About
We provide private guided Cotswold tours that include visits to popular locations at less busy times but mostly focus on the hidden gems and truly unique parts of the Cotswolds. These places are undiscovered by big bus tours and the majority of other small Cotswold tour providers If you're a solo traveller, a couple or a small group of up to eight people, we have a private Cotswold tour just for you. Itineraries are flexible and can be adjusted on the day to suit your preference. All guides are local and live in the Cotswolds. They will show you their favourite places and advise on places you'd like to go. We can also book accommodation and arrange transport to and from the Cotswolds 'Kooky' means 'strange in an interesting way'. Once you're here in the Cotswolds you'll see why.

My wife and I arranged a private tour with Lee over three days. He picked us up in Oxford and we spent two days touring the Cotswolds before he drove us to London to complete our trip.

Lee was the ideal guide. We had limited time and his choices about places to see were perfect. We hit the "must see" towns and villages, but we largely avoided the crowds, and he also took us to a few hidden gems that we agreed to keep secret. :) There is simply no way a self-directed traveller would experience the region in such an intimate way.

Lee is not only extremely knowledgeable about the area's geography and history, but he is also an entertaining storyteller. When you spend all day together it's important to hit it off, and Lee is as personable as they come.

We can't say enough about Lee's professionalism. He is an excellent communicator, always on time, and extremely well organized. When we had car trouble, he quickly called upon colleagues to pick us up and take over without meaningfully interrupting the day.

Thanks, Lee, for an excellent experience!

My husband and I took a 2 night/3 day tour with Lee from Kooky Cotswolds back in Sept 2022. We had a fabulous time! Lee was so accommodating and knowledgeable. Such a pleasant, wonderful experience as he toured us around so many beautiful towns throughout the Cotswolds. We plan to come back to the area soon and Lee will be the first person we contact for another tour of different areas we didn’t get to fit in on this particular visit. Thank you Lee for the unforgettable experience!

If you're interested in exploring The Cotswolds and the neighboring areas with the BEST company...look no further! Kooky Cotswolds Tours does an AMAZING job. From our pick up at Heathrow to our drop off in London 10 days later, we're were in the most capable hands. The owner, Lee, had helped us plan out everything. From ideal locations to stay and sites to see. We were not disappointed! If we wanted to do something that wasn't on the itinerary, nothing was too difficult. Lee had made our wishes come true! He even made sure we had 10 days of PERFECT sunny weather. His professional and concern for our safety and well-being were noted. And kudos for an additional guide, Colin. His love of the Cotswolds beamed! We had the BEST vacation! If the Cotswolds is on your bucket list then I recommend Kooky Cotswolds Tours highly!

Steve was a delightful man who was very knowledgeable about the area. He provided a great introduction of cotswold that was sorely needed by the both of us. He was helpful and nice. He was also very punctual and polite. A delight to have met him. Would definitely go on another tour with this company the next time I'm here again!

Lee was a fabulous tour guide with thorough knowledge of the area. We took the train from Paddington and he met us at the Oxford train station. From there he showed us both new and old Oxford. We then headed to Burford for a little shopping, walking and a delicious lunch at a small pub (Lee’s recommendation.) Then a drive through the countryside, lower and upper Slaughter, with some stops at the Mill store and trout farm. Lee was very accommodating to our fitness level (or lack thereof) and tailored our tour accordingly. Highly recommend - a perfect day!

When my girlfriend’s family came from South America to stay they already knew London well from numerous previous visits. They wanted to sample a more tranquil side of England, they demanded charming little villages, glorious greenery, rolling hills and altogether more relaxing scenery. My partner suggested the Cotswolds and then a work colleague recommended Kooky Tours and it turned out to be the perfect combination! From start to finish the trip was easygoing, smooth and relaxing. Our guide Huw picked us up from our place in North London and was so friendly, accommodating and knowledgable in every aspect. The kids can be a handful on long journeys but rather than merely placating them, Huw managed to engage them fully by making them feel that they were helping to set the agenda for the whole trip. The demands for ancient churches, ornate gardens and stunning countryside were met in full and made all the better by our guide’s endless good humour and an intriguing mixture of factual accounts for everyone and tongue in cheek stories to keep the kids entertained. We returned safely to London completely satisfied that we had enjoyed a genuine break from the city. I thoroughly recommend Kooky Cotswold Tours to anyone else who fancy’s exploring this beautiful part of the world.

We booked a two day tour to visit a selection of villages in the upper Cotswold area
Day one was with Lee and day two with one of the other tour guides. Day one was outstanding. Day two enjoyable.

Both days we took in a range of villages that exactly met the brief of exploring the Cotswolds and visiting the popular villages as well as less well known locations. The tour was perfectly organised and in each stop we were given an overview, accompanied to some of the village highlights (often the town church with really interesting commentary) and then given free time to explore.

Lee in particular is an outstanding guide and we found ourselves always listening intently to what he had to say and it was always meaningful commenatry, presented in an interesting and engaging way with great humour and also he shared some of his own life experiences which was also really interesting ... the only slight disappointment was not to also have Lee as our guide for day two.

You can book Kooky Tours with complete confidence and know they will make your time in the Cotswolds very memorable and enjoyable and that they run a really professional but personal and friendly tour

Great contact from start to finish, very informative and funny. My family can be a bit picky and awkward but Lee kept everyone happy and managed the group dynamic well. There was something for everyone throughout the day. The Cotswolds is a beautiful place but I really don't think I would have enjoyed it as much if it weren't for Lee and the way he conducted the tour. I'd be happy for him to show me around the mall where I live.
