The traditional university towns make a better impression

When booking this excursion you should be aware that you can only get a small impression of both cities, as you spend 6 out of 10 hours on the bus. Nevertheless, this day away from London is definitely worth it. Incidentally, the included lunch consists of a bottle of water, a sandwich and a bag of chips from Subways - not bad, but should be mentioned in my opinion so as not to arouse false expectations.

Great trip, great guide.

Trip should have been longer since there was not enough alone tome to shop. Antony, our guide was great.
