We weren’t very impressed with this excursion. The weather was terrible all day and that likely played a part. Mostly, our tour guide didn’t let us know what we should do at each stop (shop, eat, explore) so we ended up wasting our time at a stop where we should have shopped by eating lunch and then the next stop had no shops/very little to see. Just felt very ill-informed as to what was in store at each stop. Also would have been nice to have been told what some options to avoid the weather could have been. We spent a majority of the day in the van and really didn’t see much. We were disappointed as we were so excited to see the Cotswolds.

A very nice trip and knowledgeable tour guide. The bus departed in time. and we were given enough time to walk on our own.

The Cotswolds and Oxford are stunning to look at yes, but our guide Robert really did his best to give a bit more depth to it. He knew so many little things you wouldn’t get to know elsewhere and it made all the difference. He even managed to stay calm in London traffic and had his playlist going in the background, made the way back so much more enjoyable!

Graham was an amazing guide. I highly recommend Rabbie’s Tours. The coaches are comfy, small, and perfect for a small group tour. We hit up two towns in the Cotswolds and Oxford. It was the perfect day tour.

What an absolutely wonderful day. The Cotswolds and the small town were so charming. I was amazed at how everything seemed exactly as it must have been so many years ago, with the exception of the vehicles and electricity haha. Oxford was amazing and exactly as I’d hoped it would be. I really liked getting to explore it on my own with the help of the excellent map provided by our driver. Speak of our driver, he was warm, friendly, and engaging. You could tell he did this tour a lot, because his knowledge was great, and his recommendations in town were spot-on. This was a great ALL-DAY excursion, and the weather was perfect!

Our driver was excellent! Barney is well travelled and full of humorous commentary. He navigated the heavy traffic City streets and curvy country roads in the rain like a pro! He shares an excellent British playlist while riding in the van. I wish we could have gone to more villages in the Cotswolds rather than spend over 2hrs in Oxford.
