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.

    We had a magnificent day visiting the Cotswolds. Jo was our guide and she was energetic and informative and very interesting. There was 7 in our group which was the perfect size. We saw everything we were expecting and more. We loved it.

    David Stubbs from London Country Tours truly made our day trip to Cotswolds absolutely PERFECT! My friend and I wanted to see so much but also have time to explore and we were overwhelmed with choices when we first began our research. Through reviews I stumbled upon David Stubbs and decided to go for a private tour guide complete with door-to-door transportation!
    He helped tailor our trip and gave us plenty of time in each town. He also guided us to great recommendations for drinks and shopping and even made us lunch reservations!
    We didn’t have a worry in the world as he thought of everything! We never felt rushed and we got everything we wanted! He even squeezed in Oxford which wasn’t planned and it made the trip even better!
    We loved our experience and highly highly highly recommend EVERYONE to find this man and make him your forever guide!
    Thank you David Stubbs!!!! We will never forget you and your kindness!
    And we loved the pie you gifted us!
    😋 such a sweet treat!

    This tour was everything we wanted it to be. Our guide was professional, pleasant, extremely well-informed and her knowledge of the area and its history was extensive. We enjoyed all the places we stopped (although we would have liked to spend more time at Anne Hathaway’s cottage) and were given ample time to explore or have a bite to eat. Our driver, as well, was very courteous and professional and we felt very safe with him behind the wheel. The van was modern, but we would suggest that the back row seating be reduced from 4 to 3 seats as it is too crowded for 4 average-sized adults.

    This tour is fantastic. It is such a great way to see the Cotswolds- being introduced to it by local guides- Isobel and David. They guided us through villages in the Cotswolds- not only showing us the sites- but also giving us information about the history of the area- and insights into the communities that we are visiting. Their tours are designed in such a way that we are in quieter (if possible) villages so that we avoid some of the tourist rush- and also have a better way to experience the sights. In each village you get ample time to explore it- and Isobel gives great guidance of what highlights there are to see- and what spots are good to grab a bite at. I would highly recommend going on their tours. I have enjoyed it so much I have been a repeat customer- going on a few of their offerings, during my extended stay in Oxford.

    This was a fabulous job and Christian was a wonderful tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and elevated the experience by sharing the history and stories of the area. We especially appreciated his recommendation for a snack and for lunch. His friendly personality enabled us all to feel relaxed and entertained. We were 3 generations- ages 72 to 13 and we all enjoyed our tour. Thanks so much!

    Our tour guide was knowledgeable and organized. We enjoyed the trip and loved the small villages she showed us. It was nice to avoid the hassle of big tour buses and travel by minivan.

    The trip was comfortable and well organised. We did manage to see all three places but Windsor would have been very rushed were it not a Sunday!!(Chapel visit and changing of the guard doesn’t happen on a Sunday..so do check what is open when booking!!) Richard our tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful. We had used the Evans Evans Tours.Will definitely recommend this tour if rushed for time… a little bit of everything!

    Our guide made Stonehenge and Bath a real delight. He connected with everyone. I’m 76 and felt like a university student again! Well done!

    We had a private tour through the Cotswolds and Blenheim Palace with Ian. Our family enjoyed Ian's firsthand knowledge and fun stories as we toured the villages. Everything about the trip is coordinated by Ian and he makes the experience so enjoyable. He knew exactly how to plan our trip with ages ranging from 14 to 72. We all highly recommend this tour and the Blenheim Palace and grounds were a wonderful stop in addition to the quaint and beautiful Cotswold villages.

    What can I say about Graham and the absolute stellar private tour and exceptional service on Christmas Eve?!?! Communication with Graham was easy - he responded immediately and provided solid tips and advice. He was able to accommodate my husband’s last minute knee injury with care and concern. Also, the man worked a MIRACLE and was able to find us transportation from Bath back to London on Boxing Day! Now for the tour… Graham designed a full day of touring specifically for our family based upon our interests and needs. We started in London with timely pick up in his comfortable, clean car. Then we were off to Oxford where he gave us a lovely walking tour full of history and architecture. Graham is very knowledgeable and shares the information interestingly and with ease. Then off to the beautiful Cotswolds- Burford, Bibury, and Tetbury. So picturesque! Graham took our family photo in front of Arlington Row and we had a tasty pub lunch at the Golden Pheasent. In Tetbury, we went into St Mary’s church where they were lighting the candle chandeliers for the Christmas Eve program. Our final stop was our hotel in Bath where we were safely delivered with too much luggage… Graham was friendly, polite and so knowledgeable - the entire family thoroughly enjoyed the day despite Covid and a touch of rain! I would definitely tour with Graham again - worth every pound!
