Such a nice relaxing tour, travelling from London to Oxford on the train was around £30 return trip so when I stumbled across this bus tour (because the trains are striking) the price seemed reasonable for everything it included. Not only were you getting a guided tour of Oxford, but an extra two stops and a funny, well spoken tour guide who knew so much history and entertaining stories about the places we were visiting as well as places we were passing along. The tour has an early start, but the bus was cosy and warm to have a nap as we drove out of London. I saw a comment about not having enough time at the stops and was a little apprehensive, but actually I think the schedule of the tour was suitable, especially for a rainy day in winter, maybe in summer, where the sun is up much longer, the time can be extended, but at this time of year (Dec 29th), for me the stop times were more than adequate. We were able to explore, take lots of pictures and enjoy the entertaining stories, 10/10

Absolute wonderful experience! Maria the tour bus driver was phenomenal and James our tour bus guide was entertaining! We truly loved Stratford-Upon-Avon (Shakespeare’s birthplace), we had enough time to eat breakfast, explore the small town and shop around! Then it was off to Bibury, small trout fishing town in the breathtaking Cotswold and then off to Oxford, University city with lots of history. This tour is one we’ll always remember! Thank you Maria, you’re an amazing tour driver!

It was a very good experience. The tour was well organized. The tour guide Xoxo (im not sure the spelling of his name) is so knowledgeable about the places we went to and he has a very good sense of humor. They have a very good teamwork with the driver Heather.

It was fun to discover another aspect of Britain that was hidden. Thanks to James' humorous and informative guide, I was able to have a really exotic experience. His guide skills and eloquence deserve to be called World Class :)

We had a nice day, learned and saw a lot. The guide was also super fun, the man knew a lot and also told it in a nice way. You also have a lot of freedom.
