Oh my goodness - Truly the highlight of our trip!! I cannot say enough about this tour. Steve was very prompt, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. I knew we were going to Bampton and Highclere but along the way he also brought us to the spot used to film when Anna goes to find Bates at The Red Lion pub. We drove right through that ford of water that her bus goes through in that scene. He also took us to another interesting old church and pointed out the graves of 3 sisters he thinks the Crawley girls may have been modeled after.
We enjoyed Bampton Village VERY much. So very neat to walk around the square and visit the site used for the hospital, which is now a lovely little souvenir shop run by volunteers. Going inside the church was an extra special treat. Just walking along the walkway with all of the old headstones - it really is like you are walking around Downton Village, it is all so familiar. Now watching the show is even more enjoyable with these real images fresh in my mind. I notice things in the show now that I saw in real life and it gives it an added thrill. There was no shortage of photo ops and Steve made sure we got plenty.
Highclere Castle is just amazing!! The furniture and portraits are just what you know and love from the show. And yes, there are blank shields on the mantle piece. No one really knows exactly why but surmise they were for future marriages. There are many interesting personal and historical photos on display of the real Carnarvon family. It was the expedition of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon that discovered King Tut's tomb and there is a very interesting Egyptian exhibit downstairs. It was the Christmas opening when we were there so there were carolers in the great hall which added to the experience.
If you love Downton Abbey this is a Must-Do tour. SO much more personal and enjoyable than a group bus tour. We truly enjoyed our interaction with our driver/guide Steve. He made sure to take plenty of pictures of us to commemorate our trip and went out of his way to find us a pub to eat on the way home. He was fun and engaging and full of interesting facts and trivia. He saw to our every need and was a perfect gentleman in every way. Thank you so much, Steve, for a truly marvelous, memorable day. Happy Christmas to you and yours!
p.s. Also a shout-out to Capital Taxi Tours for handling the whole booking so efficiently. They even offered assistance in getting tickets to Highclere which I thought was truly going above and beyond. Thank you Allyson!

What a wonderful day! Andrew was a terrific tour guide. Although Highclere Castle was not open, we were able to visit Bampton Village, Coggs Farm and other locations used in filming Downton Abbey. We had lunch at the Highway Inn in Burford. It did not disappoint! Would love to go back and stay next time. We then toured various town in Cotswolds and learned more about the history of the area. What beautiful country. Would highly recommend this tour.

Our driver Andrew was excellent. As Highclere Castle was closed, we went to Downton Village and to Cogges Farm which serves as Mr. Drew's farm on the show. In the afternoon, we returned to London where Andrew gave an excellent mix of Downton Abbey sights and rock and roll sights in the city. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day. Andrew was very informative and packed as much as he could into our one day of touring. We will recommend and use the company again.

The driver/guide was wonderful. Tour guide would show us scenes in the show and then show us which building and /or street had been used. He had so much knowledge and was an expert about Downton Abbey. Driver was also very kind and patient. Some of the roads have lots of curves and one of our party goy car sick. Driver did everything he could to accommodate our needs.

My daughter and I took the Private Douwnton Abbey tour three weeks ago. It was magical. From the beginning, when Andrew Wilcox picked us up at our hotel, The Bentley, until our return in the evening,
every minute was amazing. Andrew was wonderful, and made the whole experience fun, easy, and informative. I would encourage anyone who would like to visit the areas outside London and through the Cottswolds, to take this tour. It is not just about Downton Abbey, it is about the history of the many sites we visited. In other words, my husband would also have enjoyed it! Diana Deferville

Private tour of Downton Abbey in the black cab was fantastic. Our driver was great, we did a quiz with him about the show. It was a dream seeing the filming sites and Highclere castle. Long day but well worth it.

Our driver and tour guide, Andrew made the day one to remember. Not only did we see Highclere, but several other little Cotswold villages where scenes were shot for Downton Abbey. We enjoyed lunch in a lovely little pub along the way. Andrew has a vast knowledge of the TV show and even does a twenty five question quiz at the end of the trip. Most enjoyable day.

My wife and I had an exceptional tour of Highclere castle. Our driver was personable and very informative pointing out places of interest along the way to the castle. After our tour we want to a lovely pub, Highway Inn, in a nearby village and had a delicious lunch with a superb atmosphere. After lunch we drove to the village of Downtown Abbey and our driver had a small DVD player and played scenes from the show that detailed exactly where we were standing. It was a very enjoyable day and I highly recommend booking through Viator.
