The buses run every 15 minutes so it is easy to catch buses if you have hopped off. The tour gives lots of information as it proceeds round the city. The walking tour guide, price included, was well worth joining. We were a very small group and it was the last tour of the day so we were able to be taken to extra little viewing areas as there were no time constraints on the guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend time with.

A great way to see Oxford traveling on the open top bus, the commentary on the headphones provided was very informative and intersting. You can get off at any stop to explore that area, then just get back on again to the next one,or you can go all the way around without getting off.

We visited Oxford for the day after a train ride from London. Great way to see the sites and very convenient to hop on from the Oxford train station, see the city and have lunch, then hop on to get back to the train station to get back to London Paddington station
