What people are saying about The Cotswolds

Our guide, Aileen, was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of history with us. She was also very informed about the attractions and gave us recommendations on restaurants and other places of interest to visit. The driver, Antonio, is a very good driver, ensuring the drive throughout was a comfortable one. The time allocated to all places was sufficient and we did not feel it was too rushed, which is normally the case for most tours. Highly recommend this tour! Thank you!

Journey rich and full of surprises, highly trained guide, always pleasant and very kind. The bus ride was also very comfortable. The visit to the Shakespeare school was truly a wonderful experience. It was all even more beautiful than what I expected.
