Ian was a great guide - we were in a small group of eight ( in a small van) So he was able to take us to small out of the way charming villages, showing us how the people lived in thatched roof cottages, then driving through charming countryside before we got out for a walk around other beautiful and charming villlages. He was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and somtimes funny and a great driver through all the small out of the way roads, , giving everyone enough time for a walk, a drink and showing us where the best photo spots were. I would highly recommend this tour company .

If you have the opportunity to take this tour DO IT! It is so worth it. The villages you see are all so beautiful and unique and the guide Ian could not be more welcoming and friendly. He really goes above and beyond to make this an amazing experience and has a great way of telling the stories behind each place you visit.

It was very good! Everything as I have read from the review, particularly on the part that Ian, the guide, was from one of the villages and therefore he knows the place really well. As promised in the itinerary, Ian brought us to the lesser known villages, away from the bustle and hustle of the more popular villages. He did bring us to 1 village which was full of tourists, just so we can compare and contrast.
Very relaxing walking tour around the villages, suitable for the young and the old!
Btw, I had expected a much older guy...due to all the reviews read about him, his experiences, etc. But Ian turned out to be a young, energetic chap!

Because of the size of the villages this is the way to see these small villages. The tour guide, Ian, is from the area so knows how to transverse the roads and pointed out little known secrets of the area. This really beats the mega-bus method of sight seeing.

This tour was everything I hoped it would be and more. There were only four of us traveling in a mini van and we were able to go to small villages that our tour guide, Ian, explained would not be accessible if we took one of the big bus tours from London. Ian was incredible. He explained everything we saw and took us to a ruined manor house as an extra bonus. He lives in the Cotswolds so is a local who really knows the area. He seemed to really enjoy showing us around and even stayed to eat lunch with us in a local pub. He was the perfect tour guide and made us all feel special. I would highly recommend this small, intimate tour if you really want to experience this beautiful part of England and see some authentic, unspoiled villages.

Ian and his company are first rate. We saw so many awesome sights in the Cotswolds from a very comfortable van and on foot. You will love this tour.

El guía, Graham, muy simpático y agradable.
El conducía y hablaba, al mismo tiempo y sin micrófono.
Para los que entendemos inglés, pero somos hispano parlantes, se hace muy difícil.
Se puede solucionar con un mapa y
Un texto en inglés y traducciones.
Los lugares hermosos y Graham muy bien!!
