I am a qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guide for Cumbria and for Northumbria.
The Blue Badge is awarded by the Institute of Tourist Guiding after an in-depth training course, followed by both written and practical examinations.
I am a graduate in Geography from Oxford University with 20 years' management experience in the passenger transport industry. Widely travelled throughout Britain - with particular knowledge of the North of England.
I have over 25 years' professional experience as a Tourist Guide - working with visitors and corporate clients from throughout Britain and around the world. These have included Irish, Dutch, Belgian, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Maltese, American, Canadian, Chilean, Australian, New Zealand, Japanese, Filipino, Thai, Malaysian, Arabian, Indian, Pakistani and Chinese in the past.
My particular special interests include : Geography & Geology, History & Prehistory, Industrial Heritage and Transport.
I will undertake bespoke tours and walks, for large or small groups, or for individuals, in towns and countryside throughout the UK. I can lead or suggest easy lowland walks in the Fells and Dales. Also cruise ship on-shore excursions.
Tours and visits can be tailored to suit your requirements and arranged on your behalf. These could be on foot - or else in your own minibus, coach or car.
Simply contact me to discuss your requirements and my availability.
My fees are subject to mutual discussion - but are in line with those suggested by the British Guild of Tourist Guides.
