Imported from England to Oxford in 1994, the Double Decker buses are icons in the City of Oxford. Visit Oxford offers seasonal bus tours with local historian Jack Mayfield. Jack takes riders on a trip through history, visiting points of interest on the University of Mississippi campus and around the City, including William Faulkner historic sites.
