Our tour guide was funny, lovely and her knowledge about history was beyond! It was very nice listening to her talk about those places.
My friend and I only wish we had more time in Oxford, we only did a quik tour of the outsides of some buildings of Oxford university.
Warwick castle is beautiful from the outside, but inside is not really authentic, it's more for kids, as they are a lot of reconstitutions.
Stratford was great we had lunch there, there is more time there to explore a bit if you're not going into Shakespeare's house!
Lovely cafes and shops! Overall a great day out of London!

Fairly good tour, fitting in a lot in one trip. Great commentary on board the bus, friendly tour guide. Warwick castle was nice, quiet on the day, more for kids but there is some stuff to amuse adults note of advice, buy the ticket to see the castle otherwise you will miss out on seeing a fairly nice castle. One complaint was that we rushed through the cotswolds without any stop for a photo, the windows of the bus were so grimy that you could barely see out of them let alone take a photo. Stratford was good skipped the Shakespeare tour and just walked around town a bit, Oxford was really short, small tour noting some famous colleges and buildings and a couple minutes to walk around. Little rushed, but over all a good tour. Thanks.

I could easily skip Oxford as a stop and spent more time at Stratford upon Avon and Warwick Castle. Good day trip. The staff were very professional and friendly.

I can't remember the name of our tour guide .. I think it was Mark. Our tour guide was extremely friendly, polite, and quite humorous. I really enjoyed our trip! This particular trip did not include tickets to Warwick Castle, or Shakespeare's birthplace. There is another tour that you can book that includes admission to both places, or you can buy tickets on board. Having seen enough castles and famous people's houses, we opted not to purchase admission to either site. We had an excellent time looking at the exterior of the sites and enjoyed our time walking around and exploring the cities surrounding the sites instead.

It's good to go in October as this is not a high season so we have plenty of time to go around

Exceeded our expectations and the tour guide did an excellent job.

One improvement could be to provide more details of the meetup point at the coach station.
