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.

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.

Ken lives in the Cotswolds and knows it very well! It was a wonderful tour, very relaxed and he was interesting and fun. Extra time if you want to see something a little longer and we had a great day!

Ken is like an old friend who takes you around the area he loves. He is low key with engaging stories of the area that really provides you with an understanding of the Cotswold and what makes them special. He will show you details that you would miss if you just pass through some of the great villages. Highly recommend... More

We had a terrific day with Ken as our guide through the Cotswolds. He has a passion for this gorgeous area where he grew up! He adjusted the day a bit because of morning rain, and his stories kept us entertained. Ken has a great wit! We appreciated the history lessons along the way. We highly recommend this tour! Just...

We spent a full day with Ken touring the Cotswolds area. We did not have an agenda, we left it up to Ken to show us his Cotswolds. Driving through what appeared to be a winding, never ending maze of country roads we discovered little hamlet after hamlet, a step back in time to a simpler village life. The architecture... More

Everyone had told us we must visit the Cotswolds, but we don't like to drive when abroad. What to do? We could have spent days trying to make our way by bus to all the villages with the fascinating names, but that possibility seemed quite daunting. Then we found Ken online. His tour was everything we hoped for and more.... More
