Tour of the Cotswolds from Moreton-in-Marsh

There’s no need to worry about left-side driving, parking, or navigation on this Cotswolds small-group tour. Your friendly local driver-guide looks after the wheel and introduces you to each village and viewpoint—but with such a small group and three different stops for independent exploration, it barely feels like a tour at all.

We were blessed to do this tour today with Tom as our guide. He was spectacular!! Tom is passionate about The Cotswolds and his knowledge is huge. We visited some most delightful places with incredible architecture. The natural beauty is stunning. Touring with GO COTSWOLDS is definitely the way to go as the company is local, employs locals and is a family business. So go local for the better and deeper knowledge.

Ginny and Peter, thank you SO much for such a lovely review! I'm so delighted to hear that you had a wonderful day with Tom (I'm biased because he's my husband, but he is rather good, isn't he!?) and that you enjoyed your day in the Cotswolds with us. Thank you not only for sharing your Go Cotswolds experience with the Tripadvisor community, but for supporting small, local, family businesses like ours. We hope you'll be able to join us again one day :-)

Hightlight, looking over the valley from the viewpoint, sheep in the fields, lush green grass, trees newly in leaf, soft rolling hills in the background, listening to the sounds of the birds and sheep. It was as though nothing had changed for hundreds of years. The same in the towns, the main streets are exactly the same as they were a hundred years ago, all in soft yellow Cotswold stone, just have to ignore the parked cars. The mini bus was comfortable, good views from the windows. Colin our driver was an excellent guide, interesting and informative facts, he certainly knew the Cotswolds history and pointed out the highlights of the towns and villages visited. Plenty of free time to visit main parts, have refreshment and enjoy the ambiance.

What a fabulous review, thank you so much Suzanne! It was so lovely to have you, Chris and Sue on our Go Cotswolds tour recently, and I'm delighted to hear that you had an unforgettable experience with our super guide Colin! Dover's Hill - the peaceful place you mention at the start of your review - doesn't get too many mentions in reviews as the villages are the stars of the show, but I'm so pleased that you loved this special place as much as I do! It's the perfect place to start our tours since we can give you a fantastic introduction to what the Cotswolds is all about, to set the rest of the day in context. We hope you'll join us for another tour one day soon - perhaps take our Cotswolds Walks & Villages tour next time to see even more of the beautiful Cotswolds countryside :-)

Fabulous trip. Well worth it. Mark was very knowledgeable about the Cotswolds and kept us entertained well. The stops were well timed and you really felt like you had a great introduction to this beautiful area. Definitely recommend.

My sister and I had a wonderful day. Our guide, Tom from GoCotswolds, was very knowledgeable on the area. He made our day very enjoyable. The countryside and villages were so picturesque. We had free time to have a delicious lunch at a pub. Had time to browse through a few gift shops. Plenty of picture-taking opportunities. Also, the mini-bus was super comfortable.

We really enjoyed seeing all of the different market towns in the Cotswolds without having to maneuver the driving. We had an excellent tour guide (Colin) who was both informative and friendly. He told us of the events at the Olimpick Games at Dover's Hill that have enticed us to travel back in June. My husband and I were able to have tea and scone (first time to a tea house) at Lucy's Tea Room at Stow-in-the-Wold which was a fun experience. A great day!

Thank you for your lovely review Michele, it was a pleasure to have you and Michael on our tour earlier this month, and I'm so pleased we could squeeze you in! Thank you for your kind words about our super guide Colin, and for sampling some of the independent businesses along the way! We hope you'll be back to visit us again - and have a fun time at the Cotswolds Olimpicks!
