James was marvelous and he knows his stuff!! Witty and funny and never dull at all. It's a long day trip so I suggest you have a heavy a breakfast and bring snacks like bread or sweets on the bus. Hot food isn't allowed to be brought on the bus but cold food is absolutely fine. It's better to have lunch in Oxford cause you'll have more time there to look around than in Stratford-upon-Avon. Theres not a lot of time to go around the Cotswold to take photos so try to take as much as you can whenever able. In Oxford, try to go inside one of the colleges but most have a small entrance fee. We went inside Trinity but I think the other colleges may have been more scenic.
It was a wonderful day trip. It was advertised as an 8 hour outing but was cut back to 6 hours. That meant that 2 hours of sightseeing was completely gone. Would have loved an hour of free time in Oxford as well as a free hour at Statford. A quick lunch was all there was time for because needed to head back to bus. What we did see was wonderful and would do it again but on another tour group.
Our tour guide was absolutely incredible and she made our day one I'll never forget. She was always very willing to answer our questions and always had a smile on her face. The timing of each tour was well done but wouldn't have minded to spend more time at Oxford, but because we had three places to see, it wouldn't be possible. Cant recomend this tour any higher.
Our guide James was very pleasant and knowledgeable, and our driver Marius very witty with some great tips for us tourists. Although we were hopping from one place to another (as was to be expected), for the future, I don't think anyone would mind to have extra 30 min on every stop.
I enjoyed the whole day and the bus driver and guide were very approachable and up for a chat! The Cotswolds was more of a stop (30mins) though
