Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In this part of the world, vacationers start each day with a proper English breakfast. Why not continue it with a proper Cotswold tour? With more than 800 square miles to explore, my husband and I knew we couldn't see everything on our own, and climbing into a crowded bus didn't hold much appeal. But hop into a luxurious, air-conditioned Beamer? Yes, please! David, the expert behind the wheel, steered us toward an adventure tailor-made for the two of us. His vast knowledge of the Cotswolds enabled him to answer every bizarre question we had ... a real-life Siri, if you will. His anecdotal stories brought many of the old characters to life (hard to keep all those kings, queens, authors, and artists straight) and his witty personality was the clotted cream on the scone. There's no "Are we there yet?" coming from the back seat when David's in the front. Take it from yet another 100% satisfied customer: THIS tour guide is the driving force behind one of the best days you'll ever spend in The Cotswolds!

My mother and I had the privilege of touring with David in May. David created a custom itinerary for us for 2 days. Day 1 was touring around the charming villages and Day 2 was visiting Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) and Oxford.

We could not have enjoyed our experience more! David always kept us on schedule without feeling rushed. It was a very relaxing, luxury experience where we could just rest in the backseat and David took care of everything. David took us around in his pristine BMW X5 and he was a very safe driver.

By the end of the two days, David felt like part of the family. If you’re looking for a bespoke, luxury experience in the Cotswolds, be sure to reach out to THE Cotswold Tour Guide.

My friend Judy and I had the distinct pleasure of touring the Cotswolds with David in early May. His extensive knowledge of the area as well as his love of sharing historical facts made for a very enjoyable tour. David will share insights that you could not get on your own. He is friendly and accommodating with a wicked sense of humor! He was prepared in advance w/tickets for every venue and was greeted wherever we went. We were extremely happy with his services. There is NO better way to tour the Cotswolds!

If we could give 6 Stars we would. David and this brilliant tour business he has built is second to none. David took my mother and I on 2 tours, one to the Cotswolds and another to Oxford and Oxfordshire. Both days where jam packed with sights we never thought we would be able to see . David had built these tours for us and they did not disappoint. We enjoyed every minute of the day, from the beautiful and historic sites and with David extensive knowledge of each place, we learnt so much.
Each day David had also selected the most amazing English Gastro Pubs, these pubs served fantastic food and had the most fantastic Ambiance.

David himself is a total professional and a lovely gentleman. His tours was one of the highlights of our trip.

My husband, brother, sister-in-law and I had a picture perfect day in the Cotswolds with David as our charming, attentive, knowledgeable and good-humored guide. From booking to planning and executing our trip, David made everything easy. He took us to some of the most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds and selected a lovely place for lunch. We all agreed this tour was absolutely one of the highlights of our two-week trip to England. If you want to see the best of the Cotswolds on a tour designed to your liking, then The Cotswolds Tour Guide is, without question, the tour to book!

David is a fabulous guide that we highly recommend. He customized our 2-day tour through the Avebury Circles to Blenheim Palace, the Cotswolds & Stratford-upon-Avon exactly to our wishes but also suggested additions that turned out to be highlights. David walked thru our sites with us providing both personalized guiding service (I believe we're better than the local guides) & directing us to the best videos & presentations at each stop. His recommended lunch stops & overnight accommodations were wonderful (later, when sharing our visit with locals, they told us these are some of the best restaurants & lodging in the area).
David is a careful & safe driver. His car was spacious & comfortable with plenty of room for our luggage.
We will definitely use David on our next trip to the UK.

We had a wonderful day with David! His knowledge of English history was amazing. My best friend, my daughter and I had such a fun day visiting one charming town after the other. David created the perfect itinerary based on what we wanted to see, like the Tolkien door at St. Edwards Church. We had a fabulous lunch at The Lygon Arms in Broadway. Afterwords we had time to stroll around the small town and little shops. We got to see lots of sheep in Upper Slaughter. Such a magical day!

My husband and I visited London in February for a valentines get away, to break up our trip (and as my first time being in the UK) we spent a few days in Buckinghamshire outside of London at Cliveden House. In addition to our romantic get away at this amazing property we really wanted to see more of the surrounding areas and hear directly from locals about the history. David was absolutely incredible and worked with the hotel to arrange a day of adventure for us. He picked us up in his beautiful very comfortable SUV with all our luggage and drove us through the country to experience Bath. The day was rainy and overcast but that did not put a damper on our fun, David arranged tours of various sites we were able to select with him ahead of time and we even stopped into the tea house for a nice high tea experience before departing. On top of this full day of touring David also then drove us from Bath to our next destination back in London. Great service, great experience- Highly Recommend!!

Having engaged David Keffler, The Cotswold Tour Guide, was the best thing that we did. There were four of us and his vehicle was clean and comfortable with amenities that we would come to need. David was energetic, well read and wonderfully knowledgeable about the Cotswold and provided us with everything we needed and wanted to know about the area. David was punctual, most charming and attendant to our needs throughout the two days that we were with him. His tour was well worth every penny and then some; and, is surprisingly affordable. I would not hesitate to re-engage him and highly recommend that anyone who is remotely interested in a Cotswold tour to contact him. He will not disappoint!
