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.

The Costwolds is so beautiful. Worth the visit, it`s an incredible landmark. Not only was Gareth SUPER friendly and knowledgeable about the different locations, the sites, the culture, and the history was impeccable! The tour combined actual guides tours with time for independent walking. I’d highly recommend it!

Our guide, Rosie, was phenomenal! She even made the two hour bus ride fun. Also, our driver was very safe. I was in awe of the beautiful towns we saw. The only thing that would improve the trip was a little more time in Stratford and Oxford.

we loved everything about the trip. the experience, the history, the places,the people

A wonderful experience with a great tour guide. Only to be recommended!
