A Cotswold Tour to Remember A Cotswolds tour with Jim Gladwin is like the difference between having a tailor made suit versus getting one off the rack. My wife and I arranged for Jim to guide us on a half day tour of the Cotswolds on September 26. Being limited in time, we had a small request for Jim, “Show us the towns and countryside you consider the most representative of the area.” Jim delivered in spades, although we never got to see his favorite fishing hole.Jim and his family are long time residents in the the Cotswolds and his local knowledge was evident in every place we saw. Jim is a delightful English gentleman who quickly discerned what highlights would give us the best overview of the Cotswolds. He charmed us with stories and took us to sights other tours may miss.He pointed out photographic opportunities as well as accommodating requests to stop for more pictures. Taking country lanes, we avoided the crowds, but got to see beautiful vistas, market towns, and stone homes that are typical of the Cotswolds. Our tour passed too quickly and Jim returned us to Moreton-in-Marsh for our train back to London. We highly recommend Jim; a memorable day awaits.
A must do! My mom and I wanted to visit the Cotswolds for years but struggled to find a way to do it with ease. Jill and Jim to our rescue! Jill was quick to respond when we reached out to plan our trip. We booked a 6 hour tour. We met Jim at the train station and immediately loved his charm, local knowledge and great sense of humor. Jim provided fun facts throughout the day and showed us things we wouldn't see on other tours. The whole day felt like an outing with a close friend. The Cotswolds are absolutely beautiful and seeing it from a native's perspective really added to the experience. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. I highly recommend booking a tour with Jill and JIm.
Superb Father Brown Tour Jim took us on a 4 hour tour of key locations that have been used in the BBC Father Brown TV Show. Jim was the perfect guide for us as he also is a Father Brown fan. We covered locations throughout the Cotswolds. We had traveled all the way from Australia to stay in the cotswolds because we are fans of the show. Jill and Jim did some good planning that delivered an excellent tour and really exceeded our expectations. Well done Jim and Jill.
Amazing experience! We are a spanish couple..we had an amazing day tour around cotswolds..jim and jill are lovely people and know all history and curiosities about this area...really amazing and recomendable experience!!
Lovely afternoon tour of the Cotswolds Our recent four hour afternoon tour was perfect for our group of 4 adults. We only had a short time to spend in the area and Jim was able to show us both the breathtaking landscapes and the hidden secrets of the area. Jim has extensive knowledge of both the history and architecture of the Cotswolds. We learned all about the thatched roofs! Our tour was a great value and the cost was very reasonable compared to other guide companies in the area. Communication in termsof the booking was prompt and Jim picked up up at the train station which was very convenient. I recommend Cotswold Tours by CCT without reservation. Thanks for a lovely tour.
Amazing Cotswolds Tour We took a 4 hour tour with Jim and loved it totally. Jim knows the area very well and we felt like visiting Cotswolds with a local friend. Highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in visiting Cotswolds.
A Memorable Day with Gentleman Jim Today we had the pleasure of touring the Cotswolds with the charming Jim. Born & bred in the area Jim’s knowledge is vast and he shares this along with his love of the Cotswolds most generously. We can’t thank him enough for creating some wonderful memories for us.
Bespoke Cotswold tour Jim met my wife and I at Moreton in Marsh train station on June 20th for a private tour of the Cotswolds. Jim tailored our tour based on our interests of the area. Jim was an expert on the history, culture, and the people who make up this beautiful part of England. Jim was a true english gentlemen the whole trip. I highly recommend CCT tours for both private tours and transportation within the Cotswolds.
Hire This Service! Once you start researching local transportation options in the Cotswolds, you will find they are limited. I arrived by train at Moreton, and there are no rental car outlets in that village. I was focused on that immediate area to visit gardens, and really didn't want to go to Stratford to pick up a car. Instead, Jill and Jim Gladwin came to my rescue! Starting with picking me up at the rail station, we set an itinerary of pickups and dropoffs at the sights I wanted to see. They were always precisely on time in their silver Mercedes, and were clear and exact on where we would meet. They held onto my luggage when needed, and were unfailingly cheerful. Jim pointed out the footpath for my walk from Hidcote back to Chipping Campden - I would have missed it if he hadn't shown it to me on the way to Hidcote. Jill even charged me less than our upfront agreed upon total because I shared the ride from the rail station. Don't even think about driving in the Cotswolds; just call the Gladwins!
