Buildings are beautiful in Oxford. If you love Shakespeare and history this is the place to visit.
We loved our small tour group, which traveled in a comfortable, convenient van. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a great personality. The smaller size of our van allowed us to get close to the cottages in the Cotswolds and depart the bus for a stroll around the beautiful area and a bit of shopping. Our experience in walking around the Cotswolds was a highlight of our entire trip. The passengers on larger buses were prevented from departing the buses in the Cotswolds because the roads are so small and cant handle large vehicles. We enjoyed our visit to Stratford as well. We saw so much in a single day that we were quite amazed.
The trip was excellent and the diver/tour guide was wonderful. Private Group is the way to go-only 7 people in our group.
First we went to Stratford-upon-Avon to see Shakespeares birth place. Walked through the house, got some great pictures. We had free time to check out the Main Street where I did some Christmas shopping. Then we headed to The Cotswolds- beautiful and scenic drive with lots of sightseeing and history along the way. Stopped in a tiny town called Stow-on-the-Wold for lunch at a pub founded in 947. We only had an hour here- wish we would have had more time! Lunch at the pub took the entire hour. More scenic driving- then arrived at Oxford. Had a local tour guide for this part- he was very knowledgeable. Walked all over, lots of great history and beautiful buildings.
I definitely recommend this tour and will definitely book with them again.
A lot to see and a lot to learn. Well worth it. The only issue is that we do not have a lot of time for Cotswold but you can take another tour to Cotwold if you want. You can get an idea but this tour does not spend a lot of time. The visit to Staratford upon Avon and Oxford is very nice.
Great having a small group - we only had 9 people for a 18 person tour. The bus was very comfortable. Our guide was great - great source of information. Loved Oxford, Cotswolds and Stratford upon Avon. Totally worth it.
Great tour. I'm so glad we booked this small group tour. Jorge sp? was our driver and guide. The pick-up location was easy to find and he found us! He was very knowledgeable and very funny. When we arrived at Oxford, he turned us over to local guide, Debbie who was equally terrific. She showed us many Harry Potter movie location sites. Both guides took very good care of us, answering all our questions and giving suggestions.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day.
The tour guide / driver was excellent. Full of knowledge and sprinkled with humour.
A good day trip to give a good overview of the Cotswolds. Which is now officially one of my favourite places. Stratford on Avon was as expected, Shakespearian, very interesting as the history of such a world famous playwright deserves to be. And Oxford! I loved Oxford! absolutely going back there for at least a week and just walking and exploring! Walking around those beautiful buildings, it was awesome. To remember those magnificent buildings were built so long ago when it was literally hard work. Wow!
Wonderful trip. Tony the guide/driver was hilarious. Teen daughters enjoyed his humor. Glad to ride in a van versus big bus for this tour. As always, wished for more time at all stops, but this tour provides a nice, concise overview of the areas since most tourists are on a limited time schedule. Highly recommend.
This tour was a lot of fun and highly organized. Our guides, Preston at the wheel and Debbie were excellent. They made the day very pleasant and relaxed, and were both very knowledgeable. It felt like we were being shown around by family! Debbie, being a native of the area, shared a lot of interesting facts and stories. The itinerary was well-designed, everything ran smoothly, the pacing felt appropriate, and the small group format was nice. This was our first time to London/England and the tour was a nice way to experience a bit of the English countryside and also deeply historical/cultural sites. I highly recommend it and would do it again the next time we return to this part of the world.
