Blenheim Palace Tour
Marilyn H

Enjoyed our day with visits to Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Cotswolds. Lunch was a small box lunch, advise bringing your own snacks. Seemed to be some confusion between our tour guide and Blenheim Palace for entry procedures. Could have used more time there, but hard to see everything since so far from London.

Not enough free time in Oxford and the Cotswolds. Too much free time at Blenhiem palace. Too much standing in the rain while he gathered us to talk. He could have used on the bus.

Disappointing

I expected the majority of the time to be spent at Blenheim since that is the first place listed on the tour package. Instead we were taken to Oxford first. The second stop was a small town in the Cotswolds which was very crowded midday and over-comercialized. When we finally arrived at Blenheim, we had the last two hours of the day to tour the Palace. The driver was great. The tour guy was crotchety. Lunch was a typical box lunch. Disappointing at best.

I did not know we were visiting Oxford, so that was a plus. We had a great Blue Badge guide, Geoff, and an outstanding driver, Cody. Lots of interesting historical information. Drove through the Cotswolds and spent a couple of hours in Bourton on the Water. Very nice little village. Then on to Blenheim Palace. It was so interesting, especially the parts dedicated to it as Churchill's birthplace. The box lunch was fine. I enjoyed the tour very much. As a single woman, it allowed me to visit these three areas very easily.

I did not know Oxford was included in the tour, so I was thrilled to visit that city and the colleges. I enjoyed the drive through the Cotswolds and our stop at Bourton on the Water. It was a pleasant town to stroll through. I very much enjoyed the magnificent Blenheim Palace, especially the parts dedicated to Churchill and his birth there. Our guide Geoff was an official Blue Badge Guide and he was wonderful. Our driver Cody was wonderful as well. The box lunch was fine. All in all, it was an excellent tour and I would highly recommend it!

Great Palace, awful guide

Let me start from the beginning- the appearence of the guide is important, it shows professionalism - or a lack of. Our guide was disheveled and missing front teath. She lacked historical knowledge of the cotwolds. As we went from one village to the other she gave us about 5 minutes of information, let us off the bus and instructed to be back on the bus--NO guided tour! The Palace was wonderful-we had to use the audio guide--our guide did NOT enter with us. This was the most disappointing tour of our travels.

Blenheim Palace was wonderful. It was enjoyable to go around the palace at a leisurely pace. The gardens of the palace were very picturesque. The Cotswolds were very nice too. Bourton-on-the-Water, especially, was very pretty.

Well organised, excellent tour - perfect way to see beautiful Cotswold villages on a sunny day. Plenty of time to visit Blenheim Palace and enjoy the gardens. Amusing tour guide who gave a good commentary throughout the day. Recommend this tour as you see countryside, villages, Blenheim all close to London. Nice packed lunch provided! A good day trip - enjoyed seeing the sights.

Plenty of time to see Cotswold. I went to another tour before with Cotswold and Strat upon Avon which did not have enough time to go around Cotswold so this was good. Blenheim Palace is obviously worth seeing.
