    This tour was INCREDIBLE. Our tour guide Karen was funny, personable and knowledgeable. You get a taste of different flavours of different villages in The Cotswolds and I highly recommend this tour. One caveat maybe is the lunch at The Swan Hotel. There were areas in the town of Bibury we would have loves to explored but we did not have enough time there (lunch service was a bit slow).

    Our guide James provided in-depth discussions and pointed out sites and sights along the way. James was charming, polished, knowledgeable, witty, and patient, while our driver Bernard was just so sweet! This set the tone to a sampler of the best of the Cotswolds. Really, the guide and driver make the experience enjoyable! Thank you!

    It was a very nice tour. We liked it a lot. Our guide Zozo shared a lot of interesting info not only on Cotwolds but a lot of other historical events and places. The driver Joanna was very professional. The coach was comfortable. As for the Cotswolds, the places we visited as amazing and a must see. The lunch was good. We highly recommend!
