Very enjoyable!!
Frank_L, June 2023
We loved every minute of this tour! David, our tour guide, was very entertaining. All of the towns that we visited were absolutely storybook. We will forever remember this tour of the Cotswolds.
Small group/big fun
Hellen_R, May 2023
It was a marvelous tour. Our driver was knowledgeable and fun. We went down small, picturesque roads that big buses could not traverse. He recommended sights to see and best way to see them. Highly recommend!!
Wonderful Cotswolds tour
Chantal_Y, May 2023

Do it! You will enjoy !

Bus but no walking guide
Margaret_F, May 2023
Opportunity to see cotwsalds in a rushed superficial way with nice information while on the bus. Unfortunately, the tour guide separated from us when we went to the town and instead of including a walking tour, which every other small group tour I have done in other countries was included, we had to figure out based on short suggestion what to do. There wasn’t really much reason to pay for a small group over a large bus except a few drives that a large bus couldn’t manage
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi Margaret, We believe that travel is done best, not in a large herd, but in a small & friendly group. In fact, it is our aim to create tours that feel 'un-toury' in nature. Our Driver-Guides tell stories and provide key information that supports independent exploration; where each traveller can seek the things that interest them most. We do not shepherd our groups around locations because we want every traveller to have a unique experience. Additionally, in 'The Cotswolds' large groups of people walking together are not always appreciated. We always try to be respectful and maintain positive relationships with the communities we visit. I'm sorry that the trip wasn't to your liking, but as our reviews show, the vast majority of travellers enjoy the style of our small-group tours! Regards, John.
Beautiful, Hidden Gems of The Cotswolds
LoriZaviski, May 2023
We had such a wonderful time--our tour guide, Adam was extremely knowledgeable, and told us all about hidden gems which we wouldn't have discovered otherwise.
A day in the country
Angie_S, May 2023
Chris was a fantastic guide! Lovely day touring the English countryside. The tour was a good value as it’s a full day of travel. I only wish there was a little bit more time at our stop in Stow on the wolds
A Beautiful Day in the Cotswolds
Marcel_L, May 2023
This small group tour turned out to be a wonderful day. David, our driver and tour guide was not only knowledgeable but quite entertaining and funny through this entire trip. My only regret was that I wish we had more time in each village we visited. We also had the best fish and chips I’ve ever eaten. The Cotswolds are an absolutely beautiful part of the UK and we are so happy that we made it part of our itinerary. Thank you David for a perfect day!
Well worth it.
jacqueline_j, May 2023
This trip is a must for anyone wishing to visit the Cotswolds. Chris was a fantastic and knowledgeable host and made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped on the bus. Lots of lovely stops with ample time to grab local snacks and browse the local shops I highly recommend this tour.
Great day out would highly recommend this trip.
Marion_H, May 2023
Great scenery, lovely villages, great tour guide David. Very easy to book, board and return. The small group tour was very personable and chatted to fellow passengers. Guide was entertaining, kind and considerate. His knowledge on history and location was so informative.
Very pretty landscape
Stephanie_F, Apr 2023
Good trip to experience England’s countryside and small picturesque villages, away from the busy cities. Adam was our guide and driver. He was friendly and offered suggestions about where to go to best make use of the time we had in each place. It was an enjoyable day.
Enchanted world of the Cotswolds
Lynn_C, Apr 2023
Our guide Kevin certainly made our day memorable with his humour and lots of interesting information about the Cotswolds and travel tips. We appreciated the small group and comfortable Mercedes coach which Kevin expertly manoeuvred around the country roads. We visited three villages which was a perfect amount of time for morning tea and lunch stops and walk around to enjoy the vista. I can thoroughly recommend this tour for couples, singles and small groups.
Beautiful Cotswold
Doris_N, Apr 2023
Nice picturesque cottages and gardens in Cotswold. However disappointed with driver and guide, Adam, not as responsive and helpful as the other guides in our group ther tours booked with Viator
Great time!
Kyle_S, Apr 2023
Christian was a terrific guide and very informative. The ride was nice and scenery was lovely. I would reccomend this tour.
Fun and impressive
Alisa_M, Apr 2023
The trip was great. Kevin, our guide and driver, was very nice, helpful, friendly, and polite. My sister and I was very happy with the service.
A wonderful day away from busy London.
Michael_B, Apr 2023
We had a wonderful time in Cotswold. The 4 villages that we visited were unique in their entire way. We are glad we joined the small group tour. The van was comfortable and Kevin was a wonderful guide.
Terrific day!
Maria_M, Apr 2023
Excellent trip! The minivan was very roomy and seats were comfortable! David our driver was terrific! Would definitely use Gotours again! (If you get David as a driver make sure you ask him to sing on your way home! Awesome voice!)
A lovely day!
JenniferCataldo, Apr 2023
David was a delightful tour guide and a superior driver. It was a relaxing carefree day of beautiful surrounding and great recommendations. We loved each stop and thought the time spent in each was perfect. The bus was very comfortable as well. A lovely day and well worth the competitive pricing!
Awesome country villages
Craig_D, Apr 2023
Glen did an amazing job of pointing out things on our drive and giving us some history on the villages. Worth it to go outside of the city for a day!!!
Great experience
Allison_C, Apr 2023
All four stops had their own lovely charm. Jamie was a brilliant guide and I also enjoyed chatting with Christian. Very pleasant day, would definitely do it again. Perfect amount of time at each stop. Highly recommend! Thanks.
