We had a wonderful tour of the Cotswolds. Chris is very polite, informative, conscientious, and passionate about his homeland. I traveled with my 77 year old mother in a less than optimum time - having just landed from the U.S. at 6 am into Heathrow with little sleep - it was our only opportunity to see this charming area.

We were impressed by Trip Advisor's reviews of CJP Tours and emailed Chris Peake and he responded quickly. We worked out a plan for our trip to the Cotwolds in early May. Chris recommended Broadway as a central location and a B&B, which happened to be the one we were considering. CJP picked us at Heathrow and toured us through... More

My mom and I just finished up a 2-day tour of Cotswolds with Tony from CJP Tours We saw and learned more about history, culture, customs, architecture, and geography of the area than I ever imagined. Tony was not only a great guide but a fabulously interesting and friendly guy to chat with about life in general - which made... More

We met Chris on a full day tour of Cotswold our daughter had arranged, which started from our hotel in Broadway. Although it was a rainy end- of- March day, we didn't feel it because of the friendly atmosphere he established from the moment we met. The information he gave enriched with anecdotes was unforgettable.We visited small villages and towns... More

Six of us spent a day with Chris as our guide and driver. It could not have been better!!!!! Our train from London was delayed due to a signaling problem but Chris and Ruth were right on top of it....helping us navigate to a different station to meet him and Chris probably missed his dinner because of making sure we...

In March, my parents and I went on a tour of the Cotswolds with Chris. In short - it was excellent. Chris was the perfect guide - equal parts informative, entertaining, flexible, and friendly. We didn't know much of anything about the Cotswolds going into the tour, so didn't really have any thing specific on our list of what we... More

CJP is first rate - this was our first full day in England and...we blame jetlag but...we missed our train stop and Ruth kindly got ahold of Chris to pick us up at the wrong stop - the rest of the day was just uphill! It was such a pleasure to spend the day with Chris, learning of the places... More

Chris Peake was our private guide of the Cotswolds and I would 100% recommend his services. He picked up my family of 5 at our hotel in London and his welcoming, vibrant and humorous personality put us all immediately at ease. There was never a lull in conversation and historical information as we toured his stomping ground, the northern section... More

I would like to start by just expressing how thankful we are to have chosen a tour with CJP Cotswold Tours! After reading so many positive reviews on here I thought CJP would be the ideal tour to make our trip a memorable one as I was looking for an unique chance to propose to my girlfriend of 6 years!...
