Introduction:

I qualified as a Blue Badge Guide in 1994 and have enjoyed my career enormously over the years. The guiding jobs are varied and very interesting. I could be taking a group of German students on a walk in London one day, and guide a coach of German senior citizens in Windsor or Bath the next day. The tours can be half day panoramic tours of London to full day tours outside the capital, and 7 - 10 day coach tours of Cornwall, Scotland, Wales and Kent. I especially enjoy Rosamunde Pilcher tours to Devon and Cornwall, and garden tours to Kent, Sussex, the Cotswolds, Cornwall, Wales and Scotland. I am always happy to research new tours. The majority of my guiding work is done in German, but I am totally bi-lingual. The highlight of my career so far has been to guide the German ex-Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and his family in Oxford.
