An absolute must!! Day was fabulous, couldn’t recommend enough! Very professional, knowledgeable but fun tour guide! Allocated times were great!! A must see for fans!!
Our guide and driver, Caroline and Ray, were fantastic! It was my dream to visit Highclere Castle and tour the areas that Downton Abbey were filmed. The tour was very enjoyable and Caroline's enthusiasm and knowledge were the highlight of the tour. The tour was the perfect length, and the locations were great. I would highly recommend this tour, and if you are lucky to have Caroline and Ray as your guide/driver, you will not be disappointed!
This was a small group tour with a dynamic and very personable tour guide, Eva. Eva was very knowledgeable about the Downtown Abbey series and Highclere Castle...it's history, owners, etc. One of the best tours we have taken. Thank you
This was a great tour and an Amazing Guide!, The trip was all things Downton. episodes on DVR, Games, bits of Trivia, Katherine was super fun, knowledgeable and a great guide, would definitely recommend
Amber was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. The castle was breathtaking and went beyond expectations. It was a very fun day!
Great tour, great guide Amber did an excellent job. Incorporated the TV program into the whole day. Really enjoyed the day.
Eva was great and provided wonderful information. I loved the trivia! I didn't feel rushed in either of the locations.
We enjoyed our tour of Highclaire Castle and the town a Bampton. Our tour guide, whose name escapes me at the moment, was fabulous and provided many extra tidbits about the filming and the story lines. A most enjoyable day except for the coach was not the most comfortable. We took the smaller coach thinking we wouldn't be in such a large group, thinking we'd get more personalized attention, which was accurate. However, I ended up sitting all the way in the back in the corner, not enough leg room or seat room, very uncomfortable.
Overall the tour is good with plenty of time to explore the castle and grounds there are great places to have lunch set out in the gardens. Eva made the trip to and back from London fun with stories and quizzes
The sights to see were enchanting. It was fun taking a step back through Hollywood to the early parts of the 20th Century.
The drive back to London was harrowing. I will blame some of it on poorly maintained country roads. I will blame some of it on a woefully lacking suspension system in the bus. And I will put a lot of the blame on them irresponsible driver, who went to fast over many of the streets which resulted in several of the passengers being bounced out of their seats, despite wearing seatbelts. There were several occasions where the passengers yelled and screamed at the driver to slow down. Well I don’t think any of us ever were in danger, his reckless driving left several of the passengers scared.
