Trip as described. Got a taste of all the areas we visited. Tour Guide Reese was very knowledgeable, witty, and kept us on schedule. Would definitely recommend to first time visitors to England as a way to experience multiple areas in one day.

Great tour. Would recommend this to anyone. Carrick Castle was truly breathtaking.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Such a lovely day! Started our day with the beautiful medieval Warwick Castle. Dating back to 1066 and built by William the Conqueror this castle lived up to all of my fairy tale dreams. Next stop was Stratford-upon-Avon for a tour of William Shakespeare's birth home. You get to see the pretty cottage he grew up in and the room in which he was born. Step right outside of his home and into a quaint downtown for a quick bite before boarding the bus to Oxford. Oxford is a stunning university town and made me feel as if I'd stepped into the pages of Harry Potter. A magical day all around thanks in large part to our amazing guide Rhys who is such a wealth of knowledge on everything Shakespeare and English history......we learned so much! FUN and FASCINATING!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This was an excellent day trip to the above named areas. Perhaps the only small disappointment was that there was not enough time to stop in a village in the Cotswolds to have a look but overall our guide was excellent and provided informative and entertaining commentary. A good way to see these places in a short time.
