Charming
Sep 2019
If you are a Downton Abbey fan this is a must! It is a spectacular tour! Be aware though it is very long as we did Oxford as well. The only disappointment when you get to the Abbey is they do not let you take pictures inside the house. That was a real bummer for me! However, it is still worth the tour as it is very fascinating. The Abbey is just stunning!

Great tour of Highclere Castle
Aug 2019
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.

Wonderful visit to Highclere Castle and Bampton Village
Aug 2019
We had the most amazing time in our visit to Highclere Castle and Village. Our guide Eva is really friendly and has a lot of information and knowledge about the Village and Castle. We were really lucky to have here as a guide. The coach was really confortable. Very happy with the experience.

Fantastic Tour--A Dream Come True.
Aug 2019
My husband I went on the "Downton Abbey and Village Small Group Tour by Mini Coach" by Brit Movie Tours las week. This was an awesome tour and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was like stepping back in time--truly a dream come true to see Bampton Village and Highclere Castle. This tour was well worth the money The tour guide was great at explaining all the sites we saw in Bampton and at Highclere Castle. So glad he also talked about the behind the scenes tidbits about the filming of Downton Abbey. Being able to watch Season 1 Episode and 1 and 2 on the coach was a nice touch. Highclere Castle was the highlight of the tour. The tour guide gave us enough time to walk around Highclere Castle, take a tour of the inside and view the Egyptian Exhibit, (we paid extra for this) as well as to grab a hot lunch outside. We highly recommend Brit Movie Tours. If you're a Downton Abbey Fan, you will enjoy this tour.

Everything we expected it to be
Sep 2019
We had a great experience throughout the day. A group of only 15 travelers in a comfortable mini-bus. Gordon was a humorous and friendly driver, and Eva was a hilarious and knowledgeable guide. She kept a banter going that was fun, not overwhelming, and helped make the day go quickly. We stopped in Bampton, which was the place where many of the "Downton" village scenes were shot. We learned a lot of fun backstories about the locations. Highclere itself was as spectacular as imagined. Our only surprise was that rooms seemed smaller than we had imagined, but we found all of our favorites among the rooms and furniture. We also learned a lot about the real family that owns Highclere, and their very interesting history. There were three cafes from which to choose, toilets in two locations, and 5000 acres of grounds and pastureland. There was a lot to see and absorb, but our guide Eva did a great job of prepping us before we arrived, and then we were free to tour at our own pace. They also now have their own bottled gin, Highclere. Made a very nice gin and tonic.

Could not visit the downstairs and kitchen area. The first floor was good and the 2nd floor bedrooms also. The gardens were really nice to see and mostly in full bloom. I also liked seeing the open wall structure with the columns at the far end of the grounds.
