Disfrute de una divertida y educativa escapada de un día a las dos ciudades universitarias más famosas de todo el mundo. Ilustrando la mente de innumerables talentos durante años, estas ciudades son tan hermosa como prestigiosas. La primera parada es Oxford, hogar de la universidad más antigua del mundo angloparlante. Realice un tour a pie guiado por la Biblioteca Bodleian y visite el Christ Church College, una de las ubicación de filmación de "Harry Potter". Después, viajará a la igualmente impresionante Cambridge para disfrutar de un recorrido por los históricos y arquitectónicos puntos de mayor interés.
Recorrer las calles de estas pequeñas ciudades y pasear por algunos de los recintos universitarios más reconocidos constituye una buena experiencia. El mal detalle de nuestra excursión del 23 de mayo lo constituyó el guía. El señor parecía tener gran afán, por lo que resultaba difícl seguirlo para quienes tenemos algunas limitaciones físicas. Además, en Oxford nos fijó como sitio de reunión la puerta de la igesia de la Universidad y cuando salimos ya se había ido sin sin haber controlado el número de personas del grupo y casi nos perdemos. Esta es la peor experiencia que he tenido en excursiones adquiridas a través de Viator.
We enjoyed it, as Oxford and Cambridge are great, in spite of our guide, who was running all the time, and in the bus she only repeated was is already published by Viator.
When arriving to the places, she hardly spent some time with us, talking only to the people who were next to her, and then letting us alone with no information about where to go, what not to miss, how long did it could take to go there and come back, etc.
A little bit disappointing because of the lack of information and the lack of attention.
Our guide David was so informative and helpful. He tried to accommodate everyone while giving us a fabulous and memorable tour. It was a long day. We boarded the bus at 8:30 am and returned to London at 7:30 pm but we had a lot to cover with a large group. The bus was very comfortable and accommodating and lunch which was included was quite plentiful we thought. We had a bit of free time to shop but mostly David’s commentary was much appreciated.
This was a very good tour. We got to see the highlights of Oxford and Cambridge, which is what we wanted. Do know that each city has a lot to offer and you won't get to see everything there is to see. This is a very good overview of both. The meeting point for the tour isn't that easy to find, so leave yourself a lot of time to find it. But once on the bus, we were well taken care of. Good tour leader. Good bus driver. We always felt well taken care of. I do recommend this tour.
This tour was 10 1/2 hours long. Out of this time we only spent 4 hours actually touring the included sites of Oxford and Cambridge. The rest of the time was spent traveling on the bus. Out of the 2 hours at each site, the guided portion only lasted about 1 hour and the rest of the time was on your own. No maps were provided so that you could find your way around, so everyone had to explore in a very limited area in order to find your way back to the bus. The guide was a very nice young man and the commentary he provided was very
informative. However, we had quite a large group including some older people and he walked quite rapidly from place to place. Everyone was not able to keep up with him and he began his commentary when just a few people were surrounding him. The rest of
the group missed part or sometimes all of what he was saying. My recommendation would be to not visit both sites on one tour in one
day. If someone is going to pay this much and have to spend so much time traveling to different sites, it would be much better to just
go to one site and have more of a guided tour rather than just being sent out on your own for such a significant period of time. It would
be much better to provide guided commentary for the full two hours or at least provide maps if the group is going to be given time to
explore on their own. I don't feel I received good value for the cost of the tour.
When we went on our Oxford and Cambridge tour, we arrived early to ensure we would catch out bus. The ticket number given to us was wrong, but thankfully the tour guides were quick and ready to help us. Our tour guide was a previous student of Oxford, so along the drive to Oxford we were able to learn about what the experience for a typical student would be at the university. Funny enough, she married someone from Cambridge so we had that input from her as well! She was also very informed regarding the history of both universities, so I felt we learned over and above what most tours would have provided. It was fantastic in this respect, however due to an individual arriving back late to the bus, our second half to Cambridge was considerably rushed and we were allowed minimal time at the King Cross Church. Nonetheless, our tour guide gave us a great introduction to these two places. We would definitely visit them both again on a single trip.
