  • Photo-friendly views of the English countryside
  • Hassle-free round-trip travel by air-conditioned coach from central London
What to Expect
Meet your air-conditioned coach in central London before beginning your English countryside sightseeing tour. First, visit Stratford-Upon-Avon—birthplace of William Shakespeare. Explore the town with your guide, and gain insight into Shakespeare’s life and times. When your guided tour comes to an end, you have free time to explore independently. Next, head through the Cotswolds and pass honey-colored streets where time seems to stand still. Stop along the way to capture fine Cotswolds' views on camera. On route back to London, stop in Oxford, the “City of Dreaming Spires.” Here, enjoy a second guided walking tour and discover top sites of interest such as Balliol College, the Museum of the History of Science, and Sheldonian Theatre. When your guided tour ends you have free time to explore. Finally, return in comfort to central London to conclude your tour where it began.

This was my second trip with Anderson tours. Highly recommended ! Trip was good and was worth the money . Suggest to have more time in oxford rather than spending time in photo stops at cotswold. But no complains as such . Overall it was a memorable trip 🙂 thanks

If you’re a fan of Shakespeare, you’ll enjoy Stratford’s dedicated museums but if you’re not (I’m not), it’s just another quaint town that gets boring after half an hour of walking the streets. Another cute, quaint little town is Bourton in the Cotswolds- again boring after a

Dear Jewels Thank you for your review of our Oxford, Stratford, and The Cotswolds tour. I am really sorry to hear that the day didn't entirely meet your expectations. We try very hard here to ensure customer expectations are met by providing the day's itinerary on the E-Ticket. We hope that is itinerary gives our customers an excellent outline of how long will be dedicated to each section of the tour; however this can vary as our tour guides do try to accommodate everyone's requirements for the day. It is often our goal to give our passengers the highlights of the areas featured in the title of tour, providing interesting information about each step along the way, of course every customer's tastes and interests vary, so we are very sorry if our chosen highlights for these areas were not captivating for you on this particular occasion. We take all feedback very seriously and will make notes regarding your comments on this trip, though we've had no similar complaints so far, all feedback is welcome and valuable. With regards to our pickup options, we do provide multiple pickup locations in London, though the default pickup location is often Earls Court, the other available locations should be shown on the E-Ticket. We are happy to amend pickup locations according to customer requirements should a change be requested. Thank you for your comments on our coach, the driver, and the guide. We are delighted to hear your journey was comfortable and the guide was helpful. Kind Regards, Anderson Tours

Dear Lunanne Thank you for your review of our Oxford, Stratford and Cotswolds tour. We are happy to hear that you had a great tour that created sweet memories. The Tour Manager Sandra has a particular fondness for Stratford-Upon-Avon and all things Shakespeare and it would seem conveyed her genuine passion and knowledge about the subject. On a sunny day, Stratford is a beautiful city! We hope you can travel with us again one day. Kind Regards Anderson Tours
