The school that Shakespeare attended with the talk from the schoolmaster was very interesting and informative.

Had a wonderful time with Tisha and Armando on our trip to Cotswolds and Stratford upon Avon. Tisha had great stories to tell us throughout the journey, her sense of humor kept us awake on the misty Sunday morning. We were given enough time to explore each place and take pictures. Tisha individually spoke to each of us to understand and guide us if we needed help on our way back home, as the point to disembark was different from our boarding point. Thank you Golden Tours, Tisha and Armando for such a lovely day. Hope to meet again in future. #goldentours #cotswolds_stratforduponavon

It had loads to cover but everything about this trip was beautiful - you got transported to a different era and it remained like that the whole day. The trip made me crave to come back again to these places and this time with more time in hand! Tich - our tour guide was sweet and excellent in sharing history and facts about this place. Loved my day on this tour :)

Guider and driver are very great, so humorous. But we had to buy tickets in Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and couldn’t visit Shakespeare’s Schoolroom although these places were included in our booking email. We don’t understand what it happened.

Peter was excellent. He was personable and very knowledgeable. Stratford pedestrian area was cool to walk around, esp the oldest bar in London, Garrick’s. We loved Shakespeare's School , the school master was awesome. Cotswold was a bit of a bust. Not much to see. Loved Ann Hathaways House, very cool We needed to spend more time in Stratford.

I had a wonderful time on this tour. The Cotswolds were beautiful despite the drought. The Shakespeare portion of the tour was a lot of fun. Anne Hathaway's house was beautiful and I learned a lot about her and Shakespeare's life together. The next stop Shakespeare's School was so much fun! The school master made us learn as of we were his students! Lol The end of the tour Shakespeare's home was the icing on the cake. It was wonderful to be in the home that the Bard lived in. To walk in his shoes and learn about the way he lived. The tour is long but definitely worth it. We were not hurried. It was the perfect amount of time. Our guide Danxia and our driver Mario were amazing!!! Both were very friendly. Mario was a good and thoughtful driver . Danxia was very knowledgeable and entertaining. But she also gave us rest times in between telling us about the history so we had time to absorb everything. She was wonderful! They both really made the experience.
