The beauty of a private driving tour is the flexibility it gives you to see the sights which interest you the most.  We have a recommended route but the itinerary is totally flexible so if you would prefer to spend longer in a place you like or add an attraction which interests you then we can accommodate you.

Our private tours last seven hours and can start and finish at the location of your choice.  The starting time for the tour is flexible and we can collect you from anywhere in the Northern Cotswolds area including Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon.  The tour is ideal for a day trip from London and the most cost/time effective option is to take a direct train from London Paddington to Oxford station.

If you have any questions about transfers from outside of the Northern Cotswolds then please send us an message.

If you want to see the Cotswolds, this is the tour to take. The van is super comfortable. A small group, so it's personalized and you get to learn a little bit about the others on the trip. Jo, the tour guide was an absolute joy. Fun and knowledgeable. She shared a sorts of interesting information. Don't hesitate.

What a wonderful day! Thank you to Ian for showing us all around The Cotswolds, even more beautiful than we imagined. All the thatched cottages, beautiful gardens and scenery. We loved all the bits of history and interesting stories that Ian shared with us as we went along. We mentioned that we really enjoyed Downton Abbey and Ian adjusted our day so we could fit in a visit to Bampton and see where much of the show was filmed. So amazing! I highly recommend this tour.

Thank you Ian first and foremost as we made preparations from the United States as first time visitors to England and my wife Linda’s longtime wish to visit the Cotswolds. You made it so easy to pick the right tour both scenery wise and affordable. The “Undiscovered Cotswolds” tour was made even more stupendous by Jo. Her passion, knowledge of every detail and warmth made for an unforgettable full day for my wife Linda and daughter Maria and myself. She exceeded all of our expectations on visiting this magical region called the Cotswolds.

Our group of four friends had a very memorable personalized tour. Jo was a wonderful guide and expert driver. A highlight was a visit to Hidcote Garden. Our group had really wanted to see a Cotswolds garden as part of the tour, and we were delighted with the choice Ian made for us. We saw some lovely places and beautiful scenery. The whole day was outstanding.
