“Will and Zen did a great job guiding our small group through the breathtaking countryside lanes of the Cotswolds! We saw many notable sites along the way and enjoyed many delicious meals….and ales! Highly recommended!!”

Kimberly, D. on  Tripadvisor

“I have never been so pleased with a guided tour. Will and his guides are so able and willing. From the equipment we were provided the guidance everything was excellent. Everyone is top notch from expertise to friendliness! I would leave again tomorrow. The routes and flexibility were wonderful the scenery and places you visit are spectacular I highly recommend if you haven’t seen this part of England go for it, its fabulous and the accommodations were lovely!”

Beverly, S. Tripadvisor Review

“Absolutely loved this cycle tour! A perfect blend of riding and touring historic sites. Zen and Will were so attentive – every need was met. Not only did we have Zen on the bikes with us, but Will accompanied in the van. So if any distance or hill (some 20% grades) were too much, you could catch a ride. Also, as our groups abilities varied, we were given the option to push ahead at a pace that suited us. Accommodations were superb; meals in hotels and in the pubs along the routes were excellent.”

Mary M, TripAdvisor Reviews

“I absolutely loved the bike trip through the Cotswolds! I signed up for the 8 day self guided trip and couldn’t have been more pleased. Will and Ian made sure we were prepared for the daily route with written directions and/or Garmins. The locals were always friendly and willing to give directions to their favorite coffee shops and pubs. The people are amazing, but the traffic is exceptional! The cars are so respectful of bicycles I did not feel unsafe for one minute even though the streets are narrow and we were driving on the opposite side of the road!”
