      Full Day Tour of The Cotswolds area incl Malmesbury and surrounding villages
      The tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Bath. I can’t recommend this small independent tour company enough. From the first initial contact to the very last moment our tour guide Jules Landau was just the best. His wealth of knowledge of the area’s iconic churches and quaint villages is quite impressive. We visited Malmesbury and liitle hamlets like Tiiddlywink and Lacock. We got lucky as there were only four of us and the tour company didn’t cancel like some of the bigger tour companies would do. Also Jules accommodated our request to take a quick drive up to the Royal Crescent. We hadn’t made it there yet so really appreciated as wasn’t included in the tour we purchased. I highly recommend using this small hands on tour company. You won’t regret one single moment of it. Especially if you have Jules as your guide. One of the personal touches was the photos he took of us on the way and then shared them with us so we could just relax and take it all in. Karen, Danny , Mary and Wayne from Vancouver, BC

      Great Tour!
      Had a tour and it was great! Our guide was local and incredibly knowledgeable, personable and made this our favorite day on our trip to England. He took us places we never would have seen had we been left to our own devices.

      The COTTSWOLDS with an experienced local!
      We had a lovely time! An amazing drive through the Cotswolds with a wonderfully informative history and incredible views. We loved Simon who was knowledgeable, courteous and fun. He shared his experience as a local bringing it all into perspective for us. We would recommend In and Beyond Bath and Simon to anyone who was looking for an authentic experience driving through this gorgeous area. PS: we were a group of four adults who craved Cotswolds the history lesson.

      A Brilliant Day Out!
      Our Guide Max took my group of 8 adults around the lovely Wiltshire countryside, in one of the company's minibuses, in January 2024. He gave us a great day out which was so interesting, informative and fun, involving the history, architecture, culture, scenery and more, visiting Castle Combe, Laycock, Avebury and other places. Max was full of knowledge and such a warm, friendly gentleman. We all really enjoyed the day. We highly recommend In & Beyond Bath! Thanks Max!

      Not to be Missed
      My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Hidden Cotswolds & Dark Age England tour with Max with In and Beyond Bath. This was actually the first tour I booked for our two weeks trip to England. We loved it! Max was terrific. He was very informative and fun. Our tour included just three others which make it very private and engaging. I would and have highly recommended this tour and company to anyone visiting the area in and around Bath. You will not be disappointed.

      Wonderful tour from Bath to our destination
      We are from the US and were not planning to drive while in the Cotswolds, for everyone's safety, lol. We booked a few days in Bath but needed to get to our next Airbnb in Stow-in-the-Wold. We booked a guide from In and Beyond Bath for the one way trip and are so thankful we did. Our guide was amazing and tailored our trip to 2 locations we wanted to see. Not only was our guide, Jules, knowledgeable about the area, he was engaging, kind, and booked a wonderful pub for lunch. We didn't have to worry about anything. Would highly recommend. We communicated via email while planning the trip and Jules was very prompt to respond. We had reached out to about 2 or 3 other tours, but this one provided the best response and reasonable pricing for a private tour.

      Transfer tours - LHR to Cotswolds to Bath to London area
      Jules, Thank you for your assistance in making transfer tour arrangements for LHR to the Cotswolds, the Cotswolds to Bath, and Bath to Lacock/Swindon. Everything went perfectly! Jules II found us immediately at LHR, drove us to Greys Court for a visit, and stopped at Ebrington Arms where we had a lovely lunch before our Cotswolds drop off. Simon picked us up for our Cotswolds to Bath component and made modifications as necessary based on our previous experiences. He also coordinated our Bath walking tour and Bath to London area transfer. We really enjoyed our time with Simon and look forward to return. Sightseeing in the rain was balanced by...yes, more fabulous pub stops! Our family of four, including my husbands parents in their 80s, was so very well organized and thoroughly enjoyable! Thank you to all for great experiences in the region.

      Simon says...
      Let's see Castle Combe, Malmesbury, Corsham and Bradford on Avon, and away we went! It was a splendid day of touring beautiful historical places (with emphasis on the dark ages, which I was truly in the dark about before my guide elucidated me), stopping for coffee, tea and lunch in cozy pubs, being driven around through breathtaking country and spending time with a knowledgeable and delightful guide. I found myself wishing Simon were along for the entirety of my trip. The day tour was certainly time and money well spent. I would highly recommend In and Beyond Bath for sightseeing around the south Cotswolds. Jules went out of his way to accommodate my tour off-season. Many heartfelt thanks for that!

      Great Transfer tour between Bath and Swindon
      We arranged for a transfer tour between Bath and Swindon (convenient rail into London). Our interests are history, architecture and because it was fall, seeing some fall colors. Jules crafted a great itinerary and we enjoyed every bit of it. Jules is knowledgeable, personable and an excellent driver. We went to Avebury and enjoyed a delicious lunch before heading to Severnake Forest. We tromped all through the forest and had a great time. I highly recommend In and Beyond Bath. It was absolutely worth it.

      Excellent tour!
      We had an excellent bespoke experience with our guide Roland on our tour through the Cotswolds. We were delivered the promised off the beaten track tour and really appreciated how Roland highlighted interesting points and then listened and narrowed the focus to what we seemed interested in. I was not sure if I should spend the money when there were other tours available but it was very well worth the price!

