Glen Portch is an amazing tour guide! He was always on time and he made our schedule effortless and enjoyable. He is a fountain of knowledge about all the attractions we visited and we will definitely use him again when we visit London and surrounding areas.

It's difficult to say anything negative about this guide and the knowledge and expertise he possesses! To research further in order to chose a guide is a waste of your time. Glen is simply the best! I am handicapped (neuropathy) and glen pushed me around to different attractions so that I-with my wife-could enjoy them also-and He provided the wheelchair.... More

I read the reviews of Glen on TA and booked him for a Heathrow pick up 7:30 AM and hotel drop off at 1:00 PM. He was terrific! Witty, knowledgeable and fun and we went until... More

He helped us devise a plan that included interesting areas for our six year old granddaughter but kept us all interested. After seeing many sites in the... More

Just returned back from a wonderful family vacation in London. We booked 2 tours (all day city tour & Windsor Castle tour) with Gren Tours based on the reviews that we read on TripAdvisor. Both tours exceeded our expectations! Our tour guide, Glen, was absolutely fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable about the city, major sites, history, monarchy, etc. He was... More

We were referred to Glen by a friend who used Glen in their family's trip to London in the summer. We are glad that we got this referral. Glen has an encyclopedia-type of knowledge on London, especially on history. We spent two days walking around London with Glen and we learned so much about this wonderful city. Glen worked very...
