    Nice trip

    We started with warwick castle, then statford then oxford. The trip was nice but almost half the trip time we spent on the bus because of long way between the places and also some traffic. The guide was nice and informative, the meal was ok and the entrance tickets to the castle and shakespear's house were included..

    the guide is teaching in Oxford

    I'd never been experiencing a super guide like this lady, she is professional, teaching in Oxford who brought us to the private area, she told us something about British that we would interest to know, and surprisingly she guided us personally in Warwick Castle and Oxford. Highly recommended this tour.

    What a lovely Tour

    I was alone in London for a day and decided to take this tour, because it visited various places for a short period of time, I thought this would be ideal for me, as I am not used to going anywhere alone, and I was not disappointed, I had enough time to absorb all the different places before I could feel the need to socialise. It did occur to me that perhaps the Guide could arrange for solo travellors to group together if they wish as I observed there were a few other people travelling on their own looking a bit lonely. They provide a subway small roll with cheese and a few leaves a bottle of water and a cookie enough to stave away hunger as there is not a lot of time to sit for a meal. The coach was comfortable, and the day although a long one was incredibly relaxing , I had enough energy to go shopping afterwards.
