Private custom designed premium tours are my speciality. Tell me where you would like to go and I can put a tour together specially for you, or choose from one of my stock tours to the Cotswolds, Stonehenge, Bath, Stratford upon Avon or a Midsomer Murder television location tour tour. I am the owner driver and guide this is my business and I do care. Locations covered on a day to day basis are the beautiful Cotswold`s, Stonehenge and Avebury, Regency and Roman Bath Stratford upon Avon and any area of southern England that you would like to visit I can design a purpose built itinerary just for you. I also offer personalised tours to the locations for Inspector Barnaby Midsomer Murder television locations where you can choose your own favourite episodes and follow the plot of your own special episodes.

Steve Hodgkinson is an excellent driver and a very knowledgeable guide. He provides efficient service and just the right amount of information. Touring the Cotswolds with him these last two days has been a pleasure. I highly recommend him.
