Please note that the bike tours do not visit inside colleges unless choosing to book the slightly more expensive combined walk + bike tour which is only offered on Saturdays.

Bike tour only tour options don't focus on the city centre either much, so if the preference is to see inside colleges, please book the PUBLIC combined bike + walk tour. The combined tours normally visit one or more university colleges or historic buildings but there is no guarantee that as university buildings, they may suddenly decide to close.

Currently, public tours are only offered on Saturdays and only from April to October. 

Alternatively, private tours are available to book every day during similar seasons.
