Stunning Cotswolds
Pamela_M
, Apr 2022
Excellent tour . Mark, our driver for the day, picked us up promptly from our hotel and was very friendly and chatty. We visited lots of stunning places in the Cotswolds as well as a few that where off the beaten track. Mark was very informative about all the planned stops and the surrounding areas and also amused us with some quirky activities held in the Cotswolds. Every stop was timed to perfection allowing for refreshments, lunch or browsing the stunning villages . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ‘Go Cotswolds’ as the whole day was faultless. Thank you Mark for an extremely memorable day .

Thank you for your lovely review Veena! You certainly picked a chilly day to visit us in the Cotswolds, but not many visitors get to see it all covered in snow so you've experienced something quite special! It was a pleasure to have you and Tara on our tour on Saturday, and we look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon.

Must visit tour- Very well planned
Manas

It was a wonderful, well planned tour. Colin was a fantastic guide. He had a great knowledge about the Cotswold, local places and explained everything very nicely and kept engaging with everyone. We had a small group of 10 in a mini bus and had good halt at the key spots to explore places further. This was my first solo trip in a tour and it was amazing. Cotswold is very picturesque and this is must visit tour. Thank you Colin and the team.

What a lovely review, Manas, thank you so much for taking the time to write it! I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your day with Colin on your first tour travelling solo! Our team have all travelled the world solo, so we always try to do our very best to make sure that people who are travelling alone feel comfortable and safe and that they have a great time!

Fantastic experience from beginning to end. Tom was the perfect host. He was very informative, and we learned a great deal. There was plenty of stops to go exploring and get fed and watered. The Cotswolds is very picturesque and if you get the chance, definitely go on this trip. Absolutely brilliant.

A very enjoyable tour! 12 of us on a mini van meant we had a small, nice group with better access to places than going on a bigger tour bus. The tour guide, Colin, was knowledgeable and upbeat, with lots of great recommendations. Would highly recommend this tour!

Highly recommend this tour! Tom is a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable and pleasant! We had a great day and have seen so much of the area. It was the first ever organised tour I've been on where you are not taken to the shops for hours because they've got arranged deals with the tour agency!

Tom was a fantastic guide! I loved that this was a small group with a local man. Tom took us to the highlights of the northern Cotswolds. He was great at teaching us about the area and then letting us go and explore. I thought this was a perfect way to get an introduction to a gorgeous area!

My wife and I had a fantastic and memorable tour. A wonderful part of the UK. Tom the owner and our guide was an excellent host and we were collected from outside our caravan park. Our tour was fully booked and all of our needs were catered for and we never felt rushed. Tom was more than happy to assist with personal photo requests and he took us to amazing places where we would not be able to access with our hired mobile home. We would highly recommend this tour.
