The tour is so good, the places are amazing and both guide and driver are lovely. I had been reading some opinions in advanced and sone are not true. James (guide) is so nice to everyone and he does make sure no one is left behind. He explains a lot. The bus id a confy new Mercedes. I went with my three children, got some snacks and toys for the bus, so everything was perfect.

Despite the wind and some rain, the trip was amazing. I really loved our guide, he was so charismatic and made the tour so exciting. I absolutely recommend it to people who enjoy historical buildings, you can feel like traveling through time while visiting Cotswold's villages and Oxford. For most of the time, we could walk on our own which was great if you were interested in some specific things or places, but I would've preferred a walking tour. However, walking on your own is much more flexible.

Too crowded, waited in line too long.

No point in buying tickets in advance. The line is hours long. Takes way too long to get in. Mobbed inside almost to claustrophobic levels. Very very very rude hostess at Cafe Angelina. I asked a simple question and she was extremely impatient and rude. She ruined the visit for us.
