Customer Reviews

  • Highly recommend this beautiful area to cycle. Hillier than expected but this made it more interesting and we learned “Wolds” means hills. The back roads were quiet and in good condition, most were narrow two lanes with ample room for cars to pass or one lane country roads and drivers were very respectful. Jamie is very organized and replied promptly to any email during the planning of the trip and during our holiday. Our route maps were waiting for us at the B&B in Moreten-in-Marsh and Tom delivered the rental bikes the next day. The bikes were new and in perfect working order. Tom helped with installing our pedals and provided a pannier bag and map holder. Jamie provides a shorter or longer option each day and the route maps and cue sheet were easy to follow. If we stopped in a village to check the map someone would usually come up to us and ask if we needed any assistance. The countryside is beautiful and the villages were gorgeous! The Treetops B&B in Moreton-in-Marsh was excellent. We had a problem with our accommodation in Chipping Campden but Jamie sorted this out very quickly.

  • Had brilliant weekend despite the fact it rained heavily the whole time. Regardless of weather the cycling trip was perfectly organised for my friend and I by Jamie Boot. Received excellent customer service. Hotel we stayed in was amazing. Perfect location and the cycle routes were spot on as there were various types thus catering for all abilities. Would definitely book with Jamie again as he was able to answer all questions and was very helpful. Can’t wait to do again

  • We arranged for a three-day, four-night cycling tour with rented bicycles. The bikes were very nice, the mapped-out options for each day were wonderful (with both a longer and a shorter route), and the lodging was lovely. Jamie was so very helpful with everything. I highly recommend cycling in May when the fields of canola (rapeseed) plants are in full bloom — brilliant yellow fields checkerboard the hillsides. We had a fabulous time and fell in love with Chipping Campden (where we stayed two nights). Our only regret was that we didn’t book a longer trip.

  • I was on a business trip with some extra time at the end. I wanted to arrange a couple of days of self guided cycling with a chance to visit friends in the Cotswolds. Jamie and his crew arranged accommodation, a bike and maps. They proved wonderfully reliable and everything was in place. The bike was immaculate, the routes well chosen, and I had two days of carefree riding. They offer a perfect service, and I recommend them highly.

  • Took the “Magnificent Cotswolds” cycling day trip, 18-mile “leisurely” ride (less hills) and was not disappointed. Great way to see some lovely villages and countryside and get a good workout! Good communication with the company prior to the ride. Meeting point is Moreton-in-Marsh train station so it’s easy to do by bus, train, or car–as a day trip from other UK cities or other Cotswolds locations. Bikes and equipment were new and well-maintained. Our guide Mike provided good info about the locations we visited. Would recommend if you have a reasonable level of fitness and want to see some less-visited Cotswolds sites.

  • One of my favorite days of a 10 day long European vacation! A super easy train trip from Paddington Station and met at the Moreton-in-Marsh train station by Mike. There we had a very thorough description of our itinerary and safety instructions. The bikes looked brand new and were very comfy! Mike was very friendly and informative of local points of interest. I would recommend this trip to anyone. We did the “flat” ride which would be no problem for anyone regardless of their fitness level! Do yourself a favor and include this on your next visit to London! Such beautiful countryside! Thanks Jamie and Mike!
