    What to Expect
    Rise early for a 7:30am pickup form Marble Arch in London. Soon, the gray urban streets of the capital will give way to the green of the countryside, and you’ll start to see the serene villages of the Cotswolds.
    Stretch your legs on a walk through the market town of Burford, and call in at the 900-year-old Church of St. John the Baptist where wool-sack tombs and other historic relics are on display. After a little free time, you’ll continue to Bibury, a dwelling that earned itself “the prettiest village in England” moniker.
    Stroll alongside its 17th-century Arlington Row cottages, and admire the fish-filled streams and the village green. Back aboard your transport, you’ll venture higher into the Coln Valley and along the Roman Fosse Way.
    Call in at the ancient church at Coln St. Dennis, then pass through Bourton-on-the-Water, the so-called little Venice of the Cotswolds. Gaze over the stone bridges as you meander through the hills to the Cotswold’s highest town: Stow-on-the-Wold. Enjoy free time here to explore the market square, then relax over lunch at one of England’s oldest inns.
    In the afternoon, you’ll travel to Woodstock for a visit to Blenheim Palace. The birthplace of Churchill, the palace also made its name in more recent years as a filming site from Downton Abbey. Learn about the building’s history and elaborate gardens, and visit the dining hall, library, and even the room where Churchill was born.
    Your day trip ends with a drop-off at London’s Victoria train station in the early evening.

    I am very, sorely, disappointed. I was expecting a higher standard of service, not of course as if I had had booked a private tour, but above than the tours offered by the big companies such as Evans or Golden Tours. The timing announced on...More
