What You Can Expect
Your first destination is Wiltshire, a rural county of small villages and scenic landscapes, perfect for a relaxing day in the country. Visit the three stone circles of Avebury, the lesser-known sister of Stonehenge. Stop by the Marlborough White Horse, which is a hill figure, cut in the ground in 1804 by school pupils and the Abbey house, which was once home to the Talbot family. Then head to the village of Lacock, the setting for many TV and film productions, including Pride and Prejudice and the Harry Potter films.
Your guide will then take you to the city of Bath, famous for its Georgian architecture, where you will see the city’s renowned Roman Baths. You'll have enough free time there to explore the town and grab lunch. (at owns expense) Take a deep breath of the hot steam and feel a bit like the Romans felt 2000 years ago.
Your first day ends in Cirencester, a small market town in the heart of the Cotswolds, where you’ll stay the night in either a 3-star bed and breakfast or 3-star hotel (your choice). Your guide will recommend you some local restaurants, where you can enjoy your dinner (at own expense).
After breakfast (included), explore more of the Cotswolds. Visit Bourton-on-the-Water, the so-called ‘Venice of Cotswolds’; Stow-on-the Wold, a small market town; and Woodstock, home to the magnificent Blenheim Palace, which you’ll admire from the outside. (only exterior visit)
Last but not least, make your way to Oxford and discover the charming college courtyards and winding alleys. Harry Potter fans may recognize a few places used in the films!
Head back to London with a new appreciation for the English countryside.
This was the highlighted tour of our trip. Rubert was our tour guide/van driver. He stopped at many different little villages and gave us time to walk around or shop. He was very knowledgeable about the Cotswolds. He was so helpful and went out of his way to assist us. He even looked up train schedules for us to continue onto Godlaming! He dropped us off at the train station, helped us buy our tickets, and brought us to the platform. He's awesome. We felt very secure knowing we were in good hands.
We stayed at The Bungalow one night. The host and hostess there were very gracious. The room was very clean and pretty!
We started our 2 days trip in London with Rabbies Trai Burners. We were a small group of tourists from different countries and we spent 2 beautiful days. Our guide/driver Kevin was very profesional, helpful and kind. He shared with us a lot of interested historical and local information. We visited some small villages and enjoyed the beautiful countryside. A great experience!
We recommend this trip.
