Really nice!!

First of all, we had very good care from Frank and Carlos! Many thanks to the two for the excellent support! The bus was very comfortable and the schedule was well thought out. Of course you could spend more and more time everywhere, but after 10 hours you are really filled with wonderful impressions.

Great trip to the Cotswolds and Highclere Castle! Oxford was a bit boring. See that cleaning / refurbishment is needed in the courtyard at Highclere Castle. Great that the guide was English so it was easy to understand. At the station when we were waiting for the bus it was not always easy to understand what they were saying. Wifi was supposed to be on the bus, but it wasn't.
