We have spent a fantastic and unforgetable day. It was a nice and interested group of people of different nationalities. We enjoyed to visit the Blenhem Palace, the cream tea at Bouton-on-the-Water, the green lands and, of course, the village of Downton Abbey with the beatiful Church, were children were playing and were we have been so nicely welcomed. Our guide was fabulous: thank you so much, Leslie! We will remember you and all the history and stories you told us as well as your smile. The bus was very comfortable and the driver was very safe and competent. Only the rain, during the afternoon was a little unpleasant.

What a lovely excursion. Although Blenheim Palace gardens were not in bloom, the tour was worthwhile. Sheila is very knowledgeable, witty and a great tour leader. Cotswolds was enchanting and visiting the sites of the Downton Abbey village made for a wonderful tour of the English co it countryside. I highly recommend this tour and Sheila.
