Our guide BRUCE was outstanding and bridged the longer journeys between the stations very well with interesting, entertaining stories. Our chauffeur Lazlo gave everything to get from A to B as quickly as possible. The tour is highly recommended if you don't have much time, but of course there is little time on site due to the distances by bus (each approx. 1.5 hours). Make sure that you also book the tickets! If you have more time it probably makes more sense to do max Windsor and Oxford in one day, then it's not such a rush. All in all, everything is TOP organized.

It was great. Oxford was a bit short on time, but that was also due to the traffic situation (funeral of the Queen and many arrivals). The guide was awesome (Rick). He explained very clearly and slowly, so that even I - with poor English skills - understood a lot. That was great! That was a worthwhile day!

Pete was one of the best guides I have ever had very informative and helpful I’m sorry I can’t remember the drivers name he was a very good driver I would recommend you company the tour I went on was worth every penny alinda brown

It was a very interesting trip, with a wonderful guide who told interesting facts about the history of England, about the history of the places where we were.
