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.

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

Fun way with family to see Oxford. Would recommend. Have a 8yr old and a 12yr old who loved it and despite being on roads felt safe. No helmet provided, so if taking kids may want to take your own. We had ours in the car. Loved the bikes, adjustable for all heights. Nice friendly and funny tour guide. I don't think I'll do a walking tour again.
