Embark on a full-day guided trip to Oxford and Cotswolds from London. See the historic Oxford University, explore the Cotswolds villages, and admire the lush English countryside.

Depart London and travel by a luxury Mercedes minibus and spend the morning exploring the beautiful university city of Oxford. Wander amongst the listed buildings and colleges, and climb one of the vantage points for breathtaking views of the spires.

Marvel at the Ashmolean Museum's collection before making your way to the quaint Cotswolds villages to see traditional tiny cottages built from stone. Arrive at the village of Burford, the Gateway to the Cotswolds, and lose yourself in this bustling market town.

Graham was an excellent guide/bus driver. From the start until the end he was informative, funny and made the trip thoroughly enjoyable. The Cotswold’s area is quaint and worth a look around. Oxford is such a large town and 2 hrs gives you a taste of what the have there. I would recommend packing food as you will want to spend the time exploring not sitting down waiting for your meal. Definitely worth the trip

We had a wonderful day with Rabbie’s tours, and Neal and Nick were lovely guides. Doing this in the off season was great as places like Arlington Row weren’t overcrowded and you could really enjoy the peaceful landscape (and get great pictures). Thanks again to Nick and Neal, we would definitely look into doing another tour with Rabbie’s!

Excellent tour to be Oxford and Cotswold village. Place to visit Oxford is definitely Turf Tavern where Bill Clinton used to go during his Oxford days.Australian P M (Bob Hope) also has some sort of record over there. If u want to visit any college then u have to book independently as the tour does not cover the entrance ticket cost In 2 hours u can either either visit the university or the pub so pick ur choice although the pub may be full during lunch hours The driver Russ and guide Neil were fabulous and kept us entertained However the Cotswolds left us disappointed
