Frank and Omar were fabulous! Frank gave us lots of good information and great ideas on how to enjoy London. To see where a very popular show was filmed was in credit. To tour Oxford amazing! One should try and participate in this tour.

The series and all the people came to life by visiting Highclere Castle. It was wonderful to learn the family really does use the house and all the furniture as is. The grounds and trees are massive and beautiful!

This was a wonderful tour of Highclere Castle. Downton Abbey fans would not want to miss. Thoroughly enjoyed Oxford and Brampton Village. Our guide was Claire and she was so interesting to talk with. A very knowledgeable and personable lady. A highlight for sure’

This was a wonderful trip - well organized - just lots and lots of fun! The only issue I had is that I was not told beforehand that you could not take any photos inside Downton Abbey which was disappointing😔 but what a lovely trip - what a beautiful place to visit - I almost had tears in my eyes when I saw the castle for the first time🥲 I highly recommend this to all of you Downton Abbey fans! ❤️

This tour was a highlight of our trip! Carol was an amazing guide who provided us with loads of information on Oxford, Bampton, Highclere, and of course Downton Abbey. She kept us on track and made sure there was something for everyone. We absolutely loved each part of the tour and even though it was 11 hours it went by fast! Cannot recommend this trip enough.

Wow!!! This trip was incredible. The driver (Omar) was amazing and the guide (Frank) was informative, funny, personable and all-around pleasant!!! We loved every minute of it. There is a lot of bus time, but of course there is since we covered so much ground. Seeing the village of Bampton was a highlight. I can’t recommend it more if you’re a Downtown Abbey fan!:)

As Highclere Castle isn’t conveniently close to public transportation, I picked this tour with 2 other stops in Oxford and Bampton. Our guide Carol was extremely knowledgeable, and her commentary on the walking tours in Oxford and Bampton, and while along the way in the bus, added to my enjoyment of the day. For those not interested in the walking tours, she was not offended by a choice to use the time for exploration on your own. We all had some time on our own after the walking tours. The time at Highclere Castle may be less than I would have liked (we had 2 hours), but we were told the owners strictly enforce arrival times and the the flow of people. I spent so much time in the house and shop that, sadly, I never made it to the gardens. Plan accordingly! There was not a specific lunch stop, but there was time in Oxford for a quick lunch and other opportunities to pick up snacks to eat on the bus (no hot food allowed on bus). It was a long day, but the 3 stops and the time on the bus through the countryside were all very pleasant.
