Rickshaw City Tour
The pedal-powered sightseeing tour of Oxford
Discover Oxford with a tour through its beautiful streets (many of which are closed to motorised traffic) led by a fit, fun and knowledgeable guide. The OxonCarts tour of Oxford provides a uniquely memorable vantage point from which to see the city.
The Oxon Carts Oxford tour is featured in the latest edition of the Lonely Planet England travel guide:
"Oxon Carts runs a fleet of five pedicabs around Oxford's narrow lanes where the buses simply can't go. Passengers receive a copy of a 1904 map of the city and personal guide to its buildings and history."
A full hour-long tour costs £25- Just £12.50 per person!
Our tour specialises in the history of Oxford University and its relationship with the rest of the city. But we’re not restricted to a pre-set route – you can choose where you want to go, and what you’d like to see – ours are the only fully-flexible Oxford tours!
You can even start and finish your tour in different places, perhaps ending with an afternoon of punting.
Vouchers are available: a perfect present! At the start of your tour, you’ll be greeted by your friendly guide, and given a 1904 map of Oxford (don’t worry, it hasn’t changed much!). Your guide will ask if you have some particular sights in mind for your tour, however we do have a standard itinerary, just in case! You can also let us know in advance if you’d like your tour to take in specific parts of Oxford.
If you have used us in the past, we'd really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to write us a quick review.
1 rickshaw can hold 2 passengers. The price is £25/rickshaw.
If your party was 3 passengers (2 rickshaws) the total would be £50.
If we feel that a tour cannot go ahead due to the weather (and you have not already cancelled) then we will provide a full refund for your booking. This will only occur in extreme circumstances however.
Please see our T&Cs page for more information though.
