Die Reise nach Cotswold war eine sehr schöne Reise, wir hatten schönes Wetter und konnten somit die wunderschöne Umgebung bewundern. Die Dörfer waren sehr schön. Inm Pub hatten wir auch gut gegessen. Der Besuch in Blenheim, im Schloss war unvergesslich. Unser Guide eine Frau, wusste so viele Geschichten, es war sehr interessant und die kleinen persönlichen Anekdoten wirklich auch manchmal sehr lustig. Ich empfehle diese Reise sehr.

Lovely and quaint Cotswold villages, lunch was good (the portions were quite small though in my opinion), however it felt a bit rushed. I wish we would have had more time to enjoy Bourton-on-the-Water. There isn't much to see in Burford and it is perhaps not the prettiest of the Cotswold villages. Blenheim Palace was great and I had just enough time to see what I wanted to see there but I might have to go back some day. The guide was knowledgeable but not as charismatic or personable as the guy who did the Seven downs tour.

Our guide, Aileen, was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of history with us. She was also very informed about the attractions and gave us recommendations on restaurants and other places of interest to visit. The driver, Antonio, is a very good driver, ensuring the drive throughout was a comfortable one. The time allocated to all places was sufficient and we did not feel it was too rushed, which is normally the case for most tours. Highly recommend this tour! Thank you!
