Brilliant tour of some of the country's most famous sights. You see grand old Warwick Castle, Shakespeare's birthplace and the prestigious university colleges at Oxford.
I highly recommend this trip. It is well organized and our guide, Claudia, was very good. The day started at Warwick Castle which is an interesting, an very old, castle. We have just under two hours to spend there. Next was a visit to the birthplace of William Shakespeare. After an informative trip through his family home, we were given plenty of time to explore the town on our own. We arranged our own lunch there in Stratford and I enjoyed a very good lunch at a local pub. The last stop was to Christ Church, Oxford. Wonderful!!! The only negative thing of this trip is that because of the time change at this time of year, the sun went down at 4:45 so we left Oxford in the dark. Otherwise, the day was well worth it!
Tour Guide well prepared and a Good Daytrip Tour
Very impressed and highly recommend! Guide was great, very interesting and fun. We learned a lot of interesting things. We had enough time at each location to see it. Loved Warwick Castle, Oxford and Stator Upon Avon. Bus very nice and comfortable too.
This tour was very nice - however be warned that the day starts off stressfully at Victoria Coach Station. However, once you're on the tour bus, you can sit back and relax. The tour guide we had was very informative and told us about each stop before we got there. It is a whistle stop tour, so you don't get much time at each location. We quickly made our way through Warwick Castle and ran back to the bus before heading off to Stratford-upon-Avon. We we're excited about this stop, but it was a disappointment. The Shakespeare museum was so packed wall-to-wall people that it didn't feel safe. It would have been nice to go see some other sites off the beaten track, like Anne Hathaway's house. The star of the show was Oxford. We enjoyed this tour so much, we want to go back and spend more time. Make sure you do Christ Church Oxford, because that made the entire tour worthwhile. Several people on tour who didn't select the option wanted to add it at that time, but weren't able to. We also got to skip the line and we made it in before the masses, which was nice. If you're a fan of Harry Potter, you will love this place. Parts of the movie we're actually filmed here and it was just a beautiful place to visit.
My guide was very knowledgable and went all the way to keep us informed and happy.
Great tour! Even though it is a full day tour, could use an extra half hour at each location to explore a little more.
Great guide! Even in the rain a wonderful day.
This was the best. We did several day trips and this was one of our favorites. We could have used about 30 more minutes at each stop....it was just a touch rushed along with in spite of that we would do it again.
Trip was very good. Our tour coach was a knowledgeable person as well as very funny. Tea at Warwick castle was a cherry on top. However, timing to roam around in Oxford was very limited. Apart from it, I was also expecting to see some of the locations of Harry Potter movie scenes in this tour at Oxford but failed due to time shortage and non-inclusion of those colleges in this tour. Still, I would highly recommend this tour for 1st timer in UK.
The trip was amazing! Lucy the tour guide and Malcolm the driver did excellent job.
