5-Day Best of England Small-Group Tour: Oxford, the Cotswolds and Bath

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Wow! I cannot give this tour more praise. Our guide took us to all of the places in the brochure, plus many wonderful little side trips. We saw the Dartmoor ponies, sheep in the mist, clapper bridges, hillside giants and horses carved in the ground, and small villages that transported us back in time. Our home base had a wonderful little pub with some of the best food I've eaten.

The only negative comment I have is to the city of Winchester. I traveled to the UK to study King Arthur, and when I tried to get in to the Great Hall to take pictures of the round table, it was closed for a private function. I snuck past the workers and got my pics anyway. They yelled at me, but I just kept taking pictures. Boo Winchester. Don't close your history to the public just for private functions.

Our group consisted of eight people, counting ourselves, and it was small enough to get to know one another, eat together each evening, and make great friendships. There were hugs and sharing of addresses when all was done. This was the best tour we took in our two weeks in England. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

My Review
I stood amongst the stones, touched them, and checked one of the top items off of my "bucket list." This tour gets you right in amongst the stones. Wow! Not just twenty yards away, but right inside the circle. Lacock is a small, out of the way village that just oozes peace and tranquility. A great little stop for lunch. Bath was good, but very crowded. Just too many people to really enjoy this part of the tour.

London Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

My Review
Great tour and a wonderful tour guide. Our only disappointment was that many of the buildings, like the Tower of London, are partially covered and surrounded by scaffolding for refurbishment. This tour is fast paced and there is very little time to dawdle. But this is so that you can see the most in one day. A definite trip to take.
