My name is Glen Portch. I offer personalised, private tours of London and Britain for individuals, small or large groups. Tours can be on foot/public transport, by car or by bus for larger groups. Why choose me as your guide? I am the highest rated 'Blue Badge' qualified guide in the London sightseeing listings. The 'Blue Badge' is the highest qualification awarded by the Institution of Tourist Guiding. As such, I am permitted to conduct tours inside many attractions such as Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.

Glen was awesome! He was extremely professional, charming, funny, and smart. He was an endless fountain of knowledge. You couldn't stump him, believe me. my mother was grilling him for hours and he always had answers. Anything you wanted to know about England, any of the sights, the history, the names, years, anything at all - he knew it. And... More

We splurged on a full day tour to Windsor Castle followed by Stonehenge for the Winter Solstice, sunset. Glen arranged everything, even bending very far for us "crazy" Americans (my term not his). I insisted on adding a visit to Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta to a very full itinerary. Glen picked us up at our rental flat, a few... More

Glen Portch was an amazing tour guide. 5 of us did a half day tour on foot / Public transportation and hit absolutely every Beatles / rock & Roll hot spot we could all around London. Glen was very knowledgeable about everything we saw, to the point of letting us know things that were debatable and not really confirmed. After... More

This review is long overdue - our family of four took a two day tour with Glen in the spring of 2014. It was a return visit, as we toured with Glen 2 years earlier in our first visit to London. On this trip, we booked a day to Dover Castle and the Down House, and a day to go... More

I wasted several hours searching the internet for the perfect tour guide for london and a few day trips outside of london. I wish someone would have told me about Glen at Gren Tour Ltd and saved me several late nights scouring for no reason. Our family of four just spent the holidays in London and hired Glen for transfer... More

Not only were we able to book mark the things we wanted to come back to see - we learned so much from our guide! It rained all day, but this was hardly noticeable. Glen Portch kept our 14 and 15 year olds engaged and fascinated. Glen's knowledge is deep and engaging. Things we asked about he reported to us... More

My family of 4, including a 14 & 16 year old, had an amazing full day tour with Glen Portch of Gren Tours. Glen couldn't have made our day any better! He was punctual, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, fun and engaging. Glen collected us at our hotel and we were quickly off and walking for nearly the rest of the day.... More

We hired Glen for two days to show us the best London has to offer and he did not disappoint. Our 13 year old daughter was fascinated by Glen and his running commentary of English history. She was totally engaged the first day on the 8 hour tour and could not wait to see and hear him again on day... More

Glen gave us a wonderful day tour of Stratford, the Cotswalds and Oxford last August. I selected him due to the wonderful reviews he received on Trip Advisor...and we were not disappointed. He is extremely knowledgeable about London and the surrounding areas. He selected a wonderful place for lunch in the Cotswalds. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the day.... More

This review is extremely late but am reminded about my tardiness since we are going to do another quick stop in London again. Our family of 4 did a half day private tour and airport transfer with Gren Tours in April 2013. Since we were only going to be in London for a very brief time, we wanted to maximize... More
