What people are saying about Hampshire

James our guide and Chris the driver were both excellent. We had time in Oxford, Bampton and Highclere to explore on our own. It was enough time at Highclere. If you are a slow shopper or I can’t decide what you want it wasn’t enough time in Oxford. But it was a fairly tight time schedule because the high clear time was very defined and we had to be there at a certain time. The tour is very organized and James is a veritable encyclopedia of information! Highly recommended

Karen our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and Chris the driver was also hilarious and drove well! Oxford and the downton abby village stops were brief but that meant a really good about of time at Highclere! Grab some food in Oxford or bring with as there’s not much elsewhere. Really excellent tour and we’ll run! Would highly recommend!
