What people are saying about Oxford Castle
Traffic in Oxford is pretty dire, disrupting the hop on hop off bus timetable. This meant some waiting and for some, changing buses. I can imagine that due to the traffic and delays, the whole tour, with getting off and on would take a long time. But we wanted to do one circuit, and not get off. The commentary was great, and the tour itself excellent, taking in all the main sights. Excellent value too. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Covid compliant too.
Visit date 28th August 2020. The tour guide Freya was very clear and knowledgable she was very professional with the covid precautions, sanitising handrails ahead of the party and ensuring the 4 small family groups stayed within thier own zones, in the more confined cells we were seperatated by discreet clear screens but still maintained 2 metres distance. The castle and prison has a varied history both historical and more recent.
I was alone with my guide Robin on a 10 am tour, but it wasnt awkward at all! Super knowledgable dude, friendly, and was willing to shoot the shit with me in between history lessons! Poor guy had a sprained ankle but was a trooper through the pain as he was energetic and put on a good show! Glad I took the tour with such a fantastic guide, thanks!
Brilliant experience from the booking experience to the customer service and tour itself. Site is very easy to use and very clear. I did have a question that was answered immediately on WhatsApp. How convenient! The tour was brilliant, the castle wouldn't have been the same without it. Our instructor Alister was superb!
Really convenient and informative way to get to know the city. Drivers were good, buses spray cleaned every hour. Social distancing observed. Very frequent service and we were lucky not very busy .
