Castles & Palaces Hear about sieges, imprisonment, passionate affairs and murder most foul.

Walking

Walking tours are an excellent way to get to know a city. Every town has its stories and a guided tour will fill the streets with life.

Coach or Car

I can meet your coach for panoramic tours of a particular town or area.  Alternatively I can organise transport to get you to places away from the main tourist areas or for you to choose your own destination.  Let me know what you need and I can arrange a private car or minibus for a maximum of 16 people.

I can also arrange transfers from the airport to your hotel or transport from city to city.

English as a Foreign Language

Why not take a tour as a fun way to practice your English? I am an RSA qualified teacher of English as a Foreign Language. All tours can be adapted to your level of English so you can improve your listening and speaking skills whilst learning something of this beautiful part of the country. If you would like a more formal learning experience this can easily be provided.

Illustrated Talks

I am also available to give illustrated presentations to groups and societies. Need help planning a trip? Want background information before a visit? Or are you just curious? For a well-researched, entertaining and informative talk be it  on a particular venue, town, garden or any of the areas or themed walks on my website, do not hesitate to contact me with your requirements.

Fees

The cost of your tour will be based on the fees recommended by the Guild of Registered Guides. I will be happy to agree this with you in advance of your tour. Please note that any costs for entrance fees and refreshments are not included.
