We were surprised at Daniel’s perfect half-day tour on Lacock and Castle Combe!
This was our first trip to Bath and southern Cotswolds but he covered all of highlights on each town, and his interesting talk about town story & history made us so exciting.
Furthermore, all of the journey was fulfilled with plenty of his hospitality.
He took us to some hidden brilliant spots on Bath and Cotswolds, and we even got a couple of surprise gifts unexpectedly!

We can strongly recommend Bath Insider Tours and Daniel to all international / domestic travelers who are seeking the best guide around Bath and Cotswolds!

Bath Insider Toursはバースの大変素晴らしいツアー会社で、日本人も含めた全ての旅行者にとてもお勧めできます。
ガイドのDanielさんは個人でこのツアー会社を経営しており、旅の楽しさを伝えるためにそれまでのキャリアから一転、この世界に飛び込まれました。「自分は旅からいろいろなことを教えてもらったため、今度は自分が伝える番だ」とおっしゃっていたのが大変印象的でした。
ツアー中は、有名なスポットに加え一般のガイドブックに載っていないスポットにも連れて行っていただきました。また現地ガイドだからこそわかるお勧めレストラン・パブなども教えてくださったり、さらには前日に個人的に購入した隣町の名産品をおすそ分けしてくれたりと、通常のガイドツアーをはるかに越えたおもてなしとホスピタリティに感動しっぱなしでした。

バース近辺でツアー・ガイドをお探しの方には、ぜひダニエルさんのBath Insider Toursを推奨したいと思います。

We had an amazing afternoon with Daniel visiting Castle Coombs and Lacock. Both incredibly beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. Daniel was an excellent guide, really friendly and informative telling us interesting facts and anecdotes of the towns and the area. I would really encourage you to book a tour with him if you are in the area. You get a much better experience than driving yourself, we learned so much and had a lovely afternoon. We ended with a cream tea at Fosse Farmhouse which we never would have known about on our own. We will be back and will definitely book another tour with Daniel.
Thank you Daniel for giving us an afternoon to remember!

This was, no doubt, one of the best tour I have ever been on and I am a tour guide so I know what I am talking about. Daniel is a great guide, very knowledgeable but fun and always ready to go the extra mile for his guests and transform a tour into an amazing experience. My sister and I had a limited time but wanted to visit everything, Lacock, Castle Combe and Stonehenge so Daniel created a special itinerary just for the 2 us. In just half day we had the unique opportunity to enter in Stonehenge inner circle, visit Lacock and have a walk in Castle Combe... it could not have been better! 100% recommended

Thank you for this amazing review and recommendation Sara! It was a real pleasure creating a customised tour for you so that you and your sister could visit the beautiful villages of Lacock and Castle Combe and have the unique experience of going inside the stone circle at Stonehenge. I hope you both have many more wonderful experiences together and I wish you all the best guiding as tourism improves across the globe. If someone reading this review would like to add additional attractions to my Lacock and Castle Combe Tour please contact me via my website and I will be delighted to help, Daniel.

Daniel made a special day one to remember. He's very knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable immediately. You sense he loves his job.
This tour was amazing, an opportunity to know there is much more to the area than the Roman Baths.
The service is top notch, starting with a very comfortable car, water provided, and Covid-19 safety measures covered as well.
I highly recommend this tour, and Bath Insider Tours as a company.
I will be trying the other tours he offers on my next visit to Bath.

Daniel is knowledgeable, friendly, funny and flexible. We learned a lot and he doesn’t simply do the standard tour, he makes your tour special by including some out of the ordinary stops. Plus he is a very safe driver and takes great pictures👍😎

We did the afternoon private tour of Lacock and Castle Combe with Daniel, and it easily capped off our most relaxing day of vacation. Communication with Daniel was top-notch. Quick to respond, had a wealth of information to share, and Daniel coordinated our pick-up location via email with easy-to-follow instructions. He was right on time, the car was very clean and comfortable, and Daniel was easy to talk to. He made us feel welcome and at ease. The tours around Lacock and Castle Combe was relaxing and allowed lots of time for pictures and questions, and a trip to Coco Chemistry in Lacock which is not to be missed. The afternoon was capped off with cream tea in Castle Combe. The scones were fantastic, and there were enough leftovers for breakfast the following day. Upon our return to Bath, Daniel dropped us off at the Scallop Shell (his recommendation) for dinner. We had made a reservation but arrived a bit early. It was no problem. We were taken to our table, and the food was fantastic. Our whole day in Bath and the surrounding countryside was our most relaxing day of vacation, and we have Daniel to thank for most of it. We followed his instructions and suggestions, were able to get everything done we wanted to, and made it back to the train station for the trip back to London without a hiccup. Thank you Daniel and Bath Insider Tours! I'd highly recommend Bath Insider Tours to anyone visiting the Bath area!

Many thanks for your wonderful review and recommendation Amie. It was a real pleasure meeting you both and taking you on a tour of the villages of Lacock and Castle Combe. London is a great city but there is so much more to the country besides London so I am delighted you got to experience this :) I am glad you enjoyed your meal at the Scallop Shell - when I make it to Texas I will have to try the Texan Barbecue! Wishing you and Hannah many more wonderful travelling experiences, Daniel.
