James (Jamie) was timely picking me up from the train station. He has a very nice van and was a wonderful driver full of information of the area. He has a pleasant personality and it very fun to spend time with. I highly recommend him and look forward to hiring him again. Thank you Jamie for the lovely day!

This was a relaxing and very enjoyable trip to several beautiful golden stone villages, each with its own unique character. I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jamie as he explained the history of the villages, not just as they related to the wool trade, but also other aspects of their history. For me the highlight was our time in Castle Combe, the setting for at least two well known movies. It is a village that appears frozen in time with only a passing car reminding one that it is indeed the 21st century.

we had a great time with Jamie. He did a great job of showing us the Cotswolds from a locals perspective as he lives there. Always on time with great ideas.

We really enjoyed the tour. The back roads Jamie chose in the Cotswolds were beautiful and the villages chosen were charming.

Fabulous tour from start to finish. We spent 8 hours with Jamie and saw a range of Cotswolds highlights. He knows all the back roads and little villages so we stayed away from the crowded bus tours venues. Great conversationalist too. We visited a half a dozen towns; he knows just when to tag along and then when to hang back and let us go off on our own. Next visit to London we plan to take a different tour with him. Pricey but worth every penny.

5 out of 5 rating for our tour of the Cotswolds with James. The tour provided us just what we had expected with opportunities to walk around the towns we visited. Grand vistas and James had good knowledge of the region. A most enjoyable day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lisa! Great showing you and Colin around for the day! All the best for the future! Jamie

Jamie was wonderful! When we had a travel snafu, he was flexible about rescheduling times and reworking stops to accommodate our time frame. We had just recently lost our camera on London public transportation and Jamie went above and beyond to help us find the numbers to contact for lost-and-found on the Tube and the train. This was certainly not in his job description and was very much appreciated! Jamie was knowledgeable and energetic and we appreciate the introduction to mushy peas! Thanks, Jamie!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Barbara, glad you enjoyed yourself and hope you enjoyed the cruise!

We learned that Jamie grew up in the Cotswolds and that was clear very quickly. His knowledge and passion for the area was quite apparent. He was personable, friendly, and patient with our group of seven, which included three kids. Without a doubt I would highly recommend Jamie.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Shawn! Great showing you and the family around the Cotswolds! Take care and all the best!
