Experience some of the most famous tourist attractions in England with this Oxford, Stratford and Cotswold Villages tour. This tour includes an orientation tour and free time to explore Stratford-Upon-Avon, the entrance to the birthplace of Shakespeare, a scenic drive through The Cotswolds with plenty of opportunities to take photos of the traditional English villages, and a walking tour through the university city of Oxford. You will enjoy comfortable transportation by luxury coach with the services of an experienced tour guide throughout the day.
  • Reach the Cotswolds, Oxford, and Stratford-Upon-Avon with ease
  • Enjoy two guided walking tours, with free time to explore independently
  • 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.

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...More
