Know More about this tour

After a pickup from Victoria Coach Station, travel by coach to Stratford-upon-Avon to visit the birthplace of William Shakespeare: one of the greatest writers in the English language. Take a private tour of Shakespeare's Schoolroom before it opens to the public, and enjoy a school lesson included with your tour. Then, enjoy some free time to explore the market town that’s home to the theaters of the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. A river winds its way through the town past Holy Trinity church, where Shakespeare is buried. There are half-wooden buildings which date back to Shakespeare's time, including the cottage of Anne Hathaway, who he married in 1582. After exploring, enjoy lunch in one of the town’s many cafes or restaurants (own expense).

Continue from Stratford-upon-Avon to Warwick, home to Warwick Castle. With a history dating back over 1,000 years, the castle will take you to an era of banquets, battles and royal splendor. After entering, your guide will leave you to explore independently. Listen to an introduction to the historical site from Warwick Castle’s history team, and then explore the site at leisure. See the waxwork displays from Madame Tussauds that are showcased at the castle, and see and hear of the Earl of Warwick's preparations for battle. Then, perhaps take a look at the ghostly dungeons where prisoners were tortured.

Then travel to Oxford, a city that boasts one of the world's greatest and oldest universities as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. See it all on a walking tour, and learn all about the colleges themselves, with their ivy-clad stone walls that protect the beautiful chapels, halls and libraries.

Then, simply meet your guide back on board your coach to travel back to central London.

    The tour is very good and the guide John very knowledge about everything, the time is correct and the bus confortable, the driver Martin is also very good.
    The visit to Shakespeares house and school, Warwick Castle and Oxford worth every penny spended and the day was wounderfull.
    If you like to see medieval places, this is one of the trips I recommend.
    A lot of people talk about the comercial side of Warwick castle, but all revert to conservation which make possible for us to visit

    The tour guide, David, thoroughly made this trip fun for us! Warwick Castle was a disappointment, just the Disneyland of Castles, although, Stratford upon Avon and Oxford were just beautiful! Good to do once, but not a second time!

    These were destinations that were repeat visits for us. Oxford felt quite rushed and it is not as compelling a visit as Cambridge, in our opinion. Additionally, those who wanted to see the Hogwart's dining hall at King's College were disappointed because it was closed on the day or our visit. Warwick Castle was a fun excursion since it has been augmented by life-size characters from Madame Toussad's to help make the historical events at the castle come to life. At Stratford, the group toured Shakespeare's birthplace We did not, as we have been there several times and wanted to do something else on our own. and then had time for a quick lunch. The tour guide, Derrick, was excellent and provided a great amount of informaton about all of the stops, as well as about London and the U.K. in general.

    We had a great time on this tour! Our guide and bus driver were friendly and helpful. The guide provided us with a lot of interesting and useful information which made our experience even better. Our one criticism is that the meeting sight at Victoria Coach Station was confusing and stressful. We were given a gate number with our confirmation and arrived a half hour early to find that the gate information read Paris and was filled with people and suitcases. Apparently the lines are shared with other tours and there were no signs or Viator representatives on hand to let you know that you were indeed in the right place. Eventually the destination board changed to the Harry Potter Tour and our tour was at a different gate. Maybe some clarification in the confirmation papers or someone on hand at the gate would be helpful.

    This was an amazing tour, a long day but totally worth it! The tour guide was fantastic he was so knowledgeable providing a great introduction to each site and general history along the way. I absolutely loved this tour and would highly recommend!

    I highly recommend this trip. It is well organized and our guide, Claudia, was very good. The day started at Warwick Castle which is an interesting, an very old, castle. We have just under two hours to spend there. Next was a visit to the birthplace of William Shakespeare. After an informative trip through his family home, we were given plenty of time to explore the town on our own. We arranged our own lunch there in Stratford and I enjoyed a very good lunch at a local pub. The last stop was to Christ Church, Oxford. Wonderful!!! The only negative thing of this trip is that because of the time change at this time of year, the sun went down at 4:45 so we left Oxford in the dark. Otherwise, the day was well worth it!

    This would be a great tour with any two of the destinations, but I found it too rushed with the three. Warwick Castle is beautiful, but we suffered from unfortunate timing, as the entrance to the tower was closed after the trebuchet firing until 15 minutes before our departure time. Had I known it was a choice, I would have opted for the tower over the trebuchet. Still, the latter was interesting. A few of us did run up to see the tower, but it was a hurried affair. There is much to see outside the walls as well, so don't miss it. Stratford was interesting, but I could have used more time. You have enough to see the house, but not to wander too far. Oxford was amazing, with the Hogwarts dining hall and all the different buildings, but the time was too short. Our guide provided excellent commentary, but it slowed down our pace and I would have preferred to see more, but that is just my view. I am definitely going back to Oxford on my own next time to visit more thoroughly.

    I had a great day with Irish John as our tour guide. He was a terrific wealth of knowledge. Fun and polite to all. He kept us on schedule too. Great locations I had not seen before. Loved Warwick Castle even with all the Hollywood enactments and scenes. They helped that era come alive for me.