      Fascinating Cotswolds with marvellous Max
      Thank you, Max, for a wonderfully relaxed yet action-packed day exploring the cutesy villages of the Cotswolds and the medieval market town of Malmesbury. You immediately put us at ease with your convivial manner and the friendly sparkle in your eye. It was an extremely well-paced and well-curated tour. You shone the spotlight on some fabulously quirky local characters as well as revealing hidden secrets about important figures in British history, bringing all these stories to life effortlessly. I also loved the traditional pub lunch (fantastic food). Conversation flowed, friendships were formed and we lapped up your wealth of knowledge on the rich heritage of this region. An absolute delight!

    Jules, our guide, was very informative and passionate about sharing the history of Stonehenge and the other places we stopped on our tour. We enjoyed Stonehenge very much.

    We would have liked more free time to look around at the various places we stopped at in the afternoon. Jules gave us more background than we needed for the two afternoon stops and it would have been nice to have a look around the villages and stop for a tea or snack.

    Hi Vickie, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad you enjoyed our time together although I'm so sorry you felt that I talked too much and didn't give you enough time to explore at your own pace. I'm usually pretty good at responding to guests' needs so I'll make sure I'm more sensitive in future! I hope the rest of your trip was amazing however, and wish you all the best with your travels! Warmest regards, and many thanks, Jules

    We simply cannot say enough about HOW AMAZING this day was, and how spectacular Jules our guide was. He is fantastically knowledgable and engaging, treating us to a day full of historic intrigue, classic sites and a charming, relaxing and intimate meal at a local tasty spot.
    Jules is very personable, and made us feel "at home" while we toured around Somerset. He is quite adept at making history both accessible and relatable. Our day with Jules was filled with laughter, awe and appreciation for the beautiful countryside that is Somerset and Stonehenge.
    We are a couple on our honeymoon and were with a young family - and all of us were equally tickled by the whole day. Will 100% book again with In & Beyond Bath and any other tours that have Jules as their leader!

    Oh my gosh! What a fabulous and touching review - I'm so sorry I didn't respond sooner (July 23) - I hadn't seen it until now - and you've just made my day! I'm so glad that our time together was so special for you both, especially as it was part of such an important moment in your lives. To be honest, it's always easy to have a great time as a guide, when you've got amazing people as guests, and that was certainly the case that day! Anyway, I hope you're both loving life still and moving forward together. Wishing you the very best, and many thanks (and apologies!) again, Jules x

    What an amazing experience we had on the Stonehenge and Secret England tour. It was a highlight of our time in England. Max was our guide and it was like traveling with an old friend. We really enjoyed the personal tour of Stonehenge and an amazing lunch at a cozy pub with a roaring fire on a very cold day. After that we visited a gothic church and a interesting castle. It was a very special day and would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

    Dear Jennifer, Thank you for your kind review of our tour. I really enjoyed meeting you and Keith and only wish that I could have made the weather a bit more welcoming (I don't have that special Viking ancestry to keep me warm!). I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in the UK. With best wishes, Max

    NO Regrets. Our guide Jules was amazing. He was intelligent, knowledgeable, affable, charming, engaging. He made our tour engaging, educational, and entertaining. I was sad when it ended. If I go back, I would take th9s tour again as it was so much fun.

    The highlight of our trip to England a few months ago. Jules is a fantastic guide. My wife and I took the tour with another couple. We were picked up in Bath, got acquainted and learned quite a bit on the way to Stonehenge, where we had a wonderful time. Lunch at a historic pub, then stops at St Andrew's Church in Mells and Nunney Castle. Look forward to doing their Cotswolds tour on our next trip to England.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our full-day tour of Stonehenge and the Somerset countryside. In addition to being an excellent small-group experience, the pacing of the tour was perfect. We didn't feel rushed from place to place -- the leisurely pace felt in-line with the tranquility of the countryside, and contributed to our ability to just immerse and appreciate every place we visited.

    Irina was our guide for the day and she was an excellent host. She was engaging and very good about explaining the background of the places we visited, answering questions and then giving us time to explore on our own. We learned a lot about the area and very much felt well taken care of throughout the day.

    Overall, this tour was the highlight of our trip to Bath. We look forward to exploring more areas with Around and About Bath the next time we visit!

    We had an absolutely magical day touring Stonehenge and Somerset with Nigel. His passion for and knowledge of Stonehenge completely enhanced our experience of seeing it, and made the ride from Bath to Stonehenge go by in a flash.

    Nigel also took us to some very off-the-beaten path sites, including a gorgeous church and small castle in the village of Nunney, a place I am certain I never would have been to otherwise as an American tourist. He had fantastic anecdotes and information about each site and was an absolute joy to spend the day with.

    Very highly recommend this tour for those who want to have a genuine and personal experience. It was a whimsical adventure that I will cherish forever. Thank you Nigel and Around and About Bath!

    I signed for a small group tour which ended up being very small, - just me. Nigel, my guide, explained it was unusual to not have more but they wouldn’t cancel because there was only one person. Right away I knew the group had integrity.

    Thus began one of the best days I’ve ever had while traveling. Nigel was an excellent guide and the weather couldn’t have been better. When we arrived at Stonehenge the site was enveloped in fog and set the mood for easily imaging prehistoric people moving about the stones. As the sun came out the fog burned off and the stones really stood out.

    Then it was out and touring about Somerset. My thanks again to Nigel for a glorious, unforgettable day.

    We spent a wonderful day with Nigel experiencing Stonehenge, a beautiful castle and lovely villages of Somerset. Nigel picked us up on time, explained how the day would unfold and asked us for our input. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and sites we visited and interesting to talk with. We stopped at two pubs, one for lunch and one for tea. Both were carefully selected with delicious food and charming surroundings.
