Introduction:

I really love showing people around my country, showing it’s best sides while explaining our heritage and customs. I grew up in the naval town of Portsmouth and my interests include World War 2, Winston Churchill, First World War battlefields and the Normandy beaches. I enjoy historic day tours and regularly work with families with children, maybe seeing some of the Harry Potter sites. Mainly I work as a driver-guide taking small private tours, especially families or older people with walking difficulties, in my own car. I also lead walks and work with coach tours. I am no stranger to working with people who use a wheelchair and like to help them make the most of their holiday.
