Full description

Depart from London and leave the busy streets of the city behind as you head towards the Cotswolds, the single largest Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK.

With its rustic rural charm, rolling hills, vibrant market towns, and picture-perfect villages, the Cotswolds covers nearly 800 square miles of unspoiled countryside. Take a trip through its rolling hills, home to some of the most famous and historic towns and villages of England. 

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this range of hills in west-central England is packed with picturesque villages built of Cotswold stone, beautiful churches, and vast manor houses. 

As you make your way through little villages and historic market towns you will have the opportunity to explore the honey-colored cottages of Bourton-on-the-Water, Bibury, and Burford. 

Highlights include a stunning row of 17th-century weaver’s cottages and a tranquil river flowing through the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’.

Meeting point is in Evan Evans' office, even if it rains you can wait inside, where there is also a toilet. Peter told us a lot of interesting facts about London during the drive. The scenery is great, here too there was information about the people and the area in English that was easy to understand. The three villages are worth seeing, there are many small shops with antiques, souvenirs, food, tea and knickknacks. Everything is historical and very pretty.

This was exactly what I was looking for! Perfect group size, stops in a few villages, expertly smooth driving (thanks, Graham!), and super knowledgable commentary from our guide, Manon. We had two long-ish (1.5 hours) stops and 2 short photo stops (30 mins), which gave enough time to look around, pop into some shops, get some food, and admire the scenery. Manon took great care to make sure everyone had what they needed. It's a long day, but really gives you a great taste of the Cotswolds!

I booked this trip as a female solo traveller wanting to discover the beautiful Cotswolds without swarming the place with a big group, and I was not disappointed. The group size was perfect, and our guide Leslie and our driver Lucien were lovely. Leslie gave us the right amount of information and recommendations before letting us explore the three villages by ourselves. We took smaller country roads and even made an extra stop in another village, providing a more local experience off the beaten track.
