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 is like an old friend who takes you around the area he loves. He is low key with engaging stories of the area that really provides you with an understanding of the Cotswold and what makes them special. He will show you details that you would miss if you just pass through some of the great villages. Highly recommend... More

We had a terrific day with Ken as our guide through the Cotswolds. He has a passion for this gorgeous area where he grew up! He adjusted the day a bit because of morning rain, and his stories kept us entertained. Ken has a great wit! We appreciated the history lessons along the way. We highly recommend this tour! Just...

We spent a full day with Ken touring the Cotswolds area. We did not have an agenda, we left it up to Ken to show us his Cotswolds. Driving through what appeared to be a winding, never ending maze of country roads we discovered little hamlet after hamlet, a step back in time to a simpler village life. The architecture... More

Everyone had told us we must visit the Cotswolds, but we don't like to drive when abroad. What to do? We could have spent days trying to make our way by bus to all the villages with the fascinating names, but that possibility seemed quite daunting. Then we found Ken online. His tour was everything we hoped for and more.... More

Ken was a fabulous private tour guide. He came on time to pick us up. He knew very well the area and he was extremely accommodated to change the discussed tour, to fit my daughters desire to go to The Cotswolds Life Wild Park. I fully recommend it!

As a family of four, we were given an excellent tour around the Cotswolds by Ken. What was best was the combination of getting all the freedom to choose what we wanted to see and very useful guidance from Ken as to what might be of most interest to us.

My family and I had a great day with Ken back in April. We lucked out with beautiful weather for me, my wife and my boy/girl twin teenagers. Ken met us at the train station and we headed out for a drive through rolling hillsides and sheep farms. We visited may lovely towns in the Cotswolds and Ken had something... More

Our one-day tour with Ken around the Cotswolds was a true treasure! A very enjoyable trip. Ken is a sweet, funny, kind, & knowledgeable guide. He brought us to all the locations I had asked about, plus much more. Seeing this part of the country with Ken's insight and commentary was a huge advantage over simply traveling along these roadways... More
