What Our Guests Say

4.7/5
"This tour was a definite highlight during our trip to Oxford, Hard for me to think of anything that hasn't already been said about how worthwhile and enjoyable this particular tour is. So, how many more overall Excellent reviews are needed to convince you that 1) The Cotswolds are absolutely gorgeous 2) Isobel is a knowledgeable and informative tour guide. She knows her stuff! 3) David is a safe, capable driver, even on curvy narrow country lanes 4) Your "ride" is a comfortable, spit-spot clean, roomy mini-van??? My advice? Go."

"It was a very nice, informative, interactive and well organised Cotsworld taster tour. Thanks to Isobel and David for organising it so well. Isobel was very knowledgeable and provided very interesting and historical information on the Cotsworld villages and the scenic spots covered in the tour. Also, Isobel provided us with history of Oxford and many Oxford colleges at the start of the tour. Also, really loved how Isobel explained origins of many English phrases which was very interesting and an added bonus!! Both of them took care that social distancing was maintained throughout the tour and that a sanitiser was always available."

"Isobel and David were excellent. Isobel explained everything very clearly and tailored the tour to us as passengers, allowing us to make an extra stop @ Blenheim palace as we had some spare time. It’s clear they have great knowledge about the area and they pick out the best/popular spots to stop and explore. You only need an afternoon (approx 5hrs) and it’s a pleasant and exciting experience!

"My husband and I recently went on the half day Cotswolds taster tour and had an incredible time! This was the best half day taster tour and we are already planning to go again once restrictions are lifted. We even gave our families and friends their contact to book tours because we were so impressed. Fantastic driving Dave and Ed was so knowledgeable about the area. Great communication with us pre tour and post. Thanks so much and definitely worth booking!"
