My favorite part of the tour was seeing the old, charming, and picturesque cottages in the villages where we stopped. Also, seeing the gorgeous and colorful gardens in front of the cottages was truly breathtaking. Colin, our tour guide and driver, was extremely knowledgeable about the Cotswolds since he lives there. Colin was very personable and told many funny and interesting stories about the area. I loved that Colin stopped to take a group photo at a gorgeous stop with rolling hills and plenty of sheep near and afar.
We were lucky the weather was gorgeous with blue skies. Colin also recommended certain places to photograph and even took a few of us on a 20 minute walk in the town of Bourton on the Water to show us a scenic area off the beaten path. He offered this walk to anyone who wanted to avoid the crowded town, and it was well worth it. Colin also recommended eating spots when we stopped for lunch which was very helpful and saved time.
All in all this experience was fantastic, and I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who only has a limited time to spend in the area. I would definitely repeat the experience should I visit the Cotswolds again.
