Our Guide was great and very knowledgeable about both the destinations and sights along the way.
We would have liked more time at Blenheim Palace as 11/2 hours was not enough to vies the State Rooms and stroll in the beautiful gardens. We suggest that only the two Cotswold villages of Bibury and Boughto-on-the-Water be included in this itinerary. The Downton Abbey village only represents a venue for a fictional TV series.
Complimentary hotel pick-up was much appreciated as was a choice of drop-off spots convenient to public transportation.
We saw so much, our guide was excellent and was able to give us a lot of information. Definitely recommend it.
We had a great time! The guide, Rob and driver, Victor the driver made the day! We loved the Blenheim Palace and grounds, which was my personal favourite and the stops along the way at charming towns and villages in the Cotswolds was really quite lovely. The tour was perfect with not too much walking, but it was still a fairly active trip. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the countryside and one of England's spectacular palaces!
Great tour. Lots of variety. There was a wedding at the Downton Abbey church while we were there!!!
Tour guide Andrew was amazing.
He is a true scholar and incredible organizer.
Also, the country side and palace were unbelievable!
Very nice tour - gave us a taste of the Cotswolds and Blenheim palace. Now we want to go back when we can spend more time at each place. Our guide was very good and informative, and our driver was great! Coach was very nice as well. Will use Viator again!

Great day! The villages were lovely and Sheila, our tour guide, was great! Very knowledgeable and entertaining!
Blenheim was amazing. It is hard to believe that people actually live this way. Our driver 'Chill' Jill and the tour guide, Debra, made this trip great. They are the dynamic duo for sure. What I loved about Debra was her knowledge about English history and the destinations we explored and her relaxed manner of speaking. Her guiding was very conversational which appealed to me. Both my daughter and I said that we would book a tour with the local tour operator again based on the tour guide and driver. We went on another tour with another company and it all felt rushed. Debra and Jill were on the side of the tourists they really did their best to give us as much time to look around as they were allowed to do based on their own time schedules.
The guide, Leslie, and driver were competent and helpful. The tour and its various destinations were well planned and completed within the allotted time frame. Leslie gave us some fascinating background on the Cotswolds, and on Blenheim, and the time in the villages and the Blenheim building and grounds were enriched by her preparatory commentary. We would recommend this tour as informative, comprehensive, and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
We had a wonderful time! Our guide was amazing and lots of fun!!! We will definitely us Viator again!
Magical, fantastic, bus great, tour guide was great and scenery superb. The guide was just right. Gave interesting information but not too much. Was very happy to drop us off at out hotels on the way home.
Gave us clear time limits each time we stopped in an area. Blenheim Palace was fantastic and the Dowton Abbey part was good too. I really loved seeing those things. The Cotswolds were superb and the whole day was fantastic. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Great day trip from London. Well informed and entertaining guide. Blenheim Palace was beautiful. The Cotswold and the Downton Abbey village were great. My wife's only complaint is she wanted more time in the Downton Abbey village, you get about 20 mins. Overall great day trip!
This was a great tour. Downton Abbey Village and the Cotswolds were cute and it was nice to stop by to see them, but really Blenheim Palace was the main draw. Beautiful, beautiful palace and grounds. Worth getting out of London for the day to see the countryside. Definitely book this trip.
Our tour guide was fantastic, fun, knowledgeable and considerate of all on board. A very well planned day with adequate time and instruction for everything from timing at sites to food to bathroom breaks. A very pleasant and enjoyable experience. A delightful day and would highly recommend this trip to everyone.
Would recommend this tour to my friends, especially Blenheim Palace.
We had a nice tour and we really enjoyed all the destinations. If I had on criticism it would be the lack of organization at the Victoria Station. People didn't seem to know where to go for their tours and it was hard to find an agent to help. it was almost impossible to hear announcements.
This was a great tour with a great guide. Beautiful villages and an amazing palace.
We loved the small villages but did not have enough time to really appreciate everything. I would eliminate one of the villages. Blenheim Palace was amazing!!

Great oportunity to see different Costwolds towns in the same day, finishing with Blenheim Palace, although the Dowton Abbey Village is quite disappointing. If you want to choose this tour because of the series, it
The tour guide was really great and the things we saw were wonderful, but it was too much bus time. I and #39;m more fast paced and this was a bit more relaxing.
