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.
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 will cut out the Cotswold from this tour. Although the Cotswolds is beautiful, it makes the tour too long and one does not really experience anything there.
Excellent overall experience. Coach was on time at pick up point and we left the meeting station on time. Tour guide was great - lots of history and humour on the bus. Dont expect to stay in the Cotswolds for long, its more just a drive through but you get more than enough time in Startford and Oxford to explore on your own time! I would definitely recommend Anderson tours and would use them again in the future.
Did not get to see much of the Cotswold villages. Just a brief stop for a couple of pictures and we were off to the next destination. Oxford is beautiful and Stratford is a nice town to stroll along.
I would give this tour 3-1/2 stars because the sites are wonderful. My family of 2 adults and an 11 y/o went on this tour in June 2016. The pick-up process was disorganized, leaving some of the other customers annoyed and complaining. The guide and driver had trouble working the AC and window de-fog on the bus, but they did have a working emergency toilet for 1 only. My family loved Stratford where the tour included entrance into Shakespeare's childhood home, we walked to his grave site and church, and took in the historic buildings with cobbled-stoned streets. Our stop in the Costwolds was in a shopping square of historic buildings for 5-10 mins, which left you with no time to shop, eat or really do anything except stand in the rain. It was also raining when we arrived at Oxford and our tour guide gave us brief directions from the bus where some restaurants were and bathrooms in a museum. There was NO guided tour through Oxford included maybe because it was poring down raining. Even so, we LOVED Oxford. We ate at The Eagle and Child pub excellent food! known for 2 famous authors dining there walked the historic streets and did a little tourist shopping since time was short. My family really enjoyed this tour although, it seemed to be jinxed from the beggining. We enjoyed the rain, but I think it delayed our travel between sites on a quirky bus, giving us less time to enjoy the destinations, and making our tour guide less willing to actually complete the description of the tour we paid for.
The tour was okay. We started out late due to mismanagement of buses. Instead of taking us to Oxford first, Oxfords was kept for last. So, we missed many colleges and churches from inside. They gave us just 5 mins in Cotswolds which was too less. The tour guide did not tell us much about the history of the places. Tour could have been better planned.
Anderson Tour let us down big time: they did not come to pick us up at the meeting place letting us wait in the rain for hours! Ridiculous!
