    Our experience was amazing! The tour guide was funny and knew so much information. The bus driver got us around fast and safely. The tour consisted of 4 beautiful towns in the Cotswolds and each one had their own personality. The tour was so organized, so it allowed us to wonder around without worry. We would definitely suggest this tour!!

    Andrew and John made the trip very personal and interesting. Andrew connects with each person, guiding, helping and sharing stories. Super hosts. Just one suggestion… whenever the clock is moved forward in London, do inform all by mail. I thought I was an hour early, only to find that I just managed to get on the coach in the nick of time It was good that someone called me, and I could make a last minute dash… appreciate it. Very responsible.

    Exceptional tour guide and coach driver, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area as well as stunning views of the Coswild villages. The only downside is we didn't get to have lunch at the Swan Hotel, as listed. We were taken to a place called the Cotswold Arms and the food was a joke. The apple crumble was bitter and the steak pie had no base, it was one inflated puff pastry balloon. Sainsbury's provide better meals for 1/20th of the price. The same tour without lunch is £55 and we paid £96 for the tour with lunch. That's £46 on a very, very poor lunch. But the stunning views and villages compensated. Beautiful day trip.
