Beautiful locations, excellent tourguide
The tour is a lot in one. The Cotswolds is not toured out of the bus you pass through the area and experience the history from the tour guides information over the radio system in the bus. The Stratford town is cozy and you have time to walk and take in Shakespeares town for about an hour and the Warwick Castle is way kool there is a Bird show with Eagles, and other majestic birds. The castle is a wonderful tour to do. I recommend taking your own time to go around don't join a guided tour there isn't enough time. Other than that it is a lot to cover in one day and they do it well.
Good tour, quite informative, and everything as advertised. Tony the guide was great.
Warwick Castle was beautiful and we lucked out by having a sunny, blue sky morning so great pictures. Stratford was great and having admission to enter the Shakespeare Museum and his home was cool. I was not impressed with Oxford as the university is comprised of 19 different schools, not just one campus. Regarding the Cotswolds, unless I feel asleep on the motor coach I missed it as we seemed to have just driven through it as we only stopped and got off three times at Warwick, Stratford, and Oxford. Also had ample time to walk around and sufficient time to explore at all the stops.
Overall I like the tour because I enjoy being a tourist and taking part of tours with a guide. The guide was funny though may seem rude to some as he would shush people when he was talking, saying they would miss what he was explaining - lol. Additionally, wasn't thrilled with the packed lunch being a Subway meatless sub which just consisted of lettuce and cheese.
Really enjoyed our trip. Our group leader was in his 70s but so spry and knowledgeable and with a great sense of humor. Be aware that trip from London to Warwick Castle is about 2.5 hours. One thing I would change is to spend more time at Warwick Castle we only had one hour and could have used two or three and less time at Oxford we had over two hours. Just about the right amount of time in Stratford to see Shakespeare's birthplace and do do a little shopping, but town had so much more to offer. As for Cotswolds, well, don't expect to stop as all you'll see of them is while you drive through the countryside. It was sort of the Whitman's Sampler of tours, giving you a taste but leaving you wanting more. Which I guess is sort of at the heart of every tour.
Was a very informative and interesting tour. We were not able to tour Oxford University where Harry Potter was filmed and were not informed until the day off. That is the only reason for not all 5 stars.

Warwick was really interesting to visit! Lots of history and very engaging. Oxford is good to visit. The rest of the tour was lukewarm.
I THOUGHT THEY TRIED TO MAKE IT LIKE DISNEY WORLD
