What a lovely trip this was, and worth every cent. The country-side was glorious, with carpets of yellow rapeseed canola in bloom, herds of sheep grazing in the green pastures, and the busy little villages with ancient buildings still in use! Our driver, Marco, was an excellent driver, and our tour guide, Monica, was outstanding in every way! Each place we stopped was steeped in history, and I'd take the same tour in a heart-beat!
Wonderful tour. Everything went very smoothly. Picked up on time and stayed on schedule throughout the day. Tony was very informative and handled the group well. Our bus driver was an expert. Oxford is amazing - the Cotswalds are beautiful you drive through only and loved Stratford-on-Avon and learning more about Shakespeare. Full day experience at a good price. We did this tour before our cruise out of South Hampton. Thank you Viator.
Great tour guide--very informative. Very comfortable bus. Each stop was great! Wished there had been a little more free time at each spot, but there was a lot of ground to cover. Highly recommend for a taste at each unique area!
An excellent tour with lots of history and beauty, but it is a lot to see in one day. We would have liked more time at all three stops Oxford, Stratford on Avon, and Warwick Castle however that would have been a multi-day or much longer one day trip. Still very good even is a little rushed.
We hit the jackpot with our tour guide Anthony Tony! What an amazing and interesting character he is, and what a privilege to learn from his knowledge and insights. The tour was beautifully organised, cannot fault it! Loved loved LOVED it!
An amazing tour. Very beautiful locations and very knowledgable guide. Had a fun trip. Would definitely recommend this trip to everyone.
Was fun! Amazing to acheive so much in one day without ever feeling rushed.
Amazing trip and tour! Our tour guide was hilarious and so knowledgable about every site we went to. Highly recommend this day trip!
Our tour guide Claudia and bus driver Paul were both super nice. Bus was comfortable and tour was great. Just enough time to get a chance to see several interesting things.
Loved this tour. Warwick castle was really interesting place - we haven't heard about it before so there was much to learn. Wish we had more time in Oxford...
This tour was excellent the tour guide was great, I don't remember the name, we took two Viator tours, this one and one to Stonehenge, but both tour guides were well informed, very knowlegable, and considerate. We were picked up right across the street from out hotel, the Queen's Terrace in Kensington, on Queensborough St.
Our guide Anthony Matthews was not only well organized, but also knowledgeable.He reorganized the sequence of visits to best meet our need to avoid rain while on a walking tour. He was pleasant and presented the material in an interesting manner.
I did this tour at the end of December. Beware: this time of year, these areas are rainy and cold. Bundle up and bring an umbrella! The tour itself was great. Our tour operator was very informative and even gave some history of the towns along the way. Oxford University is made up of more than 30 different colleges dispersed throughout the medieval town of Oxford. You will be passing through the Cotswolds, which is composed of several towns. Stratford-on-Avon is beautiful town. Make your way to the river where you'll find a statue of Shakespeare. Even though Warwick Castle is run by Madame Tussauds, it is very tastefully done. I highly recommend this tour.
Our tour through Warwick, the English countryside, Stratford and Oxford was amazing. One of the highlights of a 5 day trip in London. Emily, our tour guide was fantastic!
This was a wonderful tour. Monica did a terrific job and was super informative. Her lovely humour keep us interested and she took excellent care of us. Highly recommended.
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!
