What people are saying about Bourton-on-the-Water

What a fabulous day out exploring the Cotswolds! Our guide Colin is so knowledgeable and friendly, he ensured we had the best experience. Loved the secret village he took us too - it was personally the highlight of the day for me :) Also appreciate how thoughtful Colin was - he made a list of all the hiking trails I could explore solo without a car and shared it with me. Definitely recommend!

The tour was lovely with lots of great information along the way. I felt like we saw sights off the beaten path that larger buses couldn’t access. Pickup and drop off were across the street from our hotel and very convenient.

Wealth of knowledge from Isobel. Expert driving from David. Overall a most pleasant day. The Cotswolds are beautiful and well worth visiting. You will not be disappointed with this tour.

Guide was marvellous. Had facts about history, industry and people of the Cotswold. Plenty of time was given to explore villages stopped at. Would recommend.

The trip was wonderful. Isabel and Dave were very knowledgeable after living in the area for many years. I highly recommend this tour.
