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 Tripadvisor London Tours and Activities 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.

My family and I just concluded three wonderful days with Glen and could not be happier. We toured Westminster, the Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, and Windsor Castle, but, without exaggeration, the highlight of our London visit was being with Glen. He is engaging, funny, and deeply knowledgeable about history. We learned so much, and always felt like we... More

Glen's enthusiasm is contagious and his vast knowledge of the sites he took us to is mind blowing. It was an extremely enjoyable experience going around London with him and I highly recommend his tours.

My family (grandparents and 3 teens) had an extraordinary two days with Glen Portch. We did both a walking tour in London and a day drive. On the walking tour he was able to cover an amazing amount of attractions while giving us real history in an easy conversational way. He knows the best time to arrive to have short... More

I'm so glad that I contacted Glen before booking my hotel in London so that I was able to slightly alter my schedule to visit on a day he was available. Glen was an excellent guide who tailored our tour to my interests and my already having visited London, stopping at a number of sights he said he hadn't taken... More

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

First time in London for my wife and I and only two days before heading to Paris...so little time and so much to see. 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

Glen Portch of Gren Tours is a delight! He met at our hotel in London on time, had a plan and passes in hand to take us in a wonderful tour of London. 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
