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.

Mal and Pete were absolutely lovely and my husband and I had such a nice time exploring Cotswolds in their company. They are very flexible on how one would want to customise their trip. And as they are locals, they have many snippets of history to share and know many hidden spots of Cotswolds which are tourists-free! This was my first time in Cotswold and I was sceptical of being able to explore Cotswolds without having our own car but Mal and Pete made the experience so worth it! Would totally recommend this private tour as it's got it all - beautiful landscapes and even more beautiful company! :)

We had the most pleasant day soaking up the gorgeous little villages in the Cotswolds and enjoying the surrounding scenery.
Mal and Pete's wealth of knowledge and passion for their local region added to the experience and we felt it allowed us to understand the area so much more than if we were to venture out ourselves.
We feel so lucky we were able to spend the day with locals to see the real hidden gems. Mal and Pete are so lovely and warm, it didn't feel like a tour but rather friends showing us around!
Highly recommend this tour if you're considering it!
❤️Kate and Maggie

This was an amazing and memorable day with Mal and Pete Quigley! Not only was it informative and a spectacular tour, my husband and I felt like we were traveling with friends. It was far above our expectations. We got all of the inside scoop on the places we saw. They gave us time to soak in all of the views and history of the area and never made us feel rushed. We made a lifetime of memories today and it just made us want to come back! We HIGHLY recommend: www.experiencethecotswolds!

Toured the Cotswolds with Mal and Pete and it truly felt like we were being shown the area by family members. We were picked up from The Bell Inn (also highly recommend) and spent 4 delightful hours driving in the country. The van was spacious and clean with windows which are able to be lowered to capture photos or get a better view. We were easily able to see all the “musts” and additionally, we were able to visit several “non touristy” towns. I only wish we had taken this tour the first day so we would have known more about other towns earlier in our trip. With this private tour, you set the pace and the agenda. We aren’t shoppers and preferred the historical areas, but they were happy to spend as much time as you wanted at a stop if you wished to look in shops etc. Mal and Pete clearly love the Cotswolds and it shows. Great day / would recommend!

Great tour! Mal and Pete were tremendous guides. They know the history, the people, all the stories and the best places to stop and look around. We accidentally left our phone in their van and the responded immediately, even though it was completely inconvenient for them to do so - returning the phone to us early the next day. Highly recommend this tour!

The Cotswolds are picturesque. We had a very short trip in London and wanted to squeeze in a day in the Cotswolds. We found Pete & Mal's tours on TripAdvisor and their company Experience the Cotswolds. From the beginning they were responsive in communicating before we arrived. We stayed the night before in Moreton-in-Marsh and they picked us up at our hotel. From the beginning it was a fun time learning from them and their knowledge of the towns we visited in the Cotswolds. The timing was good for us at each location and the car conversation was most enjoyable. They felt like friends and you'd be comfortable hosting at your home if they were ever in your area. We did a couple of the more popular Cotswolds towns which are lovely, and also saw some of the more quiet Cotswolds towns we hadn't heard of, but we loved learning about them and enjoyed the quieter towns. Highly recommend them, and if you are staying longer than a day, they will give you ideas on where else to visit while you are there. It was a good overview and only makes us want to come back to experience more.

My mom and I went on the tour with Mal and Pete and it was absolutely amazing! We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed our time with them. I can’t say enough how wonderful this day was, we visited multiple villages and towns and despite a bit of rain, had a great time exploring. Mal and Pete made it so special. We highly recommend this tour.

Excellent Cotswolds Tour. Mal and Peter picked us up from the Moreton-in-Marsh station and drove us through at least 10 Cotswolds villages before dropping us back at the station.

They explained the significance and context of each village and the homes along the way. We got to walk around the villages. Lower Slaughter is an exceptionally beautiful one to walk around. Overall, Cotswolds was a magical experience, seemed straight out of a medieval fantasy movie.

Mal and Pete were great local tour guides of the Cotswolds! They new the history, best sights, and amusing anecdotes of the area. They managed to avoid the most crowded areas while sharing the beauty and charm of the Cotswolds. Pete drove while Mal chatted, with Pete adding in a bit too. They made sure we saw everything of interest even though we only had four hours and we felt like we saw all the highlights and then some. Pete made sure to time our perfect arrival back at the train station. We would definitely tour with Mal and Pete again!
