Private tour of the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is full of charming medieval towns and villages steeped in history. These areas grew very prosperous during medieval times because of the wool trade.
We will go back through time and visit these beautiful villages and towns, totally unspoilt for hundreds of years, and in between drive through the rolling hills of the Cotswolds admiring the amazing countryside.
My full day private tour takes you to the best parts of the Cotswolds, driven by me your private guide in one of my luxury cars - an S class mercedes or six passenger SUV.

I have a choice of two luxury cars.
The first is an S class Mercedes limousine, which offers the ultimate in luxury. The car is only three years old and is immaculate with all mod cons including leather seats, blinds, sunroof and air conditioning.
The second is an SUV which carries six passengers, has a panoramic sunroof and leather seats and is the perfect tour car. The car is brand new, very comfortable and has three zone air conditioning.

A Recent Review of this tour

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!!
