“Our rickshaw ride was a highlight of our wedding day. Stylish, unique, simply Oxfordy. The lads riding the bikes were great - they took us where we wanted, made sure the photographer could always get the best shots, stopped for scenic pics. The best way to get through Oxford's busy streets.”
“Amazing job on the day as the heavens opened just as we left. Very nice, polite, driver who waited around as we had photos taken. Had a pre wedding ride with my 4 year old and again, the driver was excellent. would highly recommend”
“We REALLY enjoyed our Oxoncarts experience! We had so many fantastic photos from and it was so much fun. It really was so special and we were so pleased that 2 carts were provided to accommodate our photographer too. I can't think of a better way to get really unique wedding photographs.”
“Excellent to have cycle rickshaws, rather than the usual posh car or smelly "vintage" bus. The rickshaws were able to take the guests a pacturesque route, which would not have been possible had they gone by car, due to Oxford's roads (which have been around since before cars, of course)!”
“They were fantastic, just a very unique way of leaving your venue. We loved the attention around Oxford that was attracted by being able to go around the whole of Oxford which is pedestrianised. We saw Oxford from some very different angles, and got to spend a quality half an hour on our own!”
“Oxon carts provided a great unique way to end our wedding and were very helpful - even suggesting a better place to pick us up which would make for a better photo.”
“I left the mode of transport for my bridesmaids a surprise and they were so delighted when Oxon Carts turned up to take them to town. The carts and pedlars looked splendid and it was a great way of making the journey. Highly recommended!”
We were extremely pleased with the service provided by OxonCarts and my daughter Sarah and her husband Sam were also delighted with the occasion, the ride and the reactions of the passers-by!

"Thanks ever so much for the carts for our wedding on Saturday. The lads were fantastic - rode us where we wanted to go, and did a great job in heavy traffic.
The journey was one of the highlights of the day."
- Katrina Navickas (19 July 2012)
"We have used Oxon Carts for the past 5 years at Our Oxford University Alumni Weekend. We get a lot of positive feedback on the rickshaws from our alumni – they really make the event that little bit more special. The rickshaw drivers are always courteous, polite and are very hard working. They are the highlight of the event!!"
- Elizabeth Anderson-Whymark (Alumni Weekend organiser)
"All the girls really enjoyed their ride and Isabelle said that it made her birthday party feel extra special."
- Hilary Foakes, 14 March 2011
“We hired Oxon Carts for our wedding in March. Everything worked perfectly and our ride from St John's to Queen's was one of the highlights of a perfect day. We appreciated the personal service and thought that ours was a much more stylish way to get from service to reception than the usual big car. Thanks!”
- Matthew and Eleanor
“What a fun, effortless (for the passengers anyway!), and quirky way to enjoy a tour of the lovely streets of Oxford. The ‘drivers’ were interesting and informative, as well as charming, and nothing was too much trouble. We all had a great time and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the city.”
- Alice B
“What a wonderful time we had on the rickshaw tours. The three riders were great and gave us very entertaining and informative commentaries as we were ferried around the back streets of Oxford. I can't think of any other way that we would have had such a good time and found out so much about your lovely city. Thank you so much and please pass our thanks on to our three cabbies!”
