It's a good compromise if you want to be able to see a few things all in one day and not walk too much. If you buy the option including entry tickets you can also enjoy a visit to the castle and Shakespeare's birth place which are both worth seeing. The trip is in a very comfortable coach. The guide could have been better though. He didn't make too much of an effort in trying to keep the group interested, he immediately told everyone he wouldn't wait for anyone in case of delays and he would sleep well anyway if doing so - which I didn't find funny. He just seemed not to care that much. I guess it just depends on the person, there are definitely better guides, even on these tours.

All in all a very nice trip to rural Great Britain - charming villages and towns were visited. Unfortunately, there was only little time available everywhere (the longest was 1.5 hours, the admissions, provided that the bookings already run out of time). We had booked without admission and it was the right decision and: an hour for a lock is far too little and would not have been fun. Stratford upon Avon as a town itself is, in my opinion, more interesting than just Shakespeare's birthplace. Our guide Monica was super-sweet and told interesting stories and anecdotes, even in London even on the way home to shorten our time on the bus. I call that committed! It is a shame that you drive to the places for so long, that is of course missing when you actually visit the places. In my opinion, the castle could be left out entirely and more time in Stratford and Oxford could be planned.

Great sites, comfy bus, too little time

The audio equipment with the earphone was quite helpful for hearing the guide. The guide used excellent judgment regarding the weather, having us shop indoors until the rain stopped. He made sure everyone knew their way back to their hotels. It really wasn’t enough time in Stratford-upon-Avon. All the other tour companies do the same tour, though.
