We signed up for the Lunch in the Cotswolds to spend a day outside of London and get a feel for the English countryside. We expected to travel to a couple of villages and have lunch at a typically English Inn. What we received was an incredible 10 hour journey into the history, geography, geology, economics, language, and politics of the United Kingdom. It was an awesome experience!! Our tour guide effortlessly brings history, culture and geography together in such a way that a coach ride to ancient villages becomes a memorable experience of a lifetime. David put so many things into perspective during our ride together that by the time we left the coach, we felt enlightened with a thirst for more learning on our own, and it made touring sites in London much more enjoyable as we had historical perspective from the tour. From a pure logistics perspective, the tour was spot on. We made the reservation a few days out and arrived at the Victoria Coach station on time. The motor coach was comfortable with an expert driver and our outstanding tour guide. The bus departed London and traveled northwest into the Cotswolds where David explained where we were going, the roots of language and culture of the people who live there, and the geography and geology of the settlers of the Cotswolds. Passing the lush countryside, our guide pointed out the sheep which sparked a conversation on agriculture and the economics of the UK. As the terrain changed, we learned of the geology of the area and how it influenced the building material in the Cotswolds. We made a quick comfort break enroute and then were off to a series of four picturesque villages in the Cotswolds and a delightful lunch at the Swan Inn. Throughout the journey, our guide provided context to each of the villages, the why behind what we were seeing and the historical understanding of the conflicts and politics of England over the past thousand years that shaped what we see today. David’s expert knowledge of the Royal families over time offered scope and depth to our travel. He offered potential locations for a cup of tea or a local delicacy at each village and then explained the menu options at our lunch at the “Swan” Inn. Our afternoon village tours were a great opportunity to walk off lunch before our evening return to London. Our simple day trip to the Cotswolds for lunch became a most memorable experience thanks to our tour guide David and Viator. We highly recommend this tour.
tour guide was very nice and accommodating, he provided a lot of information on the tour, we had about 4 stops in different villages that had very beautiful landscapes, lunch was very good in very cozy Swan hotel, you can pick your lunch selection from fish, meat or vegetarian option.
A superb tour. Our tour guide, Julie was so knowledgeable about the area. We had tickets for a Play back in London that evening. The return trip is always difficult because of the traffic . Julie and our driver were very accommodating, and with their help we were able to make the start of the play on time. They went “above and beyond”.
You're pretty much on your own at each stop, which some people will enjoy more than others. Frankly I was a bit disappointed in the four small towns...they were more commercial and less quaint than I was hoping for. But I am not sure that's the tour operator's fault.
My husband and I chose this tour because we really wanted a "Cotswolds only tour" as compared to other tours where Cotswolds is just one of several places visited in a day. I want to thank our guide, David, who did his job very well. He shared so many interesting historical background and cultural information. We had four major stops with ample time to go around and enjoy each place. The lunch part was one of the things I have been looking forward to in this tour and I have to say that I enjoyed my main course choice - baked trout. This is a well-planned tour and well-managed, too. I highly recommend this tour to those who want to experience England's countryside. Value for money!
