Cotswold Tours provided by Chauffeur Driven Car - the ultimate
way to tour the Cotswolds

One of the best ways to explore the Cotswolds is by Private Car Hire taking advantage of the intimate knowledge of the driver to give you the best touring experience available.

The Cotswold region is full of hidden charm and idiosyncrasy that only an experienced and knowledgeable driver will be able to deliver the best tour experience to give you those unforgettable memories of this truly remarkable region of the UK where time has stood still for 300 years.

You will be collected from your hotel and shown a wealth of beautiful sights in this very special part of England, in comfort and at your own pace. To see ancient villages, medieval churches, Manor houses, wonderful gardens and the enchanting Cotswold countryside. You will then return you to your Hotel at the end of the tour. You will not be part of a group with set times frames and routes. 

You can also be collected from your airport/seaport/train station, have tour itineraries tailor made, your accommodation arranged and be returned at the end of your stay in the Cotswolds.

A Cotswolds Packaged Tour by coach or mini-bus is a wonderful way of having companionship and sharing your tour holiday with others.

The Cotswolds area is large, taking in parts of six English Counties, and stuffed full of glorious gardens, stately homes and castles, and 'chocolate box' villages around every corner. We recommend at least a minimum of a three day tour but you could easily spend two weeks and more savouring this unique region.

Below we recommend the Driver Guided Touring Companies that will offer you Chauffeur Driven Car Hire services to give you a relaxing and rewarding holiday vacation. Most of the companies listed also provide similar services for Cotswold weddings, events and business or just airport collections.

Tour the Cotswolds with a Private Guide

Our private driver guided tours give you the freedom to discover the beauty and charm of the region, whilst enjoying the view from the comfort of our 4 and 7 passenger vehicles.

Leave the planning and driving to us, giving you more time to take in your surroundings and explore places you wouldn’t have otherwise seen.

Throughout the day, your dedicated guide will share facts and other information about places as you pass through them, giving you an insight into historic and daily life in the Cotswolds.

Your tour will not be at all rushed, so you’ll be able to relax and still have time to stop for those important 'photo opportunities', perhaps taking a stroll around some of the beautiful locations that we visit.

You’ll also have an chance to take short walks around some of the towns and villages and stop off at a local 17th or 18th Century inn, restaurant or delicatessen for lunch.

Know somewhere you’d like to visit? Ask about our Bespoke Tours.

Every tour is individually designed to ensure we visit the attractions that you would like to see. We are not restricted to the Cotswold region, so just let us know where you would like to go. We’ll work with you to build an exciting itinerary for you.

At Undiscovered Cotswolds we get off the beaten track so that you get to experience places that only the locals know about.

We can also take you to a traditional Cotswolds farm so you can finish off your day getting to meet some of the friendly local animals. Or how about a glass of prosecco whilst raising a toast next to the bubbling brook at the ruins of an ancient manor house, just as the sun goes down?

About Us

Ian Mowbray-Williams

I’ve visited more than forty countries across America, Africa, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Europe, and still have many more on my list to see. Travelling has always been a passion, but it really kick-started with my 20,000km charity bike ride from London in England to Cape Town in South Africa in 2010. The journey was the best experience of my life.

 Touring VehicleI wanted to experience different methods of travelling, so during those four and a half years I cycled, rowed, walked, hitch hiked, motor cycled, used public transport and rode horses.

Graham Usher

From a very young age my parents instilled into me the importance of travel. They would always say ‘travel broadens the mind.’ Decades later I found that to be a massive understatement.

I started off travelling most of Europe and parts of the US up until the age of around 21. Then I took a leap into the dark and moved to Hong Kong for five years to work. This gave me the chance to see and experience how different cultures live, work and have fun. From here I spent months travelling around the Far East of Asia and Australia, as well as parts of Northern Africa, Europe and the US. During this time I saw many incredible things and met such wonderful people that travel became even more important to me.

My private tours are usually for up to six guests , however please enquire for larger groups.

Lets Tour England

Rob Little has three competing passions; photography, motorcycling and the Cotswolds!  Coming in a close fourth is to be able to share his love and knowledge of the area where he indulges those passions, with visitors.

VW Shuttle Bus

A tour with Rob will give you a taste for the beautiful Cotswold hills - rolling green countryside broken only by lines of “dry stone” stone walls, quaint villages, stone houses, thatched cottages, country homes, formal gardens and narrow winding roads - the "real" England outside of London.

