My name is Ken Fowler and I was born and educated in the Cotswolds. I am passionate about my heritage and love to share it with visitors and friends. I am offering personal tours of the Cotswolds in my air conditioned VW Sharan which can take you where a tour bus might struggle. I am completely flexible and will be there to act as your driver, guide and friend.

I can pick you up from a local hotel, or, if you are coming from London, I can pick you up from a local railway station such as Charlbury, which is just over an hour from London, so returning to London in time for dinner is quite feasible. I will of course return you to your hotel or railway station at the end of the day.

Cotswolds area is beautiful but vast and without a proper guide it is easy to get lost. My mom and I were because we found Ken. Ken is an expert when it comes to the Cotswolds (he grew up and still current resides in the region). Ken showed us around all the scenic areas and explained to us the rich... More

My husband and I found Ken through TripAdvisor and were immediately drawn to the fact that he himself grew up in the Cotswolds. We knew right away that he would be a knowledgeable tour guide; and we were not disappointed! We spent a full day with Ken driving around various Cotswolds villages and enjoyed ourselves immensely. He had an answer... More

There were four of us in our group and we all agreed this was the best day of our trip. Ken was waiting at the train station to pick us up when we arrived to start our day. He took us around the area to places off the beaten trail that we would have never found on our own. He... More

I had read about Ken on Trip Advisor and am pleased to say he is an excellent guide. We were an hour late arriving and thought we might have missed him but he was patiently waiting at the train station for us. I only wish we could have had more time to shop in the villages, so do plan extra... More

Ken stepped in at the last minute due to unforseen circumstances and guided me for three days in the Cotswolds (something impossible to do without a car plus I was travelling solo. He incorporated everything I had wanted to see, and added many great ideas of his own. He is a lovely person. You will enjoy your tour with him.

Ken's hometown is Burford (one of the pretty town in Cotswolds) and is knowledgeable of the area. He could customise the tour but if you are not sure what is the best way to plan the day, he does have a concise itinerary that brings you to the highlights of Cotswolds. Lunch at Swans Inn was great though we waited... More

Ken went out of his way to pick us up and take us to sites we had suggested, while also suggesting other sites. He was very knowledgeable, accommodating and kind.
