  • The tour is really all about the Guide as that is really what you are buying. My tour turned out to be a bi-lingual tour although it was not advertised as such, and our guide, Saul, gave his narrative in English and Spanish. I would have NOT signed up for this tour had I known it to be bi-lingual as it detracted from his narrative a great deal. And, his English was not that good so I cannot give it over two stars as it could have been better. Warwick Castle is for children and has been Disneyized. At Shakespeare's birthplace the rooms were described by children which made two parents pleased but I could not understand and would have preferred a professional description.
    The drive through the Cotswolds was lovely but how could it not be? Oxford was by far most interesting to me.

  • We have been on this Tour before 15 or so years ago and then Warwick Castle was the highlight. No longer, as the safety regulators have applied 21st Century safety logic and humanism to make sure no one trips and/or is offended by references to torture QUERY: if no one mentions torture or cramped/inhumane conditions in the Dungeon, does that mean it never occurred?. Oxford, however, retains all its glory, as does Shakespeare's birth place. Perhaps an interesting tidbit -- you will earn the origin of the phrase sleep tight on this tour. Our guide was quite informative, especially about Oxford.

  • Nice historical journey.

  • This tour gives you exactly what it says - a chance to look around at 4 different locations outside London. Be aware that some of the stops are incredibly short and it leaves you wanting more time. My advice to future travelers: don't include the lunch option with the tour, and buy yourself lunch at Warwick Castle instead. We are still 9 months later, ridiculing the lunch - it was a bottle of water and a 6 inch sub from Subway with lettuce and cucumbers - made enough in advance that the cheese had glued itself into the bread.

    My other thought - depending on your preferences, I would honestly skip Warwick Castle altogether and opt for a tour that spends more time at Stratford and Oxford - that's my preference, but do your research in advance, and see if Warwick Castle is where you want to spend a morning, as you have several hours there, and in some instances, 20 minutes at other locations.

  • A great tour of the places I wanted to see and in my case come back to. Our guide Kingsley was very good, also in telling you all the extras you want to know i.e. where the expression its raining cats and dogs comes from etc. The schedule of the tour could by my standards be a little better distributed. I would have liked more time at The Cotswolds part which I feel we flew through more or less.
    An eloge to our driver Koly. Safe driving - we felt we were in good hands the whole trip and I also observed sitting close by how well he adapted his smooth driving to the traffic around us.

  • Fantastic tour.... we were picked up at our hotel and whisked to the Victoria Coach Station. Everything was just great. Stratford upon Avon was more touresty than we would have liked, but seeing Shakespeare's birth place was awesome. The tour of Oxford was very informative. Warwick Castle was enchanting and very informative. All in all a very good adventure.

  • Warwick was nice, we were given plenty of time there abit too much, if it was to compared with other places. Wished i could spend more time in Stratford and Oxford. Did not have time to even go into the buildings in Oxford this was our last stop before heading back to London. I would recommend doing it not as a tour to be able to have enough time in each place. Was denied lunch pack because I booked it too late, but they never advise prior to booking or even at the start of tour, if not I could have booked another tour that was slightly cheaper without lunch included,or even get my own food, so yeah i was very hungry while others were eating.

  • My day trip to Stratford through the Cotswolds to Oxford and Warwick Castle a great day out packed with sites. The very informative and experienced guide gave an insight into the educational and personal life of the students and village of Oxford as will as the life and times of William Shakespeare and the aristocracy. I've been on trips where the guide is like reading from a script, a tourist themselves and you end up turning off not listening but when a local is sharing the love and passion they have for where they live it changes the experience for the tourist. My only complaint was the soggy lettuce roll that was lunch, picnic lunch saves time just make it edible.

  • It was a long day with lots of driving. We walked around Warwick castle first. It is a nice example of you have never seen one, with the fairy tale designs with towers, moat, etc but it is a little cheesy in having people in renaissance garb and gift shops etc. Stratford includes Shakespeare's house, two stories, not too big, with a small museum. The street has lovely shops. We then got our included lunch box -- a sandwich from Subway. No meat, just their white cheese, lettuce and tomato on white bread. No mayo, mustard, nothing. I guess there are people with all variety of food issues on the tours, but that was ridiculous. Finally we went to Oxford where we were guided around three blocks in a circle, not going in to any buildings, ending with a highly recommended shop must be getting a kickback is my guess. They were all good places to visit but if you have just a few days in England this might not be a good way to spend it.

  • The bus was in great condition is the best we can say about the trip

    The tour is a bit misrepresented .. this tour merely drives through the Cotswolds and does not allow any direct experience

    Warwick Castle was great but given too much time, Stratford-on-Avon was brilliant but could do with an hour more, Oxford was hurried and utterly short without any opportunity to even have a look at the oldest U B and M colleges or even spend time at the famous Bodleian Library.

    The tour needs to be seriously replanned - perhaps reversed in the sequence .. starting with Oxford, early lunch at an inn in Cotswolds, then on to Stratford-on-Avon and closing out at Warwick Castle before turning back towards London

    Now to the really bad .. the lunch pack provided was yuck .. never seen a Subway sandwich with only lettuce before. Similarly, Andrew, our guide was quite quite bad. Extremely knowledgeable but extremely opinionated AND vain in his opinion of himself AND extremely garrulous.

    In all .. a rather disappointing tour but one which had HUGE possibilities

    Also, the name of the tour needs a change
