Chris with CJP Cotswold Tours was the ultimate guide and entertainer...very knowledgeable about the whole area. He drove us through so many interesting small villages and hamlets with incredibly beautiful scenery. Thank goodness he was driving because the lanes are so narrow. Having him as a tour guide is the perfect way to visit the Cotswolds...The Slaughters, Barnsley, Cirencester Chuch,... More

In early June, my friends and I travelled to England, and CJP Tours arranged everything for our three-day trip in the Cotswolds. We exchanged emails over several months before the trip, and both Chris and Ruth were always prompt in replying to me. Chris is so kind and suggested lots of places to visit including 'off the beaten track' ones... More

Our family of five came to England this summer and it was the first trip overseas for our three sons. We spent the first day with Chris in Bath, seeing the Roman ruins and other fun attractions. The second day was spent in Chris' neck-of-the-woods, The Cotswolds. His knowledge of the area is superb and he has a lot of... More

With detailed instructions from Chris Peake of CJP Cotswolds Tours, we started our day with a wonderful train ride from Paddington Station in London to Honeybourne Station in the Cotswolds. Chris made the suggestion of taking the train due to the London traffic for the Queen's Birthday celebration. His idea was met with some trepidation as train travel is not... More

I wish I could give them more than 5 stars!! Our driver, Tony, was fantastic. Use CJP! They won't disappoint. Tony took us to major parts of the Cotswolds but also little out of the way places. He answered every question, told stories about each town and took us to the most amazing restaurant for lunch - right on top... More

Chris is a skilled, courteous and entertaining guide. 8 friends had a wonderful trip with Chris. He maintained his patience with multiple backseat drivers even while he was under the weather for a few days. Thanks Chris! We now have a friend in the Cotswolds. You are the best!

The first time we came to the Cotswolds years ago we rented a car and drove ourselves. We had nightmares for months afterwards, so this time we decided to go with a guide and driver, and what a different experience it was. Tony picked us up at our hotel and off we went. He was such fun to be with... More

What an absolutely super vacation! From the start, Chris and Ruth were wonderful and patient with my many emails, listing the various things that I wanted to do and see once I arrived. And then there was Tony. There he was when we landed (even though we had been hours delayed by our flight), a twinkle in his eye and... More

Our day with Chris was perfect! We went to the most charming villages, lunch at a perfect inn, meandered the lanes in this magnificent region. Not only is Chris very knowledgeable and very personable, he's also an excellent driver. We highly recommend a day with CJ P tours, and then spend the rest of your week going back to revisit...

Chris showed us around his beloved Cotswolds through very interesting and adventurous stories. He was full of anecdotes and historical information, which made these fantastic little towns seem even more like a wonderful fairy tale, where actually Tolkien got his inspiration for the Lord of the Rings. It's a trip worth experiencing!
