An incredible tour for the Downton Abbey lover! A full day packed with history and beauty. I highly recommend it!
FANTASTIC TOUR!!! Apart from the very early start.
But really, if you love Downton Abbey, you must do this tour.
Definitely spent alot of time in and around the house and gardens. The lunch and morning tea was very nice too.
Do yourself a favour and book the tour.
Comfortable ride, knowledgeable guide, adequate time at each locale.
Seeing Highclere, in person, was definitely a highlight of my stay in England. I highly recommend this tour!
Lovely to see where it all happened. Would recommend going in the off season if possible as it was crowded and hard to spend any time in a particular place. Amazing grounds and gardens. Would be nice to have some souvenirs with the Downton Abbey label.
As a Downton fan, this was one of my favorites in my recent trip back to the U.K. The grounds are gorgeous.
If you are a fan of Downtown Abbey, this is a perfect tour for you. We visited other places where Downtown Abbey was shot too.
Andrew was fantastic! When you participate any tours, the key is who your guide is! Andrew, as this leader of Downton Abbey tour, was a super fan, and made our tour experience more than just visiting locations. Highclere castle opens inside to the public only a limited time of the year. When I was planning the trip to London, I realized that we would be there when the castle was open. So I booked this trip. In the morning, we visited 2 memorable sites from the show. And the afternoon, we visited the castle! When we walked in the entrance, Countess of Carnavon was there. Inside, no pictures taken. It was such a pleasure to walk down the stairs where Lady Mary walked down in her wedding dress, to be in the room where the cast members were hanging, to peek in the room where Lady Grantham used as her bedroom... We had about 3 hours there. More than enough time to eat lunch, go inside and walk around the gardens. I wish I could see the servants downstairs kitchen and rooms to compare with upstairs, but those areas were no longer there. If you like the show, this is a great tour.

Tour guide was a big fan of Downton Abbey, which made it even more enjoyable, and we got to watch the series finale on the bus ride back to London.
One of the BEST trips EVER! I love Downton Abbey so much and is was great to see the Castle and Manor farm/house. The food at the castle was very yummy!
The guide is knowledgeable and entertaining. The highlight is obviously Highclere Castle and it is incredible to see inside.
Note that you are not allowed to take photos inside the Castle. You get to see some other sets where they taped the show but obviously less interesting than the Castle and could go without.
This is the trip to take if you are a Downton Abbey fan. First stop was Cogge's Farm where all of the farm shots were taken. Then Bampton, which was the village of Downton. And then the castle. Great trip that lasted about 11 hours. Guide, Andy, was great and very knowledgeable.
This was fabulous! Our tour guide proudly told us that she wrote this tour for Viator. It was excellent. We had 3 stops and plenty of time at each one. The castle was last, we had 2 1/2 hours. It was a wonderful fun day!
Highly recommend this trip to any Downton fan! Our tour guide Debbie was wonderful, very friendly and full of lots of Downton trivia. Even my non-Downton fan husband enjoyed the day.
Fantastic and very informative tour guide, absolutely loved it.
For Downton Abbey fans, this is a must. I expected that Highclere Castle would be the highlight of this tour - and it is indeed beautiful - but the other aspects are great too... the Downton grounds, Yew TreeFarm, and the town. The trip left on time and even though there are 3 locales, there is plenty of time to see things in as much detail as die-hard fans like me could want. Debbie, who originated the tour, was our guide and she is very animated and attentive to people's needs. Lots of inside gossip, too. Oh, and you'll be able to eat well as there are cafes and tea rooms - makes it a complete day!
Wonderful guide, with lots of knowledge. Fun day seeing all the places we loved on the show.
This was a fabulous tour and one we will never forget. Our tour guide, Debbie, was so knowledgeable about the castle, the village, the farm and the actors in the series. There was absolutely nothing negative about the trip from the time we were picked up to the time the trip was over.
Terrific tour and very good tour guide Debbie. My only criticism is that I was told on my booking that drop off would be back to the same pick up location. We were dropped near Victoria Station, involving getting the tube back to accommodation near the pick up spot.
I totally recommend it. Our tour guide had an in-depth knowledge of both the castle, the history behind it and the series. Fans of Downton Abbey will definitely enjoy this trip.
