Warwicknwas amazing

This was a long day but well worth it. Our guide Charlotte was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. She helped manage the time well in each location. Oxford is a great trip and really interesting and will be of interest to fans of Harry Potter. We only drove through the Cotswolds, but that was good enough. It didn't feel like we needed to stop. Stratford-on-Avon was delightful and great for anyone who loves Shakespeare. Warwick Castle was the icing on the cake of this day. Really a fun trip overall, and again Charlotte, as well as our driver Jim, were great travel companions!

We took this tour on May 17, 2016. Phil kept us entertained and gave us a lot of historical information. It was a good trip with a good guide. Warwick Castle is a grand structure. The other places on the tour were interesting because of their historical significance.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

I traveled to London over Spring break with 4 high school students. I chose this tour as it gave us a chance to see quite a bit of the countryside in one day. It exceeded my expectations! The walking tour through Oxford was leisurely and informative. The drive through the Cotswolds was great, and the kids thoroughly enjoyed seeing Shakespeare's home, and loved touring Warwick Castle! Great value for money!
