Introduction:

I’m a tour guide for coach and walking tours throughout the Heart of England region. Sample coach tour itineraries offered include the Cotswolds, the Forest of Dean, the Malverns, the Wye Valley and the Industrial Revolution sites in Shropshire. Walking tours offered include Oxford, Stratford-on-Avon, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Shrewsbury and Birmingham. I also offer guided tours of key visitor attractions in the region such as Gloucester Cathedral, Warwick Castle and Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Other coach and walking tour itineraries and site visits are available on request.

Vous voulez découvrir le berceau de la révolution industrielle ? Admirer le paysage des collines et les villages pittoresques des Cotswolds ? Flâner dans les rues de la ville natale de William Shakespeare ? Ou récupérer de la chaleur de l’été anglais – si vous avez échappé à la pluie – en dégustant une cervoise tiède dans le jardin d’un pub ?
Venez avec moi à la découverte des Midlands, le « cœur de l’Angleterre » !

Guide francophone anglais, adepte de l’humour du même nom et fin connaisseur des mœurs bizarres de mes compatriotes, je vous propose des promenades en ville et des excursions panoramiques en bus ou en voiture. Si vous le souhaitez, je peux aussi organiser des visites personnalisées. Contactez-moi, nous définirons ensemble la solution la plus adaptée à vos besoins.
