Our tour guide, Debbie, was a delight! She was brilliant in describing what went on not only with the Downton Abbey filming but also what it was like in the day...fascinating. The Bleinheim Palace is worth going to...off season is better...less people. We went in Sept/Oct. and we loved it. Flowers still in bloom and very few tourists.
Andrew our guide was the most energetic that we met on the tour, Very helpful, and very involved. The Cotswolds is not an area one should miss while in UK.
It was a very nice day out in the Cotswolds. Our guide was friendly and knowledgable and also a fan of the show which helped! My only complaint was that this tour advertisement should have been more clear that this tour didn't actually go to Highclere Castle. I might not have spent so much money for a tour, even for a nice day out, had I known.
I didn't watch much of Downton Abbey but still the Cotswold towns and country, and Blenheim Palace.
First the ad said that there were no pick-ups from London hotels, After we had spent 107 pounds on train fare to Oxford, missed prepaid breakfast at our hotel and arrived at the London station at 6AM'we found out that a couple on the same tour were staying at our hotel in London and were picked up there and delivered back. Additionally, the tour seemed to have little to do with Downton Abbey. We spent little time in the Cotswolds and a lot of time at Blenheim where any meaningful tour was blighted by the lack of a guide and the distracting "art" of Wei Wei. This was the most expensive tour we took while in England and Scotland and the most disappointing.
