I had a wonderful day with the tour group. The weather was perfect and everything went smoothly. The only thing that was bad was that Oxford was hold all its graduations the weekend we went so it was hard to get around and the colleges and churches were all closed to the public. The Cotswold areas were beautiful!

It was a very interesting and fun excursion especially as our tour guide John was extremely funny. The trip is really worthwhile, but if you want to see the inside of Christ Church because of Harry Potter, you have to book in advance or then Oxford is not that much going on. The Cotwolds villages are delightful, nice to see the Countryside if you've been to London.

Brilliant! Transportation very good, comfortable and clean. The guide very friendly and with many interesting things to tell. Like any tour, the times are short to see everything, but it's worth it :) My only recommendation is to go to the starting point well in advance, since not being from there can make it a bit difficult to get there. All excellent :)
