Rooftop Magnificence - Excellent value… about an hour for the 20 stops. I took the 48hr option and went fully round twice, the second day with a live ‘local’ guide Greg who was great 👍 Views are fabulous, but with the fine architecture of the city you could hardly go wrong!

Walking Tour - The bus tour was good but the walking tour guide Chris lochlan was excellent. He was really knowledgeable and was even late for his Sunday dinner to show us mire things.

Bus Tour and 60 minute walking tour (Chris Cochran). - Hop-on hop-off bus tour had an excellent commentary describing notable buildings that we passed in the bus. Headphones were provided. We had a 60 minute walking tour starting at the High Street Tourist Office led by Chris Cochran. Chris has an amazing memory for the exact dates of events and people. It was interesting and educational!

Great day out in Oxford - My first visit to Oxford so I took the tour. The driver was friendly and helpful, suggesting which ticket would be best for me. My ticket included climbing the Carfax Tower and a walking tour. The headphone were easy to work and hear and the commentary gave just the right amount of information for me to take in. The tour guide was Chris. He is a walking encyclopaedia of information! We walked to places and he explained things I would not have found just by walking around by myself even with a guide book. It's well worth doing the walking tour even if you don't do the bus tour.

Bus tour and free walking tour - We took the Hop-on Hop-off bus tour around Oxford which was informative and interesting, and a good way to get a sense of the city. Also included in the bus ticket was a 45 minute free walking tour. We had Policeman Pete as our tour guide - it was a great walking tour, Pete had a wealth of information about the city and its buildings, and was welcoming and entertaining. We learnt a lot about the University and its various buildings and colleges. Highly recommended.

Around the Inner City sights.....From the Station. - Most cities have these. A great way to get your bearings and an idea of what you might want to get off and see. Commentary of sites and places via the supplied multilingual headphone box imparts more information than most visitors would ever know.
