Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the 2-Day Cotswolds, Bath and Oxford Small-Group Tour from London. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This tour met my expectation and was a good side trip out of London to get a little taste of how it feels to live in small villages. The guide (Peter) was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The coach was very clean. I'd definitely go with this tour provider again for their other offerings if I happen to be there.
We have booked tours through Viator a number of times and will do so again in the future because we have always had excellent experiences! This one was no exception with every aspect pretty much as advertised; i.e., small group (we had 13 plus the driver/guide), very nice mini-bus, locations matched the itinerary, accommodations were great, and the guide/driver was very good (he just talked a lot and we got more than enough information and history!). We recommend this tour with no hesitation!
The tour with Steve, our guide/driver, was everything we hoped for. The Ivy House in Cirencester definitely gets 5 stars. The only suggestion would be to shorten the time in Bath or Oxford to allow for an hour in Cirencester, a true Cotswold town, when it is open. Unfortunately, we arrived around 6PM and left at 9AM the next day. Bath and Oxford are so crowded and full of chain store shops.
This was our first trip to the UK and this tour was the perfect way to see the beautiful English countryside over a 2 day excursion. Kevin was a very competent and entertaining tour guide. We would highly recommend these tours not only because of our amazing tour guide, but also for its small tour busses (16 passengers max) which make for a very relaxing tour with easy transitions in and out of the destinations. We loved every second of this trip!
Fantastic trip. Great tour director and fantastic being in a small coach
Outstanding trip; well-planned and paced. Our driver Kevin was very engaging and well-informed (and also a very competent driver)! The little Cotswolds villages were just as we pictured them, and visiting 4 of them was just about right. It was great fun spending the night in one, and we also greatly enjoyed the opportunity to see both Bath and Oxford. The tour was everything we could have hoped for.
Beautiful and so different from the busyness of London. Nice to have a smaller group. Driver and guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I felt safe and well informed!
Fantastic tour. Covered a good range of destinations , great accommodation and excellent value for money. Pete was a brilliant guide/ driver, couldn't ask for better a service.
Just incredible! Our guide was super fun and helpful, he gave us several great recommendations on shops and places to visit. All the towns and cities we visited were just lovely! The B and B I stayed in was wonderful, and as it was also a pub, you didn't even need to go out to have dinner.
Overall, this tour was amazing and I'd absolutely do it all over again so I can keep exploring those dreamy locations!
I was very impressed with the knowledge and consideration that Kevin gave us while visiting the Cotswolds.
I stayed in quaint B and B with a full English Breakfast. The entire experience was delightful.
Everything was perfect!
I was the only passenger and they did the tour all the same. Peter was my guide, he is really prepared for his job, we chatted all the journey about history, literature and many other topics. He recommended me what to see in each place and I learnt a lot with his comments.
The towns and villages we visited were stunningly beautiful. I can't say one was better than other, because every place has its own charm.
I would really recommend Rabbies to anyone who wants to enjoy a tour from London. This particular 2 days journey to Bath, the Costwolds and Oxford is worth doing it!
To start with the bus was perfect and just the right number of people (16). Our tour guide was the best we have ever had!!!! She was very was well informed on the areas we traveled to and gave us lots of interesting information. She was like traveling with a friend and was very considerate of our needs. The destinations were interesting and varied. The small hotel we stayed at was perfect, quaint and wonderful food in their restaurant. This tour made us love the English countryside!!! I would take another Rabbies tour anytime!!!
Excellent! Immensely entertaining and great guide. Enjoyed thoroughly. Will do it again.
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!
