Our trip to Oxford, the Cotswolds, Stratford, and Warwick Castle went really well. Our tour guide, Ross, was incredibly kind, knowledgable, and helpful. The coach driver, Malcolm, was also wonderful. The tour was about 12 hours (with driving) but went very smoothly. We did reach some very heavy traffic on our way back to central London, but Ross and Malcolm kept us entertained. The only downside to these tours is that you never really get all the time you want in certain areas. I would have loved more time in Oxford, and also would have liked to get out of the coach while we were in the Cotswolds. Overall though, I cannot complain. It felt worth the money because it would have been difficult to get to these places on my own and I would not have received the knowledge our guide provided. All of the destinations were beautiful and interesting.
So we wanted to do all the things on this tour (except we didn't know about Warwick Castle at the time), but we finally decided we didn't want to take the time to drive to all these places in one day, and then drive to western England. I struggled on this tour, and we decided to take a day in London and do it. We were glad we did. No stress at all. We had a great driver, great tour guide, and made memories. We would recommend this to someone who had the time to leave London for the day and would like to visit some old, historical sites and see some beautiful scenery along the way.
Our guide, Allan, helped out a lot because I used my walker and scooter. He was most accommodating. My wife cried when we visited Stratford upon Avon because she had taught Shakespear for thirty years. It was kind of a pilgrimage for her.
Thank the guide who is so talkative, but I did not catch up part of his speech. The time for Warwick Castle is not enough for me. I hope the next time the tours could have more free time in the tour. Thanks.
We enjoyed the tour very much, except the weather did not cooperate very well. Everything was great, the tour guide was nice. We'll definitely do it again sometime given another opportunity.
