Tourism Awards

At Go Cotswolds, we’re incredibly proud of our small family business. We have established a fantastic reputation over the years! Read more below about our tourism awards.

Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice Award

Tripadvisor is the world’s largest and most popular website for travel and hospitality reviews. Winning a Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice Award is kind of a Big Deal!

We received the Traveller’s Choice Award in 2020 and 2021, and its previous incarnation, the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, in 2019, 2018 and 2017!

This tourism award certifies that Go Cotswolds is in the Top 10% of all Tripadvisor listings around the world. When you book a tour with Go Cotswolds, we guarantee you’ll receive our excellent reputation and customer service.

Don’t just take our word for it though! Check out our exceptional Tripadvisor reviews. (Make sure you book your tour direct on our website though – you’ll always get the best prices right here!)

The Cotswolds Award for Best Tour Company

Organised by Cotswolds Concierge, The Cotswolds Awards is an annual celebration of all the fabulous businesses across the Cotswolds region. It includes businesses in sectors like tourism, hospitality, retail, and events.

We are extremely proud to say that we have received The Cotswolds Award for Best Tour Company SIX times in a row. In fact, despite stiff competition, we’ve won this tourism award every year since 2015!

In 2016, we also won overall Cotswolds Business of the Year. This was a fantastic achievement considering Go Cotswolds was only 2 years old!

Visit Britain “We’re Good To Go” Industry Standard

This isn’t a competition or tourism awards scheme as such. However, it was really important for us to be granted this Visit Britain Industry Standard in 2020 – the year that everyone would probably rather forget!

The COVID-19 pandemic forced Go Cotswolds to close for most of 2020, and the first part of 2021. However, because we were officially approved by Visit Britain as “Good to Go“, this meant that our customers could enjoy a COVID-secure experience during the times we were allowed to open.

West Midlands Tourism Award

In 2020 we were thrilled to be selected as finalists in the inaugural West Midlands Tourism Awards, where we received a Silver award in the ‘International Tourism’ category.

We were even more thrilled to be selected as finalists again in 2021, this time bagging Bronze in ‘Experience of the Year’.

Pride of Stratford Awards Finalist

Pride of Stratford 2019 tourism awardsAlthough we work in the Cotswolds, we are a Stratford-upon-Avon-based family business. So, in 2019, we were excited to be finalists for a Pride of Stratford Award!

Organised by a local radio station, these awards celebrate the best businesses, initiatives, charities and people in the district.

We were up against some stiff competition! Sadly, the Small Business of the Year trophy wasn’t ours this time, but we’re proud all the same! Lisa and her friend enjoyed a brilliant night out at the Awards dinner in Stratford-upon-Avon, too!

Travel & Hospitality Award for Best Tour & Activity Company

Travel & Hospitality 2017 tourism awardsWe were delighted to receive a regional award as part of the 2017 Travel & Hospitality Awards. Go Cotswolds received the award for Best Tour & Activity Company in Warwickshire.

These tourism awards recognise leaders in hotels, tour operators, experience providers, spa and wellness facilities, restaurants, and technology and innovation companies around the world.

Thank you to the mystery person or people who nominated us. We had no idea we were in the running, so it was a lovely surprise to find out we’d won!

Cotswolds Tourism Commendation for New Business

Cotswolds tourism awards 2015Go Cotswolds was just a few months old when this Awards scheme took place in 2014. To be honest, we didn’t stand much chance of winning! Nevertheless, we received a ‘Highly Commended’ certificate for our new business venture, which was amazing!

Little did we know it was the start of an award-winning journey!
