My friend and I were to travel together on this trip but due to family illness she couldn't come and so my husband stepped in. Because she hadn't seen England before I booked this trip to Windsor Casle, Stratford and Oxford in a day! John and I enjoyed it even though we had seen it all before as the tour guide was informative and made it very interesting. We took some great photos to show and tell at home. If you haven't much time this is a great day to see famous and beautiful sights.
Outstanding guide, really brought the history to life. Would have liked more time in Statford and to have seen the Globe Theater,

This was a wonderful day out. We were collected at our hotel in London ahead of the tour start time and shuttled to Victoria Coach Station to board the luxury tour bus. The guide was very amenable and knowlegeable, and imparted information than one could not get doing it on one's own. It's a lot to do in one day, in terms of distances covered, but we felt that we had sufficient time at each site. Times were strictly adherred to, which definitely helped to ensure that everything was covered in the time available. All ticket prices were included in the tour price, so good value in all. Our favorite feature was Christ Church College in Oxford. This tour is highly recommended.
Very fun tour. Warwick Castle was great! Lunch was very tasty and Oxford was impressive. Great excursion!
Another very good experience, thanks to Viator. The day was packed full with wonderful sights and great information.
Great day - well recommend this tour if you only have a little time to see some English country side.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable which added to the experience. Warwick Castle has a lot of narrow winding stairs so one needs to be reasonably fit.
We did not realise that we would not be dropped back at our hotel of departure though.
Enjoyed all visited sights - all deserved a more in depth viewing - maybe next time. Guides quickly adjusted route - due to accident - greatful not to be stuck in traffiic.
Great trip but could have done with more time at Warwick castle. Mark our guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly.
Wow! Warwick Castle is exactly like I imagined a Medieval Castle. There was some pretty cheesy parts, but the landscape and tower are great and the employees are very knowledgeable. The timing on Stratford was great - it was Will's birthday. I appreciated getting to see how 16th century peasants lived. We only drove by the cottage, but the driver was good enough to show us many thatched roofs and the Costwolds tour was great. We took a side trip to see a couple of miscellaneous items and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Oxford is equally beautiful and the timing of the tour was just right, not too rushed, not too slow. I'd say this was definitely a highlight!
Our guide, Paul, was top-notch (and the bus driver was, too) on this tour. Enjoyed all of the stops, but if you like Harry Potter, you should do this. We were informed that due to an event, the hall at Christ Church would not be available to us. Luckily, Paul has connections and we were able to enter. Another day well spent!
If you are looking for a way to see places in England outside of London, this is a great way to accomplish that goal. If you want in-depth experiences at each of these places, you might be disappointed. I felt like I learned a decent amount of history about each location. It was also nice that once we were at the sights, we did have time to explore on our own instead of sticking together as a group. It really was a great tour and I highly recommend it!!!
Magical trip to the Cotswolds. A brand new coach, a university educated tour guide. A sunny day in the country side. This tour covers plenty but leaves you with enough time to spend at each place to soak up the history. We had a great time !
Brilliant tour, would suggest it to anyone. Would have preferred some more time in Stratford since it is a lovely place. Paul, our Irish guide, was excellent and he kindly also arranged to drop us off as close as possible to our hotel. Again, well done Viator.
