We had two terrific days with Glen! We are a family of 6 with four teenagers and he managed to keep them interested and laughing! What a knowledgeable guy. He managed to fit all of the sites in that we wanted to see, and then some. He was interesting and very personable. It was a pleasure to spend two days... More

We used Glen's services for a pick-up and tour from Heathrow to our hotel and from our hotel to Canterbury to our ship in Dover. Glen is a fun and knowledgeable guide and did his best to keep us awake and moving after our overnight flight. Driver's of our minibuses very also professional and friendly. His services didn't seem any... More

We had a great day with Glen visiting the Cotswolds/Stonehenge/Bath areas. We were a family of 6 (with 4 kids under 11) and a set of grandparents so Glen had a minibus chartered and served as our commentator/tour guide but didn't have to do the drive himself. He was excellent from start to finish. He addressed all age groups and... More

Just had a Beatles and Rock and Roll tour with Glen. He was full of knowledge and passion. He obviously loves Rock and roll. I was with my 19 year old son who did not know many of the legends Glen talked about and he was exhausts from the jet lag. Even he said that Glen was a great tour... More

Coming straight off an overnight flight from the US, we spent nearly eight hours with Glen on our first day in London. With two kids under 13, in hindsight I kind of wonder what I was thinking. But it worked out perfectly, because Glen provided the perfect background on the city and the history that the kids needed for their... More

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

My whole family enjoyed all his knowledge and his ability to have so many facts and also keep things moving and enjoyable. Would highly recommend him and he is a wonderful part... 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
