1. Discover Oxford: City & Countryside Cycling Tour
The best way to see Oxford and its beautiful surroundings is on a bicycle. In fact, many locals use bikes to get around the city because Oxford is not the most car-friendly place. The bicycle tour route can vary according to any special requests but generally, the itinerary is as follows. Depart from Oxford via bike, and follow a relaxing scenic route along the Thames River path to visit a picturesque village with thatched cottages, a medieval church, and scenic views. You then continue on a 1-hour walking tour that will introduce you to the sights of Oxford city sights, including visits inside the university colleges. It is also possible to schedule a pub stop for refreshments and, regardless of the route, you can gain insight into how a boat trip along this route in 1862 inspired Lewis Carroll's story-telling of 'Alice in Wonderland'.
