Travel – not just a journey

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes”

Marcel Proust
Waking to a dawn of new horizons

At Finesse Chauffeurs & Tours we really want you to experience, not the normal but the extraordinary.

This is why we have deliberately stayed clear of the “one tour fits all” scenario. You know the tours where you book online, with potentially several other couples, or groups. You have a long day ahead with so many stops, you don’t get the chance to see or explore what you want. Half an hour here, twenty minutes there. This is not what we offer.

You may think well I have been there before! but the question is did you really see it!

We want you to have a 5 star experience not a 1 star. Fast moving pictures out of a window as you pass by is not what you get with “Finesse”. We provide an up close and personal look around your favourite and wished for locations.

A journey with us is your chance to sit back, relax and enjoy with the people you know and have chosen to travel with. Exploring different locations, routes not well trodden and enjoy some amazing experiences.

Our tours give you a choice of multiple events and activities that you will take away and remember for your lifetime.

Finesse Chauffeurs & Tours presents you with an entirely unique experience

“Everyone deserves a little finesse in their lives”

Oxford and Blenheim Palace ~ Whether you choose to take our walking tour around Oxford with our experienced guide, take part in a private access guided tour of the Bodleian Library, or visit one of it’s many Museums. Oxford has much to explore and learn. As we leave and drive across to Woodstock, home to Blenheim Palace, hear about some very personal untold stories of the Palace and how the Hollis family have lived in Woodstock, been closely linked to Blenheim and how 3 generations have worked within it’s walls.

The Cotswolds ~ Having lived in this beautiful area for many years ourselves, we are well versed in what this amazing location has to offer. We can take you to some familiar locations for travellers to the area such as Bourton on the Water, Broadway, Chipping Campden and Stow on the Wold. Or alternatively we can take you to some lesser know villages, that are still full of Cotswold Charm. Here you will find what is known as the “True England”, travelling along the old Roman “Fosse Way” through scenic quaint villages.

Bath ~ This city is full of culture, history and charm. From the ancient Roman Baths in the City Centre to Pultney Bridge and the Georgian Crescent. As the City Centre is not a driven route, the best way to see this amazing location, and enjoy lunch is with one of our experienced tour guides. Fans of Jane Austen and Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” will also have the opportunity to explore the area. Also hear about Bath’s links to Cornwall via Bath Spa University.

Wells Cathedral ~ This majestic Cathedral with its three towers was built between 1175 and 1490. The Cathedral allows Wells to be classed as a City, the smallest in England. There has been a choir here for over 1,000 years and the current boys, girls and men can be heard regularly on Radio 3. A truly magnificent location to visit and well enjoyed by all of our visiting guests.

Cornwall ~ Rustic, rugged coastlines dominate this county. Deep mining heritage and a proud nation built on it’s fishing industry. Visit hide away coves, villages off the beaten track and soak up the atmosphere of a bygone era. Join us on a tour built for you, no time limits, no shared travel. We arrange unique experiences to make your stay memorable.

Some examples of our amazing experiences;

  • Afternoon tea with the butler
  • Private yacht hire
  • Exclusive library tours
  • Helicopter flights
  • Pasty making
  • Open air theatre tickets
  • Foraging on the Moor with private guide
  • Behind the scenes tours
  • Unique garden tours
  • Private talks at Stately homes
