Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Oxford, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England

Your first stop is Oxford, where you have time to explore the precincts of the many colleges, climb one of the vantage points to take in the skyline, or see the art and antiquities collections in the Ashmolean Museum. The choice is yours.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Burford, Burford, Cotswolds, England

Our next stop is in Burford, the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds’. It’s a small market town with enormous character and a huge history. The main street is lined with gorgeously quaint cottages and properties. You have time here to take in the local charm and hospitality; and if you’re hungry, you can try a traditional English ‘Afternoon Tea’.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Bibury, Bibury, Cotswolds, England

Finally, you make the short journey to Bibury, described by William Morris as the prettiest village in England, and the place that Henry T Ford wished to dismantle and ship back to the USA.

Here we have time to stroll past the famous and fairytale-like Arlington Row. After a full day exploring the city of Oxford and the villages of the Cotswolds we’ll embark on the comfortable return journey to London.

Duration: 45 minutes

Graham was a great driver and guide while in van. Always happy. You are on your own at the three towns visited which is not a problem at all.

The tour itself is amazing but I have to start with raving about our tour guide Graham as you honestly can’t get better than him. We have been in Europe a few weeks and done lots of awesome tours, they are long days and I always found myself sort of counting down the hours at the end, this was not the case with Graham. For the first time I didn’t refer down to the time once because he made it so enjoyable. He had the best personality, enthusiasm and stories for the bus rides that it made them just fly by, and this tour is also good because there isn’t that much driving and the day is broken up really well. There are 3 stops which is a good amount for a tour and they are all really worth it, there’s no just stopping for the sake of adding another thing to the tour. The stops included some of the most beautiful, cutest and quaint towns in the world, they are the reason I love England so much and they are places you would normally only see on TV. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this tour, it was perfect and next time I am in England I will go with Rabbie’s again based on what tours Graham will be the guide for. Thank you Graham, you are the best tour guide either of us have ever had.

This tour was great! My guide, Barney, was very knowledgeable and the places we visited were gorgeous. Barney recommended a few cake shops in Burford and the one I went to was great!

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!

Great guides-well planned and executed itinerary! Small group made for better exits and re-entries. Right level of narration and tips/hints about the venues.
