Can't say enough good about this tour and our tour guide, Barry. It was so nice to have someone who knows the area and can take pictures for us! I also have to mention and specially thank Rob Woodford who helped organize the excursion. When originally booked, there were no more tickets (end of season) for Highclere Castle tour. But through Rob's direct contact to the castle and influence we were able to secure tickets. Thanks Rob! We will always remember this trip with fond memories! Thank you!!!

Our driver was Barry. He was GREAT. We stopped all along the way and he took photos and really became our friend for the day. We stopped at sites in London, Highclere castle, and several other location stops where we enjoyed the day. We enjoyed snacks sitting in the shade at Highclere. He took us to the well hidden restaurant (it was Monday so the Pubs were mostly closed) - guess I shouldn’t mention where. Don’t want to spoil the secret. Anyway, it was a great day. THANK YOU BARRY!
