Description
Start your day trip from central London and travel to Burford in the Cotswolds, where the town’s magnificent high street features every variety of Cotswold stone. You'll have time to visit the town's small tea houses before continuing to Bibury for a short walking tour around the village.

Lunch beckons and what better way to satisfy your hunger than with a fabulous 2-course lunch in the heart of the Cotswolds? The hotel restaurant boasts a spectacular oak-beamed ceiling and a huge stone fireplace bearing supposed witches' marks, and serves a fabulous range of traditional food, including classic bread and butter pudding for dessert.

Continue to Bourton-on-the-Water in the afternoon, and stretch your legs during a brief 1-hour break. Then, journey onward to your final stop at lovely Stow-on-the-Wold. Use your free time in the village to explore at leisure and scout out the charming cafes, souvenir shops and photo-worthy limestone houses that line the streets.

Leave Stow-on-the-Wold in the late afternoon, and travel back to Victoria in central London where your tour finishes.

Very interesting tour. We had a great day seeing lots of history and beautiful places. Our tour guide, David, was very knowledgeable and fun guy to be with. As well as coach driver. Great time.

The most fantastic day ever . Gorgeous towns and villages.
Plenty of time allocated to see everything without feeling rushed.
Thank you for a special day to remember.

Amazing tour! Finally I have visited Bibury and the other 3 nice villages.
Given the public transport is not very convenient for Cotswolds, I think this is a very good tour, taking people straight to some of the best villages. The tour guide was very nice, friendly, knowledgeable and caring. I managed to take a lot of nice photos during the trip, although i think the time we were given to spend in Bibury was not long enough.
The lunch in Burford was good. The only thing was the bar where we had lunch was a bit small, and crowded. There was a long queue for toilet after lunch. But that's a minor issue.

I enjoyed the day in the Cotswolds but was not impressed with the lunch at The Swan.

We had an excellent time on our visit to the Cotswolds. Carol, our guide, imparted a wealth of information on us and I learned much about the countryside people, plants and animals. The villages were lovely and quaint, and lunch was very nice. It was the quintessential English experience.

All in all a nice trip. People in the Cotswolds were lovely and there are some nice shops. Lunch was executed efficiently, as if the head waiter at the Swan hotel couldn't wait to have the job done of everybody having their lunch. I didn't like his tone of voice. Driver was lovely. The guide didn't have lunch with us and just waited for us to finish. The guide was knowledgeable about the tour, but more interested in talking to the person next to me on the coach, who was Australian, when I tried to strike up conversations. I sensed some bias there.

The sights were okay. However it was not worth the time and expense in my opinion.
