  • A small group tour is the only way to go. Our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting, the whole day was very enjoyable.

  • This was a terrific tour. Our driver Tony was amazing at zipping us out of the city even in a crazy traffic day. Our guide Ray was excellent. He was funny and informative, and had lots of insights based on his own experience working as a small part of the cast of Downton Abbey. Visiting Highclere Castle was a major highlight of our trip - incredibly immersive and really exciting. We highly recommend this trip and this tour!

  • This was the highlight of our time in London. There were only 4 of us and it felt like a private tour during the long ride out and in the village. The van was comfortable and they had water for us. The driver and guide talked to us all the way out about the castle and the village. Once we got to the castle there were plenty of others but we were earlier than the after noon crowds. The guide explained how the village was used in the series and had pictures of scenes before and during the shooting. We had plenty of time on our own to walk around the village.

  • Our small group tour to Downton Abbey and real village of Bampton was SUPERB! Our guide was personally familiar with Bampton, as he had lived nearby. He was excellent -knowledgeable of area and all that is Downton -script, plot and actors. Our group of 3 couples, guide and driver enjoyed reliving Downton Abbey video played as we traveled and fun game of trivia. Thank you so much for a memorable day.

  • Great tour, knowledgeable guide. Plenty of time to walk around Bampton and explore the inside of Highclere, some of the grounds and grab a bite to eat. Egyptian exhibit was not included in this package. Glad we booked this one. Not to miss if you are a fan of the show or the property and #39;s history.
