My name is Ken Fowler and I was born and educated in the Cotswolds. I am passionate about my heritage and love to share it with visitors and friends. I am offering personal tours of the Cotswolds in my air conditioned VW Sharan which can take you where a tour bus might struggle. I am completely flexible and will be there to act as your driver, guide and friend. I can pick you up from a local hotel, or, if you are coming from London, I can pick you up from a local railway station such as Charlbury, which is just over an hour from London, so returning to London in time for dinner is quite feasible. I will of course return you to your hotel or railway station at the end of the day.

Ken took us on a full day tour of the Cotswolds on April 25, 2015. Our initial interaction regarding scheduling and an itinerary was so welcoming and easy. Once we arrived, we made various changes to the day, in part because my wife had taken a bit of a fall when we arrived in London and had to limit her... More

I echo all the reviews below! Ken picked me and my husband up in Oxford, took us to several charming Cotswold towns, and dropped us off at our new hotel in Cheltenham. Highlights were Bampton, the town used for filming Downton Abbey, and Burford, the town where Ken grew up. Amazing to see the church that has been there for... More

This summer, my family of five traveled to England and the highlight of our trip was, without a doubt, the day we spent with Ken Fowler touring the Cotswolds. Not only does Ken have first-hand knowledge of every square inch of this beautiful area, but his wit and kindness and willingness to cater our tour to the myriad interests of... More

Ken is very knowledgeable and gave a fantastic tour. Since it was mid-December, daylight was short so we booked a half-day tour with Ken. It was great that he tailored our tour to our preferences. In our case, we expressed interest in the local architecture and he made a point of showing us some great examples. We even made a... More

On a recent trip to the UK with my wife and daughter, we booked a day-long tour of the Cotswolds with Ken, and it was one of the most enjoyable excursions we've ever made. While we have visited the Uk many times, we mostly stayed close to London. My wife has always wanted to explore the Cotswolds, but it always... More

My wife and I booked a one day excursion with Ken in September 2014 and our review was posted that same month. As stated in the review we were extremely satisfied with the tour and feel that Ken treated us with professionalism and courtesy at all times. He could not have been a more wonderful host. The review of October... More

If you're planning a trip into Cotswolds then Ken is the man you need to book. He informed us of the exact train and time to book from London along with the full itinerary of the tour and was very flexible on what we wanted to see while we were there. He was at the station waiting for us when... More

We had one day Cotswolds tour with Ken. He was "born and bred" in Cotswolds and knew the area very well. We even visited some "secret" locations where tourists don’t normally visits. The visit to Bampton was “must” for Downtown Abbey fan. The lunch place Swann Inn was excellent. They had the best Fish and chips I ever had. –... More
