David was our tour guide and he made the trip very fun! Oxford was beautfiul and since we are huge Downtown Abbey fans, seeing Highclere Castle in person was surreal! A great trip and good amount of time in both Oxford and Highclere.

This tour completed our vacation stay in England and it was the capstone event. We were so excited to get to Highclare Castle that we were almost looking past the morning in Oxford. David, our tour guide, gave us a gold star tour of Christ Church College and almost made us forget about Downton Abbey. What a wonderful place of learning and tradition that is observed to this day. Downton Abbey was everything we thought it would be with the added benefit of being blessed with great weather and the chance to explore the beautiful Castle gardens. The bus service and all the touring activity was of the highest standard offering a wonderful experience and lifetime memory.

our tour guide David was amazing, he is such a fun person and makes history interesting. it makes sense as his day job is teaching school boys but his stories make the trip that much more enjoyable. the tour itself is awesome the places you go on this tour make you want to stay longer but you never really feel pressed for time on this trip. we had a lovely almost 4hrs in Osford which left us enough time to eat at a local pub (the Eagle and Child) and do a little shopping before getting on the bus for Highclere Castle. when you get to the castle we had almost 2 hrs there which was more then enough time to read everything in the house and enjoy the inside as well as have a cup of tea (which i highly recommend) and walk around to take some seriously awesome pictures. there were hardly any people at the house and it felt like we were the only ones there it wsa an amazing trip!!! take this trip if you have the opportunity and fingers crossed you get David as your guide!

Tour of Highclere Castle and Oxford was great! Our tour guide was well versed in the history and made the whole day a lot of fun as well. Even though weather did not cooperate, our guide made the best of a very rainy day.

The tour was definitely everything we were hoping for and more. What took the tour over the top was the tour guide we think his name was David. Anyway if we have his name wrong sorry, but we give the tour guide AAA+++ he made the tour. The next time we are in London we will definitely take another tour.
Thank You we had a great time,
Gary and Shammy Velton

Guide David and driver Martin excellent! Very informed trip. Not rushed with a good balance of free time and guided tour. Loved every minute of it.

Perhaps a more accurate title for the day trip would be Christ Church College Tour in Oxford with Downton Abbey Day Trip. The time at Downton Abbey was somewhat limited while the time in Oxford seemed to consume the majority of the trip.
Our tour guide was excellent as was the driver. I would highly recommend this trip. However, understand more time will be spent in Oxford than at Downton Abbey.

Our tour guide David was fantastic. His personality was fantastic and made the trip fun. He gave us lots of interesting information that filled in the time on the coach. We had enough time at each location to see everything we wanted to see so the trip was perfect for us.
