    Everything worked out perfectly.  All the accommodations were very comfortable and the taxis were always on time.  We particularly enjoyed following the route directions, like a treasure hunt.  There were just a few instances when there was for example, a gate instead of a stile, but we could easily figure things out.  We ran into only a handful of people during our walks, which made it that much more our own adventure!  Andrew was very accommodating in getting us to our Highgrove Gardens tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed.  We were pleasantly surprised that the villages we visited were not at all crowded or touristy, with the possible exceptions of Bibury and Bourton-on-the Water.

    Thank you again for organizing a wonderful trip.

    The lady Cotswold walkers want to thank you for providing us with an amazing week of adventure. From Chipping to Hidcote to Lords of the Manor in Slaughters and ending in the Roman town of Cirencester it was week that will be remembered always. This was our first walk of many to follow. We walked, talked, laughed, ate a few too many fish and chips and perhaps drank a little too much wine in the evenings but we managed to only get lost once :) Judy hailed a pickup truck, we climbed aboard and laughed all the way back to our hotel.

    "We followed your recommendations for daily walks, side trips and restaurants and were rewarded by having a truly memorable and great trip. Your instructions are very detailed and more importantly accurate.  Very few issues and they were so minor, we can’t remember what they were. The hotel choices were also very good. The choice of transfers was also great with all the drivers treating us like guests rather than passengers.

    "Andrew, Please let us know if we can ever help with a positive reference. It may seem as if we didn't live up to our walking expectations, but we had a wonderful time and the rest we needed with the colds we had picked up. The accommodations were perfect, Paul and Andrew/Samantha were gracious and helpful...I think we ended up changing every single ride you had planned except the last one to the train station. We look forward to another trip to the Cotswolds. Just a note: you were a big part of our experience. From the very first you created an air of confidence and competence and you were kind and gracious with every question we asked. Judy has worked for an adventure travel company for many years and she knows how important the local agent is to success. Thanks for all you did. Ted Copland"

    Our visit to the Cotswolds went quite successfully. I was somewhat hampered by a recurrence of knee pain which led to some curtailment.

    We had spectacular weather and did not need the wet weather gear or the hiking boots that we had brought.

    We delighted in everything – the fields, the farms we went through, the people to whom we spoke, the many churches through which we looked and walked around.

    All 3 B&Bs were beautiful and the owners – Sarah and Peter, Jenny and Garry and Jane and David – were so pleasant, helpful and welcoming. The transfer of bags went smoothly (sorry that we just missed seeing you at 1 Silk Mill Lane), the taxis you arranged were easily contactable and the drivers were friendly and obliging. A special word for Andrew Hope – a really nice gentleman.

    As to highlights we would point to Chipping Camden (with its picturesque High Street, possibly the best preserved of all and with a lovely church), Hidcote and Kiftsgate Gardens, Stanton (a gem – thanks for recommending The Mount Inn, wonderful for a lunch break), Hailes Abbey (had the best audio program we encountered on our 5 weeks in the UK), the Slaughters, Sudeley Castle. Bourton-on-the Water was charming but a bit busy with tourist buses etc.

    Andrew great job on arranging the trip and then accommodating the several new transfers and hotel bookings needed when my companion became ill and we lost a day. As you know she recovered in time for you to arrange the side trip to Chedworth Villa and Stonehenge. You did a great job. I have attached a restaurant garden picture of the Mediterranean Café in Chipping Camden where we had the most enjoyable and memorable meal of the trip. There 8 different colored flowers in that small garden.

    Many thanks for a great walking trip through the Cotswolds staying at the best of the luxury hotels and spas
