We loved the walk in the village, the castle and its park and of course our charming guide.
The weather was brilliant, so we had a great time walking around and enjoying the buildings and the landscape.
There were quite a lot of visitors at Highclere castle, thus, it was very crowded inside. You couldn't really have a detailled look at a lot of rooms. But we wasn't a surprise - and as the sun was shining we really enjoyed walking around outside and enjoying a drink in front of the great building.

Our guide was great, she was funny and gave us a lot of information and entertainment.

I was attending the trip Downton Abbey and Village Small Group Tour on Thursday, July 28 2022.
I did enjoy the trip very much. The bus was comfortable and the driver drives nice.
I must say that the guide on the tour did a very good job. He did speak very clearly so even though I’m hearing impaired I had no trouble hearing what he said.
He told us he grew up not far from Bampton, the village from Downton Abbey, so he knew the area.
First we drove to Bampton and he showed us the church and other buildings used in Downton Abbey.
Then we drove to Highclere Castle. We had 3 hours to spend at the castle and that was enough.
We could eat some lunch there and take the trip trough the castle to see the rooms famous from the series.
Then we had good time to walk around in the park around the castle, and that was very nice.
I will highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves Downton Abbey!

I had booked this tour but was not able to attend. Their customer service was fantastic! I now have a £80 value credit/ gift certificate that I am willing to part with for less. Valid for any tour in 2020. Contact me for more information.

This tour was very good. Stewart was our tour guide. He had a lot of knowledge about the area and the show. Our weather was great, sunny day. We enjoyed exploring Highclere. The only recommendation would be for the guide to use the microphone. It was hard to hear sometimes with road noise and the A/C fan running.

I went with my wife (having never seen the show) but still found it interesting. With her affection for the series I know she got much more out of it but I enjoyed things as well. It is a long day but things were well organized, a nice tour bus, and friendly guide. Well done.

We had a fabulous day, on the 9 hour tour to Bampton/Downton Village and Highclere castle/Downton castle. The weather was perfect, which added even more to our experience. Stewart, our tour guide, did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable, informative, witty.
Loved visiting the village.
The highlight was the castle itself , of course.
Totally recomendable.

This was a very popular tour. The large group that assembled at our meeting place was divided into three groups. Lottie was our excellent guide. The stop at Bampton was very nice and gave us a chance to see where the village scenes were filmed, We enjoyed the castle and grounds. Make sure you walk to the "Secret Garden" if you enjoy plants. They did a good job of providing adequate food options as well as restrooms.

We did this tour the other day and I have to say, after watching the video advertising the tour, I was a bit disappointed. Seeing the “Downton Village” and Highclere Castle themselves was an amazing experience! However, I was expecting our tour guide to be a bit more enthusiastic. For instance, during the coach ride, the TV monitor they use to play the show during the ride wouldn’t work so she said we would do trivia questions along the way and keep things fun. But then she never did...she mostly just sat there in silence like everyone else on the ride up. Then when we arrived at the castle, we had to wait outside in the rain for everyone’s tickets to be purchased. I feel like this probably should be done BEFORE the day of the tour. For the price, these things should be expected. It was still a great experience, I just think it could have been better for the price!

Over hyped. Little or nothing of interest to look at. Creaming it on the back of a tv series. Dreadful.

We're very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the Downton Abbey tour, however we are confused by your review. You booked onto a Downton Abbey coach tour that visits the key filming locations in the series, namely Bamptonm which was used as Downton village and Highclere Castle which was used as Downton Abbey throughout the whole series. You said the tour was 'creaming it off the back of a TV series' and yes, the whole tour is focused and based on Downton Abbey, the making of the show and the locations visited. Customers choose to book onto this tour for this reason and would be disappointed if we didn't focus heavily on the TV series. Regarding the comment 'Little or nothing of interest to look at', this is a matter of opinion. The tour description says that the tour will visit Bampton, a Cotswold village and then Highclere Castle, both of which will be are considered by many to be absolutely beautiful and very interesting in their own right as well as being recognizable Downton Abbey film locations. Clearly you had different expectations for the tour. We can only assume that you didn't read the tour description prior to booking onto the tour. The whole point of the tour is to visit two stunning locations which customers usually appreciate due to their link with a popular TV series.

This day trip was amazing! We took the small group tour so there were only 6 of us. Our tour guide Chris was fantastic and very engaged. The driver Stewart also did a great job especially considering we had a flat tire on the way out in the morning. He was able to change the tire and get us back on track. We loved the village and had a chance to pick up lunch there and eat on the way to Highclere Castle. We had plenty of time to meander around after we toured the house and Chris spent a good amount of time with us giving us the history of the house and land. He also took time to take photos for us and knew when to get the best ones. If you love Downton Abbey, this is the tour for you!!
