Really enjoyed this trip. We visited four towns, a mixture of big and small which gave a great overview. Commentary was informative and lunch tasty. Would have liked to have a packed lunch so we could see more of the village in the lunch town as after lunch we only had 10 minutes to explore. Apart from that perfect.

Probably the most enjoyable of all of the tours we took - wonderful guide whose passion for English history was exciting - smooth Mercedes bus - very comfortable, but no bathroom on board. Confusing to find the embarkation point so leave plenty of time to get there, especially if taking the London Tube Underground system. The Cotswolds is a charming area, lunch was excellent - wonderful day in the country

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 La Vacanza Travel. We highly recommend this tour.
