We just returned from a two week visit to the UK. While planning for our visit, I knew nothing about the Cotswolds, only that a friend suggested we MUST visit there. My research led me to CJP Private Hire and Cotswold Tours. I initially dealt with Chris by email (and had the great pleasure of meeting him in person), but... More

No, it wasn't CJP's fault. It's our fault. We only had half day to spend. In spite of the timing, which was a Sunday afternoon, Chris agreed to tour us. We were coming from Oxford and Tony (the associate) picked us up from the train station at noon. Upon return, we had to catch the specific train for our prior... More

I took a tour with my husband to the Cotswolds on March. It was fantastic. Our guide Chris was excellent driving and giving a lot of knowledge including history, architecture and fun joking. It was a perfect trip, we really enjoyed it! We also visited Salisbury, Stonehenge and Bath. We were a bit wary of taking a lengthy trip, but... More

I took my wife out of London for a few days in the countryside to take in the early spring green and a bit of fresh air. Chris was the perfect guide with a lifetime's worth of local knowledge. We saw the beautiful vistas and local chocolate box villages well off the popular routes already busy with tourists. Chris was... More

A group of four friends and I took a day trip with Chris and had a wonderful time! Chris knows all about the local history and was friendly and seemed like an old friend within a few minutes. I am not checking my notes,, but my favorite places were the old churches he allowed us to visit. it was like... More

It’s hard to imagine a more engaging, personable and knowledgeable guide to the Cotswolds than Mickleton’s energetic native son Chris Peake. Comfortable in the back of his Mercedes van, the two of us learned so much about the people and their pursuits, and the history and architecture of this fascinating area. Plus, in our day-and-a-half with Chris, he pointed us... More

Chris was unavailable during our visit but he arranged a tour with his associate, Tony. To say Tony knows the Cotswolds like the back of his hand is an understatement, he knows them better! From the incredible cottages to the breath taking views, our family of four including a teen and 11 year old were thoroughly entertained. Tony is a... More

My wife, mother (82 years old), and I had a 2-day tour with Chris in May 2013. It was incredible! Much more memorable than an impersonal bus tour or just driving around. We were visiting from USA, no car. Chris took us all over the area in his beautiful SUV, regaling us with anecdotes of the area and its people.... More

I don't suppose I'll be breaking new ground with this review inasmuch as I will mention Chris' charming personality, sense of humor, storytelling ability, knowledge of the territory and expert driving, but even so it is worth mentioning that my wife and I had one very entertaining and enlightening day with Chris last May. Chris picked us up at the... More
