Small Group 2 day Oxford, the Cotswolds and Stratford on Avon Day Tour From London Ticketing

Why choose this small group tour?

This tour is for those who want the reassurance of an experienced tour leader, the convenience of door to door transport but want flexibility to choose the aspects at each destination you want to see at a pace suitable for you individually.


Outside Oxford and Bath all the places you visit on these tour are hard to get to using public transport. The main alternative is to hire a car and given the country lanes and roads used during much of this tour its easy to miss the highlights of the place you are visiting.

 

Admissions are not included, you can pick and choose what you want to see at the pace you want to see them with advice and guidance from the driver-guide.

The driver-guide is there to tell stories, give insights and answer your questions. Once at a destination it will vary how much if any guiding is performed by the driver-guide, the accent is to enable you to see and experience what is most rewarding for you personally within a small group.
