The sites were well worth seeing, however, there were two very big negatives. First, there is an expensive additional charge at the Blenheim Caste stop if you actually want to ENTER the site. Second, our tour guide was inconsiderate and rather insufferable. His unpleasant and

Phil, our Professor Educator and Steve his driver, gave us the gift of a lovely day in the English countryside. To say Phil knows his history is an understatement. He presents a tutorial on the history of the Cotswolds and Blenheim Palace like he had actually lived the history.
