What a great day! My husband and I loved the info on this tour. I am an author and especially loved seeing the Shakespeare home and town. The house was huge! Monica was amazing with her info and kindness on what was a very cold day. Nothing stopped her. Oxford was much better than I even thought. We fell in love with the city and didn’t expect that. The castle was just ok, but we have been to others that we compared it to (if not, you may love it). The bus driver was also great for all the maneuvers he needed to do (thanks Kevin). This was a great day away, especially learning all about the Cotswolds. Very worth the money.

I have been on many tours with Evans & Evans, however this was a disappointment. We did not get to the Cotswolds. This trip needs to be divided up. Oxford was extremely disappointment, going to school there and knowing a lot of great places to see, would have been enjoyable instead of a circle naming buildings. Along with everything closed because of being so late. Warwick Castle was great and would have loved to see more

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for the feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the tour, especially considering you have been on several tours with us in the past. This sort of information is extremely valuable to us as it allows us to make more informed decisions on our product and the content of our tours. Would you be able to send us an email to reservations@evanevanstours.co.uk with your reservation number so we can establish which date you travelled? It would also be good to get more specifics on how you found the tour of Oxford disappointing so that we can bring this up with the guide as the tour should never just be a circular tour naming the buildings. With regards to the Cotswolds this is a drive through which is perhaps why you feel as though you didn’t make it there – we do have the fact that it is a drive through tour on our website however we are looking into ways to make this clearer. Thank you so much again and we look forward to hearing from you. Evan Evans Tours

Do NOT book this tour if you want to be sure you're on a tour that will run. Despite gimmicks on booking website that it is "likely to sell out" or something similar, we booked this tour for two people and the tour was canceled just two days before it was set to run. There we were, stuck in a foreign country with limited internet now without a tour. Unfortunately, no other companies were running similar tours that day. When you base your vacation around pre-planned tours, they really need to run, or you are totally stuck. I highly recommend Rabbie's tours and the London Bus. We took other tours with them. Despite only having 3 and 10 people on the trips, respectively, the both ran as they guarantee that they will. The 3 person tour was a 3-day tour in Scotland where they clearly were losing money by running it, but they stuck to their guarantee and did. So if you want a tour that will definitely run, book Rabbie's or the London Bus, both of which are small businesses who work hard for their business.

Regarding the itinerary, we would up renting a car and attempting to replicate the tour. What we found is that this tour has too many items. The Evan Evans tour only visits Warwick castle for a little over an hour. When we were there, we spent over four hours there, including seeing the amazing birds of prey show (do not miss that). The entry fee which you will either have to pay for or pre-pay in the booking for is a lot--almost 30 pounds. There is so much to see there that for that price, you will want more time than going on this tour provides. There is no good way to replicate it with public transportation, but if you are willing, rent a car and do this on your own. Or better yet, choose a better tour company that has maybe 2 or 3 of these places so that you can spend more time there. If you have a lot of time in the London area, make Warwick castle it's own full day. You can take a train there, get there at opening, and enjoy all that is offered. You can no doubt fill a whole day at the castle and the surrounding village.

In short, do not book this tour. Evan Evans does not have a guarantee it will run, and even if they hadn't canceled on us, we realized after the fact that the itinerary has too much on it and you need more time at Warwick castle.

Dear Guest, First of all thank you very much for providing us with your feedback and taking the time to leave us a review. We take all reviews, either positive or negative, very seriously and use them to formulate our strategy for years to come. We are incredibly sorry that we were unable to operate the tour to Warwick, Stratford and Oxford on your original booking date. As I’m sure you know, the travel industry is under a lot of pressure, and with very few international tourists visiting we’re not always able to operate every tour date. When this happens, we give as much notice as possible, which is usually several days in advance of the departure date, and we offer guests the option to travel with us on the next available tour date, to switch to another tour, or a full refund. We are sorry to hear that you did not want to go with the alternatives that were offered. You should have received a full refund along with our apologies, however if you do have any further questions or concerns then please call (02079501777) or email us (reservations@evanevanstours.co.uk). Best wishes, Evan Evans Team

Warwick Castle, Stratford upon Avon, the Cotswolds, and Oxford. This tour was so memorable! Our guide, Sheila, was so knowledgeable and pleasant. She made the drive go quickly because she gave information on the areas as we were going to each location. Then she prepared us for what we would be touring before we arrived. We could just enjoy the sites because we knew the best places to see and the history of each. We were very clearly given the time for each stop and it worked out well. Our bus driver, Joe, drove carefully and got us back to London in good time. Sheila checked with all the tour members to see where we were staying in London and found us the best drop-off locations. That was much appreciated on a cold and rainy day!

Loved Oxford, highly recommend. Stratford-upon Avon, very lovely, enjoyed every moment I was there. Warwick Castle, a little freaky at first because they have Madame Thousseau like wax characters in every room (to make everything seem more realistic). Once you get used to these very life like wax humans acting as if they are going about their day, it's pretty cool. It really give you an idea of what life was like for the family that lived in the house back in the day. Highly recommend .

I really enjoyed this tour. My mother and I were traveling around London, and knew we really wanted to see Oxford, the Cotswolds, and Stratford-upon-Avon. Unfortunately, it's difficult to get to all these places from London on your own. This tour was a great solution. The tour guides were knowledgable and the stops were lengthy enough to be meaningful but not so long you were bored. We got ample free time, and the bus was clean and comfortable. Would recommend!
