    Our guide Nick Long was fantastic!! It was a superb day trip from London. Nick was so gracious and knowledgeable- would definitely request him again!
    Dana_S, Dec 2023
    Nick Long was our tour guide and he was amazing and very interesting on the history of the Cotswold area. We had a wonderful day and I recommend this tour to everyone.

    Cotswolds personal tour
    Douglas_D, Nov 2023
    Beautiful old thatch roofed homes; churches, and stone fences constructed with lovely Cotswold limestone coupled with gorgeous countryside dotted with sheep and wild pheasants. Our tour guide, John, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining. Highly recommend!
    One of a kind experience....
    Dale_C, Nov 2023
    One of a kind experience. We were picked up at our hotel and drove directly to the Cotswolds. Beautiful scenery and our driver, Nick, brought the villages to life.

    Thank you for your kind words
    Best tour ever!
    Michael_H, Oct 2023
    This was the best tour ever. Our guide lives in the Cotswolds, he took us to his home of birth. Nick took us to places where we were the only tourists and they were beautiful.

    Great field trip wonderful day sites hiking, great food lots of sheep and a 12 point buck ending with T on the train
    Very disappointing day
    Janet_Y, Sep 2023
    The Cotswolds are beautiful, but this day was not what we we expecting from a Viator tour. Rather than the six hours promised, our tour was only a bit over four hours — and that included time for lunch! Our guide spent more time talking about USA politics than about the Cotswolds. We got almost none of the fun, informative anecdotes that we have come to expect from Viator guides. In most of the villages, he just dropped us off with no guidance or suggestions for things to look for or places to see. I would not recommend this tour.
    Wonderful experience!
    eilleen_m, Sep 2023
    Wow! John was a fabulous tour driver and certainly personalized this experience for our family. He is very knowledgeable of the Cotswold and will definitely tailor this experience to you.
    Ray was a great tour...
    Sam_W, Sep 2023
    Ray was a great tour guide. Lots of local information and he knew the special places to stop for a photo.
    Never got the tour but had to pay
    Regina_P, Sep 2023
    There was a train strike. I was unable to get to the tour guide location. I cancelled the evening before. Viator refused to refund the trip even though there was no tour and the strike was beyond my control.
    Great day in the Cotswolds
    Terri_S, Sep 2023
    John knew a lot of information. He was just lovely & made every minute of our day count. Great memories:)
    Well worth it!
    Theresa_R, Aug 2023
    Nick our guide is from the Cotswold area and he showed us really authentic sites that typifies the uniqueness and beauty of this area. And this was even after jumping through hoops to meet up in the mist of a railway strike!!😳 I would recommend highly. A great way of experiencing the Cotswold Villages!
    The beautiful little...
    Michael_T, Jul 2023
    The beautiful little villages and towns look like a storybook and so peaceful. Snow hill and Burton on the Water were amazing.
    Cotswolds with Nick
    Leah_H, Jul 2023
    Nick was a wonderful guide. He grew up and owned a business in the Cotswolds and was a great source of information and stories. He knew just where to take us and we had a magical day immersed in what can only be described as what you would see in a storybook!
    Awesome tour guide!
    Sandie_D, Jul 2023
    Wonderful tour, well worth it! Nick is knowledgeable and eager to share his love of the area. Took us to really nice places.
