Go Cotswolds provides guided day trips of the Cotswolds from Stratford-upon-Avon at an affordable price.

Scheduled Tours

We run tours of the Cotswolds throughout the year on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Priced at just £35 per adult and £25 per child (under 16; under 5s go free), we’ll pick you up from the Stratford-upon-Avon area and show you around the sights of the Cotswolds; this beautiful, fascinating and historic part of the UK that we like to call home.

Speciality Tours and Private Hire

On days we don’t have a scheduled tour, our 16-passenger minibus and driver is available for speciality tours and private hire. Why not arrange a private, bespoke Cotswolds tour for a large family outing, client entertainment or an office social? We can also provide group transport for any occasion – ideal for airport transfers, team or club travel, stag/hen parties and more.

  • Tom Benjamin is a tour guide extraordinaire! He is a well-informed local who provides a lot of anecdotal stories that make for an especially interesting tour. He’s the nicest guy…AND he went the extra mile (literally), going out of his way to make sure we got to see the Cotswolds.

  • What a perfect day we had with Tom! {He} was very friendly, informative and entertaining. He is a local so he knows everything about the area but has also travelled all over the world himself so it was a real pleasure to talk with him about all themes that interested us foreigners, like the British way of life, education and many more. We appreciated the personalized service we got from Tom and GoCotswolds is a fantastic way to see a lot of the beautiful countryside for a very reasonable price.

  •  Tom showed us his playgrounds, literally, as a local boy who grew up loving his neighborhoods. We stood on top of Dover’s Hill, visited Chipping Campden and St James Church, moved to Broadway Tower, Stow-on-the-Wold, pretty Bourton-on-the-Water and a secret village where we were the only tourists. The tour ended with a visit to the Rollright Stones. Tom gave us insightful narrations everywhere we visit. Glad to have ‘discovered’ Go Cotswolds
