Really enjoyed this cycle tour. We are a family of 5 and the tour guide (Fred) made the tour very interesting and child friendly. A good balance of biking and telling us interesting stories about Oxford. Would highly recommend. We did the tour on a Sunday and the city was very quiet which was an added bonus. A super opportunity to see learn about the city whilst getting some exercise.

John was amazing! Highly recommend this tour. I enjoyed it a lot and learned new things. We were a group of 10 and were able to ask questions too. John answered them all… what a knowledgeable guy!! The app worked well too. It was nice to walk around on your own and explore the remaining Oxford sights. Totally recommended!

We had a good tour of the city. The guide (Fred - a recent graduate in Law) was excellent. His knowledge of Oxford and the University were brilliant. He had lots of funny and informative stories and anecdotes. The bikes were good and easily adjustable for participants. We would certainly recommend this activity
