Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 2JD, UK

Your first stop is Oxford, where you have time to explore the precincts of the many colleges, climb one of the vantage points to take in the skyline, or see the art and antiquities collections in the Ashmolean Museum. The choice is yours.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Minster Lovell Hall & Dovecote, Minster Road, Minster Lovell, Witney England

Ruined medieval manor house located on the banks of the River Windrush. Originally built by the Lovell family (the local landowners, who gave their name to the village)
Local legend tells of how Francis Lovell (the last of the family) went into hiding after the defeat of Richard III in 1485, allegedly in a secret chamber in the grounds of Minster Lovell Hall, the knowledge of his whereabouts known only by a faithful servant who unexpectedly died; skeletal remains, presumed to be Lovell’s, were discovered in the 1700s…

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Burford Library 86A High Street, Burford OX18 4QF England

Our next stop is in Burford, the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds’. It’s a small market town with enormous character and a huge history. The main street is lined with gorgeously quaint cottages and properties.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Arlington Row, Awkward Hill, Cirencester GL7 5NJ, UK

Finally, you make the short journey to Bibury, described by William Morris as the prettiest village in England, and the place that Henry T Ford wished to dismantle and ship back to the USA.

Here we have time to stroll past the famous and fairytale-like Arlington Row. After a full day exploring the city of Oxford and the villages of the Cotswolds we’ll embark on the comfortable return journey to London.

The driver was really kind, the tour itself it’s a bit boring due to the much time spent on the bus, Bibury its Just a street and the trout farm si the only thing that’s interesting to see but we didn’t have time. Oxford it’s beautiful but quite everything is closed to visitors.

The Cotswolds were beautiful and ample time was spent. At the village stops.
Oxford was an interesting visit - great history and architecture, beautiful grounds but the city was quite commercialized and crowded. Less time could have been allotted to this stop.
Our guide was excellent - easy going, informative, patient.
Highly recommend this tour.

Dan was an excellent tour guide, full of history facts, little stories with current facts thrown in. He was very attentive to my husband who sometimes needed a little. Would encourage anyone interested in seeing the Cotswold villages and countryside on a tight schedule.
