This was such a great tour! Our guide Dan, aka Danny the Champion of the World, was fantastic! He had all kinds of information about each stop and each small town. The lodging was excellent in Stratford-upon-Avon-we had more space in our hotel room than we had in London- and we never started the day before 9 am. We were given enough time in each place we visited. Please note that you are on your own at all the destinations, not moving with a guide and a group. I enjoyed this because I could spend more time where I wanted and not have to keep up with the others. For example, we had a lot of time at Warwick Castle and after touring it my friend and I headed into the town to explore without having to worry about staying with the others. I would definitely do another tour with this company.
Debra was so knowledgable about the Cotswolds and Blenheim, we learned and enjoyed every minute of the day. We learned the back story everywhere. She was also very kind, at the end, talking to each participant to make sure everyone knew how to get “home” Safely. Debra has a wonderful sense of humor and a deep understanding of England’s history. She even told us where to stand to see the Queen on her way to address Parliament Yesterday morning. She was absolutely correct with the time and place. We took video of the procession. What a thrill. We saw the Queen!!!! Thank you, Debra, Michelangelo our driver, and Evans and Evans. What a wonderful tour.
Phil Bennett was out guide - well informed, professional, helpful and fun. The tour was comprehensive, but Phil made it interesting and complete. His knowledge helped fill in the gaps of knowledge of the group. The Churchill exhibit was outstanding!
It was a very good choice. Cotswold is a nice place to see. Especially when your guide gives you good insights of the place.
Nijel and Kevin are really professional, well organized tour arrangement, I will order again!
