My name is Ken Fowler and I was born and educated in the Cotswolds. I am passionate about my heritage and love to share it with visitors and friends. I am offering personal tours of the Cotswolds in my air conditioned VW Sharan which can take you where a tour bus might struggle. I am completely flexible and will be there to act as your driver, guide and friend.

I can pick you up from a local hotel, or, if you are coming from London, I can pick you up from a local railway station such as Charlbury, which is just over an hour from London, so returning to London in time for dinner is quite feasible. I will of course return you to your hotel or railway station at the end of the day.

Ken was a terrific guide. We found him to be responsive, thorough, kind and knowledgeable. He was also flexible with our plans while guiding us to what he believed to be the most important aspects of the area. We highly recommend Ken!

Visiting the Cotswolds with my senior mother, and our day trip with Ken Fowler was a distinct highlight. Seeing the area by car was the perfect solution for someone with limited mobility, and Ken did a fantastic job tailoring our day to that limitation. We covered so much ground, and enjoyed learning about the history and tradition of this beautiful... More

Ken picked us up at our hotel and began a full day of touring the Cotswolds. He brings so much local knowledge of villages, growth, changes, politics, etc because he has always lived in the Cotswolds. The day was a perfect balance of driving through so many villages and countryside and some time to get out and walk a bit... More

Cotswolds area is beautiful but vast and without a proper guide it is easy to get lost. My mom and I were because we found Ken. Ken is an expert when it comes to the Cotswolds (he grew up and still current resides in the region). Ken showed us around all the scenic areas and explained to us the rich... More

My husband and I found Ken through TripAdvisor and were immediately drawn to the fact that he himself grew up in the Cotswolds. We knew right away that he would be a knowledgeable tour guide; and we were not disappointed! We spent a full day with Ken driving around various Cotswolds villages and enjoyed ourselves immensely. He had an answer... More

I had read about Ken on Trip Advisor and am pleased to say he is an excellent guide. We were an hour late arriving and thought we might have missed him but he was patiently waiting at the train station for us.

Ken stepped in at the last minute due to unforseen circumstances and guided me for three days in the Cotswolds (something impossible to do without a car plus I was travelling solo. He incorporated everything I had wanted to see, and added many great ideas of his own. He is a lovely person. You will enjoy your tour with him.
