Beautiful trip to the Cotswolds, enhanced by the Autumn colours!
Oct 2020 • Friends
Beautiful trip to the Cotswolds, enhanced by the Autumn colours!
The guiding couple were very nice and attentive and we were left impressed by the guide knowledge and the driving was safe. They were happy to pull over in "the middle of nowhere" just for us to get out to take pictures or experience the sounds and quietness of the environment - very appreciated.
We definitely recommend the trip, even under pandemic circumstances, is an outdoor activity and there are not many tourists at this time.
The trip is not too tiring as part of the time is spent driving across the villages.
We visited several villages, we have seen lots of sheep and pheasants, nice countryside properties and beautiful fields - a relaxing and lovely day out.
Thank you for the day Isobel and David!

Very knowledgeable guide!
Isabelle was a fantastic guide. Being a small and more intimate tour allowed us to visit more Cotswold villages that a bigger coach wouldn't be able to access. My favourite thing was just how knowledgeable Isabelle was - you'd have to spend years researching to learn what you learn on a day with this tour. Highly recommend this tour.

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!

Essential Cotswold in a day
Isabel and David were very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable of the towns and area that we visited. Bibury is my favourite village on the tour.
