Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A peaceful escape to a quaint and picturesque region of England. Have a traditional lunch in an old English restaurant, visit teahouses and soak up the charm of the Cotswolds.
Depart central London by comfortable, air-conditioned coach and venture into the countryside on your journey to England’s oh-so-pretty region of the Cotswolds.

As you travel, listen to your guide share interesting information about the region’s history and attractions, from its stone-built towns to its idyllic villages and lush, rolling fields.

Have your camera at the ready as your coach enters the undulating Cotswold hills, and stop first in the lovely town of Burford, famous for its wide main street and houses built from differently hued local stone. Enjoy a short stop to visit the tea houses and shops ranged along the street, and then continue to the picture-postcard village of Bibury. 
Stroll around the almost impossibly quaint 17th-century weavers’ cottages at the heart of the village, and then travel to an old Cotswolds hotel to enjoy a 2-course lunch from a menu that includes classic English dishes such as bread-and-butter pudding for dessert. As you eat, soak up the medieval atmosphere of the oak-beamed restaurant, and admire the stone fireplace that bears what are thought to be witches’ marks.



Duly refreshed, journey onward to the village of Bourton-on-the-Water and enjoy around an hour of free time here to explore. Then, make your last stop at Stow-on-the-Wold, a small market town that’s one of the Cotswolds’ most charming spots. Get another spell of free time to delve into this picturesque place, perhaps discovering its charming tea and gift shops, and snapping photos of its limestone townhouses.
Finally, take your leave of the Cotswolds and return to Victoria in central London where your tour finishes in the early evening.

Have been to the UK 3 times and finally had the opportunity to do this tour. Highly recommend it. Beautiful drive there and back and the quaint little towns are just fantastic.

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.

Beautiful day, guide was very knowledgeable and well spoken. Just enough time everywhere. Be aware that you could hit traffic and not get back until after 7.

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”.

Great time. Director and driver were fun. Nice lunch. Easy way to travel. Lovely scenery. Would do it again.

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!

Our tour guide (Lucy) was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Lunch was mediocre compared to other tours i've been to. The sites are awesome however the time given was too short. Got to rush back to the bus with all the 4 stops. It would have been better to have only 3 stops and give more time for tourists to spend time in these beautiful places.
