess he was having a bad day.

Well worth it, good value for the money the ticket will last all day, you can travel around oxford get off have a beer or two and hop back on and carry on with the tour.

I didn't have a car there and it helped to get a feel for the city. The only hitch was getting to the blue bus. It was hard to figure out where to get it. That bus was a little disappointing because it didn't have as many historic places and information.

Oxford is not an easy city for driving around, so we found it helpful to just park at the Park and Ride (Redbridge) outside of town and take the bus into Oxford. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is the limited hours. We were rushed for time for fear of missing the last bus to the car park.

Plenty of history but the main tour is the most worthwhile.

Like most of the HOHO tour, the one i joined in Oxford was great in generally .The only thing was i had to short the time to explore more on Oxford especially the university. i boarded the bus at 11.10a.m and had to rush to take the train at 3pm back to London.

In short, the bus driver was courteous and helpful. I would say it's value for money.
