Could start a half hour sooner to allow a few extra minutes at some of the stops. One stop was 20 minutes where 30 was needed.

I cannot say enough good about this trip!!! It was a wonderful experience. Jo was our tour guide and I would recommend her highly, especially if you’re traveling with kids. She made the trip informative and enjoyable for everyone, all 3 generations! Go and ask for Jo!

Our guide was very good and knew so much about the villages that we were visiting. The tour started and ended on time and took us through such picturesque countryside. We took the train from London to Oxford and were met at the station by our guide. She was very friendly and offered many good suggestions.

How wonderful to have a fellow South African (Jo) take us for a tour around the Cotswolds! She was friendly, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and a great driver as we navigated narrow roads in rainy weather. A great option for a solo traveller. Cannot recommend this tour (and company) enough. And the villages were just beautiful, especially with all the autumn colours. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
