A really great way to experience the historic buildings in this beautiful city. Our driver had a lovely sense of humour which added to our enjoyment. You can get on and off when you choose, giving you so much freedom to explore further. Alsi the ticket is timed over a 24 hour period meaning you can use again the next day within the time period. Definitely recommend.

This was great value for money. The open top bus tour was fun and the guide, Dave, was friendly and informative. We also went on the walking tour which is in the cost and that was great! I didn't get the guide's name, but he was fantastic- charming and interesting.

Only problem was registering at the train station for paper tickets. What is the point of online booking, a QR code and an app if we still have to trudge half way across Oxford to get a paper ticket with a QR code on it? Doesn’t make sense to me.
