Really great day trip highly recommend. Has something for everyone. Oxford is an interesting town as well
Evan Evans guide Monica and Steve ( bus driver) were both very professional and prompt . Especially Monica’s knowledge ! Bravi!
This was an excellent day-long bus tour to the Midlands. Warwick Castle is an eye opener as a genuine Norman castle. Stratford upon Avon us a delight and the focus on Shakespeare is both interesting and enlightening. Oxford is always a treat. The guide was both informative, interesting and very approachable. An accommodating driver added to the experience. A very worthwhile tour.
A great day in the English countryside with a well informed guide and experienced coach driver. The visit to Warwick castle was good. Great history. Oxford was good and the fact that the guide was a native was a treat. The Cotswalds were beautiful even on a dreary winter day.
Very good tour.
The day trip from London was a perfect combination of famous student city, nature, history and castle-building! With open eyes and ears I learnt a lot and got detailed answers to my questions; both the guide and the driver were really great and should earn 5 scores!
What an amazing day! From the bus ride which was beautiful to the tour guide who was entertaining and knowledgeable we loved it all! Warwick Castle was fun to explore and Stratford-upon-Avon was an adorable little town! Being in Shakespeare's birthplace was amazing! We loved driving through the gorgeous Cotswolds and Oxford was a great place to visit - so rich in history!
My husband and I took this tour on 12/7. It was very thorough and Monica our tour guide, and Paul, our driver were excellent. Long day but Monica never lost her enthusiasm.
My son and I enjoyed the trip very much, especially the visit to Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon.
This was a relatively small group of people. The guide and driver were very friendly and professional and the sites visited were very nice.
I felt the timing for visiting the places was poorly calculated.
We had plenty of time to explore Warwick Castle, to the extent that people gathered by the bus waiting for departure far in advance. However in Oxford i felt being hurried and we had maybe half an hour to explore.
Also, my headset was broken and the tour guide failed to replace it. Wgen I approached her to give it back, she said she was not to carry everyone's headsets.
On the bus on the way home the said tour guide went on a political rant about Boris Johnson being an idiot.
I didn't come to a political rally. I traveled from the US to visit English countryside.
That behavior of your tour guides is not acceptable.
Discover over a thousand years of history at one of England’s most beautiful medieval castles before visiting the picturesque town of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Finally, head off to explore the historic city of Oxford on a walking tour of the city with your expert guide.
