Depart your Stratford hotel or Stratford or Leamington Spa railway station by minivan bound for the Cotswolds.

Stop first at Dover’s Hill to admire the gorgeous panoramas and then continue to Chipping Campden. After free time to enjoy this historical market town, stop to admire the views from the castle-like Broadway Tower and pass through a ‘mystery’ village—often missed by visitors—on route to Stow-on-the-Wold.

Explore or have lunch (own expense) at this delightful town as you wish before heading to Bibury, once dubbed England’s ‘most beautiful village’ by poet William Morris. See Bibury’s Arlington Row—arguably the Cotswold’s prettiest row of cottages—and then trace country lanes to Bourton-on-the-Water.

Learn about this exquisite riverside village, famous for its low bridges, before enjoying free time to stroll and shop for mementoes of your day.

Your tour then concludes at your original starting point.

As much as you can see in one day

Our Guide Tom took us to places which are quiet and not flooded with tourists. We got a lot of information about the area and all the nice villages. The tour was perfectly organized and we saw really a lot in only one day.
