The meeting place was confusing. I thought the. Company was get your guide. The company is Rabbies. Our guide, June, was a wealth of knowledge. I wished we able to stop in a residential neighborhood to take some pictures but i don’t think the neighbors would like that. So I have videos of the neighborhood. Buford was the same way.

Right from the start, the tour was filled with hilariously funny insights about where we were or the people who may have been affiliated with the area. We went around two beautiful towns in cotsworld with great food and beautiful sights. At Oxford, we had more than sufficient time to go around and explore famous landmarks and grab some great lunch too!
