We had an amazing experience. Unfortunatelly i dont remember the name of the guide but he was amazing. Both destinations are very nice and worth visiting. Because the weather was rainy the guide decided to go first at the Cotswolds and then at Oxford which was very smart. The group was small and the mini van is very comfortable. When we arrived at Oxford he gave us a small map with a walking tour he made for us and that was very helpful in order for us to see the most beautiful spots of Oxford. The only thing we did not like was the meeting point which was very hard to find in the morning and the hole area was under construction, most of the people in the group complained about that.

Dan was informative and made the tour through London (as we drove though on our was) as interesting as the destination. It's important to note, that once you get to the destinations, one is entirely alone to navigate. The sites are gorgeous, but it's mostly shopping and eating once you reach the destinations as might be expected.
