    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: The Great Tew Estate, New Road, Great Tew, Chipping Norton, Oxon OX7 4AH, UK

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Stow-on-the-Wold Market Square, Stow-on-the-Wold England

    The centre of the wool trade in the Cotswolds. Here you'll have time to browse among honey-coloured buildings, cosy pubs, narrow streets, interesting shops and tiny tea rooms.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Lower Slaughter Museum, 14 Mill Ln, Lower Slaughter, Cheltenham GL54 2HX, UK

    Our next stop is the picturesque village of Lower Slaughter, one of the most romantic villages in the Northern Cotswolds and set in the most amazing countryside. Larger vehicles are not allowed into this village.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Bourton on the Water, Windrush river, Bourton-on-the-Water England

    Our next stop is arguably the most famous Cotswolds town and regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England; Bourton-on-the-Water. Known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' there is plenty to see and do with a wealth of attractions, shops, restaurants and tea rooms. Here you have free time to explore and enjoy some lunch.

    Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

    Stop At: Burford Library 86A High Street, Burford OX18 4QF England

    On route we go through some enchanting Cotswold villages to the town of Burford, often called the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds'. A very iconic town and home to one of the most beautiful and ancient churches in the region. Stories aplenty!

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: St Mary's Church, Swinbrook, Burford England

    Travelling along the stunning Windrush Valley visiting hidden villages including Swinbrook. One of the most secluded villages and home of the notorious Mitford Sisters.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Minster Lovell Hall & Dovecote, Minster Road, Minster Lovell, Witney England

    A real highlight of the tour which boasts plenty of Cotswold stone and thatched roofs, as well as holding the title of being the region's most haunted village. Minster Lovell is perhaps best known for the ruins of its 15th century hall, owned by generations of the Lovell family. A true hidden gem!
