If you're looking for a relaxed day out from busy London town, this will be a great option. In Blenheim palace you will have ...a plenty of time to admire the beautiful decor and explore its garden. Also we really enjoyed the time in the small villages in Cotswolds. The tour guide Kevin was very informative and quirky, and we all enjoyed his talk throughout the tour. The coach was very comfortable and the tour was well organized. more
