I went with my wife (having never seen the show) but still found it interesting. With her affection for the series I know she got much more out of it but I enjoyed things as well. It is a long day but things were well organized, a nice tour bus, and friendly guide. Well done.

If you're a Downton Abbey fan, this tour will not disappoint you. The only negative was not being able to take photos inside the lovely castle. We toured the castle and grounds, and then visited the gift shop and had lunch in the lovely area behind the castle. Beware of the bees if you're eating anything sweet there! We ordered scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. As soon as we opened the jam, a dozen or more bees descended upon us. They were aggressive and could not be shooed away. Trying to move away from them was useless, too. They followed us. In the end, we were unable to eat the scones because of the bees swarming on them. We toured the very charming and quaint village of Bampton where Downton Abbey village scenes are filmed before going to the castle.. A funny thing happened during our walking tour of the village. A police car kept driving slowly through the streets, obviously looking for someone or something. Our tour guide commented that she'd never seen police in Bamption in all the dozen of tours she'd led in the village. Some tour members were speculating that perhaps they were looking for a thief who stolen from one of the shops. After several trips up and down the street, the police car stopped beside our group and asked if we'd seen a little dog. All the searching and commotion was for a wayward pup! Many thanks to our guide, Catherine, and our driver for making our day very enjoyable.

Our tour guide Michael was fantastic and the entire tour will be remembered as a highlight of our trip for many years to come! Bampton is a quaint village and I loved seeing inside the 1000 year old church as we made our way to Highclare. The Secret Garden on the grounds of Highclare should not be missed!

Highclere castle was amazing. The day was great The church at bampton was lovely. The only downside was the dvd didn't work on our coach so we couldn't watch the first and last episodes as promised. This didn't spoil our day though as Stuart (the tour guide) was so entertaining.

I was attending the trip Downton Abbey and Village Small Group Tour on Thursday, July 28 2022. I did enjoy the trip very much. The bus was comfortable and the driver drives nice. I must say that the guide on the tour did a very good job. He did speak very clearly so even though I’m hearing impaired I had no trouble hearing what he said. He told us he grew up not far from Bampton, the village from Downton Abbey, so he knew the area. First we drove to Bampton and he showed us the church and other buildings used in Downton Abbey. Then we drove to Highclere Castle. We had 3 hours to spend at the castle and that was enough. We could eat some lunch there and take the trip trough the castle to see the rooms famous from the series. Then we had good time to walk around in the park around the castle, and that was very nice. I will highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves Downton Abbey!

This tour was very well planned by the guide Stewart. As we traveled to the village and Downtown Abbey, we didn’t wait in long lines or felt in a rush. He gave us ample time to walk the grounds and enjoy the beauty of Downton Abbey.

Touring the house was definitely the highlight for us. They had large photos from the filming of the show in the rooms where they were filmed. This really brought Downton Abbey into clearer focus for us.
