We were looking forward to seeing the Cotswolds until we found out we would be crammed into the back row of a 16 passenger van with 4 people. Just miserable. We visited 4 villages with anywhere from half an hour to an hour and a half at each place. There was not much to do in any of them except walk around and take photos. The tour guide was difficult to understand and didn't give any relevant information while driving or upon arrival. We were dropped off with no guidance and no tour in the towns/villages. It was truly a wasted day in my opinion.

Christian was a fantastic guide. We got a little history about each village that we visited. He also suggested places that we might want to visit within each village, based on our intrests. The trip was fun and friendly.

New York Family with teenage kids in UK for the first time. We had the best trip to Cotswolds. Christian was a very experienced tour guide/historian/entertainer all rolled into one. Despite rain and traffic, Christian engaged our kids with music and history. We never heard -“are we there yet?”-amazing feat! He was meticulous about safety and gave sound recommendations on where to explore to make the most of our time. This trip was not hurried at all and just enough to connect with a peaceful place and friendly locals.
