Natalie DetertUnited States
Anne customized the tour for us to meet a wide range of interests of our small group. She is thoroughly knowledgeable, personable, and professional. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and saw so much more of Oxford than we could have managed on our own. Worth every penny. Thank you, Anne!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Natalie, Thank you for your kind review. All the best, Anne
Michael BrownUnited States
The tour to Bath was excellent! Anne was extremely knowledgeable and patient with all of our questions. Mother-in-Law less Ambulatory than expected and Anne gladly pushed wheelchair and provided insight into exhibits. Adapted tour to include short stop in Bampton which fit walking capabilities much better. Extremely satisfied!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael, very pleased that you all enjoyed the tour. Anne

John WeiningerUnited States
Anne was very knowledgeable about the areas history and gave us a wonderful tour of Blenheim Palace, Churchill's burial site, and the Cotswold area. Anne went out of her way to try to customize our experience to see and do all that we requested. I loved that she took us on the back roads to see sites that you wouldn't see or experience from a tour bus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed the tour and thanks for your kind review.
Sari BitticksUnited States
Excellent tour, Anne and I had communicated by email and she included everything I had asked about. We went from C.S. Lewis to Tolkien to Harry Potter, plus lots of history. She chose a beautiful walk by the river and past a pasture. She even remembered to include areas of interest relating to the Jewish community. After the tour, she helped me figure out how to go to C.S. Lewis' house and grave. This is my much anticipated " trip of a lifetime". Anne was a big part of making it everything I had dreamt.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sari, Thank you so much for your kind comments. May you enjoy the rest of your trip. Best, Anne
Patricia A.United States
I recommend Anne as a guide for the Cotswolds; she was very engaging and knowledgeable about the area as well as English history. She went out of her way to make sure we had a car that fit our whole group for the 8+ hour tour. She also spent an extra couple of hours with us so we could see everything on our list.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. I am pleased that you enjoyed your taste of Blenheim and the Cotswolds.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to quality customer experiences and takes all feedback seriously. We appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of tour experiences.

Debi ClarkeUnited Kingdom
The students enjoyed their trip but the additional expenses for entrance fees after the guide had been paid for were thought to be a little steep and they were quite surprised that they were not included in the original fee.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very pleased that your clients enjoyed the tour, they are a lovely mother and daughter. I'm sorry to hear that they were surprised that the entrance fees were not included but it was made clear in the tour description.
Rodger B.Lafayette, CA, United States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Anne
Judith SlaughterUnited States
Anne was an exceptional guide. She made special arrangements for us to see the Upper Slaughter Manor House. We thought the highlight of our trip to London would be the Chelsea Flower Show. Instead, it was Oxford, the Cotswolds and, most of all, meeting Anne and having a fabulous tour with her as our guide. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am honoured to know that you enjoyed the tour so much, thank you. It was also a treat for me to go inside Upper Slaughter Manor. Anne

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Pleased to hear that you enjoyed it so much. All the very best, Anne.
Patrick GinleyUnited States
Anne organized a special driving tour of the South Cotswolds for us that was just a delight. It was beautiful and Anne's commentary of the history of the area really helped us to understand the area. We highly recommend Anne as the best tour guide that we have ever had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. Anne.
Teresa BaerUnited States
Anne's tour of Oxford was wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Teresa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, that is interesting, I did not think you would want to know about me!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure.
Jan M.United States
Anne is everything you could hope for in a personal guide. She is knowledgeable, punctual, flexible, and an excellent driver on those single track roads and busy roundabouts! Plus she is genuinely a nice person and pleasant to be around, which we were for four busy days that she orchestrated beautifully. If I could give 6 stars, I would.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jan, Thank you so much, it was a pleasure to show you my part of England. Anne
Nancy BuchananUnited States
Ann was an excellent guide. I learned a lot and I especially enjoyed the little inside stories she told about Oxford and some of its graduates.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to show you Oxford. I hope the trip to your old school went well and brought back many happy memories.
