    We went as a family of 5 on this trip (ages from 33 to 74) and there were only 24 people in total on the coach so there was plenty of room and the coach was luxurious to say the least. No Wi-Fi though. Our guide was Gerry and he was brilliant. He kept checking on everyone during the coach trip and was very knowledgeable about the area and when he spoke he made you feel at ease and spoke to you on your level. A big hit with students I would imagine. Passed through some beautiful countryside and villages along the way and the aim was to show you a sample of the Cotswolds and Shakespeare. Our first stop was Bourton-on-the-Water and what beautiful place! A typical larger village that has a stream running through the heart and there were so many places to eat, drink and be merry. If you visit the Cotswolds put this place on your list. Next was Anne Hathaway's Cottage, where we stopped to take pictures of the outside, before we arrived at Stratford-upon-Avon, another amazing place where Gerry took us on a walking tour of the area visiting the places related to Shakespeare. I know the basics of Shakespeare but I never knew that he was such a complex character and I learned so much on this visit, helped by Gerry's narrative, that I can now bore the pants off people at parties. Again, plenty of food and drink places. We had to rush a little at the end as a couple had booked a view of Shakespeare's house and we had a slight problem keeping up but overall it was an amazing trip and made extra amazing with Gerry as our guide. We would definitely recommend this trip and found it great value for money.

    It was a fantastic trip and very well planned for a day, where we managed to cover all of Bourton on the water and Stratford upon Avon! Gery was extremely entertaining and his guided walking tours were very engaging. He was also very attentive to all of our needs. Would definitely recommend Discovery tours to anyone who wants to explore new places but have no idea how to go or what places to visit.

    Gerri, our tour guide, was very helpful and friendly as always. Our driver was a star as well. I totally recommend Discovery tours, and will definitely book another journey with them very soon.

    The places were beautiful. I wish we could have had a bit more time in each location and maybe visiting the first Cotswold town waking. Gerry’s guide was absolutely fantastic. Very professional, interesting and fun!
