    I loved this tour, it was a great way to see a beautiful part of England. The tour had just the right amount of stops and was timed perfectly. Accommodations at The Ivy House were wonderful, I was only sorry I couldn't stay there longer. I appreciated the maps with a suggested walking tour of Bath and Oxford. These were a thoughtful touch and helped ensure I made the most of my visit.

    Tour guide and driver Jaime, (who was knowledgeable and accommodating) brought me and my wife (we're from hot, humid Singapore) to England's less hectic part of the country and we were enchanted by the beauty of the rolling plains and the Avon River in Bath, and of particular mention the comfy and cozy Ivy House @ Cirencester where we spent only a night but was quite rested and host Paul and hostess Sue who wipped up a lovely English breakfast before we leave for the rest of our tour. Relaxing indeed.

    We very much enjoyed our trip with our driver, Jamie. He was very informative and very pleasant. The Ivey House was excellent

    We enjoyed every minute although we had hoped to get pictures of villages with thatched roofs. Our guide and driver, Helen, was superb. Very knowledgeable about the entire route and history of the area and of England as a whole. She went out of her way to make sure everyone was taken care of and comfortable. We have travelled extensively, overnighting in facilities ranging from tents to castles and everything in between. Our overnight stay on this trip is among the top 10% of everywhere we've stayed.

    An overhyped drive on narrow English roads with brief stops in a couple of Cotswolds villages. First day stopped at Avebury to see Henges, large stones on the ground that only a Druid could love. Got to Cirencester on eastern edge of Cotswolds for overnight, but after shops, places of interest were closed. Accommodations were fine, but not what originally selected. Second day much better with two stops then Oxford, but just dropped off with little guidance as to where we were. Driver had an excellent knowledge of the area, but his accent made it difficult for this American to understand. If you really want to visit Cotswolds go by train/car stay a few days and take local tours.

    We had a wonderful time on the uncrowded small bus tour with John. I can't imagine a tour being any better. Showed us things I didn't expect to see. He was entertaining and shared his time with us throughout the journey. Would recommend this type of trip to people that want to see things they probably would not find on their own. Thank you!!!!!

    Our guide with Rabbies (John) was excellent. The tour itself was fun and informative. We saw many little villages in the Cotswold region.Only negatives: poor accommodation for overnight; not enough time in Bath and especially in Oxford; "luxury" coach is an overstatement - it's a basic minibus fyi.

    A great way to see the English countryside. Jeff was great. So was the Victoria guesthouse in Circencester - better than most of the hotels I've stayed in. Very happy to have done this.

    Great tour and fantastic guide!

    This is a great tour and is an amazing taster for the cotswolds, oxford and bath! James is a brilliant driver/guide and told us many interesting stories about the places of interest we drove by. Being a 2 day tour only, it doesn't give us a lot of time in each place but is just right to explore the major sights of an area, enjoy the great food there, and soak in the beautiful scenery. I want to suggest Rabbie's tours that they have a 5 day cotswolds, bath and Oxford tour with the same itinerary so that there is more time to spend in certain places at leisure and spend a night in Oxford and Bath as well. The B and B accommodation with no extra cost, included with the tour is exceptional. Surely go for that option as the rooms are large and full English breakfast is super. Being a small group the tour is private and exclusive with not a lot of hustle and noise. The villages of Cotswolds- Bilbury, Stow on Wold etc are gorgeous just like a painting, Oxford is magical and there's a lot to explore in Bath as well.There are great eating options throughout the tour, quaint tea places for cream tea and scones in the cotswolds, old pubs with a brilliant Sunday roast, pie or fish and chips if you fancy. Highly recommend this tour if you have only two days and are keen on exploring these places. It is a great experience,
