If you’re not staying in Stratford-upon-Avon it’s possible for you to join the tour too! If you’re staying in the Cotswolds you can join the tour at Moreton-in-Marsh or Chipping Campden and if you wish to join the tour from London, Oxford or Birmingham you can catch the train to either Moreton-in-Marsh or Leamington Spa rail stations where we provide pick-ups. Details for how to do this can be found here: www.gocotswolds.co.uk/blog/joining-a-go-cotswolds-tour-from-london-oxford-or-birmingham.

Relax in the comfort of our 16-passenger minibus as Tom transports you around the Cotswolds, providing commentary at various stops during the day. History, architecture, culture, art, folklore – there’s lots to tell you about the Cotswolds so as well as enjoying the sight and views of this beautiful region you might learn something new too!

Don’t worry; you won’t be stuck on a bus all day! There are plenty of stops throughout the day where you’ll get the opportunity to explore some of the charming Cotswolds towns/villages on foot.

We’ll visit the breathtaking viewpoints at Dover’s Hill and Broadway Tower, admire the small market town charm of Chipping Campden, stop for lunch in the beautiful town of Stow-on-the-Wold and stroll through the picturesque villages of Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water. We’ll also pass through many other quaint villages, including a stop at a secret, off-the-beaten-track village where you’ll probably be the only tourists!

Lunch is not included in the price of your tour, which gives you the option to dine at one of Stow’s fabulous pubs, tea rooms or cafés, or to buy or bring your own packed lunch if you wish.

We’re very flexible so if you have onward travel plans after the tour or are arriving on the morning of the tour (from Birmingham/London/Oxfprd) for example then just let us know. We’re very accommodating as we want as many people to see the beauty of the Cotswolds as possible!
