Customer reviews from the Cotswold Way

“I’ve just arrived back home again after completing the Cotswolds Way yesterday. It was a great experience”
Mr Rogiers, Belgium
“Everything was well organized and accommodations were all good. The people we met on the trail were friendly and helpful. We had such a positive experience… The views were breath-taking.”
Mr Hayes, USA
“Everything was well organised and the route enjoyable. We would recommend you on the fact that the accommodation is good and organisation very sound - unlike some of your rivals who we have heard are not very good at all either to the guests or hosts.”
Mr Lee, UK
“As on our first tour, the walking was lovely. The accommodations were, once again, clean and hospitable, with great hosts.”
Ms Logan, USA
“Everything went smoothly and the standard of accommodation was generally first class.”
Mr Kenworthy, UK
“Great walk. Contours has a very smooth operation and the only time we needed to phone for help we were very well, and speedily, looked after. If we decide to do another supported walking holiday then we will certainly check Contours out first.”
Mrs Maddison, UK
“We had a wonderful time!”
Mrs Dodridge, Canada
“It exceeded our expectations in every way. Trekking through England for a week at the peak of spring wildflower bloom was pure joy. And staying at such beautiful and comfortable inns each night was a wonderful reward after a long day's journey. Everything from the customer service to the payment transactions to the trek itself was excellent. I must tell you that some of the B&B's also gave Contours kudos for your great customer service and organization.”
Ms Reynolds, USA
“Everything turned out just as I wanted it to. It was a really tough challenge both mentally and physically some days but so rewarding!”
Ms Bohman, Sweden
