Spent too much time at Warwick Castle and Stratford leaving not enough time to explore Oxford. I specifically asked before booking if the tour would visit the Bodleian Library in Oxford and was told it did, but we were not taken inside it. We also didn't drive through much of the Cotswalds. The cold box lunch was absolutely terrible. The walking pace of the tour was way too fast for me. I was out of breath the whole time. At the end of the tour I didn't appreciate the tour guide's plea for tips.

I'll never purchase your tour
Reply From Gray Line:

Thank you for taking the time to review our service. Unfortunately, we keep GPS trackers on our busses; while we do see that we did have a delay (30 minutes) during the pickups as the end of December is a busy time in London, this never approached 2 hours as you feel it did. We think you may be referring to the 2 hours  between being picked up at your hotel (7.30am) and when they left Victoria Station which would have been 2 hours-- but this is expected when a complimentary pick-up is included. We apologize for any confusion, and wish you the best of luck in your future travels.
