(3) Your Bespoke itinerary…
Long before your Cotswold Driving Tour starts I will create a Bespoke Itinerary for you for you that incorporates what you would like to see and where you would like to go. Please see an example of one below. It can also include stops for a refreshing morning coffee, a cosy English pub lunch and a smart Afternoon Tea. This is how I will create your itinerary:-
You send me details of
The dates you require me
Which hotels you have booked. I have listed the hotels I work with to give you some examples of where to stay. Please click this link to view them.
The places you would like to visit, such as:
Gardens, villages, countryside, great houses, churches, museums or anything else you would like to see. I have listed the places I visit regularly to give you an idea about where we can go during your tour. Please click this link to view them.
Or I can create a Themed Tour for you based on Standard Themes or ones you suggest. Please click this link to view them.
I will then create a Bespoke Luxury Tour of the Cotswolds that weaves together your requirements in such a way as to optimise your time at each location. This itinerary will include a map of the route we will take on each day booked. I will send you a PDF version of the itinerary. Please note, although I get most frequent requests for The Cotswolds, I can offer Luxury Tours across England as well.
You will then review it and e-mail me with your ideas about how I can refine it.
And finally I will refine it and re-issue to you, so that we are all set for when you arrive.
One of my clients asked me to arrange a Downton Abbey style picnic lunch, which I did in conjunction with a high-end local hotel that I work with. I became Carson for the duration and they had a wonderful time! So whatever takes your fancy, just ask me and I will arrange it for you.

Not a Standard Itinerary
I pride myself on providing Luxury Cotswold Tours that are individual and unique. I can do so because each one always includes all of the following…
I don't have standard itineraries. Each and every tour is tailored to your individual requirements. As you can imagine this means that I will have spent several hours putting together your tour before we meet; but that is my guarantee to you that you will get exactly what you wanted, not just the places that the average tourist wants to see. Moreover, on the day we can vary the itinerary to suit your mood. If you really like a place we can dwell longer and if you don’t we can move on. It’s your day and I will continue to tailor it to your needs as the day unfolds.
There are no time limits for the tour. We can start early and/or finish late to suit your requirements.
You won’t be sharing with people you don’t know: My tours are only ever for your party of people. This guarantees that you won’t have to share with people you haven’t met and that the tour will be focussed wholly on your requirements.
I will always be your tour guide. I don’t employ other people; it will always be me who guides you.
Collection and drop-off from wherever you are is always included in the tour.
The only items not included in the tour are: meals, refreshments and entry fees.
Why use a driver and not drive yourself?
Many of my clients have greatly appreciated my taking them around rather than hiring a car, for several reasons:-
- They don’t want to risk driving “on the wrong side of the road”; especially roundabouts
- It allows them to enjoy the whole day/view and not have to navigate their way to places.
- I take them to the optimum spot & then spend the ideal amount of time before moving on
- I know the routes from A to B that a Sat Nav wouldn’t, which add an extra dimension to the tour because of the countryside passed through
- I offer a premium 4x4 with a good viewing position/live google map/full wifi facilities that would cost a fair proportion of my fee to hire
Please contact me with your requirements…
