The Oxford Sightseeing Walking Tour
A 30 minute “Stepping Through Oxford” Walking Tour is included in the price of the Open Top tour ticket (subject to availability). It can also be bought as a standalone tour at £6.00 for adults and £3.50 for children. Tours leave Stop 8 every 30 mins between 11:30 and 14:00 hrs. Due to popularity, we unfortunately cannot guarantee availability on any specific tour.
Walking tours were originally available only until the end of August, however, we have listened to our customers and have extended this offer into the autumn. Buy your ticket and enjoy a beautiful and informative walk around Oxford soon!
If you choose not to take the walk, the bus will continue on our normal route and a recorded commentary will be available in the Guide’s absence.
Can wheelchair users and buggies travel on your buses?
We endeavour to make our vehicles inclusive to all of our customers and this includes making them as accessible as we can for disabled people and those with buggies. We are therefore working hard to ensure our entire fleet of buses meets the needs of those of our passengers who use wheelchairs or are in buggies. All of our vehicles are able to accommodate wheelchairs, approved mobility scooters, prams and buggies. Whilst we welcome these on board for travel, it is at the discretion of the driver as to whether or not there is enough space available. If you are unsure of the suitability of your wheelchair, mobility scooter or buggy, contact us and we can arrange for a test to take place at our garage.
Wheelchairs, mobility scooters, prams and buggies must not block the gangway of our buses or coaches at any time and the dimensions of any mobility scooter must be in line with the requirements according to the bus’s safety limits. It is up to the driver to decide if there is sufficient space and his/her decision is final: Your driver has the right to, therefore, refuse access if he or she feels that there is insufficient space or that there is a risk that, by letting on board such vehicles, this may be to the detriment of the other passengers’ safety.
We would kindly ask all of our customers, where necessary, to keep the wheelchair dedicated space free and, if you board with a buggy or pram and to the extent that it is possible for you to do so, to fold and store them in the luggage space. We wish to ensure our services are as inclusive as possible and we do therefore appreciate your assistance in permitting those with wheelchairs, mobility scooters, prams and buggies to use our buses. Where it is reasonable to do so in the circumstances, the driver will require non-wheelchair users to vacate the spaces and require, for example, that such non-wheelchair users move to a different part of the bus or even refuse to drive on until space is made available for those persons in wheelchairs.
It goes without saying that we will ensure that our drivers and our vehicles comply with the laws applicable to those who are disabled or using buggies. This includes ensuring our vehicles are equipped with appropriate bus lowering systems or the appropriate folding or retractable steps and these must not be operated by anyone other than the driver or conductor whenever they consider that a disabled person will need the system to get on or off our buses. Wheelchair users who wish to alight at the next stop can use the bell push near the wheelchair space which lets the driver know that the ramp must be lowered at the next stop.
Sometimes we offer free places, or discount travel, to disabled passengers and their carers. These are judged on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us if you wish to discuss.
