    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the tour starting point in Victoria, central London, to meet your guide and group. Hop aboard a climate-controlled vehicle and journey from the city into the English countryside.

    Begin with a visit to Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, roughly two hours away. Explore the medieval market town and the half-timbered house where the legendary bard was born. Learn about Shakespeare's family from a fascinating collection of artifacts and experience how his extraordinary work is still relevant today.

    Shakespeare’s Schoolroom. See where the iconic English writer spent his school years in this fascinating trip to Shakespeare’s Schoolroom. Explore where it all started for the playwright, before he moved to London to bring his plays to the stage.

    Continue to Anne Hathaway’s Cottage & Gardens. See this historical English home — a thatched farmhouse containing original Tudor furniture — where Shakespeare courted his former bride. Meander the cottage’s gardens and grounds overflowing with fragrant blooms and traditional shrubs.

    Complementary lunch pack included. Sit down to a box lunch aboard your vehicle and gaze out at the rolling hills and storybook villages as you ride through the Cotswolds, a designated "Area of Natural Beauty."

    Stop for photo opportunities in three of the region's prettiest villages, including Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water, often described as the “Little Venice.”

    After a day of sightseeing, arrive back in London at roughly 6:30pm. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off at the original start point.

    Antonio Randall was absolutely fabulous... his presentation from London travels to Warwick Castle, to Stratford, to Cotswolds and Oxford came across beautifully from a well-informed, polished tour guide that made the trip exceptionally enjoyable!

    This was a pleasant, informative, and comprehensive tour. It starts with well-organized boarding at the station, and at each drop-off and re-loading point. The beauty of the English countryside is displayed, through the rolling hills to the Cotswolds. Stops in qauint English

    We enjoyed the tour!The places are lovely!Lots of memories! The Bibury, Bourton-on-the-water, Anne Hathaway Cottage, Shakespeare’s Birthplace. Plus no dull moments when in the bus as our Tour Guide Tish was very knowledgeable about British History as well as the current events

    Dolly is very unqualified and has a bad impression on the British! 多莉非常不合格,對英國人印像不好! 我是參加中文團的,原本中文導遊很不錯,因為英文團壞車自身的問題,導致最後很不愉快的結束,Dolly行為霸道,蠻不講理,把原本我們坐的車給搶走,還把我們團每個人的個人財產物品亂扔! 奉勸大家想參加要再三考慮,反正Golden tours我不會再選擇,花錢買罪受。送我也不會再參加。

    Only positive about this tour was the areas visited. Expect to stay at each area only 30-45 minutes and that's including the time given to run through the sites. Coach was extremely hot the entire time as the air conditioning system wasnt strong enough to keep anyone
