Everything I could want. Paul, our driver, even picked us up because we were running a few minutes late and he was very close. Great guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Happy to interact with everyone and walk around with us as well. We had a great time and he managed our van so well in spite of a huge crowd of cars and vans in The Cotswolds. Wonderful. And we booked again with Get Your Guide for tomorrow to the Dales.

Len took us on some back roads and showed us some things/areas that larger buses wouldn't have been able to navigate as these were some wind-y narrow roads. Breathtaking views and everything one imagines the English countryside to be. Far better than driving one's-self.

Paul was a great guide and his enthusiasm for the Cotswolds rubbed off. He was very knowledgeable and had a pleasant manner. We got to see the highlights in each of the towns we visited. Although the stays were short, we didn’t feel rushef

We greatly enjoyed our time and learned much. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

We could have used a little more time at a few of the stops
