My husband and I visited London for the first time last month. An acquaintance had highly recommended Glen Portch and we were very much impressed with him from his very prompt responses to emails during the inquiry and booking stages through to the wonderful tours he provided. We did two half day tours with Glen in London and a fabulous... More

On May 25, 2014, four of us (2 retired couples from the US) contracted with Glen Portch of Gren Tours, to take an all-day tour of London, Oxford and Highclere Castle. It was the most outstanding tour we have ever taken. Glen began by picking us up at our hotel exactly on time in his Mercedes SUV. From that moment... More

Our party of 4 engaged Glen to pick us up in Southhampton after we disembarked from our Silverseass cruise and take us to London for a full day tour. Glen was such a knowledgeable and professional guide that we were able to leave London after just one day and feel like we had a really flavorful taste of a city... More

I booked Glen for a Sunday excursion to Oxford and Downton Abbey sites at Bampton and Highclere Castle. My five companions and I got even more than we expected. After picking us up at our London hotel right on time, Glen narrated while he drove, telling us about England and the local area's history, politics, architecture, economy, and culture. I... More

Booking the City of London and Stonehenge/Oxford trip from Glen was the best decision and one of the highlights of our UK trip. We wanted to maximize our stay by visiting all the relevant attractions and be enlightened with British history, and we couldn't have been more satisfied with Richard and David who were the guides assigned to us for...

We found Glen on Trip Advisor well in advance of our vacation and contacted him. Over the course of several weeks, Glen laid out our itineraries for the days we would spend with them, purchased all admission tickets we would need for our tours and fully communicated the plans along the way. He made many suggestions to enable us to... More

Excellent tour for three days, included Windsor Castle, Hamptom Court, Salisbury and a truly authentic English Pub! The trip arrangement, pick up, schedule and interest of our tour guide Jo Baddelely was outstanding. and highly recommended.

My wife and I took a half-day car tour with Glen in April 2014. Let me say first that hiring a blue badge tour guide is just a good idea in general. Because the tour guide industry is regulated, you know that your guide will have a minimum amount of knowledge, that they have been vetted and that there is... More

We (there were 6 of us) had a wonderful time in London with Glen as our guide. He was extremely helpful in planning our trip & giving us tips like purchasing the Oyster card. He was so good in responding to all my emails!! He was aware of the events taking place the day we arrived. He met us at... More
