We enjoyed our day tour. Guide was pleasant. Viator needs to update their description since the tour only stopped at 2 Cotswold villages and Oxford.

Fist time using Viator and would definitely recommend. Lovely small tour on a comfortable minibus. Graham our driver and information centre was excellent and friendly. We visited Bibury, Bradford and then Oxford. Bibury was beautiful for photos and a quick walk. Bradford has a gorgeous church and lovely shops with delicious cream tea. Oxford was amazing and spent the entire time sightseeing and exploring the city. Very reasonable priced tour. Thank you for a great day!

Let me just start by saying Graham was the best guide. He was very funny and make the long drive fun. The sites we breath taking and worth every penny. I was a tiny bit disappointed that we didn't stop in Bampton since it was one of the villages listed in the tour description. Other than that I would do this tour again and again. Even my husband who hates going on tours said that this was is favorite part of our trip.

January in the Cotswolds - Worth the trip!

Had a great time this weekend taking Rabbie's one-day Oxford and Cotswolds Villages trip! John our driver was well informed and kept us entertained with local history, stories, jokes and music - also highlighting the do-not-miss places and treats like the local lardy cakes. Was great to get out of London for the day off-season to see iconic places like Burford and Bibury in addition to driving through some of the smaller town. Last stop was Oxford, enough time to get a sense of it but really needs a dedicated day or more on its own. All in all a fun day and would highly recommend.

Oxford and Traditional Cotswolds Villages Small-Group Day Tour from London

My wife and I have utilized Viator services many times in Europe over the years. We've always been very happy with the tours and tour guides. However, this trip had a bit too much windshield time & not enough boots on the ground time. The crowds at Oxford were over the top. The Harry Potter franchise has turned the place into Disneyland. The tour needed more time in the Cotswolds.

Love the small group tour. Will defiantly recommend and use Rabbies again. We loved the small 16 passenger bus. The guide was very knowledgeable.

Very nice small group tour! The tour guide was great. He told nice stories, and informed of what we were seeing around us. But, also knew when to be silent and let us just enjoy the country side. I liked being dropped off in the towns to explore on our own, but also guidance on what to see. They day flew by. We got a lot in during the day. Getting out of London was easier than getting back in that evening. But, our experienced driver knew how to maneuver through the back roads of the city. It was a laid back tour, which is just what we wanted. I felt like we had enough time in each village. Most of the small villages were just for photo opportunities, which is really what this kind of tour is.
