Oxford was a nice town but the time was not enough to explore the whole town, will definitely want to go again but next time maybe go for a full day at least. View from St Mary's chapel was superb. Cotswold trip was really nice, John the guide walked us around Bibury and told us interesting stories about some of the houses there. The mini coach was comfortable except for the seat belt, which made your side a bit sore. John the guide cum driver had a good sense of humour.

This was my first time going to Cotswolds and the place exceeds expectations. How beautiful and serene Cotswolds is! Additionally, our guide Christo turned the trip into an experience. His articulated, comprehensive and humorous commentary kept us entertained through out the journey. So, thank you to Christo and getyourguide for a lovely trip.

Recommended for travelers who can't decide which area of Oxford & Cotswold to visit. Guide will take you to some of the most popular sites (nearby St. Mary's church, Bibury, and Burford) and introduce the detailed backgrounds of the places, so you don't need to plan/study the sightseeing places in advance. Details of places are explained in the bus on the way to the sites, and when you arrive the sites, you can travel on your own and free to spend more time on the places you like. As usual tour with guides does, there is time limit for each site (Oxford, Bibury and Burford), so it's better to think the list of priority to visit in the bus.
