Very nice day trip - long but well paced and you see a lot. Guide and driver were excellent and there was enough time on your own in each location to eat or shop. If you are on a London vacation it is nice to get away see the countryside including a castle and Shakespeare experience. Great for teens.

Very nice tour, and Mark the tour guide was a very nice, pleasant man who was very nice and told a lot. The bus was comfortable, the times fine, only if you want to go for the Harry Potter locations in Oxford, you actually have too little time with this tour. The castle was impressive and interesting, Stratford-upon-Avon very beautiful and the drive through the Cotswolds special. Oxford is an interesting and idyllic place, but you don't have enough time to do really interesting things. Also check in advance whether you can get tickets for certain things, such as the library. This one was sold out with us.

The tour was well organized, the excursion interesting, of course you only have a short time at each station. Lunch was under all criticism, just a sloppy cheese roll with a slice of half-moldy cucumber, a biscuit, chips in the bag and water. No juice, no sausage to choose from for those who don't like cheese, this is not a sensible or tasty lunch.
