Our day trip to Oxford, Stratford Upon Avon, and the Cotswolds was AMAZING!!! My family including 2 teens loved the trip. We had a blast in the adorable town of Stratford Upon Avon and felt like we were in a storybook. We loved shopping and touring Shakespeare's birthplace. The Cotswolds were also picture-perfect and it was lovely to leave the city of London for the day to explore the beautiful countryside to see all of the little cottage type homes, flowers, bridge and streams, and have a delicious lunch at a local place with swans in the background. We loved Oxford as well and enjoyed the history and sights. Overall, the guide and tour was wonderful, with a comfortable van and small group and we'd recommend it highly.

Darren was such a knowledgeable and careful driver/guide. Gave us all the background information and a very useful map for the Oxford part of the trip. I wouldn't have known about the 127 (rather easy) steps up St Mary's to have a birdseye panaromic view of the whole city had it not for Darren's detailed briefing on each of the must see spots. A very well planned trip though I was a tad bit dissapointed about not able to see Anne Hathaway's cottage since it was out of the town centre. Overall, an excellent trip.

We really enjoyed this tour with Darren as our guide/ steady driver! He was a very nice approachable guy who provided us ample information on the places we were going and overall we had a pleasant experience!

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. Stratford, Cotswolds and Oxford are lovely and definitely worth visiting. The tour was informative and well organized. Great value for money. We highly recommend it.

El tiempo en cada lugar es corto pero es la única manera de ver esta manera y me parece que está bien asi.
