The best way to see Oxford!
Aug 2021 • Couples
Great fun and a fab way to see the city. We were only in town for one day and covered so much more ground on the bike than we ever would have done by foot. They bring you to all the main sights and we learnt loads, especially about the different colleges and the history of the university. It also took us slightly further afield to see other areas outside of central Oxford which was great. Our guide Fred was fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. Great value for money. Highly recommend this tour.

Fabulous Time!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Well let me start by saying the bike tour had a few "glitches" but it truly was probably the best time we had on our awesome two week holiday and that is because of our fabulous tour guide Jacob W! I had a flat tire 5 minutes in and fortunately for us my husband and I were the only ones that day on the tour so we had to walk our bikes back and get another one. No big deal and Jacob was so apologetic about it. Then off we went again! Jacob was a wealth of knowledge. He'd be so proud of us that we shared many of his anecdotes to other people throughout the following two weeks of our holiday. The bike ride was easy and we were able to cover a lot of ground. I could go on and on about how fun and entertaining Jacob was but you'll just have to request him and find out for yourself. Totally would recommend this tour. Cheers from 100 Mile House, B.C. :)

Best way to see Oxford
Why bother with a bus sightseeing tour when you can explore this interesting, beautiful city by bike? We loved this cycle tour as it enabled us to chat with a local guide and ask random questions as things sprung to mind. Our guide was superb and his knowledge vast, providing us with an enthusiasm for the traditions and rituals which form part of college life. Fun day out and a memorable way to learn more about one of England’s most famous City’s. Incidentally, we used Oxfords park and ride facility which made access to Oxford easy and cost effective.

review of oxford bike tour
Mar 2018 • Family
we could not use the bike because we were unable to download the mobile app to operate the bikes..however, the guide Marcus more than made up for this by bringing us on a walking tour instead. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the walking tour!

Great way to see a great city
Aug 2017 • Couples
We did the 2 hour bike tour. It was a great way to get around and see more of the city than we would have had we walked. The streets were bike friendly, and we got a chance to get out of the city centre and see some of greater Oxford.

The tour was interesting and took us to many of the historical sites of Oxford including entry into New College.
