The English Bus tour to the Cotswolds, Stratford Upon Avon and Oxford was top notch. Our guide was very knowledgeable and told us great historical stories. It was a perfect day.

I was so lucky to have gone on such a small group tour. Stratford Upon Avon and driving through the narrow lanes of the Cotswolds were my favorite part of the tour. Thank you for a personalized trip Andy and Chris for answering all my questions!!

We had an amazing day with Johny as our tour guide! The places we visited during our tour (Stratford-upon-Avon, cotswolds and Oxford) were greatly enjoyable and offered very different sceneries. Coming in to this tour I did not know (or had ever taken the time to care) about Shakespeare, but visiting his birth town and learning about him through Johny was both highly intriguing and entertaining. Stratford was also a very picturesque and charming town with a Christmas shop that both me and my wife absolutely loved. Cotswolds was just as beautiful as you hoped the english countryside would be and Oxford looked majestic with it's buildings lingering around you. The free time we got throughout the day were evenly spread out and Johny's recommendations of snacks and food were always good. Johny held up a great conversation with us in the bus which made the 12 hours we spent together swiftly go by. We learned about sights, Johny's life and The English bus as well as each other. If you're ever in London, take the time to use this service, it's definitely worth it!

Andy was excellent- very knowledgeable, personable and pleasant! We say everything I wanted to see and more and it was a very pleasant ride. The van was very comfortable and there were only 3 of us in the trip! Very mush enjoyed it and will take another tour from this company next time I'm in London!

The experience was wonderful! Johny, our driver was funny, cunning and a great conversationalist. He drove us safely to our destinations (Cotswold, Stratford and Oxford) and made us all feel great throughout our journey. We learned a lot through Johny's knowledge and information and saw some spectacular views. Would highly recommend.
