This ancient town has many beautiful buildings. From St James Church right through to Dover's Hill, all nestling in tranquil and beautiful countryside.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Broadway Tower, Middle Hill, Broadway WR12 7LB England

The Tower is an iconic landmark on top of the beautiful Cotswolds escarpment. It was the brainchild of the great 18th-century landscape designer, “Capability Brown”.

Stop At: Snowshill, Snowshill, Cotswolds, England

A charming village, secretly nestled amidst the hills, is a must-see on our tour. It is known for its exceptional unspoilt beauty and for the views over the valley. The beautiful English cottages are a lively mix of architectural features, bright colours and delightful scents.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Stow-on-the-Wold, Stow-on-the-Wold, Cotswolds, England

At nearly 800ft, Stow is the highest of the Cotswold towns, located on the Roman Fosse Way and at the point where several roads meet, hence an important trading centre. It has a long history; it probably dates from a prehistoric fortified settlement on top of the hill and had a special importance in the English Civil War. The last battle was fought close by in Donnington back in 1646.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Lower Slaughter, Lower Slaughter, Cotswolds, England

Lower Slaughter - the slightly macabre name comes from the Old English for 'muddy place' - are linked by the tiny River Eye, a tributary to the River Windrush.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Bourton-on-the-Water, Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswolds, England

Bourton-on-the-Water is a popular destination with gently flowing River Windrush running through the centre of the village and crossed by attractive little bridges. There is much to see in Bourton on the Water and it is suitable for visitors of all ages especially families; visit Birdland Park and Gardens – home to a wide variety of exotic birds including penguins, flamingos, macaws, emus and birds of prey; marvel at the incredible detail of the buildings in The Model Village – a 1/9th scale replica of the centre of the village; the Cotswold Motoring Museum has seven unique galleries housing a collection of vintage cars, a fascinating toy collection, exhibitions and children’s TV favourite little car ‘Brum’.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bibury, Bibury, Cotswolds, England

Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a 20-minute drive from Bourton-on-the-Water. It’s easy to see why William Morris called Bibury ‘The most beautiful village in England’ – wonderful stone buildings strung out along the banks of the River Coln.

Arlington Row, owned by the National Trust, is one of England’s most iconic and photographed sites – it even appears on the inside cover of UK passports! Originally built in the 14th century as a monastic wool store, it was converted in the 17th century into a row of weavers’ cottages.

Cuma was wonderful! He showed us around some quaint towns in The Cotswolds and also around Oxford. While he told us of some important places, he also gave us free time to explore on our own. Cuma customized the trip so that we could have the best experience. We would definitely recommend Cuma and this tour to anyone visiting the Cotswolds. We had a perfect day!

We were visiting the Cotswolds recently and had the pleasure of taking a tour with Cuma. He arrived promptly at our hotel in Moreton in Marsh in his beautiful and very clean and comfortable car. He explained our itinerary for the day and we were off to our first stop. Cuma is a wonderful driver and guide. He has vast knowledge of the area and pointed out many small details to us that we would have missed if we were on our own. We went to so many beautiful spots with the chance to walk around quite a few villages.We had a lovely day with Cuma and we recommend his tour if you will be in the area.

Not only were the Cotswolds exceptional, so was our tour guide Cuma! We let him chose our village destinations and he did not disappoint! He knew so much of the local history and truly made our day unique and special. If you need the services of a wonderful Cotswold tour guide, Cumo is your person. We felt as if we had made a new friend on our holiday!
