We believe in providing an unparalleled active and cultural experience through the magnificent English Countryside. With exceptionally well-planned routes and three daily options to suit all abilities, our guided tours are designed for those who want to see the hidden gems of the Cotswolds, Devon, Cornwall and the South West.
Fully guided, to us means exactly that – our guides will be with you at all times and with a support vehicle always on hand, guests are able to jump in at any time. All local, with outstanding knowledge of the area, our guides are the heartbeat of our tours and will be on hand to support guests from first thing in the morning to last thing at night. They know every bend in the road, stile, footpath and every cafe and pub (well not maybe all!) along the route.
Our guides will also fit you for any gear you require and ensure that all luggage is transferred between your accommodation on a daily basis.
Our expert tour guides are cyclists and walkers who are with you every step (or pedal) of the way, sharing their local insights, good humour and a refreshing beer at the end of the day. It is the mix of biking and walking with the opportunity to visit some of the most iconic places of interest – Windsor Castle, Oxford, Stratford Upon Avon, The Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace, Bath, Stonehenge and Downton Abbey – which sets Active England Tours apart and immerses our guests in England at its finest.
Our guided tours are set in the heart of the Cotswold countryside, where guests wind their way along the quiet lanes and canals of this stunning region. We walk and bike into all the iconic places on route. Relaxed and travelling at the pace of your choice, our routes are gentle, through villages and valley, gardens and heritage sites throughout the day. Our tours are inclusive, for everyone.
Our guided routes include an iconic place to visit every day – Windsor, Oxford, Stratford, Bath, Stonehenge, Downton Abbey, Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds championing England’s history and heritage. Explore them at your own pace, with the local knowledge and history of your willing guide to point out all those things easily missed otherwise!
From multi award winning hotels to cosy pubs and B&B’s, our hand picked accommodation and wonderful food and hospitality gives guest the perfect balance between active travel and relaxation.
