The trip was, as I already said, great. Our guide Dolly gave us a lot of background Information, I liked especially Stratford, Shakespear's birth house, you really got an idea how things were at that time, also the idea to have young actors playing some Scenes and reciting Shakespears sonetts was very appealing. All in all it was a wonderful, very interesting day out of London in a beautiful English landscape. Thanks again to Dolly! Just one more remark, I booked the trip via internet from Vienna Austria and I was only able to book the basic arrangements, no tickets included. We were a small group, so it did not bother too much to buy the tickets on location

Insgesamt ist der Ausflug als gut zu bewerten. Warwick Castle ist sehenswert, muss aber nicht zwingend sein. Eher was für Familien mit Kindern. Enttäuscht waren meine Schwester und ich, dass die Cotswold sehr dürftig ausgefallen. Darauf hatten wir uns am meisten gefreut. Hier hätten wir uns einen Stop gewünscht. Leider wurde nur daran vorbei gefahren am Rande und per Guide ein paar Infos. Bevor man sich dessen bewusst war, war man auch schon vorbei. Die sehr lange Fahrt muss man für ein paar Aufenthalte in Kauf nehmen. Wer sich nur für ein paar Tage in London aufhält, dem würde ich den Ausflug nicht empfehlen.

Die Tagesfahrt fing etwas holprig, da der Bus nicht dort stand wie auf dem Voucher beschrieben. Und selbst der Guide must erst nach dem Bus suchen. Die Abfahrt verzögerte sich um ca 30 Minuten. Der Guide war recht lustig und unterhaltsam. Wir hätten uns gewünscht das der Bus bei den Gotswolds etwas langsamer gefahren wäre um auch mal ein Foto zu machen. Die Führung durch den Guide in Warwick Castel, Stratford und Oxford waren sehr gut. Auch die Information vom Guide während der Hin und Rückfahrt im Bus war sehr informative und sehr unterhaltsam.
