This was a fantastic tour and our guide. Dan, was a great guide. He made the trip a great success with his full on knowledge of the places we went and went overboard with the extras he knew of different areas we visited .A genuinely friendly fellow,full of knowledge .Our accomodation at the Old Bungalow was 11out of 10 .I would definitely book this tour again and hope I had Dan as tour guide again and stayed at the Old Bungalow.

We had a wonderful guide on our small bus of 14 ,his name was Dan,a charming fellow full of knowledge on the areas we visited.
Our overnight Guest House stay was pristine and very comfortable ,the Host and Hostess were delightful people and very helpful in settling us in for a comfortable stay after our long day out .The guest house was called The Old Bungalow. Our Breakfast was included and huge amount of food .
The places we stopped at were absolutely beautiful and overall it was a fantastic trip.Im not sure what I loved the most. Bath or Cotswolds or the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds. Dan was a great driver and we covered a lot of country in this 2day trip.
My only down part was the airconditioning in the bus. But that wouldn't put me off going on this trip again .

The country side was just so beautiful. My whole family enjoyed the scenery very much. We wish we could spend more time in Bibury as the place was just enchanting. Our night stay at the Corinium Hotel was memorable, as it was our first time staying in a 16th building. Special praise to our excellent guide who took extra effort to take care of us, making this tour a very friendly trip. We had a nice couple from San Francisco and two wonderful ladies from Auckland in our group, and we got along very well. I must say this is by far the best trip I have taken. Kudos.

Springtime, sunshine and the magic of the Cotswolds and cities visited made for a wonderful trip. Our guide, Jamie, was a font of knowledge and fun trivia as well. Once we were off the bus, we were free to wander on our own after given top tips by Jamie.
