This was a great tour! Warwick Castle was a little too "commercialized" for what we expected, but it was interesting to see. Oxford was amazing and we could have easily spent all day there. Same with Stratford-on-Avon! So much history and such beauty! Highly recommend making those trips! Geoff was our tour guide and he was incredibly knowledgable! It felt like we were traveling with our own private history professor. He made the experience so much more wonderful simply by providing such a lovely backdrop to the history of our surroundings. The tour company picked us up at our hotel as they said they would and kept us on schedule. All ran smoothly with no complaints! If you have the option for the picnic lunch with your tour, DO IT! It's something different than what most Americans are used to eating (& comes with wine!) and takes the pressure out of finding somewhere to eat while you're out wandering around. Trust me, the time you spend at each stop goes quickly and you'll probably want to keep walking around as opposed to stopping for a bite to eat. It may seem a little expensive to add it on to your tour at first, but you'll notice quickly that everything in England is expensive compared to what we're used to paying for in the US; it's worth the convenience.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about the ‘wonderful’ experience on Golden Tour’s day-tour of “Warwick, Stratford-on-Avon, Oxford”.

We note that you found Warwick Castle a little too "commercialized" but nevertheless appreciated that you found it interesting to see.

Both Oxford and Stratford-on-Avon are amazing and we can see why you could have easily spent the whole day here. In fact some people take this trip to figure out which of the three attractions are worth revisiting to spend a more time. Thank you for highly recommending this trip to everyone.

Your tour guide Geoff, whom you mention, is one of our most knowledgeable members of the team. Glad to hear that he made a great impression on you and by labeling him as your own ‘private history professor’ you must have really appreciated his knowledge. I am sure Geoff will be delighted to be addressed as Prof Geoff.

Sightseeing is always more meaningful when accompanied by someone who knows and understands the history to be able to share at the right time and place.

Covering three great locations with the distances involved in a single day is always time challenging hence we are so glad you took the opportunity to save time by pre-ordering our ‘picnic-lunch’ which you found useful. Thank you for choosing Golden Tours.

Our time in London was limited so we decided to do the night lights tour. Our guide was Joe Blaazer who was passionate about London and gave an entertaining and informative tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It was certainly a highlight of our stay.

This was the first thing we did when we arrived in London. We sat on top and had the best views and so many once in a lifetime photos. You can see all the things you want to do and do them when you chose. The River Cruise was a great bonus as well.

Our tour guide was great, she was knowledgable and highly recommend this tour. I believe our tour guide's name was Margo. If you are planning to go to London I would put this tour on top of your list. It was a rainy Friday and she still made the best of it.
