This tour was amazing! Our guide, Christina, was so knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience!

It was raining on the day of our tour but that did not dampen the spirits of our tour guide Christina. She did an excellent job giving us the stories behind each college in Oxford and answered all our questions. She was pleasant, funny and well informed. We also enjoyed Startford upon Avon visiting Shakespeare's birth house and the little villages in Cotswold.

This was a charming trip in every way, except for the timing. My companion and I are huge Shakespeare fans and we needed more time in Stratford. But the things we wanted to see were just too spread out to reach all of them.We might have been better off doing a separate trip to Stratford. Otherwise, this trip to the Midlands was a pleasant journey outside the city, giving us a taste of the English countryside. Oxford lived up to the imagination as the classic university town and the thatched cottages of the Cotswolds tickled the imagination. Its a tour that recreated many a literary landscape for myself and my companion, particularly since both of us are or have been English teachers.

My family and I had a great time on this tour. Our tour guide Stacey was friendly and knowledgeable, the country side was beautiful and we where able to make some unscheduled stops along the way for pictures and site seeing.

My tour guide is Kristina. She is very knowledgeable and responsive. We were lucky to have a super small size group tour, only 4 people. Kristina was very nice to accommodate our requests. We changed the schedule slightly to have more time in Cotswold, which is absolutely beautiful. I could not believe that I could learn that much about England from just a one-day tour.

Great trip. All was nicely organized. Thank you Neil.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

A very enjoyable tour and our guide, Stacie, was absolutely fantastic! Not the fault of the tour company, just a general heads-up: be prepared to get stuck in traffic for 1 - 3 hours on the way home!

I had fun on the tour! Stratford was amazing, and the stop at Cotswold was lovely. I found Oxford interesting as well, but not as enjoyable. If I had to make a tiny tweak to the itinerary, I'd spend maybe an extra half hour at Stratford and make up for it by spending slightly less time in Oxford.

We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable on the areas we stopped at. The size of the group was great and the transportation was very accommodating.
