After enriching your literary knowledge, return to the coach and travel to Oxford, a blissfully beautiful city replete with grand university buildings and charming waterways. Discover which prominent intellectual figures attended the prestigious Oxford University and then embark on a tour of the city’s cobbled streets and picture-perfect college courtyards.

Finally, admire the abundance of natural beauty in the Cotswolds, a region replete with rolling hills and quintessential English villages. Listen to legends and legacies surrounding the area's rich heritage and then relax during the return journey to London, where the tour concludes.

Warwick Castle

Over a thousand years of history are waiting to be discovered at this fantastic medieval castle. Set against the River Avon within 64 acres of landscaped parkland, this beautiful castle once belonged to the most powerful man in England, The Earl of Warwick. Learn how the 'Kingmaker' was the only man who dared defy the King, and how he defeated the armies of King Edward IV in battle before taking the King himself as a prisoner. Explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons. In the castle's 14th-century gaol, the original dungeon, see graffiti left behind by prisoners hundreds of years ago. How many names can you spot?

My son and I loved the tour. Totally worth it. It is a must visit when you are in UK. The coach was comfortable and I must mention about the guide and the driver who were wonderful throughout the tour.

I just loved the tour guide. She was so active and had enough knowledge about the places. I just wish if you could have stopped at cotswold for few minutes just for pictures. Overall it was good.

Our guide Rowan? was very knowledgeable and you could tell she loves her job. She glows with excitement.
Okay but not amazing
Stephanie_P, Jul 2019
The tour was quite rushed and it doesn't actually stop through the Cotswolds like I expected. You just drive through a small section of it and don't really get to see much of it at all. The tour guide was lovely but for the few hours that you do spend it certain cities, it's not well organised. Normally a fan of organised day trips but this one was a bit of a letdown for me.
Misleading Title!!
Cynthia_W, Jun 2019
I enjoyed visiting the sites at Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon. However, I am very disappointed the coach that there was no stop, only drove through the Cotswolds (I finally found that it has mentioned very subtle on the tour itinerary). I may suggest the tour organiser should delete it as to avoid any misunderstanding. Finally the tour guide spent very long time for each site in Oxford, perhaps she needed to take care of two languages in a tour.
Experience about the tour
TAPAS_G, Jun 2019
To be specific - Time allowed for every tourist place Is enough. Bus is very comfortabl. Mr.Guide is Good , witty and comfortabl. But,Cotswold village is not at all seen or felt by me,which i have wished for as pet the itinerar. Overall goo.
