Great tour. Tour guide Emily was awesome, very knowledgeable on the subject and explained the sights , history and context very well.
The entire tour was arranged very well from hotel pick up to drop off location. Highly recommend this tour.
This was an awesome day. Especially loved Oxford and Warwick Castle.
Absolutely brilliant a great guide very informative and pleasant the driver was great and trip was brilliant a great day would have loved to spend more time in Warwick Castle but save for next time
Fantastic. Our tour guide Charlotte was extremely knowledgeable and very informative. She gave a superior tour of Oxford University. Everything I was expecting.
Tour was great, could have used more time in Oxford and Warwick castle. Salvatore our guide was very knowledgeable.
I booked this last minute after another company cancelled out on me. It turned out be a great tour.
Great day trip to see historic England. Oxford is a must-see for it's history and beautiful college setting. After a drive thru the Cotswolds, stop-over in Avon to see William Shakespeare's home, which is very interesting, and Warwick Castle is straight out of Medieval times.
This tour was so informative and our tour guide and driver were amazing. Stratford is a lovely community. In fact Shakespeare's home is nice to visit but the town itself is gorgeous and the people are so friendly. I could live there. Warwick Castle appears as it probably did 300 years ago or so. The furniture and the decor are mostly original and the layout is designed to keep you fully engaged. The grounds of the castle are well maintained and it is as if you have taken a step back in time. Oxford University was nice. They filmed some of the Harry Potter movies there and people in our group seemed very interested in that. But my family really were interested in the institution itself as the history of that University is so important to the history of England that we felt as if we were walking on hallowed ground. Beautiful buildings and lovely history. Overall, The instructions and arrangements that Viator made took all of the worry out of our hands and we had to do nothing but sit back and enjoy. Very well done.
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.
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!
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!
A very informative and enjoyable one-day trip that highlighted the beauty of the Cotswolds plus visits to Oxford, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle. Although we could easily have spent more than a day at each location, our guide Reece made certain that we would get the most out of each stop by providing an excellent background narrative. Kudos to Reece for an outstanding tour!
I was in London for a business trip and for that reason, I only had two full days to devote to sightseeing and touring. I was also alone for reviewers that might be travelling solo. I am SO glad that I decided to devote one of those days to this tour. Reese was our guide and he was exceptional - funny, kind, helpful and so knowledgeable. Michelangelo was our driver and it was all smooth sailing. I wish we had more time at Oxford and in Stratford-Upon-Avon, but alas, I understand the need to keep things shorter so you can do more. That is the only suggestion I would make is to start the tour earlier and perhaps make it an hour later for more time at those locations. The amount of time allotted for Warwick Castle was enough - in my opinion. Such a wonderful experience. Thank you Reese and Michelangelo!
This was a lovely tour. I wish we had more time at each stop but the itinerary was a tall order. Nonetheless, it was well executed and well enjoyed! Highly recommended for those who are just wanting to sample England but don't have much time.
The tour was amazing! It was only too short! Especially for Oxford! Stratford and Oxford would be enough! Still Warwick Castle was nice to see and our driver and guide was really nice too
