This was a very nice tour and even though it takes 90 mins or so to get out there, it is well worth it; I encourage people to go see it

This tour was great! If you're a fan of the show, it's a must do! We had Frank as our guide and a Christian as the driver. Frank was knowledgeable, friendly, whitty, and a pleasure to listen to! Christian made sure we were everywhere that we needed to be in a safe and timely fashion! Thank you to you both! We had a great time!

What a treat to enter "Downton Abbey", Highclere Castle! Gorgeous while being a family's home as well. Those who are fans of the series will love the opportunity to see the castle as well as the small town which served as the locale of other scenes. Not everyone, of course, knows the program, but it's still wonderful to see. For some, of course, the town and colleges of Oxford are the draw. Time to choose which places to tour there, with good suggestions from the well informed, positive and energetic guide. Our bus driver, Andreas, was amazing on the tight roads and roundabouts. It's a long day, but interesting in a number of ways. Some tours advertise Downton, but don't get you into the home, which has to be SO disappointing when people don't realize this until too late. This is the real deal, with plenty of time to savor the house and lovely acres of surrounding land and gardens.

Outstanding Tour Host and Driver! Loved the Oxford and Brampton town visits. Just enough time for quick tour and time on our own.
Enjoyed seeing everything from Highclere Castle and the surrounding grounds. Also a highlight was meeting the Countess!
Nothing i would change about the tour except for the pickup experience at the terminal. Too much commotion and overcrowding for all the different tours leaving from that small area.

This was our second trip to Highclere, our first coming 4 years prior. If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, this is obviously what you want. Our tour guide, Frank, was knowledgeable and entertaining and helped add a dimension of enjoyment to the outing. Highly recommend this to any Downton fans, anyone looking to know more of the Carnarvons, or anyone interested in seeing a beautiful castle in a scenic English landscape.

The weather on the Sunday we visited Bampton, Oxfordshire, was perfect for a stroll down the main street. Bampton, a quaint little village, provided most of the backdrop in the Downton village.

What a nice surprise to find such pretty grounds and gardens at Highclere. Not sure why they don't show them on t.v.
