Beautiful tour of the Cotswolds and Oxford! We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable with a great personality. There was quite a bit of driving but it didn’t feel like it as we had a great time, and he definitely didn’t make the drive feel longer than it was! Definitely recommend for those who want to see a bit of the English countryside and are unsure of where to start.

Our driver John was funny, welcoming, and knowledgeable. And great music selection on the bus. Time in the Cotswolds is limited, so not a good choice if you're looking for anything more than a cursory visit. 2.5 hours in Oxford was good for us.

The cotswolds are beautiful and I definitely recommend this tour with Rabbies tours. Our guide told a lot of dad jokes, which I loved! Made the long drives more entertaining.

Dann the Welsh driver is the best! A good driver, attentive, clear and concise in his stories and narratives. We learnt a lot. Plus good music! Hello from the Greek couple!

Highly recommended tour. Kevin our driver and tour guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and funny. The tour was well organised and places visited lovely.
