We had originally booked a private tour of the Cotswold, but it was cancelled. So we chose this tour instead. It was a very lovely tour, visiting two villages and then Blenheim, which I found very interesting. I have to say that our tour guide, Andrew was the best !! He was very informative and very caring. Made sure everyone was taken care of.

Paid for 3 different tours to Blenheim which were all cancelled hours after booking. Waiting to see credit on my card. I feel that operators should update their software so that visitors don’t pay and then get disappointed.

We loved our trip! Bourton-on-the-water was our favorite stop and we loved how we could explore the stops on our own as well :) David was an amazing tour guide and Idris was an excellent driver. Both were extremely conversational and kind and David had excellent stories and knowledge of the tour.

We enjoyed the beautiful English country side on a comfortable coach with a knowledgeable guide in Lesley and an amazing driver in Rebecca. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to escape the city and enjoy the beautiful countryside and the views it has to offer.

Kevin was on outstanding guide, humorous and knowledgeable and able to make recommendations and changes on the fly. Jill’s driving skills kept us on track to see the sights.

This may be more a me issue but I did wish for more time at Blenheim (2 hours) and the last village (1, 20 mins). Should have picked the trip without Downton Abbey aspect (25 min), I'm almost positive there was an option. I'm a fan of the show/movies but those 25 mins could have been better added to the first or third stop. Guide and driver were great.
