Pass By: University of Oxford, University Offices 1 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD England
The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. There is evidence of teaching as early as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation. It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. The two 'ancient universities' are frequently jointly called 'Oxbridge'. The history and influence of the University of Oxford has made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

It was an excellent trip made better by the knowledge and sense of humour of the guide. The pre-boarding procedures were professional and efficient.. A lot was seen in one day and yet the pace was relaxed. Would definitely recommend doing the tour.
Trip was great. Saw 3 wonderful sit in one day. Wish we could have spent more time in each place, but if you want to get the flavor of each this is the trip to do.
A wonderful trip first to Warwick Castle, a piece of history set in lovely grounds, then off to everything Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon a charming town. next onto Oxford through the cotswold countryside, a great day mad better by knowledgeable and helpf.ul Emily
Our tour guide Emily was the sweetest, she was so helpful and kind and even had a great sense of humor. Our driver Tom was awesome, we definitely felt safe through the whole tour bus ride. The architecture you see on this trip is jaw-droppingly beautiful. You definitely get a nice taste of each location for the day trip!
Not only did I pick the lovelest tour out of London but the company had great people that made the whole difference. Debra was incredible. The facts and she told were great.she took great care of us along with the bus driver. They made it a special day
Our guide, Katya, was incredible. Her knowledge of the intricate British history was profound. As former professional guides and tour company owners my wife and I were greatly impressed. Her driver navigated the countryside and motorways with professional skills second to none. Evan Evans should be proud to have such professionals in their employ.
Warmest regards to all.

Brunswick Tours and Cruises
This was a relatively small group of people. The guide and driver were very friendly and professional and the sites visited were very nice.
Great things to see but not nearly enough time to see actually spend time there. You barely get 1 1/2 hours to visit each location. By the time you walk to the site, get admitted and begin wandering around, it was time to leave. No time to really to the see the town just the basic attraction (i.e. Shakesphere’s birth place home but not where he is buried which was a ten minute walk in the opposite direction). Warwick Castle was barely enough time to see the inside of the castle much less the castle’s grounds or wall). BRING A SANDWICH. There isn’t any allotted time for eating. Oxford was beautiful but not enough time to see Oxford and Christ’s Church. This should be broken down into TWO location visits.
Despite the rain which fell all day this tour was educational and informative. Leslie our tour guide, and our driver, Michael angelo both deserve praise for their professionalism.
We got stranded in Oxford and had to wait more than 2 hours for our bus to arrive because Bus had mechanical problems.
