    KEVIN. Our guide was fabulous. Funny, knowledgeable, kind. Nothing was to much and the day was extremely easy.
    This tour gives you the very best of what to expect in the Cotswolds. We wish we could share w some a longer tour.

    Love the opportunity to get out and stroll around and visit the shops and times and photos. The day was beautiful and our driver was fabulous! Who is so well-informed I made it fun and interesting all day. His name was Bonnie! Would love to go on another tour with him in the future

    Andrew was an amazing tour with vast knowledge. Both areas of the tour were great spots. As a Downton Abbey fan, it was very cool to see a filming spot and learn a bit more about how the own was picked. Highly recommend this tour - the palace is spectacular, Cotswolds are a must-see and the little town was an added bonus.

    Catia, our guide was amazing. She knows everything and she tells us a lot. She is really inspiring to listen to and the trip wouldn’t have been the same without her.
    A little disappointed at the walk in Oxford, a lot of construction were going on and they had stopped access because of a feast that was going to happen the day after.
    Otherwise, it was a fantastic trip.
    Also our busdriver was amazing.

    To be clear, our review of the day itself is 4/5; however, our review of our tour guide (Zozo) and quality of the tour is 5/5!!!

    Zozo was dynamic right from the beginning! He was very knowledgeable, but balanced when and what to share instead of overpowering. The chemistry he creates with his tours makes the day fabulous while knowing he is absolutely the one in control. Our family lost our camera along the way and he was very helpful in organizing another tour guide to pick it up and return it to London so we could pick it up the next morning! Thanks Zozo!

    Note: we knew the tour day was going to be long, but the travel through the Cotswolds puts you quite late into Stratford cutting that experience too short (and therefore lacklustre). Still very grateful we checked off so many iconic sights in one day!

    Thanks Nicholas for your humour, commentary and guidance on the day! He was nice enough to take photos of me since I was travelling solo! The whole day was a highlight with a few hours at each place to roam around and have fun - and thanks to Oedelia for getting us to each place with a lot of time

    Our guide Ali provided an exceptional tour of the Cotswolds! Being from the area, he knew the best areas to visit and provided many opportunities to get awesome pictures of our day. I would highly recommend this tour - so informative. It's like travelling back in time!

    This may be more a me issue but I did wish for more time at Blenheim (2 hours) and the last village (1, 20 mins). Should have picked the trip without Downton Abbey aspect (25 min), I'm almost positive there was an option. I'm a fan of the show/movies but those 25 mins could have been better added to the first or third stop. Guide and driver were great.

    We went on this tour on the 15th August. Mr Andy Sawyer was our tour guide The best part of the tour was Mr. Sawyer He was knowledgeable , patient with the tourists and had a good sense of humour. He regaled us with stories and historical details about every place he took us. His encyclopaedic knowledge about places, events and the history made the tour memorable. He shepherded us in such a way that we never felt shepherded . He pointed out buildings and places on the way , like the brewery outside London and told us stories about them . We wish him well.

    Had a wonderful time with Tisha and Armando on our trip to Cotswolds and Stratford upon Avon. Tisha had great stories to tell us throughout the journey, her sense of humor kept us awake on the misty Sunday morning. We were given enough time to explore each place and take pictures. Tisha individually spoke to each of us to understand and guide us if we needed help on our way back home, as the point to disembark was different from our boarding point.

    Thank you Golden Tours, Tisha and Armando for such a lovely day. Hope to meet again in future.

    This was one of the best tours I’ve taken! Chris and Tony created an enjoyable and fun day visiting beautiful places and learning a bit of history. Their small group tours make for a more personalized experience, something you will not get on big bus tours. Everything was very well planned and allowed for just the right amount of time at each stop. Their guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. I plan to take more of their tours next time I visit the UK. I highly recommend The English Bus!

    The tour was very well organised. Tour guide Catia was very very knowledgeable about British history inspite being a Portuguese person. Telling anecdotes about the event of the past. She was also very humorous and funny and kept the whole journey very light.
    Graham was our driver and he was very good in driving us around the all the places of interest and got us back to London on time

    Had a great day with Tom guiding around some beautiful towns and villages in Cotswalds. All had something special, but my favorites were Snowshill and Bibury. Thank-you for energetic guiding with a combination of facts, history and aneqdotes. Also safe driving on small beautiful roads off the main-road.

    This tour definitely made me want to see more of Cotswalds.
