What You'll Do
  • Visit several of Oxford's colleges and some of its most historic buildings
  • Enjoy the view while cycling down the Thames River cycle path to a historic village
  • See celebrated sights such as the Christ Church meadows and the Oxford castle
Overview
Discover the beautiful city of Oxford in the best way possible: on a bicycle. Choose from 1 of the 2 options available, opting for either a 1-hour walking tour or a 3-hour cycle tour of Oxford, both followed by a cycle trip along the Thames River.
What to Expect
The best way to see Oxford and its beautiful surroundings is on a bicycle. In fact, many locals use bikes to get around the city because Oxford is not the most car-friendly place. The bicycle tour route can vary according to any special requests but generally, there are two options offered:

a) Enjoy a 1-hour "I Love Oxford" walking tour, followed by a 2 to 3 hour cycle trip along the Thames River path to a beautiful village nearby.

b) Enjoy a 3 to 4 hour cycle tour of Oxford, followed by cycle trip along the Thames River path to a beautiful village nearby.

The option also exists to schedule a pub stop for refreshments and, regardless of the route, you can gain insight into how a boat trip along this route in 1862 inspired Lewis Carroll's story-telling of 'Alice in Wonderland'.
What's Included
  • Guided tour plus bicycle
What's Not Included
  • College entrance fees (many colleges have free entrance at certain opening times)
Meeting Point

Meeting point for bike tours is usually outside Ginos Italian restaurant, next to Oxford coach station and Gloucester Green, OX1 2BU. However, on rare occasions, the tour operator may ask you to meet them at their normal walking tour departure point - namely outside Oxford visitor info center, 15 Broad street, OX1 3AS. Therefore please respond to their email confirmation which will be sent to you after they accept your booking request. (Open in Google Maps)

Know Before You Go
If you are not familiar with riding a bicycle e.g. you have not ridden a bike in a few years, please make this fact known to the tour operator when you book.

If you have infants who require a bicycle with a small back seat for an infant or if you require a bicycle which can be ridden by and adult and child, these bikes are not stocked! They can however be hired if you book this tour with enough advance notice. There is an extra charge for infants. Alternatively, if you bring your own bicycle with child seat etc., then that's fine and there would be no extra fee for infants.

Please note this tour is not aimed at infants.
