A very small group - schedule was adjusted to accommodate a request - guide was personable, knowledgeable and professional. A thoroughly enjoyable day, capped off with an unexpected drop off at our hotel!

All that I had hoped for

This was such a special day. . the small van allowed us to explore small, quaint villages that otherwise would not be available to us. We parked, got out and walked a lot, which was a perfect way to feel and experience these villages. Graham was fabulous, a natural host and full of information and knowledge we could never have collected on our own. I can not recommend this day trip too highly. . . and I can not think of one that that I could offer to improve it, other than to make the day never end. :-)

TAKE THIS TOUR!!

Our guide/driver was outstanding - interesting, amusing and very knowledgeable. He grew up in the area and had lots of interesting stories about the places we visited. We visited at least 5 or 6 Cotswold hamlets and villages and explored the unique features of each. The minivan only holds 8 passengers so you are assured of a personal, small-group experience.. I have taken many similar tours in many countries but this was definitely one of the best.

Had a great time with our guide, Ian. He showed us both popular and lesser known villages, so it was a great mix. He was very kind and knowledgable and it was a great day trip from Oxford.

Wonderful Cotswolds day out- highly recommended

Ian was a great guide - we were in a small group of eight ( in a small van) So he was able to take us to small out of the way charming villages, showing us how the people lived in thatched roof cottages, then driving through charming countryside before we got out for a walk around other beautiful and charming villlages. He was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and somtimes funny and a great driver through all the small out of the way roads, , giving everyone enough time for a walk, a drink and showing us where the best photo spots were. I would highly recommend this tour company .

If you have the opportunity to take this tour DO IT! It is so worth it. The villages you see are all so beautiful and unique and the guide Ian could not be more welcoming and friendly. He really goes above and beyond to make this an amazing experience and has a great way of telling the stories behind each place you visit.

It was very good! Everything as I have...

It was very good! Everything as I have read from the review, particularly on the part that Ian, the guide, was from one of the villages and therefore he knows the place really well. As promised in the itinerary, Ian brought us to the lesser known villages, away from the bustle and hustle of the more popular villages. He did bring us to 1 village which was full of tourists, just so we can compare and contrast. Very relaxing walking tour around the villages, suitable for the young and the old! Btw, I had expected a much older guy...due to all the reviews read about him, his experiences, etc. But Ian turned out to be a young, energetic chap!
