It was a wonderful tour! The tour guide was brilliant - very informative! It was a fun day!
The trip, guide and driver were great in spite of the rain at Warwick we enjoyed ourselves immensely!
The tour was excellent. The tour guide was very nice and helped us appreciate the value of all places we visited. The itinerary is well planned and beautiful.
We really enjoyed this trip as our tour guide was excellent and very helpful. There was quite a bit of confusion at the bus station before the trip started
I really had a good time , but just a bit too short time at Warwick castle
We enjoyed our tour and William was a wonderful guide. He was professional, funny and super organised. The only reason why we didn't give the tour 5 stars has nothing to do with William or the tour operator but simply because we were somewhat horrified by the tackiness which has overtaken Warwick Castle. I think the Kingmaker would turn in his grave if he knew that his awesome castle has been turned in a Disney like theme park for young children - many of who were running through the castle unsupervised grabbing tapestries and worse. The extraordinary history of the castle was lost amongst the profiliation of wax figures in the castle, and the cartoon characters roaming the site complete with fake swords. Having said that, we wish we'd had the time to walk around the grounds as such away from the spectacle as they looked quite beautiful from our vantage point when we climbed to the top of one of the buildings.
Statford on Avon was lovely although we didn't go into Shakespeare's house and just enjoyed walking around the very pretty town. Oxford, particularly the university, was also interesting and again very enjoyable and worth taking the time to visit.
Overall we recommend this tour, and particularly this tour operator, but if you are history buffs as we were, prepare to be disappointed by what you find at Warwick Castle.
This trip was great! We personally would have liked more time at Warwick and less at Stratford. Our favorite was Oxford! Our tour guide was absolutely great! She was so knowledgable and humorous too. It was nice to have a day where we rode on a bus instead of the tube! It was actually relaxing after the days and days of walking and riding the tube for sightseeing. I would recommend this tour!
Nice trip. Informative guide. Enjoyed walking thru the town of Warwick and Stratford. Oxford was super!
Great tour even though at some places one felt the time allocated was too short. Very comfortable bus, good driver and an excellent tour guide by the name of Monica.
Great guide loved Oxford however would totally have skipped Stratford or at least skipped his house tour. Maybe just explore the town instead.
Oxford was great -wish we could have spent more time there. Was not a fan of Warwick Castle--very disney like
The trip was great very well paced and a great combination. The only negative was the lack of information provided by the tour guide about each of the optional tours. We ended up paying a much higher price for entrance to Warwick castle as we decided once we got there to go inside.the bus was spotless and windows very clean which allowed us to take photos. I would very much recommend the tour.
We enjoy this trip, we found that this historical place is ready well keep
and full of life history as we are born at the same time.
