What to Expect

Explore the town with your guide, and gain insight into Shakespeare’s life and times. When your guided tour comes to an end, you have free time to explore independently. Next, head through the Cotswolds and pass honey-colored streets where time seems to stand still. Stop along the way to capture fine Cotswolds' views on camera. On route back to London, stop in Oxford, the “City of Dreaming Spires.” Here, enjoy a second guided walking tour and discover top sites of interest such as Balliol College, the Museum of the History of Science, and Sheldonian Theatre. When your guided tour ends you have free time to explore. Finally, return in comfort to central London to conclude your tour where it began.
