Overview

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!

My family of 4 is coming to London from Sept 13-19 and would like to visit the Cotswolds including Aynho which has family significance for us. Do you have availability and what would the price be? Do we catch a train to a place to meet you? MaryHanna

We are a recently retired couple, interested in travel, history and landscape. We are staying in your area from Friday, Sept. 25 to Sunday, Sept. 27. We would like to have a tour with you on one or two of any of these days, if any is available. We can either go privately or join an existing party if that is agreeable. Regards, Dan Tadmor (and Rachel).
