    My husband and I were spending a week in London and decided to take a day trip to The Cotswolds -the epitome of the quiet English countryside and it gave a welcome break from the crowds of London. We met Graham in Oxford and there was only one other person along for the tour.

    Graham did a great job showing us around. We had about seven stops, and had time in each place. A few places we would not have been able to find on our own. There were six people in our group, which was manageable. Graham was very patient.
