“Fantastic tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We took the Cotswold Tour on a windy and a bit snowy day in March, 2013.
Our driver, Tim, was at the meeting point just in time and he was pleasant all the way to 5 o’clock. The bus was tiny, but perfect for a good drive on narrow roads through tiny villages.
Charming villages by the way. A camera is a ‘must have’.
We shared our tour with Australian, Chinese, Spanish and British holiday makers.
Now, do you know where the expression "Saved by the bell" comes from? Take the tour and you will find out! The stories Tim told us were very very very interesting and informative.
We HIGHLY recommend MadMax Tour! :)

“Excellent way to see the Cotswolds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The full day Cotswolds tour is an excellent way to visit the different scenic villages in the Cotswolds given our limited time in Bath. The driver showed good knowledge of the places we visited and gave prompt narration or information whenever we came across something of interest.

“Great way to see Stonehenge and English Countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Mad Max was highly recommended by the Tasburgh House in Bath. Since we weren't keen on driving on the left hand side of the road, going on a small van tour with two other passengers was comfortable and convenient. Our guide, Chris, was so knowledgeable about the historical sites and brought the small villages to life with stories of the area. Our pub lunch in Avebury was delicious. I would highly recommend this day tour to others.

“Great tour of The Cotswolds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I traveled to Bath purposely to take the Mad Max tour of The Cotswolds. From London I took the train to Bath from Paddington Station to Bath Spa. The tour was led by Gary who was a great guide, knowledgeable of the history and culture, showing his mini-van full of guests many places in The Cotswolds. Because of the rain and poor weather we did not take the optional part of the tour walking between two points of interest. Instead we made only stops at various locations where we all got out of the van and guided by Gary saw the beauty of The Cotswolds. We enjoyed all the photo opportunities as well There was also time for shopping. Gary phoned ahead to a restaurant for our lunch stop with our lunch selections made from a menu he passed around so that we could make our choices. This was an excellent tour. In addition, having traveled extensively for many years, the only souvenir I take home with me are photos of doors and, knowing this, Gary led me to a 400 year old door and explained why it was embellished with so many brass rivets - it exemplified wealth of the original owner. This will soon be hung on my Travel Wall full of doors from around the world. Thank you Gary.

“Thank you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic full day trip to Stonehenge, Avebury, Laycock and Castle Coombe. Comfortable travel, lovely fellow passengers, warm and friendly driver/guide - Andy - funny and informative. Great combination of sights, well organised and money well spent. My 12 year old son said it was "amazing" and I agree.
