Fred was an excellent guide through Oxford. We loved the walking and biking combo. I was a bit nervous about biking though Oxford, but it was easier than I thought it would be. Thoroughly enjoyed and would do again!

Hannah was an exceptional tour guide! Her in depth knowledge about a city she clearly adores was evident and it made the tour so enjoyable. We learnt so much about the cities history in such a short amount of time. Thank you Hannah for a fantastic tour! We will definitely recommend you to others who visit.

Myself and my partner took a cycle tour around Oxford this weekend with Mark. We both thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour tour. As we were the only 2 people to have signed up for that afternoon's cycle tour, Mark really took the time to chat to us, find out about us and then give us information that he thought we would enjoy. The bikes that the company uses were really comfortable and well maintained. It was great to be able to cover distance and sights that just might not have been possible on a walking tour. It also felt very safe as it is easy to remain socially distanced on the bike. Face masks were compulsory on this tour and Mark wore one the whole time too, but it didn't hinder the experience at all, in fact we appreciated the additional safety precautions that were taken, even in an outside tour. I have taken a couple of cycle tours in other cities, but this one was easily the most interesting and informative one I have done. My partner has never done a tour like this before and so now other companies have a tough act to follow if we do something similar anywhere else! Great value and a brilliant use of our limited time in Oxford. Thank you Mark for a lovely afternoon.
