Ratings and Reviews

Still one of my favourite apps


This is such a useful app, I love it. The extra images are a good addition but the panoramas are just brilliant, they really give a sense of what the places are like. Highly recommended.

Dull dull dull


A waste of money and very overpriced. Buy a guide book instead. Visually dull, no video footage and an awful lot of words! The so called "tours" aren't tours at all just a suggestion of places to go. This has been produced by people with knowledge of the city but little imagination or understanding of how to make an interesting lively app. A missed opportunity. However, I expect they are congratulating themselves over a nice glass of sherry.

Excellent App especially for day trippers to Oxford


Was just in Oxford for the day and this app was excellent. Gave us plenty of ideas esp the tours. Highly recommended!
