Wonderful historical tour
Sep 2020
Tailored Tours really lives up to their name. My wife and I really liked the idea of this trip to celebrate our 10th anniversary but weren’t fussed about going into Oxford as we’d both been there before and neither of us were interested in the church. We called them up and Sam suggested a stop at Warwick castle instead. You don’t get this level of flexibility normally so we were both really happy.
This was a good start and things only got better. We were picked up from our hotel by Oz – our private tour guide for the day – and set off for Stratford. Along the way Oz gave us little snippets of information that gave context and meaning to everything we saw. Ever wondered where the phrase ‘hitting the hay’ comes from? Take this tour and you’ll find out first hand.
The trip to Warwick castle was a great addition to the tour and really made our day. The views from the top were stunning and we were really lucky with the weather.
Oz let us take our time and look round and we even took in the birds of prey show – a real highlight.
On the drive back, we still managed to learn fascinating new things about Oxford which gave us a whole new perspective on a city we’d been to so many times and thought we knew inside and out!
We finished off the day as it began – being dropped off back at our hotel. A truly magnificent day out and a wonderful historical tour!

Hi Mick, thanks for the review. We're glad that Sam could create a tour that really suited your personal needs. Oz is a real history buff and it sounds like you enjoyed his company too! Thanks again, hopefully we'll see you again in the future for more bespoke tours!

Amazing Trip that Exceeded Expectations!
Oct 2019
We had an amazing trip to Stratford Upon Avon and the Cotswolds with Oz our guide. The trip was very professional and very well organized. Oz really knows his way around the area and his depth of knowledge of the history of the locations is fantastic. You could not ask for a better guide. Our trip was a little different because we asked not to go to Oxford and spend more time in the Cotswolds.
Oz picked us up on time and the van was very comfortable. It’s a long drive out to Stratford Upon Avon, but Oz kicks things off sharing interesting history of areas you pass on the way out that really helps to pass the time.
I really liked that we got to Stratford Upon Avon earlier than all the big tour busses meaning we could enjoy the city before it was swamped! The drive through the Cotswolds is beautiful. I really enjoyed the smaller towns we visited that on a larger tour bus would not have been possible due to the small roads you have to take to get to them. We got some beautiful pictures of the area particularly in the smaller towns. Our lunch location that was picked out was fantastic. It was a great pub experience. We even got to stop by the Church that is believed to be the inspiration for JRR Tolkien’s doors to Moria came from which I particularly enjoyed. We also made a quick stop to the town used for Downton Abbey’s Village scenes.
You really can’t go wrong with this company. Many years ago, I did a similar trip with another company out to Stonehenge and though it was enjoyable it was no where near as good as this one with Oz. We spent five days in England, and we all reflected about how much fun the trip with Tailored Tours was. It was a hit for all of us.

Thank you so much for your sharing your feedback in such an insightful and in depth manner, we really appreciate it! Oz is one of our top guides and has lots of stories to tell about British History so we're glad you made the most out of his knowledge! We're also very happy that you made the most of having a private tour to yourself and amended the itinerary as we suggest you can online. The Cotswolds is such a vast area, so we're happy you made the most by extending your time here instead of visiting Oxford. We're happy to hear that all 8 of you found our tour van very comfortable, as well as entertained by Oz on the long journey to Stratford. Please do get in touch if you return to London and we'd be happy to plan another wonderful excursion for you!
