Excellent tour of north Cotswolds. In 6-7 hours you get to visit similar number of sites/ villages. We were a small group of 8 people and everyone was able to engage with each other. Tom our guide was lovely and as he drove us through the beautiful landscape he related history in a very joyful and entertaining manner. He was very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. This tour is like an overview of Cotswold and one may wish to plan a second trip on select sites with more time for strolls. At the end everyone got dropped either at their hotels or train stations as requested and was also given best eatery recommendations as well around one’s location. Thankyou Tom, you are doing your job fabulously.
