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 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

My partner and I had a 13-hour layover through Heathrow, and we wanted to get into London to see a few sights (first time in London for my partner). We contacted Glen several weeks ahead of time, and he was extremely responsive and informative, as well as very flexible with his schedule for the day. We ended up with a... More

While planning a short visit to London, we wanted to see sights outside of the city. We inquired with Gren Tours because of all the positive reviews. Based on our wish list and limited schedule, Glen customized the perfect day trip: Stonehenge, lunch in a very old tavern, Bath and Castle Combe. I had a good feeling about him before... More

Glen was an absolute wealth of knowledge on all things London!! He was a delight and we had the best time. It rained most of the day and we didn't even care! We even stopped for lunch in a small pub. If you have time in London make sure to tour with Glen. You will not be disappointed.

I'd got in touch with Gren Tours based on reviews on tripadvisor when I was planning a 2-day itinerary around London for my parents and their friends. I was impressed with Glen from Gren Tours since his very first response to me. It wasn't a cold email with a list of places, like many other responses I'd received, but was... More

We had the pleasure of having Glenn take us on the Windsor Castle/Stonehenge tour, with lunch a local pub. He was professional from the 1st email and accommodated our family of 10 with no problems. He kept everyone engaged from knock-knock jokes with our 9 year old, to endless history for Grandma. Probably our best day in the UK! Thank... More
