Cotswolds/Oxford day trip, LondonWalks or Rabbies?

LondonWalks goes to Cotswolds/Oxford only on Wednesdays, but Rabbies mini-bus goes every day. We have a very short stay in London and Scotland, and are trying to decide if we should make the effort to get to London late Tuesday night to go on the LondonWalks tour Wednesday. For those who have taken either tour, your comments are appreciated!

I have taken Rabbies tours in Scotland and London Walks in Oxford/Cotswolds.

With London Walks, you take the train to the area you are visiting where a coach is waiting for you. You return by train as well. This does save time. You meet at Paddington station.

With Rabbies, you meet at the Victoria Bus terminal and drive. London traffic can be bad so the driving will take time.

I looked the Rabbies itinerary and it doesn't say anything about a walking tour of Oxford. London Walks gives a walking tour. In fact, we got a walking tour everywhere if I remember correctly.

In Scotland, I take Rabbies. (I'm taking two this week.) In London, I defer to London Walks.

I totally agree with Frank's logic, though I would choose a tour to just one of those places. However, I'm retired and have plenty of time.

We'll plan to reach London by Tuesday night, and take the Rabbies tour on Wednesday. Thanks for the replies!
