Leave the hustle and bustle of London behind for two lovely days in the picturesque English countryside. This two-day tour takes you to the Cotswolds, Bath and Oxford.

Day 1:
Your first destination is Wiltshire, a rural county of small villages and scenic landscapes, perfect for a relaxing day in the country. Visit the three stone circles of Avebury, the lesser-known sister of Stonehenge. Stop by the Marlborough White Horse, which is a hill figure, cut in the ground in 1804 by school pupils and the Abbey house, which was once home to the Talbot family. Then head to the village of Lacock, the setting for many TV and film productions, including Pride and Prejudice and the Harry Potter films.

Your guide will then take you to the city of Bath, famous for its Georgian architecture, where you will see the city’s renowned Roman Baths. You'll have enough free time there to explore the town and grab lunch. (at owns expense) Take a deep breath of the hot steam and feel a bit like the Romans felt 2000 years ago.

Your first day ends in Cirencester, a small market town in the heart of the Cotswolds, where you’ll stay the night in your choice of either a 3-star bed and breakfast or 3-star hotel. Your guide will recommend you some local restaurants, where you can enjoy your dinner (at own expense).

Day 2:
After breakfast (included), explore more of the Cotswolds. Visit Bourton-on-the-Water, the so-called ‘Venice of Cotswolds’; Stow-on-the Wold, a small market town; and Woodstock, home to the magnificent Blenheim Palace, which you’ll admire from the outside. (only exterior visit)

Last but not least, make your way to Oxford and discover the charming college courtyards and winding alleys. Harry Potter fans may recognize a few places used in the films!

Head back to London with a new appreciation for the English countryside.

    The tour with Steve, our guide/driver, was everything we hoped for. The Ivy House in Cirencester definitely gets 5 stars. The only suggestion would be to shorten the time in Bath or Oxford to allow for an hour in Cirencester, a true Cotswold town, when it is open. Unfortunately, we arrived around 6PM and left at 9AM the next day. Bath and Oxford are so crowded and full of chain store shops.

    This was our first trip to the UK and this tour was the perfect way to see the beautiful English countryside over a 2 day excursion. Kevin was a very competent and entertaining tour guide. We would highly recommend these tours not only because of our amazing tour guide, but also for its small tour busses (16 passengers max) which make for a very relaxing tour with easy transitions in and out of the destinations. We loved every second of this trip!
