Burford was the first village to visit and it was quite impressive. The old church with the tombs dating back to hundreds of years was unbelievable. Dave was a great guide and knowledgeable about the history. We truly enjoyed the entire Cotswolds experience.

Toured on Sept 26, 2022: Kevin, the tour operator, was the star....he is hands down my favourite Brit that I met during my 5-day visit to London, UK. I am thankful for all of these parts of the well-organized tour: the relaxed vibe, the prompt departure time, very comfortable shiny new Mercedes mini-bus, depth of Kevin's knowledge of all things UK (we covered a lot of topics & asked him lots of questions), his professionalism and patriotism were remarkable and wonderful, the amount of time we had to walk around each of the four locations we visited. Also, as a solo female traveler, I felt safe during the entire tour. It was lovely to leave the big city and enjoy the beauty and history of the Cotswolds. Thank you!

Seeing a pub built in the year 947 called The Porch House. Having an English tea in Burford. The coach was comfortable and quiet. The driver Kevin was just wonderful, good voice, lots of relevant and fun information, always on time and a good driver!

Loved it!! Jamie was our driver and such a fun guy. Gave us lots of interesting info during the drive. I also had total confidence in his driving which is unusual for me. The food at The Wellington in Bourton on the Water was great British pub food. Tour was great all around. If you need a restroom after the tour (we sure did!), walk down to The Marriott. Can’t remember exactly where they were but it’s very close to lobby.

We had a wonderful time. Kevin was great with his narrative, and the places we stopped were unique and beautiful. The timing at each stop was just right for shopping and/or eating. It was one of the highlights of our London trip.

Very disappointing driver. He picked scabs or something on his scalp nonstop, also picked at his beard and nose for the entire trip. He was entertaining and informative for the first half BUT was weak and repetitive the last 2 hours.
