What people are saying about Surrey

We really enjoyed the excursion. Everything was well organized and you had just over an hour at each destination to explore everything yourself. On the trip, our guide gave a lot of information about the castle and the two places. Only in Oxford was there a short tour with the guide showing the most important buildings. Overall it was very informative, but of course the time at each destination was too short to see everything sufficiently for yourself. The guide described the trip as a "tapas tour". Only the meeting point was a bit difficult to find if you take the wrong exit at Victoria train station. But that was also possible.

Morton was a fantastic guide. Gave the perfect amount of information, was attentive, and even went above and beyond for other guests on the tour. The tour itself is long, but well worth it to have a sampling of other areas away from London. We could’ve used more time in Warwick to see the bird display or explore town, and more time in Oxford, but enjoyed the time we did have.

Great trip. The guide Eileen was knowledgeable, friendly and very funny. You could not ask for a better guide. This trip was a great way to experience some new places and get a feel for something different.

I had Peter as our guide and Paulo as our driver and they were the best!! Loved all the history and how we got to explore each place. Really amazing tour, highly recommend!!
