The guide was friendly and had really entertaining anecdotes. The towns were all lovely. Oxford was very walkable and it was really nice to enjoy a meal at The Bear Pub, by the fire. I would gladly recommend this experience to others! The time you spend at every destination is just appropriate.

It was my first trip after coming to the UK. I booked 3 tickets for me and my friends for the Stratford, Cotswolds and Oxford trip. At first we were not sure about the money we put in but now I can definitely say this was the best investment so far. Darren was hands down the best and the most entertaining guide ever. He gave us so much insights on the background of all the places we were visiting and also told us where all we could go. He even stopped for bathroom breaks and told us where to find one in the places visiting. We left our bags in the van and he made sure it was all safe. I'm definitely booking my next trip with Getyourguide. The amount was inclusive of guide and transportation from and to London. Thank you for giving us a wonderful time.

It was quite good. Me and my girlfriend liked it a lot. Our guide James ( I think) was awesome. However, we visited 3 places ( stratford upon avon, colstwods and Oxford) which are too much for just a day trip. As a result, we only got 1 glimpse from each of it which it was nice but not nearly enough. We liked Colstwods villages so much but we only stayed there for 45 min
