Well managed, timely and organised. Coach and driver was on time and everyone boarded accordingly. It was a nice 16 seater MB coach w comfy seats and near new. Trip was good, lots of sharing from the driver about the places we passed by and stops at Oxford Town for 2 hrs, 1 hr at Bibury and abt 1.5 hrs at the final town in Cotswold. Overall, slightly rushed but fun and entertainment from English tales and Christmas songs from our driver from Rabbie's.

Dan was a very knowledgeable guide who shared many interesting facts about the sites we visited, this really helped to make the tour more interesting and engaging! One thing that would have been better is maybe the tour could have started earlier so that we can have more time exploring Oxford

This trip was awesome! Not only the Cotswolds and Oxford were beautiful, but we also got enough time to see each place calmly and Graham was one of the best guides we’ve ever had. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining, so it was a pleasure to go on the trip with him and listen to all the stories and interesting facts.
