I scheduled this tour as a surprise for my mom (huge Downton fan) during our trip. We had a fabulous experience with both our driver Malcolm and guide Frank. Each stop was timed just right. I would highly recommend this tour to any fans!
It would have been better to spend more time at Oxford University as there wasn't much to do at Highclere castle. The tour guide was excellent
We had my mom who is 80 and myself who are Downton Abbey fans and my 2 daughters (In their 20's) who are Harry Potter fans so Oxford was a great hit for them, Bampton was fun for us and we all loved Highclere Castle, with a bonus of having tea in the gardens at the end. Our guide John was excellent and our driver Steve did a great job.
This was a wonderful day trip, full of interesting stops and a very informative guide. The castle was everything I had hoped for and Oxford and
It was a very enjoyable tour. James was our guide and Richard was our driver, both very pleasant people. James was very knowledgeable and wore a standout outfit which made it easy to spot him when we had to meet at the bus. The bus station was initially very crowded but once we started boarding it went by relatively quickly. Expect travel time to be about an hour to each destination so it does cut down a bit of the Oxford exploring time but it was a bit overshadowed by the face that we had more than enough time at the Downton Abbey locations. Brampton was a nice and quaint little village and of course Highclere castle is as splendid as can be.
This tour was amazing! Julie our tour guide and Malcolm our driver were so helpful and knowledgeable about the places we visited. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in Downton Abbey or history in general.
I would highly recommend this tour. It was very well structured and gave plenty of time to visit in the Oxford and of course Highclere.

Incomparable: Dozens of Downtown Abbey fans, as excited a children heading to the circus. To punctuate it, the tour guide played the series' theme music as Highclere came into view. Loved every minute! Standing in the same spots as our favorite characters, peering into their bedrooms, walking the grounds. We walked in tiny Bampton, went into the church where Matthew and Mary married and Edith wasn't. We saw how they magically transformed the little town into something special. My only disappointment was that the kitchen--the room where so much happened--is not actually at Highclere. It's in a studio! Boo!
Highclere is only open 62 days a year. After gushing about this tour, I booked it for a friend who is going back to the UK in a couple of months. I was as excited booking this tour for her and her husband as I was when I booked mine because I know they're going to LOVE it.
Oxford was terrific! We had extra time to explore the town by ourselves. There was even a little art fair that day, which made it additionally fun. But on the same day as Highclere, it seemed to pale, by comparison.
Frank our tour guide was excellent. The bus driver did a superb job too. Tour is at your own pace at the stops.
Amazing - Awesome! Our guide and bus driver were really great. This is definitely a must-do if you watched Downtown Abbey.
