We are still just in awe of our fantastic tour around the Cotswolds with Jon. We spent two full days touring the beautiful countryside and small villages and we could not have asked for a better experience! Jon was a joy to be around and was so easy to talk with and has a clear passion and knowledge of the region. This was the best way to see the area and I would absolutely do it again...but only with Jon. Do not hesitate for one second to book a tour with Jon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Laura I loved every second being with you both and having the opportunity to show you the Cotswolds on our two day tour. I sincerely hope to see you and your family in the future and enjoy the rest of your trip on the U.K. Bye for now! Jon

This was a perfect tour for our first full day in the Cotswolds. Our guide Jon is so interesting himself and loaded with information about the MANY towns and markets and sites we visited. I don't know how he managed it, but we able to do just the right amount of walking (through town, across field and stream) and even the shopping was fun (we are normally not shoppers). Lunch in one of the Slaughters was just right, too. We were in the Cotswolds for three days after and this tour gave us our bearings.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jane, I really had a fantastic day too, it is so important to me to listen and understand my clients needs before each tour to give you the best tour possible, you were all great fun and I hope to see you all again sometime! Kind regards Jon Please let your daughter in law know I am very much interested in the SEO website job if she is interested in doing it?

Jon took us to places we never expected to see! Some wonderful beautiful little villages and hamlets! Jon has a great sense of humor that fit in well with us. I highly recommend him to anyone traveling in his area.
Mary WilliamsonUnited States
Highly recommend Jon, the "Cotswold Chauffeur." He was excellent - worth 10 stars!! Jon was knowledgeable, flexible, and had great ideas for our day tour. But he also listened to what we wanted, got to know us, and adapted the tour as the day went along. He was very flexible, non-intrusive, friendly, and respectful. He also suggested short walks along our tour, so we got off the beaten path to see the real Cotswold locale! Tory was quite comfortable and luxurious, too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mary Thank you very much for your lovely review - I had a great day too and would be great to see you again Glad you liked my new people carrier 'Torrey' she is perfect for the tours!! Kind regards Jon
Susan M.United States
We met Jon on the stroke of the appointed hour and he could not have been friendlier or more eager to tune into our interests and wishes for the day. His deep knowledge of the area and his interest in birds and the natural world informed our conversations. We came to the Cotswolds to attend a wedding and now feel fully prepped and steeped in appreciation of the history and stewardship that make these villages so special! Highly recommend spending a day in Jon's capable hands.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi S and G What a day and thank you so much for a great review! It was so nice to meet you both and I thoroughly enjoyed showing you both around. I hope you had a great wedding and hope one day to see you both again Thank you! Jon
Matthew KrasnerUnited States
Jon was personable and made us feel at home immediately. He had a general plan for over viewing the Cotswolds, but made it clear we could alter the itinerary, within reason, to suit our wishes. We mutually agreed that visiting cathedals and museums etc. was not our priority, but rather getting a sense of the countryside and the different sized hamets, towns and villages. So we spent the day visiting five or six venues, with time out for a lunch at a pleasant pub and concluding at a public garden.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Matthew I thoroughly enjoyed our tour and hope one day you will come back with your wife and see some more, we had a lot of fun!! Kind regards Jon
Julie FoxUnited States
Jon definitely deserves a 10 star rating! I was traveling in the Cotswolds with two of my sisters and we knew from the second that we met him that our tour would be be informative, but also incredibly entertaining and fun! We were in the UK for a little over two weeks and did a lot of traveling and sightseeing, but the day we spent with Jon was definitely the highlight of our trip. He has a wealth of knowledge about the Cotswolds, and shares it in such an engaging manner. A++ Julie, Mary and Veronica
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Julie Thank you so much for your lovely review - it was an awesome day for me too and I am glad you and your sisters had a great day - it was very much appreciated you took time out to travel from London for the day to see the Cotswolds. I very much enjoyed your company and hope to see you again in the near future. Best wishes Jon
Marla WolkowitzUnited States
It was important to our group of four that when we returned home we'd feel we'd seen and done it all in the Cotswolds. Jon kept us so busy each day and upon reflection we realize three days wasn't long enough. Jon was about the best guide we've experienced as seasoned travelers. We insisted he join us for lunch daily so we could continue to pick his brain A truly huge treat was walking the Wardens Path between Lower and Upper Slaughter. We have nothing similar where we live.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marla for your lovely review I enjoyed our three days immensely and I am so glad you did too. Next time you come back I will organise some other walks for you in the Cotswolds! See you again Jon
Marla WolkowitzUnited States
