    Best Cotswold tour is with Mel and Peter!
    , Jun 2022
    Mel and Peter were wonderful guides. They are very knowledgeable and knew all the best sights and photo opportunities. In addition they were very personable and a pleasure to drive around with. By the end of the tour we were very pleased that they were our guides. Best viator ever!

    We had a lovely time with Mal and Pete. My husband especially enjoyed having a break from driving so that he could just relax and be a spectator. Highly recommend!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Cotswolds with Mal and Pete. It was like spending an afternoon with good friends. They took us to both the “must see” spots that tourists love as well as little villages off the beaten path. They will personalize the tour to whatever your individual interest might be whether it’s history, shopping, architecture, or in my case it was gardening. The tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to England.

    Hi Helen. Sincere thanks for your kind words. It was our pleasure to have you as guests. We obtain great satisfaction in introducing nice people like yourself and Wally who appreciate the picturesque beauty of the Cotswolds. Kind regards and stay safe, Mal
    Very enjoyable day

    Mal is very knowledgeable and helpful. Gave us a lot of information and interesting stories about Cotswold. We enjoyed visiting all the charming and unique villages. Thanks much!
    We took several tours...
    , Apr 2022
    We took several tours while we were in England, and this was by far my favorite. The scenery was just beautiful! The villages looked like they came right out of a Jane Austen novel. Our tour guides were amazing! They were friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible. They even took the time to backtrack to a place we’d already been to find my daughter’s lost iPhone.

    Hi. Thank you for your kind words. We regret we were not able to locate your daughter’s mobile. Regards and stay safe. Mal
    Like traveling with old friends
    , Oct 2021
    My husband and I took the train from Oxford into Moreton-in-Marsh, where we were greeted warmly by Mal almost literally as we got off. We instantly felt comfortable with her and Pete, who acted as our driver. They were not only warm and engaging but incredibly knowledgeable about the Cotswolds. Their affection for the area was also obvious. Could you do it on your own? Maybe but you wouldn’t know what you were looking at or be privy to any of the local lore, which is more than half the fun. We visited quite a few villages, a number of which lend themselves to a dedicated weekend away. For us, it was just enough. A perfect day.

    One of the best tour guides we've ever had. Upbeat, informative, cheerful. They know the Cotswold inside and out, and were easily able to customize the tour to our needs and interests.

    This does not gets any more exclusive than what it is. You will enjoy bucolic scenery, great stunning views, idyllic cotswolds stone made cottages all over. It is almost a fairy tale. The best was enjoying this with the help of the hosts Mal and pete, they are so nive you would not believe it, besides being locals they have decades of experience in the hospitality business, so they sure know how to treat people and also their way around, not only the history of each plce, but the amazing stories behind each and every one of them. Can´t wait to go back, we alreday miss them, it was like visiting old firends!
