This tour was an absolute wonderful experience!! It was especially made so by our amazing tour guide! She’d been doing it for so long and knew all the great spots to point out, take pictures, recall scenes in the show, and showed us her special photo album. She made the tour even more special by playing the last episode while traveling to and from. And especially knocked it out of the park by queuing the DA theme as we approached the castle. It was breathtaking and gave you chills!! We were able to stroll the grounds at leisure, shop, eat and then walk around the house when your specific entrance time was called. If you loved DA, this is especially the tour for you!! It was absolutely wonderful!!
So fun to see Downton Abbey locations, including the real-life farm that stands in for Yew Tree Farm in the show, the town where the village scenes were filmed, and of course Highclere Castle itself. The tour was well-organized and our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. Tour bus was comfortable, with cushioned seats and large windows for easy viewing. We had a great time!
This tour is a must for Downton Abbey fans! Our guide, Andrew was awesome and told great stories along the way. We loved it!!
Andrew, tour guide, very knowledgeable. Downton Abbry does not disappoint. Countryside is so beautiful. Worth every penny!
Andrew our guide was outstanding! The stops were along the way were great. But getting to Highclere was the highlight. Loved the entire experience!
An incredible tour for the Downton Abbey lover! A full day packed with history and beauty. I highly recommend it!
FANTASTIC TOUR!!! Apart from the very early start.
But really, if you love Downton Abbey, you must do this tour.
Definitely spent alot of time in and around the house and gardens. The lunch and morning tea was very nice too.
Do yourself a favour and book the tour.
Comfortable ride, knowledgeable guide, adequate time at each locale.
Seeing Highclere, in person, was definitely a highlight of my stay in England. I highly recommend this tour!
I enjoyed this tour because I really wanted to visit Highclere Castle, but I was disappointed in its execution. The bus was late to pick us up from the specified location and then we spent another hour traveling to other locations in London to pick up other passengers. Interestingly, those of us who were at the original location were not given any other option so when the bus went by my hotel 45 minutes later I wondered why I could not have been picked up there.
I wish we could have had more time at Highclere with more information about the surroundings and perhaps a guided tour of that area. Brampton and the farm were not as important to me and we could have spent less time in those locations.
Our guide was good . Our driver managed the bus through the traffic, but made me nervous by carrying on a conversation with one of the passengers. When he stood up while driving to get her a phone charger I will admit I was a bit unnerved.
I felt that overall it was a lot of money to pay for a fairly bare bones tour.
