Tour Details

Overview

The best way to see Oxford is on a bicycle on this small-group 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. The tour lasts for 3-4.5 hours, including a guided tour plus bike set up time and some free time for a break. 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.

Know More about this tour

If you wish to just hire a bike from 10am to 6pm or for 24 hours before or after the guided tour, that may also be possible, just remember to ask for details, when you make the booking. On the tour you will use mountain bikes and these will fit anyone aged approximately 9 years of age or older or anyone with height between 1.4m (4ft6) and 1.9m (6ft3). There are some smaller fold-out bikes available, but if you require bikes for young children, you are requested to let your local provider know in advance in order to hire young children's bikes.

Exclusions for Oxford Bicycle Tour Along Thames Path

    These tours are not really aimed at younger children (unless you are using your own bikes with child seat or tandem bikes of your own). You may note in the pricing that while we charge a lower rate for youths (aged 13+) than for adults, we charge a much higher rate for children (aged 8-12) and for infants (aged 0-7). This is because tours with younger children can easily take much longer and so usually end up meaning we also need to split the bookings to separate the tour into two groups- families with young children may also require us to hire in or to purchase extra bikes at additional cost and time to us. Thanks for your understanding. However, please note that parents with young children who bring their own children's bikes, we will not charge you any fee for children aged 0-12.
