Overview

COVID19 NOTICE:
Currently all university colleges are still closed to the public but you will see & hear lots about the colleges on the tour route.

The best way to see Oxford is on a bicycle on this private bicycle tour along the River Thames Path. In fact, bikes are the locals' favourite way to get around the city as the compact Oxford is not very car-friendly.

Default start time is 12.00 but you may request any start time from 12.00 until 14.30 start time. The tour lasts for 3-4 hours, including a guided tour plus bike set up time and a refreshments stop. The route covers both the city's sights and stories with a college entrance fee and a relaxing cycle along the River Thames to Iffley or Binsey Village.

Inclusions
  • Private group tour to cater around your special interests, conducted in English.
  • Helmets can be supplied (if requested) when booking
  • Local guide
  • Use of free bicycle hire during tour
  • Private tour

Exclusions
  • Gratuities
  • Entry/Admission - Radcliffe Camera
  • Entry/Admission - Bodleian Library
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking, unless booked within 15 hours of travel. In this case confirmation will be received as soon as possible, subject to availability
  • Helmets are only provided, if requested, when you book. We have limited stock of helmets and there is no obligation in Oxford to wear a helmet.
  • We do not stock bikes for young children so if you may need a tandem bike or a bike with child seat on back, we need to order this in advance. So please provide at least 24 hours notice. This is why when you pay, we have listed infants not as free but as £30 fee, because that's our cost to hire in such bikes especially.
  • We also only have limited stock of bikes for children aged 9+, so again please mention children's heights, when you book!
  • Tour requests in foreign languages. We will try to arrange a guide or translator but we will require at least 24 hours notice and this may not always be possible to arrange. In which case, the tour will be in English or we will refund you.
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult
  • Our mountain bikes in stock only fit someone from height of approx 1.4m (4feet6) to 1.9m (6 feet 3). So if you require a bike for any other height, your tour cannot be guaranteed- in which case we may need to refund you but if you give us at least 24 hours or more notice, we will try to arrange a bike at extra cost of £30 fee for anyone outside these heights. This might include a tandem bike or a parent bike with infant child back seat.
  • Please note: Young children who bring their own bikes and helmets may join the tour free of charge
  • PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME:
  • Please arrive 5 minutes early for your tour at our meeting point. If you arrive more than 5 minutes later than the scheduled tour, then you will likely forfeit and lose your booking as it interrupts the guide and other customers, if we are trying to find you after a guide has started and left the meeting point.
  • INFO FOR DRIVERS AND PARKING:
  • If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here. Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads and hard to find parking spaces....unless you park at the sign posted 'park and rides' on edge of town on any major road into the city and hop on their buses into city centre. The park and ride buses leave every 15 or every 30 minutes and take anything from 10 min to 30 min (depending on traffic) to reach city centre. So if you are going to drive, then please assume you should be aiming to park your car about one hour before your tour starts.
  • PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
  • We actually recommend instead using the much faster and reliable train services but again please aim to arrive about an hour or earlier before your tour starts as trains can be delayed and the train and coach station are about 15 minutes walk from our meeting point. There is also the coach service from London called the Oxford Tube which leaves every half hour or more but it can take much longer than its advertised 105 minute journey time. It drops you off either at High street Oxford or Gloucester Green coach station. It's quicker to ask to get off on High street near Carfax tower, then it's a 10 minutes walk to Broad street.
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Near public transportation
  • Infant seats available
  • Most travelers can participate
  • This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate
  • Our company will only carry out any legal mandatory covid workplace restrictions. If and when any of our tours use public transport or enter inside any third party venues, we will comply with whatever their policies may be and no more.