Although Rob’s private tours extend across the United Kingdom and Western Europe, his home is in Tetbury, “Gateway to the Southern Cotswolds”. Tetbury is renowned for being the town close to Prince Charles’ home at Highgrove and is famous for its High Street full of antiques stores.

Travel is supremely comfortable in a large luxury fully air-conditioned Van with leather seats and privacy glass - elevated so you can see over the hedges and walls!

Cotswold Scenery Upper Slaughter

Tours are designed for each Customer based on their individual wishes and dreams – ancient churches, gentle countryside walks, photography, castles, Shakespeare’s country, formal gardens, country pubs – even Harry Potter film sets! You can be assured your tour will be delightfully memorable and filled with historical insight and lots of local colour.

Your group can be collected and dropped off at the airport, your hotel, a seaport or at a railway station.

Welcome to Tour Gems operated by Genny Stallabrass

Come with me on a journey of discovery through the area I grew up in and know so well. Travel in the comfort of my air-conditioned 'people-carrier' and get good views over the hedges and walls, not to mention the other cars on the road! I carry a maximum of six people, so you can be assured of plenty of personal attention.

Choose a fixed tour at a fixed price, or let me work one out for you to include all the places you would like to see (within reason), where I charge an hourly rate - contact me for a quote. Or maybe you haven't got a whole day but would still like to see something. No problem - I can work out a shorter tour.

My fixed tours have been worked out to include a bit of everything, so you will see the loveliest villages and plenty of gorgeous scenery; green fields crisscrossed with dry stone walls, clear trout streams, wooded valleys and so much more. And then there are the superb views from the Cotswold Edge, among the best in England. Because I know the area so well I can take you along all the little back roads that lead to the less well known and often more beautiful small villages. It is in these peaceful places that the true essence of the Cotswolds lies.

My tours are relaxed, with plenty of time to see everything. I will stop at your request whenever possible so that you can take photographs; believe me, I know how frustrating it can be to see that perfect picture flashing by the car window! Also, I will not herd you around like cattle and give you no time to enjoy yourselves, and if the weather is bad, I can vary the tours - there's no point going to a great view point if the hills are covered in mist!

The day is yours to enjoy - after all, it's your holiday. So why not give me a try?
I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Cotswolds Mystery Tour

Six hour guided Cotswolds tour of hidden villages

Hello my name is Polly. My fantastic team and I run a day tour of picturesque hidden Cotswold villages. Whether you’re looking for a great day trip from London, are staying here on holiday or are a local who wants to explore more of the area, our Cotswolds Mystery Tour will exceed your expectations.

Having lived in the Cotswolds all my life I’m passionate about showing people around this area of outstanding natural beauty. I know that tourists love to be treated like a local and are curious about how the English conduct their daily lives which is why I created this incredibly special Cotswolds Mystery Tour.

Tour vehicle Cotswold Mystery Tour
We collect you from Moreton-in-Marsh Railway Station A typical Cotswold ancient village

Operating every day throughout the year

You won’t miss anything in this unspoilt part of England because we’re here to take you on a unique and memorable day through charming little villages that are unknown to most tourists, because they are completely off the beaten track.

Each tour is unique because of the different seasons and is guaranteed to please you. Who knows what you will experience? We drive through private estates, where you’ll see glorious parkland and the most magnificent houses. So on the day of your tour, you may take a private detour that is inaccessible to the public or hold the key to a very special 13th century building. It’s all part of the mystery you’ll never forget.

Hidden village

During your tour of the Cotswolds, we’ll make sure that you don’t go hungry! We’ve selected two places in the North Cotswolds for you to eat and drink at. You’ll enjoy morning tea or coffee and pastries at a village cafe. At 1:30pm we’ll stop at an historical 16th century pub for a lunch costing £7. In the afternoon you’ll have time for some souvenir shopping in a famous town.

Please note: Unlike our sister company Secret Cottage Tour the price of the Cotswolds Mystery Tour does NOT INCLUDE food and drink; neither do we visit Secret Cottage during the day. The tour route is completely different.

We operate with a seven seater Mercedes minibus. This means you’ll see so much of this unspoiled historic area without feeling rushed and it makes the ideal day out for solo travellers, couples or small groups. We know the best places to stop so you can take those all-important memorable photographs – without tourists in the background! Even if just one seat is booked we still run the tour on that day.

The pickup point is the ticket office of Moreton-in-Marsh railway station – we do not pick up or drop off anywhere else. Many arrive by train from Oxford or London-Paddington in time for the tour which starts at 10.00 and ends at 16.20.

The cost is £75 for the day, which does not include food and drink
