About Us

 At Lion Tours we specialise in small group tours, specifically for independent travellers. Our personal, informative service runs with groups of 16 or 24 people and we also offer private tours to groups. Our tours are available throughout the year.

Lion Tours was founded in 2012 but drawing from 12 years of guiding experience.

We have a 16 seat and a 24 seat mini coach and have deliberately kept our buses small to give you the friendliest and best travelling experience possible. In a mini coach you have the advantage of being able see the countryside over the hedges and walls . You will see all the famous sites but our coaches are also are small enough to get off the beaten track and explore the more hidden corners of this beautiful region.

Our team of local driver guides are knowledgeable and passionate about this area and the heritage of our country. They are more than happy to answer your questions and satisfy your curiosity.

I  have a professional interest in road safety and have been driving for tours now for about two years, which I enjoy as it gives me the chance to meet a wide variety of interesting people, and show them some fascinating sights. I am otherwise interested in music, the countryside, gardening and sport of all sorts. I live just on the edge of the Cotswolds but could not build a dry stone wall!


 After a long career in the book publishing industry I have been guiding tours for several years.


 Having worked in a variety of jobs  I was, most recently, a driver guide for Mad Max Tours for 10 years. I enjoy the personal interaction with clients and my interests are running, real ale and eating cake.

Personal recommendations are our most valued source of business; our customers send us friends, colleagues and families and many of them return to tour with us again. They write enthusiastically on our TESTIMONIALS page.
