Great places to visit. Tour guide was excellent. Easy to understand and very informative.
By far, the best part of this tour was our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and had been a student at Oxford, so he was able to give us a lot of insider information about the school and students. The castle was pretty neat, and my only small complaint was that we didn't have much time to explore on our own after our guide was done explaining things to us. Overall, money well spent on this tour.
This was a wonderfull trip, very relaxing and informative. The guide was excellent. His knowledge and insight into the locations and it's history was like attending a college lecture by your favorite professor. He also had a sense of humor that we Americans call typically British. I regret that I do not recall his name. I only wish I had my five grandchildren with us at Warwich Castle, as it is a wonderful place for young children to visit.. Once again, it was a great experience that we will remember for everI
This was a fast paced, but amazing trip. It gives you a taste of some of England's most most iconic locations outside of London. Our tour guide, Ed, was amazingly knowledgeable. I am currently finishing my PhD in Elizabethan and Jacobean drama, and I was even continually impressed with Ed's wide range of knowledge, yet it was still easily accessible for anyone (like my wife) who has little knowledge of the sites visited. We had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend this trip.
The only downside to this tour was that it was cold and rainy, certainly not the fault of any human agency! The tour guide, Tony, was a veritable fountain of information and very congenial throughout. We can, and do, recommend this tour as an excellent way to get an overview of the attractions included.
Paddy is quite an entertaining scholar and possibly the best tour guide ever. He made our trip meaningful and memorable. Everything was well organized...a pleasure. Thank you for a wonderful day!
My friends and I had such a blast! The bus ride was comfortable and our tour guide (Rodney) was very entertaining and informative. The only thing I would say is that I wished that we had more time in Stratford/Oxford and less at Warwick Castle. Other then that, it was a very enjoyable day and would highly recommend this tour!
A perfect trip with Picturesque view ... loved everything ...big thanks for our Guide Richard ...
Outstanding tour itinerary and knowledgeable pleasant guide. We loved our day outside of London. We highly recommend this tour.
It was a nice leisurely experience. Loved the on our own time. Guide and driver excellent
We really loved this full day tour and would highly recommend it.
After a very prompt pick up from The Ritz by an amazing guide, Phil...he was fantastic... for the short trip to Victoria Station we joined the coach and our wonderful guide for the day, Richard Cunliffe.
An hours drive in real comfort in a luxury coach and with great information along the way from Richard ,took us to Oxford where we enjoyed a fabulous walking tour, and then time on our own to shop and meander. Through the picturesque Cotswolds we then drove, past Blenheim Palace, arriving at Stratford upon Avon where we did a tour of Shakespeares Birth house and then had further time to explore and shop.Our final stop was at Warwick Castle, an enjoyable 90 minutes spent exploring and seeing the Madame Tussauds models
Excellent all day tour .. loved Warwick Castle; thought the Madame Tuassad's wax figures brought a certain "reality" to life in the heyday of the castle; Stratford-on'Avon was a delightful English village - wish we had had more time there; Oxford University and the city were a wonderful history lesson. Monica, our tour guide, was fabulous and may the day very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this tour.
We had a perfectly beautiful day for this tour! The drive out of the city was spectacular and each stop was prettier than the next! A great way to see the English countryside!!
Beautiful weather made the journey delightful. Our guide, Russell was outstanding and entertaining.
Fantastic trip with our tour guide, Rodney, operated by Evan Evans. During a recent 5 day family trip with our two teens to London, we wanted to get a day outside the city. This a great option. Oxford, Cotswolds, Strarford on Avon and Warwick is a lot to see in one day. But it is a good mix of experiences and you get a small taste at each place- breadth over depth. While it is a long day, there is ample down time on the bus between stops. Still, be prepared for a long high energy day. We opted to meet the tour at Victoria Station; we read that the hotel pick up was unpredictable and took a long time. When leaving the hotel en route to Victoria we ran into the tour coordinator outside of hotel picking up other guests and decided to ride along to Victoria. This was a good move. The organization at Victoria is a bit confusing, but the tour operated on the bus helped us navigate the actual tour buses. It would have been very difficult to understand without the hotel pickup and orientation. The bus was comfortable with a safe, professional driver. Rodney, our tour guide, was outstanding. He provided just enough information and didn't overwhelm us with too much. Oxford is a walking tour through the beautiful city and colleges. We missed Christ Church as it was closed that day (I think it's now closed to all tours). S on A is interesting, but quite touristy. Still, it’s a must see in England. You don't have enough time to get outside the tourist area. Warwick is not to be missed. Stunning medieval castle. Overall, a great day for adults and teens.