Hilda Ruth McIlrathCanada
Cotswolds trip took us through a beautiful area and we found this trip to be the easiest way to see this area in detail.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hilda, I am pleased that you enjoyed the beautiful Cotswold countryside on our driving tour. Thank you.
Thomas QuinnUnited States
Anne was very friendly well versed. She carefully explained the college system, she knew the back streets and took the time to show us places to visit after our tour as well as restaurant and shopping choices. It was graduation day at several of the colleges which made for a crowded city but Anne guided us around like a true professional. We even had an opportunity to visit the Shelley Memorial and a quick stop at the Turf Tavern. I would highly recommend this tour to all first time visitors to Oxford.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review, I'm very pleased that you enjoyed the tour.
Great tour with Anne yesterday. Punctual, polite, patient, passionate. Thank you Anne!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, I really enjoyed the day with you all.
James W.United States
Anne expertly guided us on a custom tour over the course of three days, encompassing the Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace, Stonehenge, Avebury, Salisbury and Oxford. Her knowledge of these areas, attractions and their history added immeasurably to our experence. And, she's good company to boot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. Hope you both enjoyed Birmingham as well.
Candis RobertsUnited Kingdom
No one could have done a better job showing Oxford at its most interesting. My guests for whom I'd booked the tour, varied in age, education and interests. Anne managed to arrange their tour so that each felt it was especially tailored for them. They all came home buzzing with excitement and, what was most rewarding for me, a burning wish to learn more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind comments. I hope your guests enjoy the rest of their time in the UK.
Virginia TinlingUnited States
Trying to see both cities in one day requires four hours in the car, and it was a Sunday, both cities PACKED with tourists.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ginny, I'm pleased you enjoyed the trip despite the long drive and the number of tourists in each city. The drive time has always been in the description and itinerary but I added a comment saying the cities are busy with tourists on a summer weekend.
Anne WhiteNewburyport, MA, United States
Anne was a wonderful guide. She would research questions we had Re: historical events and People. She took us to several different gardens sites, castles, some manors and churches in the Cotswolds, Oxford, and Bath. She has a wealth of knowledge in history and horticulture and Interesting tid bits that makes a site more meaningful. Another Anne M.

Leigh ThackwraySouth Africa
Anne was very accommodating in splitting our tour between Stratford and Oxford. With the limited time we had, Anne managed to show us all the historical highlights of both towns in an interesting and entertaining way. The teenagers in our group were also very interested in the Harry Potter aspects of the tour. Anne was the perfect guide for our group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much. Hope you enjoyed your few days in London.
Paul W.Scarborough, ON, Canada
We had a great tour with Anne. The communication and arrangements were very smooth. Anne answered our questions very promptly. The tour itself is very extensive. Anne has very deep knowledge of Oxford and this adds a lot of value. This tour is a great way to get an overview of the city and the history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much.
Mark McNeilUnited States
Anne did an excellent job showing our small group (three of us) major sites around Oxford. I had requested that she especially focus on sites of importance to the life of C. S. Lewis (since I am developing a course on C. S. Lewis) and she went above and beyond what I hoped for on this tour. Anne was a pleasant and thoughtful tour guide and all three of us were very pleased with how the afternoon went.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much.

Anne has vast knowledge of the Cotswolds and she was so accommodating! My mom, sister, and I had a wonderful day trip. Thanks Anne!

Jodi RyanUnited States
Despite the weather we had a wonderful tour of Oxford and Stratford on Avon! Anne was extremely knowledgeable and made the day very educational and fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. Come back again to see more of the country.
Cliff WhiteUnited States
Anne is kind, well informed and very funny yet very very professional! We enjoyed her so much that we offered to take hereto lunch during our tour. We remember a man challenging her knowledge about a "tiny piece of glass" in a Church window and she knew a bit more than he! Anne is great and we hope to see her again. My daughter lost an iPod on the train and Anne was kind enough to contact the train company for us. Thanks, Great Tour!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I hope Rachael gets a place in the university of her choice in due course.
