Wonderful tour. Warwick castle is magnificent. Most of the items exhibit in the Grand Hall are genuine. There are two trebuchets placed outside the castle make you wonder how they were used during medieval times. A trip to Oxford passing by Cotswolds town is an unforgettable journey. The picturesque landscape is very beautiful. A visit to world renowned Oxford University complete the tour. A special thank to the guide, Ms. Monica, a Brazilian with deep knowledge in English history. Very professional.

This is a great excursion but again, Viator should include the entrance fee to the castle. You definitely want to go inside and climb the towers.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, highly recommended! The bus driver was very nice and friendly too. The guide gave us some really interesting facts about the places we visited, but the format of the tour also allows you to explore things on your own. Highly recommend you stick with the guide for the visit to Oxford as she took us to some really nice places, and had some great information that I wouldn't have seen on my own. Best seats in the bus are usually up front, so get there early if you can :
