“Meals at our hotel were superb, outstanding. Pub lunches were excellent. Our guide’s leadership was a high point of the trip — his knowledge of the region (topography, history, social and cultural characteristics), his overall concern for the group, his keen insight and well-developed sense of humor were magnificent.”
D Swoap     Clearwater, FL

“For the Cotswolds — an area steeped in history — one needs a guide who is steeped in the knowledge of it. Ours met this criterion to the max.”
J & C Tate     Malvern, PA

“It was a very friendly group — helping to make the tour an excellent experience. Meals were superb, both the quality of the food and the serving staff.”
