Excellent tour seeing less well known but still beautiful Cotswold villages along with a couple of well travelled villages. Isobel was extremely knowledgeable and provided detailed commentary throughout. David drove us safely through the narrow roads. Both are very friendly. Highly recommended.

Outstanding Value and Hosts

Cotswold Summer Explorer | Oct 2019
Isabell and David are the most accommodating hosts and knowledgeable people. Anyone would be thrilled to take one of their adventures in the English countryside or towns. What an unexpected and fun filled experience for two American senior citizens. The pubs were great, the towns and local people so friendly and quaint. Rick Steves is making a big mistake by missing out on this team of professional guides and scholars so well versed in history and why so many of the stops warrant the time to explore them.

We were in London for a week and had never been to Paris. For us, this was a great trip. One couple vacationing without our children. Note that I couldn’t imagine doing this trip with small children due to things I will describe below. Pros: We were able to see the all of the major sites and do some shopping at our own leisure. The company met us on time and was very helpful with all questions. The instructions they provided were very detailed. Our seats on the Eurostar were great and together. Very satisfied with the travel company. You will get a Metro card for the day. You can ride the RER which is the train or the underground Metro. We did not try a bus. It is fairly easy and quick from the train station on the RER down to Notre Dame or transfer from there to the Eiffel Tower. Cons: Not many. The only negative is the RER and Metro are very crowded, but we went on a Monday. It really didn’t bother us that much, but with small kids it would not work. Also, prepare for a LOT of walking. If you are not up for a long day of walking, I would suggest a guided tour. You really don’t have time to go up in the Eiffel Tower or in the Louvre unless this is all you are doing (or unless you go to the Eiffel Tower first thing when you get there and have your tickets prebooked). Neither we wanted to really do so it worked for us. We just wanted to see the sites at our own pace which was great.

Tabby and David gave us a simply terrific tour of the Cotswolds - they know every lovely village and back road, and told great stories of the area throughout. A very fine day.

Downton Abbey and the Cotswolds | Jul 2019
Isabella was an amazing guide. The entire trip was so informative and enjoyable. It was nice to be part of a small group, traveling in a very comfortable mini-bus. Of course, seeing "Downton Abbey" was the highlight of the experience! It was a very hot day and David and Isabella had plenty of cold drinks which was such a nice touch.

Our tour guide, Isabel, and our driver (and her husband), David, made it a most enjoyable experience. From providing a lively and informative description of the sites and their backstories, to taking us to delightful villages not inundated by tourists, to providing 20 pence for entry to WCs along the way 😉, we were well-cared for. I highly recommend this tour!

We had Helen and David as our guides and both of them were amazing! They were well informed and were warm and kind. There are about 4-5 places where they stop, but we left with memories of 10 different villages with stories for each! Definitely recommend this tour and would happily do it again myself!

We loved it! Our guide was very knowledgeable as well as being easy to listen to. She gave interesting stories and context, as well as great facts, kept us entertained and informed the whole way. It was great being in the smaller bus because it felt more personal. There was just enough time at each stop, we loved going through Shakespeare's birthplace and Anne Hathaway's cottage again as it had been 22 years. Plenty of info about Oxford, the University and the surrounding area. I'd highly recommend this team!

Cotswolds and Shakespeare Tour | Jul 2017

Tour guide lady was excellent. She had so many stories to tell about places we visited or passed by, she was informative, funny and entertaining. I did not feel rushed at all and thoroughly enjoyed the visits to Shakespeare's birthplace and Anne Hathaway's home for both of which you have to pay an extra 16 GBP. The van was comfortable and the tour was paced well. Would recommend highly.