Michael AllUnited States
Anne was a fabulous guide; very aware of what we wanted out of the tour, and thoroughly knowledgeable. She has a delightful sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and will highly recommend Anne to anyone who wants an introduction to Oxford.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much.
Excellent guide. Excellent service. Highly recommended.
Excellent guide. Very diligent. Highly recommended.
Barbara CoxUnited States
Rather than a standard tour I hired Anne to take me to five villages west of Oxford where my ancestors had lived. Some of these areas were a bit outside her usual circuits but she was engaged in my quest and reached out to people we met to help me make contacts. She is easy to talk to, has broad knowledge, and is a fine driver and navigator. I was a bit hesitant to book given the expense but now feel it was a very worthwhile investment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Barbara Thanks for your kind review. It was a great pleasure exploring west and north Oxfordshire with you in search of your ancestors. Anne
Nancy BabkaUnited States

Anne went beyond our requirements, she was positive, had a wealth of knowledge and was accommodating when we made suggestions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your kind comments.
David SeawrightUnited States
Ann is an exceedingly knowledgeable, conscientious and enjoyable tour guide. Her guided, day-long tour of Statford Upon Avon, the Cotswolds and Oxford for our party of 3 exceeded everyone's expectations. If we ever are within her areas of geographic expertise again we defintely will seek her out and we heartily commend her services to anyone desiring to be guided by a truly professional local guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful rating. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the day.

Tour was interesting and informative. Anne took the trouble to ask about my interests and incorporated them into the tour. I'd definitely recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much, it's good to know you enjoyed it so much.
Greg LoweUnited States
Anne did a wonderful job on our tour. Picked us up, took us through the English countryside, Blenheim Palace and through the town and university of Oxford. She also helped us find a tasty and economical spot to stop for lunch! Would recommend her to others as well, and we very much enjoyed discussing the political differences within our countries, English history as it related to the things we were seeing, etc.. She was great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much.
Judith GordonUnited States
Anne was a wonderful guide for Oxford. She picked up on each person's interests and tailored the tour to them. We were a 3 generation family who all enjoyed our visit and learned so much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for you kind comments.
Mary L.United States
My husband and I booked 3 days of tours with Anne. They were everything we had hoped for in providing historical context and local lore as we explored each beautiful area. Anne was very flexible about the schedule, and tailored the days to our interests and desire to walk. We entered lovely field paths that we never would have found on our own, and learned the names of local wildflowers and some geology along the way. Anne's stories have whetted my appetite to read more English history! Thanks, Anne!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, it was great to walk with you both and tell you about the Cotswold, and also interesting for me to learn a little about you.
Robert ReinhardUnited States
Mary L.United States
My husband and I loved this tour. Seeing the several related sites in one day really drove home the significance and interconnectedness of these incredible monuments. The expansive sites are well-maintained, and help to provide the appropriate atmosphere and enormous scale of these man-made creations. Great weather didn't hurt either. Again, Anne was so informative in providing historical context, and good pacing throughout a long day that did not feel rushed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comments. Seeing the prehistoric sites around Avebury as well as Stonehenge shows the magnitude of activity in the area almost 5000 years ago.
Mary L.United States
Because we booked 3 days with Anne, we changed the order and content of this tour which became our last wonderful day. We went to Stratford-on-Avon, Kenilworth Castle, the Slaughters and Bourton-on-the-Water. Shakespeare fans will enjoy Stratford, Elizabeth I fans and castle romantics will enjoy Kenilworth, and those who favor charming Cotswold villages and countryside will enjoy walking the Slaughters and Bourton which were a mellow way to end our trip. Thanks, Anne, for such memorable journeys!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again, thank you for your kind comments. We had a lovely three days exploring central England and saw lots of different places, and I really enjoyed your company.
Brian AdamikUnited States
Anne is great. She is super knowledgable about the history of Oxford and she offers up a lot of practical information that was helpful to me and my 17 year old son who is considering his education at Oxford.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Brian, thank you for your kind comments. I hope Chris was impressed with Oxford and gets a place at the university of his choice.
