Vic, thank you so much for mentioning my tour guiding.

Yes, I have been running personalised tours for over a year now. I retired from teaching a year last Easter and had always thought meeting people and guiding them around this green and pleasant land would be a nice thing to do. Tours by Locals, a Canadian firm based in Vancouver, took me on after references had been provided and my qualifications had all been checked thoroughly.
I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting families and small groups of friends and taking them on an adventure in the South of England.

The tours I do are designed for the customer. They usually ask to visit certain places and give me the number of days they want the tour for and I research it and plan it. All the places are places I know well.

If you want to find me or any other
personal guide anywhere in the world here is a link.

All the best,

Thanks, Tony. As you know, my friends and I will sign up with you when we visit England. I can then report about your tours first-hand!
