Great tour and bus driver and guide thoughtful enough to drop us off at our Westminster located hotel before heading back to Victory station. Both locations excellent
A well conducted tour with a very clear and knowledgeable travel guide.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Frank was fabulous. We learned so much about the London area in addition to the areas visited. It was fun and informative. We would highly recommend it!
Great tour of Oxford, Bampton and Highclere. Our tour guide, Frank, was extremely knowledgeable, nice and helpful. We even got bonus facts about London/surrounding areas on the way to Oxford. Loved seeing all the filming locations for Downton in addition to the city of Oxford - highly recommend this tour!

My Day trip was everything I had hoped for and more. Each stop we had amble time, which was something that I was worried about because I have been on other tours that you are kinda rushed through. Oxford was wonderful and we were shown all the major sites with lots of time to explore each of them more in depth. Bampton was a nice little stop to get you in the downton mood. But Highclere, well it was just breath taking, I could hear the characters talk to me as I wondered through the rooms, and the grounds are magnificent. LOVED IT..
Very informative guides and some time left at each location for personal exploration were pluses. The tour is a must for anyone who loved the Downton Abbey TV series.
Loved Oxford and Downton Abbey. Magical experience. Buses weren't super comfortable and wish we had more time at Oxford and less at other stops.
Had a magical day! So cool to be here in person. We had goosebumps.
In the negative side, catching the bus was quite confusing....too many tours and people. I also think you need more time in Oxford. Only had time for Christ church and grabbed a sandwich? There is so much more to see.
Oh me oh my! Worth every penny. Our bus driver, Steve, was friendly, punctual, and a safe driver. His partner, our tour guide, was a blond headed Mary Poppins. We adored her spunky personality, depth of knowledge, and ability to keep 75 tourist happy and on time! Well worth the money. Accurately advertised. Not suprised, Viator does not disappoint.
Great experience! Bus was nice and comfortable, guide was great, transported us efficiently to Oxford and Highclere. We had a problem with air conditioning on the bus which was fixed quickly. Overall, great experience.
Very exciting tour. The guide and the driver were great, they really cared we had pleasant experience during this tour. We received sufficient info and we even had a short walking tour in Oxford. The castle is fantastic. It's pity we were not allowed to take photos in the castle
We had a great time on this tour. The tour was well paced, with restroom stop and 1.5 to 2 hours of free time to explore each stop on our ownOxford, Bampton aka Downton, and Highclere Castle aka Downton Abbey. Julie, our tour guide, is a Downton Abbey enthusiast herself and pointed out landmarks and attractions along the way. In Oxford, she led a 25-minute tour to orient us to the city. In Bampton, she called ahead and got the local volunteer to open up the souvenir shop in the Downton Village Hospital on a Sunday. To get there, we traveled on a double-deck bus from the Premium Tour - spacious seats, with Wifi on board, and a smooth drive all the way minimal traffic on a Sunday, even in London. The driver, Martin, is very friendly and professional. At the end, we each got a signed copy of a book by the current Lady Carnarvon.
This was one of the highlights of our trip and mostly due to the efficient way everything was handled from hotel pick up to drop off as close as possible to our hotel. The tour guide was wonderful. Very informative and kept things and people on time. Really a great tour and would highly recommend to anyone interested. Would always look into tours with Viator first in our future travels.
If you can only take one tour this year, TAKE THIS TOUR!! If you are a true Downton Abbey fan, this tour is NOT to be missed! Visiting Bampton Village is a MUST for all Downton fans. The village appears just as it does on the show. It was such a treat to be able to visit the village. Arriving at the Castle, I could almost hear the theme song in my head! The tour of the house is spectacular! You can revisit the house as many times as you wish! Be sure to allot extra time for return to London. We inadvertently booked tickets on the Eurostar upon our return to London and made it with just 2 minutes to spare. This tour runs late, primarily due to traffic returning to London. It is difficult to ensure prompt return times.
Lucy, our tour guide was awesome, entertaining, fun and very knowledgable!
The trip was great, as was the guide and the bus driver. It was just a very long day for us. We were heading to the airport the next morning and didn't know we could have taken our luggage from the Glocester Hotel with us and used a taxi to get us to the airport hotel. That was a nice service but we didn't know that was possible. I have no complaints about the trip.
Lucy, our guide, was very perky and informative. She made the entire trip very enjoyable and added context to whatever we were seeing. Highly recommend this tour
I must tell you , this was truly a splendid experience...the visit itself was amazing and our tour guide was both informative and enthusiastic....I would return in a heart beat...thanks for helping to build beautiful memories!!!
This was an excellent tour. A lot to see in just a day without being too much!
Highclere Castle is the last and best stop, very impressive and it was a day very well spent not just for Downton Abbey fans....
I loved being at Highclere Castle and the grounds are beautiful. I also enjoyed Oxford
Very happy. The carpark at Highclere Castle had flooded due to bad storms and the public could not buy tickets. The viator tour was still admitted. I could have easily missed the visit I had travelled to London for. Guide was lovely. Oxford stop was longer than I expected - great place.
Our tour guide was wonderfull! We loved the tour! We had plenty of time in all locations.
