Planning Your Tour

Like all great cities, London has a cornucopia of experiences to offer and the choice can be overwhelming. If this is your first visit, you might like to go for an introductory panoramic tour with me lasting the morning, or a full day’s highlights of London including panoramic tour and a visit to the Tower of London. Or you could just pick and choose from the menu below. If you’re a more regular visitor, perhaps look at the Off the Beaten Track list. I suggest no more than three for a good day’s activities.


Travelling between places can be accomplished by public transportation (tube and double decker bus) or taxi. If you wish to have a private chauffeur driven vehicle at your disposal, I can arrange this too.



International Itineraries


Now we’re talking a different kettle of fish. 


If you, your family, your group of friends or colleagues, your school, your university, or your special interest group, wish to hire me privately to write, produce and run a European tour, then let’s chat…


My particular areas of expertise are in the countries of Western and Mediterranean Europe, as well as Ireland and the UK. Tours normally have a cultural, historical or gastronomic emphasis, as well as general interest for the first time visitor. I am well versed in leading multi-country itineraries as well as in-depth single country or city tours. 


Please note I only work to order, there is no brochure. Any itinerary I write will be exclusive to you and your group.
