Tour guide did a great job. Everything ran prompt and smoothly. Id suggest a touch more time at Oxford- even another 30 mins would have made a big difference.

This was a really great tour, but a little rushed. Each stop was special in its own way. I would go back and spend more time in each town. The driver and assistant were friendly and very helpful. My only complaint is that I judged the tour by the title and assumed Warwick was the last stop. It was not. My daughter and I were planning on staying in Warwick. We ended up having to purchase a train ticket to get back up to Warwick once in Oxford. Would do it again though.

Rhys was our wonderful guide for the day. We really enjoyed visiting all three areas and the ride was smooth and informative. Highly recommended for those who prefer to leave the driving in expert hands...thanks to Mark.

I loved the tour and our tour guide. I REALLY liked the 'green box' communication system. It made hearing and understanding what our tour guide said so easy. Our tour guide Robyn was very knowledgeable and had a very nice rapport with the the range of ages on our tour.

I made the booking just a day before the tour via Viator's app - which was a breeze! Our tour guide Monica was a gem! She spoke in English and Portuguese, with much wit and charm! She gave us a crash course on English history en route, which I find very interesting. First stop was Warwick Castle - we were given roughly 1.5 hours there. My partner and I sneaked off to its garden cafe instead, only returning to the castle proper about half an hour to meeting time. Then we went on to Stratford-on-Avon, spending another hour or so discovering Shakespeare's birthplace. Try to grab a bite at the town square, as stops were limited in frequency and duration. A drive through the Cotswolds took us to Oxford - Monica's knowledge about this university city made me wonder if she graduated from it! Lots of walking, so wear comfortable shoes! I know this tour was a sampler tour, and one mustn't expect too much from it due to time constraints. But having said that, a quick stop at the picturesque Cotswolds would've been marvelous. I had taken a trip to the Cotswolds in summer back in year 2000, so I know the area was worth at least half an hour for pics. But overall, this was a very enjoyable trip, and highly recommended for those who don't have the luxury of time and access to own transportation. Just sit back, relax and take in the scenery!

Emily was very informative, and the trip was well-structured. She knew all about what sights to see. Given an optional walking tour and time on our own to explore, it was a good balance between tourism and exploration. She also knew all about where to eat and where to find the toilets! All in all, a great day trip.

Had a lovely day touring. Our guide, Anthony was excellent. He provided commentary on the bus, ansered questioned then took us through Warwick Castle and on a walk around Oxford. Enjoyed driving through the Cotswolds.
