Full description
The tour begins in the captivating college town of Oxford. Here you can follow in the footsteps of Oxford University’s prestigious former students - from C.S Lewis to Bill Clinton - as you stroll the courtyards and cobbled lanes of this historic town. Marvel at the famous “dreaming spires” and visit the Bodleian Library - one of the oldest libraries in Europe. While you are in Oxford you cannot miss the opportunity to visit Christ Church. Not only is it one of the largest colleges at the university, it is also one of the major locations from the Harry Potter films. Marvel at the grandeur of the Great Hall, instantly recognizable to movie fans as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The tour then moves onto the elegant city of Cambridge. Home to the famous University of Cambridge, you will have the opportunity to explore the renowned Cavendish Laboratory, King’s College Chapel and the Cambridge University Library. You can also visit the oldest college that still exists - Peterhouse - which dates back to 1284. The tour will finish at approximately 19:00 in London.

    Schöner Eindrucken den traditionellen Universitätsstädten

    Bei Buchung dieses Ausfluges sollte man sich im klaren darüber sein, dass man von beiden Städten lediglich einen kleinen Eindruck gewinnen kann, da man 6 von 10 Stunden im Bus verbringt. Dennoch lohnt sich dieser Tag abseits von London auf jeden Fall. Das inkludierte Mittagessen besteht übrigens aus einer Flasche Wasser, einem Sandwich und einer Tüte Chips von Subways - nicht weiter schlimm, aber sollte m. M. nach erwähnt werden, um nicht falsche Erwartungen zu wecken.

    Very rude tour guide, bad time management

    August 23, 2019

    You issued me a ticket for the trip, but it was already booked up.

    I purchased a ticket online. I was given an itinerary and received subsequent emails saying my trip was approaching. The morning of the trip, I was sent an electronic ticket with a confirmation number and presented it to the bus driver. The driver said I wasn't on his list of passengers. I went to the Golden Tours desk and they said the trip was already full. You can imagine how upset I was with what had transpired. On top of it, I had paid 15 pounds for a taxi to get me there. Not a happy customer.
