WILL WE STOP FOR LUNCH AND TEA?

Lunch will be taken in one of the many and varied Pubs or Cafes, or we can have a picnic. We can have tea at lots of places, my wife's forte. There are small tea shops, cafes, garden centres, and village tea rooms in many Cotswold villages.

WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT TERMS?

A deposit of £100 will be taken  at the time of booking, to secure the booking. The full balance is due 5 days  prior to the tour.

Will there be stops for comfort breaks, Loo stops, WC, Restrooms or Toilet

There are lots of facilities in most villages and towns. We can easily make a detour.
There will always be lots of change for "Pay Facilities".

Can We take a two or three day tour?

Of course. There is so much to see in the Cotswolds. 2 or 3 days touring would be interesting, exciting, and fascinating. There would be no repetition of attractions.

My mother is in a wheelchair and would like to take a Cotswold Tour. Can you help us?

Of course We can!. There is plenty of space in the back of the vehicle for a folding wheelchair, and with the aid of a step there is easy access through the large sliding doors.
The middle row of seats could also be removed to allow easy access for a wheelchair.This would of course reduce the number of passengers to 4 plus your mother.
We could then tailormake a special tour for your mother, so that she could see the attractions that she would like to see.

Why should we choose Best Cotswold Tours?

I was born in the Cotswolds, and have lived and farmed in the area for many years. I have  a vast in depth knowledge of the area which I would like to share with you. I can show you areas of the Cotswolds that few people know about, and have  a vast knowledge of most things that are going on in the fields and countryside around you as we drive from one stunning stop to another.
