Highlight of trip
5/5
"We had such a fabulous day touring the beautiful Cotswolds and learned so much about the area. We would have never found the small roads and byways that we explored. I highly recommend this tour!"

Excellent
5/5
"Loved the smaller group and vehicle....sooo much better than a big bus. Their extensive knowledge of the area was very apparent from the beginning. Perfect length of time for the tour also."

Above and Beyond our Cotswolds Expectations!
5/5
"We embarked on the Cotswold Explorer tour with Isobel and David and had the most delightful day. Isobel is a gifted and informed guide with a working knowledge of the Cotswolds and its colourful traditions. David is a steady and reliable driver (which was greatly appreciated in a hilly landscape!). We truly felt cared for. The tour was exactly as advertised (with a few delightful surprises!) and we appreciated the amount of time in each village and the frequent stops. We have been on a number of these types of bus tours around the UK and this was our favourite. If I could give 6 stars I would. Thank you, Isobel and David!"
