Full description
Embark on a journey through the heart of the English countryside, to the unblemished rolling green hills of the famous Cotswolds. Piercing the morning fog, to exploring the traditional farmland; your small vehicle is able to visit locations others simply are not. Be transported back to a simpler time, of quaint villages, thatched cottages and, medieval churches. Your guide will expertly uncover the history and beauty of this area that has attracted global attention.

Of course, your tour will incorporate some time to visit rural shops to sample their natural and rare products, along with a traditional historic pub for lunch. You can either eat the locally sourced produce at this pub, or take in the idyllic views with your own pack lunch (not included).

After lunch, your group will depart for Oxford, home to the world’s top-ranked University and one of the most densely interesting historical cities that you could hope to see. Wander the same historic streets as some of history’s finest authors, philosophers, scientists, and politicians. Your Oxford-educated guide will show you a host of the city’s highlights over the course of a two-hour walking tour, detailing the city and institution in a way that only Oxford alumni could. Explore one of the University’s oldest colleges to see what life is really like at the illustrious university; visit a Hogwarts-esque dining hall; explore a dazzling stone chapel and enter the oldest part of the world-famous Bodleian Library. (This site really was used in the Harry Potter films!)