Jim BorzattiUnited States
Great tour! Anne did a fine job of driving us around and providing historical info concerning each area. We were absolutely delighted!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in England and the trip back home.
Joe Van SteenUnited States
We had an absolutely wonderful day on this tour. Anne was very informative and accommodating to our desires and we thoroughly enjoyed her company and knowledgeable commentary on the sites we visited. One of the best days on our recently completed three week trip to Great Britain. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get an in depth feel for this area and its history.
Christine B.United States
Anne was a joy to spend the day with! My husband, myself and adult son had a full day excursion to Blenheim and Oxford. She was full of information, not only on the car ride, but at the palace and in the town of Oxford. She took us on a little side tour of WC's grave and an adorable historic Inn for lunch. She was energetic, friendly, personal, and attentive to our questions. She also picked us up right at our lodging! I would recommend Anne's tour to anyone and hope to get back for another!
Dan CoombesUnited States
Anne was a terrific guide... asked us multiple times what interested us and adjusted the itinerary to include several side trips that delighted us. She's very knowledgeable and added insightful commentary along the way. We highly recommend Anne and this tour.
Beth ZeiglerUnited States
Anne was amazing. Very knowledgable about Oxford and Blenheim Palace. When we expressed an interest in learning a bit more about the Oxford Rowing Team and she took the extra time to make sure we had an opportunity to see the boat storage areas and talk with members of the team. My Grandson is still talking about the time she spent with him answering questions and providing additional insight into the tour and area. We can't say enough about her there's not enough room but we do highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Beth, Thank you so much for your lovely comments.
Anne was very knowledgeable and took the time to research all of the areas we visited.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in the UK.
Linda LudingtonUnited States
If I thought about it for days, I couldn't come up with a single thing that Anne could have done better for us. Her knowledge of the Cotswold seemed infinite, and she is a friendly and kind person. She made it clear that the content and pace of the tour were entirely up to us, and we spent a wonderful day with her. It was the highlight of our ten day stay in England. We are already making plans for a second visit next year, and we will probably spend the majority of our next visit in the Cotswold.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words. Best, Anne
Michael BreslerUnited States
Traveled with my 14 year old son to the Cotswolds for a day hiking trip with Anne M. The tour was composed of two beautiful hikes through the countryside. I highly recommend Anne as a guide. She listened to what I wanted from the trip and planned it to exactly match my request. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, I'm really pleased you had a good time. Hope you enjoyed the next day in ClueQuest.
Carolyn CampbellUnited States
Delightful day. Anne was personable, knowledgable, and accommodating. I would highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. Hope you enjoyed India. Best Anne
Judith McCluskeyUnited States
Ann was informative, knowledgeable and a delight to be with! I think we may have skewed her plans a bit when we did not take advantage of some side tours, but she rallied well and found other things for us to see. She seemed like an old friend by the end of the tour. It was the highlight of our trip. We would recommend her to anyone!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank your, you are very kind and it was a joy to show you around the Cotswolds. Anne
Brenda BrettschneiderUnited States
Great tour which we very much enjoyed. Anne was great to be with and she knows Oxford and it's history. We could not have had a better tour!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, it was a pleasure to spend the time with you. Hope the rest of the holiday with your family goes well. Best, Anne
Hi Anne Coupled with your guidance, my whole family enjoyed the walking tour in the Cotswold ; even my husband who got very tired towards the end. No regrets. You have been very accommodative and have made the walk more interesting. I shall definitely be going for more such walking holidays in the UK in my future trips here.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, maybe we will walk with each other again sometime in the future.
Sean M.South Africa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry that you did not fully enjoy the tour. You asked me to shorten the tour from 3 hours to 1.5 hours and to still see the colleges and famous monuments in the city. For me at least, it was rushed and I didn't have much time to tell you about the history of the university and the significant events which took place in the city. You also missed your train from London so were almost an hour late arriving in Oxford, and this also affected the timing.
