About Gren Tours

Glen Portch Tour Guide and Car

Gren Tours is ‘Blue Badge’ qualified tourist guide Glen Portch.  Glen was born just outside London and has lived, worked and played in and around London for most of his life. However, he realised how little he knew about his native city and country when friends, visiting from overseas, asked questions.  Eager not to embarrass himself again, he took the Institute of Tourist Guiding‘s “Blue Badge Guide” course and he gained his qualification in 2004.

Glen offers private tours of London and Great Britain for individuals, small or large groups. He has experience of guiding families, groups of school children, A (and B!) – list celebrities and the presidents of multi-national companies. The emphasis is on fun, tailor-made tours and this website is designed to give you some ideas. Once you have browsed this site and are interested in booking a tour or would like more information, please contact Glen via the contact page.

Female president of the supreme court.... and a female Dr Who. Happy 100th Anniversary... the fight continues ... See MoreSee Less
