Good, but..

The tour was well run and very informative, but there just wasn't enough time to see each location. I wouldn't even mention The Cotswolds in this tour since we basically rode down a street and was told to look at the thatched roof homes. Even though our tour guide had a heavy Spanish accent we were able to get the main ideas of what he was telling us. He did good job keeping us on schedule. I just missed not being able to spend more time in Stratford and not being able to go inside the Bodliean Library in Oxford.

Good tour

A great tour of the places I wanted to see and in my case come back to. Our guide Kingsley was very good, also in telling you all the extras you want to know i.e. where the expression its raining cats and dogs comes from etc. The schedule of the tour could by my standards be a little better distributed. I would have liked more time at The Cotswolds part which I feel we flew through more or less. An eloge to our driver Koly. Safe driving - we felt we were in good hands the whole trip and I also observed sitting close by how well he adapted his smooth driving to the traffic around us.

Excellent if you're pressed for time!

Excellent if you're pressed for time! Also probably the cheapest option to see all the 3 landmarks! However, ewerywhere it's a bit of a rush. No time to fully appreciate Windsor & Stonehenge, but sufficient time toget the feeling of them. Toby was a great guide (!), making everyone comfortable and well-informed.
