The Cotswolds has inspired not just chocolate box tins & tourist photo books but also some of England's most famous artists, like the pre Rapahelites who lived here in the 1800s. See traditional architecture, picturesque landscape & wander around beautiful villages. You have the choice of joining us for either an active but not too active cycle trip through the Cotswolds or you can sit back & enjoy the sights from our car or minibus hire. Please note that tours are priced here as tour options for either A) DRIVING TOURS from 10am to 5pm or later or as B) CYCLING TOURS from 10am to 4pm. Unlike the driving tours, the cycle tours don't pick up from Oxford city but instructions will be sent how to get to meet us, using public transport from Oxford including timetable info for the bus or train here. That means if you are booking cycle tour, you will need to depart Oxford usually at about 9am.
