About Us

Thank you for stopping by. You are visitor number

 Welcome to

The Original Cotswold Travel Company



I am Nick Long. I was born and bred in the Cotswolds and have lived here for most of my life. I fervently believe there is so much more to England than Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. I would love to share the Cotswolds with you.

 For couples, families, small groups and solo travellers

I have developed a range of tours of the Cotswolds specifically and the wider area in general, and your options are limited only by the time you have available to visit this fabulous part of England.

We can collect you from your Cotswold hotel, from an airport, from a railway station, or from another part of the country - London, for example - and give you a wonderful experience. Do take a moment to read some of the reviews on here to understand why I am so sure you can enjoy a great time with us.






  • door-to-door transport by licensed private hire car
  • private tours for solos, couples, families and small groups
  • reliability 24 hours a day
  • all the journey planning done for you
  • a comfortable stress-free ride

The Original Cotswold Travel Company is a Gold Member of Cotswold Tourism, the official VisitBritain organisation serving our area. 

There is more detail in the following pages. However, this is only a small website. We pride ourselves on personal service and building a relationship. If you have any questions about a journey with The Original Cotswold Travel Company, call me to discuss your requirements, but by far the best thing - because I am most likely driving - is to send an e-mail to theoriginalctc@hotmail.co.uk 

So please call 07580 595 202 or better still e-mail theoriginalctc@hotmail.co.uk (copy and paste into your e-mail program, please)

I look forward to meeting you.
