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.

This was amazing I think this was my best tour. A very comfortable coach, views of English countryside, Warwick castle was amazing with beautiful greenery and history. Stratford was a beautiful quaint town and Cotswolds were amazing. I highly recommend this tour.

The trip was everything we wanted except for one thing. We wished we had driven through some Cotswold villages, not just the countryside. Our guide was superb! Our pickup and delivery home was right on schedule. Thanks for a wonderful day!

This tour packed a lot in but didn't feel rushed at all, with time at each place to wander around and grab a coffee. Very nice. I was a bit disappointed in the Stratford stop... it was a bit commercialized and I would have appreciated a bit more there, but overall very good.

This tour allows you to see a number of things in one day. Each stop allows you a sampling of the venue and allows you to decide if a future visit is in the cards for you. Barry did a great job driving and david is a well informed professional guide. We enjoyed this trip very much. Eat in stratford!!
