Pass By: University of Oxford, University Offices 1 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD England

The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. There is evidence of teaching as early as 1096,[2] making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation.[2][12] It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.[2] After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge.[13] The two 'ancient universities' are frequently jointly called 'Oxbridge'. The history and influence of the University of Oxford has made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

This was an excellent day-long bus tour to the Midlands. Warwick Castle is an eye opener as a genuine Norman castle. Stratford upon Avon us a delight and the focus on Shakespeare is both interesting and enlightening. Oxford is always a treat. The guide was both informative, interesting and very approachable. An accommodating driver added to the experience. A very worthwhile tour.

A great day in the English countryside with a well informed guide and experienced coach driver. The visit to Warwick castle was good. Great history. Oxford was good and the fact that the guide was a native was a treat. The Cotswalds were beautiful even on a dreary winter day. Very good tour.

Our guide, Katya, was incredible. Her knowledge of the intricate British history was profound. As former professional guides and tour company owners my wife and I were greatly impressed. Her driver navigated the countryside and motorways with professional skills second to none. Evan Evans should be proud to have such professionals in their employ. Warmest regards to all.

Our tour guide's knowledge was exceptional and with his humorous remarks and genuine interest in the group making the most of the journey the tour was made worthwhile. We would highly recommend the tour, the tour group Evans and the tour guide whose name escapes me (Sunday 9 June 2019).

We did this tour on our last full day in London. We were ready to get out of town and the tour was the perfect activity for our family of 6. Sheila was our guide and Kevin the driver. Sheila was so lovely and informative. She really made the entire journey lively and fun - including the driving portion of the tour. We all learned so much and would recommend this tour highly.

Warwick castle - lots of fun - Stratford-upon-Avon - quaint town with a lot of character and Oxford - such great architecture! We thoroughly enjoyed this trip!

Definitely select this tour to include WARWICK CASTLE. Stratford and Oxford were wonderful stops and the drive through the countryside was very enjoyable.

Trip went as described. It left from Victoria Bus Station, which is near the Victoria Tube station. If you want to walk high up along the towers at Warwick, do it when you first arrive, since it gets crowded later. We enjoyed seeing actors outside of Shakespeare's home perform famous scenes, near the garden. There is a nice bakery/cafe down the street for lunch in Stratford.

Long day to include the ambitious itiniary but a pleasant tour with a nice bus and a friendly and knowledgeable guide.
• Submitted 03 Jul 2019
This tour was a great overview of English country side. This day tour was well organized and it was in both English and Spanish. I did the tour solo and I had plenty of time to visit Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, and purchased souvenirs. The tour did not have any stop at the Cotswolds, but I got to see the scenic villages from the bus window. Overall, I had a great day exploring the central side of England, and I would definitely recommend this tour.
