Pass by The Cotswolds on this full-day tour from London

Depart from your central London hotel or Victoria Coach Station, and then travel by luxury coach to the famous city of Oxford, known as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires.’ 

On arrival, plug into your provided headset to help you hear your guide’s commentary, and set off on foot to explore time city. See the ivy-strewn, honey-hued university buildings that have inspired generation upon generation of scholars, including the likes of Kate Beckinsale and Bill Clinton. Visit Bodleian Library and the famous Christ Church College, which was featured in several Harry Potter movies.

After a break for food (own expense), continue through the beautiful Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and drink in views of thatched-roof villages as you travel to Stratford-upon-Avon. Here, visit William Shakespeare’s Tudor-ear home and make the most of free time to explore independently or have lunch (own expense).

Your final stop of the day is at Warwick Castle, which dates back to the Middle Ages. See its magnificent ramparts and towers; climb the staircase to the Princess Tower; or head down into the dungeons where prisoners were tortured. You can also stroll through the gardens, where falconry, jousting and archery take place in the summer.

Your tour concludes in the evening with a drop-off at Victoria Coach Station.

It was a really long day, but well worth it! Our guide was terrific and our driver got us safely to and from each location safely and securely. All sites were must see experiences. The only negative is that there was no bathroom on the bus and since the ride home back to the city of London is so long, I felt uncomfortable not having access to a bathroom.

Loved this tour! Tony was the best tour guide we have ever had. The trip was amazing and we learned so much on history too. Tony is passionate about history and knows his history well. It didn't feel rushed. Was about the right amount of time and the day flew by.

Enjoyed this tour. Loved Stratford and Shakespeare's home.

David was such a well-informed guide, at times I felt he was a professor, who's updated in current affairs, history, literature, art and architecture! The fact that it was live commentary made it more interesting. The tour itself was comfortable, started on time, the bus was clean. Basically, it lived up to every promise!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Our tour was very enjoyable and efficiently and professionally managed. Our tour guide, Rhys, was very knowledgable about the locations we visited and was able to offer historical background about Shakespeare, the Wars of the Roses, and the different colleges of Oxford, which helped make the drives between the different locations entertaining. The bus was comfortable, our driver, Barry, made very good time, and cold water was available for a pound onboard. You do have to keep an eye on the clock, though--your time at each location is limited.

This tour was amazing and the sights were fantastic! Reese was my tour guide and he was quite knowledgeable as well as an actor on his stage! Would highly recommend and I loved the whole day! Wish it was longer!

Great tour guide and driver. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a tour of London as we were heading out. All sites were interesting, although you should be aware that you only have about 1 1/2 hours in each place -- that's really all the time you have in one day for all of these places. If you want more time, you should book a tour to each separately. Still, the day was quite enjoyable and I learned so much!
