Our guide, June, helped make this day trip an enjoyable experience. We traveled in a 15-person van. June was the driver and guide. We departed from Victoria Station. Victoria is a large coach and London Underground station. The Rabbie's van picked us up on Bullied Lane. Our day included stops in two Cotswold villages, Burford, Bibury, and Oxford. June provided useful background information and suggestions about what to visit in each location. We left London around 9:30 am and returned at 8 pm.

My son and I liked that it was a small van-type bus...much more friendly. We really liked our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the Cotswold and Oxford. He provided excellent advice on where to go and what to do and eat. It was a wonderful day...the weather could have been a bit warmer. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We particularly loved visiting Oxford!

The trip to Oxford felt like a bus trip only. There was minimal information about the location, history and so on. A map on how to navigate Oxford was a plus. The Cotswolds there was a bit more information provided. The driver/tour guide was friendly; he was the only positive.

Scottish driver Graham was one of the best drivers I ever had. His passion to entertain his guests made our trip perfect.

Samuel was an amazing guide. Maybe could have spent more time at oxford and less in the cotswolds. But overall great trip.

Dan was a great driver/ guide.very knowledgeable and witty. Enjoyed his effortless storytelling and chill attitude. It is a nice way to get a glimpse of English countryside but for a true experience one would definitely need more time.

Our Guide, Graham, was great. Wonderful personality and full of great information and took well care of all on the trip. Nice Coach for the ride that included fun music along the way! Graham's enthusiasm was contagious as you can tell he truly enjoys what he does. Each stop allowed us enough time to enjoy the area and the overall trip moved along well.
