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!

Best tour ever! Our tour guide johny, was the most lovely tour guide I have ever met. I learned so much, laughed so much and had the best day! We even saw lamas :) Johny has an amazing sense of humour ans made the walking tours as well as the time on the bus fun. I highly recommend!
