Very friendly driver took us around the sights . Very interesting commentary about what we could see Excellent good value with lots of stops. Recommended for seeing everything and for getting your bearings on locations. Care if you sit upstairs on the left ...lots of low lying branches . Our tour was due to have a live commentary , it wasn't ...but it didn't matter. The buses were due every 20minutes but they were only 1an hour so good planning had to go into visits plus it was packed when it did come (we did still get a seat together though )

The tour is excellent , with lots of interesting information on Shakespeare and his times. Stratford is a really lovely town. I did the tour twice , using the second time to hop off at the Shakespeare houses. The buses were only every hour on 14/15 Sept but it was easy enough to time them and fill the gaps.

This was one of our favourite activities in Stratford on Avon and a great way to get to know where everything was at the start of our time there. The audio was really good and very informative. Would certainly recommend.

Easy way to get to the main sights in one day. Earphones provided for narration about sights along the route while you travel too.

Most interesting and informative Really enjoyed the excursion in the sunshine
