        It was an amazing day!
        This tour was the highlight of my month, we really had a great time, lovely weather plus an amazing guide, Cuma! He’s one of the most talented and well-known photographers I’ve ever met :) I had the privelege to join his photography tours before and already knew this was gonna be a great one, too. He always makes us feel we’re exploring with a friend, always kind and knowledgeable. Tour was on schedule, round-trip transportation was soo comfortable and his itinerary ensured we had enough time to explore each location and hidden gems. The villages were absolutely stunning, stone cottages and amazing sights were straight out of a storybook. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for an amazing day trip to the countryside, thanks for another great trip Cuma, I can’t wait to visit again!

        Amazing!
        Cuma was amazing. He was super sweet and accommodating about our toddler. I did not think that would last a whole hour of photoshoot. But Cuma was very patient and She quickly connected with him and the shoot was a breeze. The pictures look amazing with all the London backdrops that we couldn’t have captured. Thank you so much!

      l asked Cuma to plan a 3-day tour of the countryside for me and my mom. He pulled everything together so quickly, tailored it to what we wanted, and found really special places for us to stay and visit. The first morning he picked us up at Gatwick and drove us to Oxford where we had lunch, explored the university (including Harry Potter locations) and visited a market. We never would have been able to see Oxford as efficiently as we could with him. He knew where to go to see beautiful and interesting things while avoiding the crowds.

      Actually, he did that every place we visited.

      The following day we toured Blenheim Palace and a couple of smaller villages in the Cotswolds. On the final day we visited another village (saw a beautiful open air Sunday service) and finished the tour with Sunday roast at a pub in Bath and a walk through the city.

      Cuma made everything so easy for us. He arranged all the transportation, inns, meals (the organic farm was amazing), and activities. He was flexible and adjusted the schedule when we wanted to spend more time exploring something. He is an extraordinarily talented photographer and took beautiful pictures of me and my mom. I have several I'll treasure forever.

      But most of all, he was wonderful company. He is an engaging and charming person, kind, patient, and enthusiastic. From the beginning of the trip, I felt like we were traveling with a friend. By the end of the trip, we were.

      This is the perfect experience if you're looking to get away from the other generic touristy Cotswolds tours. Cuma was very kind and accommodating and took us to many locations that would have been difficult to get to on our own or with a larger tour based on what we were interested in. He also has a great eye for secret photo-worthy spots. He was very patient with our group when we wanted to linger a bit longer at certain places! Lunch was at a great local spot that did not feel touristy at all. He was communicative and made sure we got everything that we could out of the tour, up until the very end!

      This was by far the highlight of our girls' trip to the UK. Cuma is kind, knowledgable, and extremely flexible. We wanted a private, informative, but relaxed day of shopping, exploring, and eating -- and Cuma helped facilitate our tour perfectly for that. Did you know he's also a professional photographer?! He took the nicest photos of us in the countryside, creating memories that will last forever. I am so grateful we took this trip and could not recommend a tour with Cuma any more highly. Worth every penny!

      We were delighted to book a private guided tour of the Cotswolds on short notice on the specific day we needed! Pick up and drop off at our hotel was a plus. Cuma was warm and friendly with a very comfortable car and vast knowledge about the area. He took us to picturesque towns that some of the bigger tour buses can’t get to and pointed out the important features at each place. He was always willing to take pictures of us at photographic spots, and even took pictures of us on his own professional camera! I would highly recommend Cuma for your tour guide needs!

      We loved our tour of the Cotswolds! Cuma made the best use of our time together and he was very knowledgeable of the history of the Cotswolds and the area and gave recommendations of restaurants in our stops as well. Would definitely recommend and would do it again to know other Cotswolds villages as well!

      Cuma was wonderful! He showed us around some quaint towns in The Cotswolds and also around Oxford.
      While he told us of some important places, he also gave us free time to explore on our own.
      Cuma customized the trip so that we could have the best experience. We would definitely recommend Cuma and this tour to anyone visiting the Cotswolds. We had a perfect day!

      Cuma was a fantastic guide for our day tour. He was on time, had a beautiful car and knew a ton about the history of each village we visited. He knew where to go and paced the day well, with enough time for exploring and having lunch at a pub. He is also an asking photographer and took really nice photos of us with our phones. Would recommend to anyone!

      Not only were the Cotswolds exceptional, so was our tour guide Cuma! We let him chose our village destinations and he did not disappoint! He knew so much of the local history and truly made our day unique and special. If you need the services of a wonderful Cotswold tour guide, Cumo is your person. We felt as if we had made a new friend on our holiday!

      We were visiting the Cotswolds recently and had the pleasure of taking a tour with Cuma. He arrived promptly at our hotel in Moreton in Marsh in his beautiful and very clean and comfortable car. He explained our itinerary for the day and we were off to our first stop. Cuma is a wonderful driver and guide. He has vast knowledge of the area and pointed out many small details to us that we would have missed if we were on our own. We went to so many beautiful spots with the chance to walk around quite a few villages.We had a lovely day with Cuma and we recommend his tour if you will be in the area.

      Cuma was amazing! We booked a bit last minute but he took us to all the spots we wanted to, plus had plenty of knowledge of his favorite places in the Cotswolds as well. We got to see plenty of the villages, the lavender field, and Cuma made sure to show us the best spots for pictures in each place. Highly recommend!