We were astonished to find Jon right there waiting for us at the port when we disembarked. Jon quickly learned all four of our names and used them throughout the glorious day. Our first stop was Stonehenge, the second Bath. Jon added to our experiences by adding information about the route we traveled. We found Jon extremely competent and delightful as more than a driver, a happy host. We intend hiring Jon again when we're lucky enough to return.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marla I am glad you all had a great time and I definitely would enjoy seeing you again for another tour in England! Thank you for your lovely review Jon
Joe DavisUnited States
We just spent two days touring the Cotswolds with Jon, and it was an unbelievable tour. He grew up in the Cotswolds and knows the best villages and within each village, the best houses, gardens, landmarks, and pubs. We appreciated his presentation of the history and culture of this beautiful area. His Mercedes V Class vehicle was very comfortable for four of us and our overnight bags. The highlight of our visit to England!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am really glad you were happy and pleased with the three day tour we arranged together, I am always open to suggestions to how many days we tour together and also willing to accommodate itineraries to my clients wishes - I enjoyed our tours thoroughly and sincerely hope to see you all again in the future. Kind regards, Jon
Steve KayUnited States
Jon is one of the best private tour guides we have hired. He is a punctual, knowledgeable, friendly professional who can customize his tours for you depending upon your preferences. He has deep knowledge of the history and culture of the Cotswolds region. Importantly, Jon is also a good listener, and his clients' enjoyment of the tour is paramount for him. Highly recommended, we are planning to return for a multi-day tour with him in the near future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steve Thank you for such a wonderful review and I am glad you both enjoyed your tour with me. The weather was perfect and for me, so was the company! Best wishes and hope to see you again Jon
Felicia PerlmanUnited States
Jon was fabulous. He took us to great hidden places we would not have found on our own. He provided us the perfect balance of guiding and telling us about the area and giving us time to wander/explore on our own. I lool forward to returning to the Cotswolds and touring with Jon again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Felicia, it was a very enjoyable day for me too and I really hope we can meet again to explore some more of the Cotswolds!
Marie CopelandUnited States
Jon Morehouse was an absolutely fantastic guide and far exceeded our expectations! His knowledge of the Cotswolds was outstanding and we loved that he took us to so many villages that were not loaded with tourist buses. He took us down many quiet lanes with gorgeous scenery. Jon was so personable and dedicated to tailoring the trip to our requests. We spent 4 wonderful days with him and were amazed at how much we were able to see because he was so familiar with the area. He has our highest recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marie for your lovely rating and review. I thoroughly enjoy multi day tours because we get to know each other so well and become good friends after - I hope to see you again one day to explore other regions of England. Many thanks Jon
Lewis BrownUnited States
Jon worked very well with our group of 4, listening to our desires and making adjustments to our itinerary to allow us the time we wanted to see sights without feeling rushed. He gave us great information and had a very easy and flexible style
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lewis Thankyou very much for taking time to write your lovely review for me. I hope to see you all again! Kind regards Jon
Frederick O'SuchUnited States
Outstanding. Four of us spent a memorable day with Jon Moorhouse. He shared his knowledge and insights on the history, the culture, the architecture and the food with us in a most enjoyable and relaxing way. Jon was quite flexible and willing to adjust the planned itinerary to our specific preferences. I would highly recommend using Jon if you want to see not only the villages but the beautiful countryside, often on back roads only known by a true local of the area. Clearly 5 plus stars!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Frederick Thank you so much for your amazing review, I am very glad you enjoyed the day with me and it was an absolute pleasure to show you around the area I love. Best wishes to you and I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in England See you again I hope Jon
Nuria AlvarezUnited States
Jon brought an excellent vehicle for the tour. He asked our preferences and planned accordingly. He even added a special stop to see the place where the wedding took place in the "Pride and Prejudice" series. He was talkative, informative, and professional. We had the best tour of the Cotswolds we could have had in the time allotted. He introduced us to the best ice cream ever! We would certainly hire him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nuria, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and show you and your daughters the Cotswolds, and I am so glad you enjoyed my wife's Ice Cream! I hope to see you all again Best wishes Jon
Karen B.United States
Our day with Jon M. was absolutely delightful in every way. Jon arrived exactly as requested in Bath, created a custom tour of several outstanding Cotswold villages, arranged a perfect lunch at a neighborhood pub, got us to Stonehenge as requested and then on to Salisbury and our next destination. Jon was deeply knowledgeable of the area, providing us a true "local" flavor. Don't hesitate to tour with Jon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karen Thank you so much for taking time to write such an amazing review about me and our tour together, you were all such good company and I thoroughly enjoyed the day too! It would be great to see you again if you come back to this part of the world to show you some more of the Cotswolds and surrounding area, Please say hi to Bob, Deb and Dan for me Happy New Year! Best wishes Jon
