Tour guide did a great job. Everything ran prompt and smoothly. Id suggest a touch more time at Oxford- even another 30 mins would have made a big difference.
This was a really great tour, but a little rushed. Each stop was special in its own way. I would go back and spend more time in each town. The driver and assistant were friendly and very helpful. My only complaint is that I judged the tour by the title and assumed Warwick was the last stop. It was not. My daughter and I were planning on staying in Warwick. We ended up having to purchase a train ticket to get back up to Warwick once in Oxford. Would do it again though.
Rhys was our wonderful guide for the day. We really enjoyed visiting all three areas and the ride was smooth and informative. Highly recommended for those who prefer to leave the driving in expert hands...thanks to Mark.
I loved the tour and our tour guide. I REALLY liked the 'green box' communication system. It made hearing and understanding what our tour guide said so easy. Our tour guide Robyn was very knowledgeable and had a very nice rapport with the the range of ages on our tour.
I made the booking just a day before the tour via Viator's app - which was a breeze! Our tour guide Monica was a gem! She spoke in English and Portuguese, with much wit and charm! She gave us a crash course on English history en route, which I find very interesting. First stop was Warwick Castle - we were given roughly 1.5 hours there. My partner and I sneaked off to its garden cafe instead, only returning to the castle proper about half an hour to meeting time. Then we went on to Stratford-on-Avon, spending another hour or so discovering Shakespeare's birthplace. Try to grab a bite at the town square, as stops were limited in frequency and duration. A drive through the Cotswolds took us to Oxford - Monica's knowledge about this university city made me wonder if she graduated from it! Lots of walking, so wear comfortable shoes! I know this tour was a sampler tour, and one mustn't expect too much from it due to time constraints. But having said that, a quick stop at the picturesque Cotswolds would've been marvelous. I had taken a trip to the Cotswolds in summer back in year 2000, so I know the area was worth at least half an hour for pics. But overall, this was a very enjoyable trip, and highly recommended for those who don't have the luxury of time and access to own transportation. Just sit back, relax and take in the scenery!
Emily was very informative, and the trip was well-structured. She knew all about what sights to see. Given an optional walking tour and time on our own to explore, it was a good balance between tourism and exploration. She also knew all about where to eat and where to find the toilets! All in all, a great day trip.

Had a lovely day touring. Our guide, Anthony was excellent. He provided commentary on the bus, ansered questioned then took us through Warwick Castle and on a walk around Oxford. Enjoyed driving through the Cotswolds.
We had the best tour guide ever!! Rodney was extremely knowledgeable, very nice and quite funny. His droll humor kept us entertained throughout the otherwise tiring journey. The tour itself was wonderful and cost effective too. We felt like we could have used a little bit more time in Oxford but we understand the need for a tight schedule when covering all four places. Warwick castle was the highlight of our trip but the ride through Cotswolds was amazing as well. One of the best tours we've ever been on ! All the best to Rodney from Sri Lanka !! : :
This is a great day out. Highlight was Warwick Castle itself - a really interesting and interactive experience. we were recommended this day trip by relatives and it lived up to everything that was promised.
The local operator is very good. Comfortable coach and humourous tour guide which add lots of fun. Visiting four locations in just 1 day is time and cost effective.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Would highly recommend.
Great tour! My only complaint is that we didn't get to spend more time in Oxford.
It was a great tour very interesting. Never felt hurried and had ample of time at each place. The tour director was fabulous and so full of knowledge. Would recommend it to anyone.
Excellent tour...great coverage in one day without it being tiring. And the guide was a funny and knowledgeable man, had a great time cheers
My favorite part was Oxford, my wife's was the drive through the Cotswolds, and Stratford and Warwick will be etched in my memory forever! This was the best day of our entire vacation, and if I could do only one bus tour in England, it would be this one. Fantastic!
it was a very interesting experience to spend a day with Tony our guide.
Wonderful guide. Fantastic presentation. Everything went like clockwork. Very organized. Bus very comfortable. Driver very proficient. Children delighted with the sights and descriptions.
The tour was awesome. We toured the castle inside and out, very impressive. We saw the cotswolds landscape and heard about the history. We toured Shakespeare's home and explored his village. We then toured the Oxford campus and heard about the great history of the place. A lot was packed in but it went by fast. Very enjoyable day. The tour guide was great too.
Very good experience- enjoyed ourselves - the guide was friendly and knowledgable - a little more time in Startford would have been nice.
Un lindo recorrido. Importante en estos casos era la puntualidad que siempre se dio. Utilizan el tiempo lo mas eficiente posible para poder ver todos los puntos. Lo recomiendo sin dudar.
The day trip was absolutely fantastic. We had a great day. One of the highlights for me was the wonderful tour guide. She was exceptional. She was so knowledgeable and friendly. Of course the scenery was just out of this world. A most enjoyable day.
Very comprehensive tour and quite well done. Our tour guide, Anthony, was the most knowledgeable tour guide we've ever had. He was enthusiastic and his knowledge was boundless. He was able to answer any question thrown at him. I would highly recommend Viator Tours.
