A day touring the Cotswolds is truly a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of crowded and noisy London. About 1 1/2 hours driving along small gorgeous country roads, you are like in another land. The cottages and homes range from magnificent to charming, but what they all seem to have in common are magnificent trees and... More

A wonderful historic area in England. So charming, worth a walk through town. The narrow streets lined with beautiful stone buildings, many with stone roofs, causing them to dip with the weight. The landscaping is just gorgeous, the homes wire hanging baskets overflowing with colorful flowers. A very moving and inspiring area.

Wow! Three full days of fabulous scenery, history and historic sites with the BEST guide in England. We had a comfortable (Lexus suv) ride with many stops to visit/tour seeing and doing as much as we liked. Tim is accommodating and knows all there is to know of the Cotswolds. We stopped at the best places for lunch as well.... More

We had a whirlwind day trip through the Cotswolds enruote to Oxford. There are a whole string of villages with rivers running through the town. We went through Bibury, Buurton On The Water and Arlington Row. To say it is a pretty part of England would be to understate things. The thatched roofs, the stone walls, all make one feel... More

I toured Broadway and the surrounding area with Tim last year. He's totally knowledgeable about the area having lived there since childhood. My family left Broadway 1n 1889 and Tim went way above and beyond to help me find places that were a part of my roots. He's a delightful conversationalist and wonderful person. By all means select Tim if... More

My wife and I had only 1 day to spend touring the Cotswolds and are very happy we chose Tim to take us around. Tim was waiting for us in Moreton-in-Marsh on the train from London. I was very impressed with his knowledge of and long personal history in the area. He can trace his lineage back to 1100 A.D.!... More