Margaret ClarsonUnited States
We really enjoyed Anne M's tour and give her a 5 star rating and willl encourage freiends to use this service
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, it was good to meet you all and show you the city.
Bruce MacLeodRichmond, BC, Canada
Because of the similarity of the various towns in the Cotswold my recommendation would be that two, possibly three, be chosen with a plan to explore one or two in depth while still seeing the many interesting site in the district. Having said the above I acknowledge that Anne was extremely accommodating and was willing to arrange any stop or site we wished to make so the prearrangements where my responsibility. Anne was very pleasant and knowledgable about Blenheim and the Cotswold and we enjoyed+ our day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, we traveled a little further than normal, mainly because of the weather, as it was not really suitable for walking around, and also because I wanted to show as much of the Cotswolds as I could. However, I will take this into consideration in future tours.
Esther RobisonUnited States
Annie was knowledgeable, accommodating and provided a most pleasurable tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you.
David TurnerUnited States
Anne was wonderful. Great communication with us before our visit. We spent the entire day walking the hills and villages of the Cotswolds. Anne was informative, friendly, and a joy to spend the day with. We had a wonderful lunch at a small pub in a tiny village and had a great afternoon walk back to Bourton on the Water. It was a day we will long remember and we have Anne to thank for it. It didn't hurt that the weather was absolutely perfect too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your feedback, it is much appreciated. Happy hiking in the future in Britain and the more challenging Alps.
Carol CaswellUnited States
Anne was terrific! Communications with her prior to the trip were excellent and really helped to prepare us for the day. We, my husband, daughter and her finance, all thoroughly enjoyed the day with Anne. She is extremely knowledge and shared so much history along the way. There is no way we could have seen all of the sites ourselves and most certainly would never have been able to manage the drive through the small village roads. Thanks to Anne for a perfect day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. Have a good journey back to the US. Best, Anne
Glen DoucetUnited States
Anne knew all of the great spots to see in Oxford, which included, not only the university as well as the city outdoors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your great feedback. Hope you managed to get out to Blenheim. Best Anne
Corinne HendersonUnited States
Our day in the Cotswolds was exactly what we had hoped for. Anne shared the history of the area. She tailored the day to our wishes - discovered mid-day that my husband is a pigeon fancier - and took a detour to show him a dove cote. Fabulous day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great to spend time with you and nice to know that someone else shares my interest in dovecotes!
Donna KleinUnited States
We had a great time with Anne. She even arranged a birthday lunch for me at a really nice restaurant. My friend and I spent 2 and1/2 days touring Oxford and the Cotswolds in a very pleasant stress free way with Anne in charge. We can't thank her enough for making our trip a memorable one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Donna, Thanks for your recommendation, pleased you both enjoyed the tour and also your birthday lunch. Anne
Rod GloverUnited States
Anne provided us with the exact tour that we requested. She was very knowledgeable about Oxford and made sure we had the tour of the sites that we wanted. She was very nice and would recommend her as a guide for anyone. Thanks Anne for the tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rod Thanks so much for your comments, it was nice to meet you all and I'm so pleased you enjoyed the tour. Best Anne
Deidre Amon-MeitusUnited States
My time with Anne was sublime. Everything about the tour exceeded my expectations. When we met in the morning I was given a customized brochure detailing what we were to see that day. We then ventured out on a walk that was tailored to how energetic I was feeling that day. Every turn was breathtaking & supported by illuminating historical/topographical information given by Anne. I was enriched by the tour and feel I got a sumptuous taste of the Cotswolds. Anne's passion and knowledge are infectious.
Deidre Amon-MeitusUnited States
I could not have asked for a better walking tour guide than Anne. She was most considerate of what I wanted to get out of the day and the distance I wanted to walk, providing me with several options. There wasn't a corner we turned that wasn't visually breathtaking as well as supported by interesting historical information that enriched my knowledge of the area and historical England as well. If one is looking for a combination of mind, body and spirit for their time in the Cotswolds, Anne is perfect!
