I saw tickets for a three hour bike tour around Oxford and thought it sounded like a great idea. So off we went my husband and I and our 12 year old son. We met Steve, our guide, who was just like a very knowledgeable friend. We had a super day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a lot of fun.
I shall definitely be booking with this wonderful company again to try another tour- there are many!
Highly recommend- go for it- you won't be disappointed.

I had a brillaint time on this tour! I didn't know much about Oxford but decided to go to the city on a whim as I'd heard good things about the place. I got in touch with Bainton Bikes who I'd seen advertised for cycle tours; I'm not much of a cyclist but the weather was good and I thought 'what the hell, why not?'

The person I spoke to over the phone was friendly and informative and gave me clear instructions about where to go to meet up for the tour. I was also able to hire a bike from them aswell, for a surprisingly cheap price considering it was a decent bike. The tour guide himself was extremely knowledgable and funny. What's more he was happy to move the tour at a pace that suited everybody, so it didn't feel like we were being rushed and didn't feel like we were lagging or missing anything. The tour itself took us to loads of different places in Oxford and we were given decent snippits of the history and other interesting information of the sights we saw. It was very informative and memorable!

I will definately return to Oxford again and will DEFINATELY bring friends with me on another tour with Bainton Bikes. I can fully recommend it as part of the Oxford Experience!
