Oxford, Cotswold and Blenheim day trip with lunch
We did this tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The stops in Oxford and the Cotswolds are not long but having a lunch on the coach helped to save time for seeing things instead of searching for a bite to eat. Certainly, it would be better to have more time in Oxford and Cotswolds but you can only do so much in a day trip and this gave us a taste of places we were not going to have time to see otherwise. Our guide Simon and driver Peter were awesome. They made everything smooth. Simon had the perfect balance of sharing interesting and entertaining information without talking constantly and oversharing. He gave us tips to enjoy our stops that helped us make good use of the short time we had.

Blenheim palace was absolutely wonderful and two hours was needed to see house and grounds which are beautiful and extensive. The only negative was unique in that our visit coincided with the artist Cattelan's works being integrated within Bleheim. His displays in the rooms were distasteful and took away from our once in a lifetime experience to see Blenheim. It was meant to offend and be provocative but was not expected. Wish we had a warning before seeing a model of Pope hit by meteorite and full taxidermy horse hanging from ceiling... The displays end October 27th so should not impact others visiting Blenheim.

Sep 2019
This was a well-timed trip with variety and plenty. of time at the various sites. Our host, Antonio, was very well informed, pleasant and provided enjoyable commentary and helpful suggestions. Our driver, Armando, was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed this.

Last year we did the Stonehenge trip and enjoyed it as well.

Highly recommend this company and the various packages they. put together for tourists.

Cotswolds Trip a Joke
Jul 2019
We booked this Cotswolds trip 3-4 months prior to going on the tour. The date we attended was on 7/31/19. At the time of booking this trip didn't mention anything about visiting Oxford. When the tour changed, Golden didn't bother contacting us so we could cancel.

We WASTED 1-2 hours walking around Oxford campus. Yeah, it's a nice campus, but Our interest was spending time in the Cotswold towns. The tour guide didn't seem very interested in the stop either. WASTE.

Then... Once we finally got to the Cotswolds, we drove through them quickly, and didn't stop at the town that was promised on the posting (Stow-in-the-Wold). The driver and guide were worried about parking and traffic so they stopped at another town. The other town was OK, but we only had one our. I have to say, we PAY for a tour so your company can worry about traffic and parking. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT. We did go to Blenheim Palace as promised but we spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME THERE. Two hours. This whole day was a waste and wasn't what was promised to us.

Visiting Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds was amazing! The Cotswolds is a beautiful town/village that warrants a few days to visit. Blenheim Palace is gorgeous with fantastic gardens and the walk through the Oxford campus was delightful and educational - what a beautiful campus!

Our tour guide, Susan, was extremely informative and cheerful and I appreciate that we had an opportunity to visit Churchill's grave site although it was not part of the tour. I would go on this tour again in a heart beat - I highly recommend it.

Very pleasant time in Cotsworld and Blenheim Palace
Today was very bright to travel around. The weather is most important factor for travel. The other thing is how the guide lead the travellers and how well the driver drives well for a long journey. My guide, David, is full of knowledges and he answers all of our questions. Also, he is very kind, which makes me feel comfortable during the trip.
The driver Koli tried to drive safely despite a long drive, which made me feel safe and comfortable.
I was more interested in Cotsworld but Blenheim Palace was beyond expectation. It has very interesting and beautiful rooms with different kinds of concepts. And it also has stunning garden, which was good for taking a walk. So pleasant time.
As for Cotsworld, it was also great to enjoy. Very beautiful and peaceful villages, where I want to live after retirement.

The charming countryside
Took the trip from London to Cotswold and Blenheim palace during my trip in November 2017. Boarded the bus from designated spot though it was a bit difficult to find. It was a comfortable journey from then on. We started early morning and stopped for breakfast in the first village. We then proceeded to see 2 other villages before reaching Blenheim palace. Bourton on the water was the best among the villages. I feel we could have a avoided one of the other two villages to have more time for Blenheim palace and the surrounding grounds. It was a great trip overall and exploring the countryside was a lovely experience.

Lovely day in the country
Sep 2018 • Couples
We enjoyed a great day visiting the Cotswolds and Blenheim Palace. While always wanting more time to explore all the beautiful sites on the tour, it was a great way to get a good taste of the three villages visited and the Palace.the bus was comfortable and the lunch provided was more than adequate. Ellis, the driver and Sue, the guide were excellent companions on the jiourney. We enjoyed their knowledge and sense of humour. This is a trip well worth doing for a pleasant day in the English countryside.

Good introduction to the countryside
The tour guide, David, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Ali, the driver, was also really friendly and courteous.

It was perfect for the short time I have in London. The places we visited had nice sceneries. Cotswold would've been difficult to get to without going with a car, so this was a perfect find for us. The pace of the tour was also pretty nice and relaxing.

Lunchbox included was unhealthy and terrible though..

Review of Blenheim Palace and Cotwolds
Great day with David and Kirian, the driver. Except for the rain all day the tour went as planned. No one was late or left behind! Everyone was on schedule and followed time frame set by company. Lunch was ok. Not great but not bad either. Would book with them again.

escape to country side
Picked this trip mainly to sightseeing of english countryside away from london crowded summer. Guide Sue and driver Jumma were excellent. Bus with A/C. Locations were as expected and described in website Golden Tours which I found full filling their side. Lunch box! maybe you should get some snacks with you. Timing is right. Bit hot when at Blenheim palace where lots of walking is needed to enjoy gardens and lakes there. Overall it was good day escape and change of environment. Worth the money and efforts.
