Thank you for booking a tour with Cotswold Exploring. We are delighted that you will be joining us on one of our excursions through the glorious Cotswold countryside.

We have created a series of single-page information leaflets in PDF format, which you can either download and print out, or view on-screen, depending upon whichever is easiest for you … and simpler for your device to cope with. These include specific details about the tour you’ve booked, joining instructions, timing, useful phone numbers and so forth.

Simply click the link below that corresponds to the Tour you’ve booked and either save the PDF file to somewhere easily accessible on your device, or open it now and print it out so you have a hard-copy to bring with you.

You may also find the following general information useful, as it relates to all our tours:

Start point

All our tours start and end outside the Oxford Visitor Information Centre in Broad St, Oxford. The postcode is OX1 3AS. If you have one, then key this into your Smartphone or SatNav, and you should be able to use the postcode to find the Information Centre easily.

We can sometimes arrange other pick-up and drop-off points, but only by prior arrangement, and provided the location is on the route of that day’s tour.


The specific PDF for the Tour you’ve booked will give you the exact departure time, duration and likely end-time of your Tour. Most start at 09:30, but some set off at 09:00, and the Spring/Summer Cotswold Taster leaves Oxford at 13:00. Please be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes before the scheduled departure, as we cannot wait for late-comers!

Our Minibus

We’re very proud of our minibus! It’s very distinctive, and very stylish in its dark Oxford Blue livery. We’re sure you’ll spot it straight away, so keep an eye open for a Mercedes Sprinter 12-seater with Explore Oxford and the Cotswolds in silver lettering on the front and sides.

The easiest way is always to use the Contact us page here on the website, and quote your Booking Order Number from your emailed receipt.
