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.

Our trip to London was made perfect by Glen! From his first contact, through my never ending questions which led to more questions, Glen was responsive, helpful, prompt and very patient. Our experience with him was by far the best way to see London's main attractions and well worth the cost. Efficient, knowledgeable and entertaining (beware the jokes- they get... More

Glen Portch is a jem! My family and I booked Glen for multiple tours this past July throughout London. Glen took care of us personally on two days and set us up with two of his colleagues for the two days that he was previously booked for. Glen knows the ins and outs of every attraction in London, Stonehenge, etc...... More

Glen Portch has to be the best guide out there. He picked us up from our cruise and took us to Stonehenge and Highclere Castle before dropping us off at our London hotel. The information this man knows is amazing. He follows up his information with clips on his iPad. He was so informative at Stonehenge that other people hovered... More

I am a travel agent and after having the pleasure of meeting Glen and enjoying his tours, I have booked him for other groups and individuals. He is so easy to work with to customize tours. His personality is perfect for what he does. He goes over and beyond most tour guides who simply give you history and a joke... More

I agree with the other reviewers as to Glen's extensive knowledge, energy, sense of humor etc.. but equally important to me was his timely response to my emails and the invaluable planning of our multi- generational family trip. ( 3 adults and one teen girl 16 years old). He took us on a road trip to the west England counties... More

Our travel agent booked Michael of Gren Tours to pick us up at Heathrow and give us a half day tour before we could check into our hotel. We couldn't have chosen a better guide! Michael was personable and informative. Despite our jet lag we learned a lot! Highly recommend him!

Since we were arriving very early in the morning at Heathrow and could not check-in to the hotel until later in the day, I selected Glen Portch to do a half day tour. I told him that I would need to write a review and his comment was "don't believe what my mother writes", So, this is not by his... More

Glen is exactly what you need in a tour guide. He works with you to find out what your interests are, such as in our case we wanted more in depth tours of Westminster Abby and St. Paul's. Because he is so knowledgeable about the city and the attractions we were able to do quite a bit in a short... More

Our family had about a day and a half in London before we headed out on a cruise out of Southampton. There were 6 of us and a 15 month old baby, so travel around the city could have been complicated. I found Glen here on TripAdvisor and worked out a custom tour with him that also had a visit... More

Had a great solo tour with Glen while my wife went shopping He has an extensive knowledge base of the local sites and is a certified "Blue Badge" guide. Glen was very professional and I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a private tour of London
