Alex G.

Newton Abbot, Devon, United Kingdom

Hello, and welcome to Devon. My name is Alex, and as an award winning tour guide I can organise wonderful days out for you in this most beautiful and intriguing area of England.

I have lived in Devon all my life, and am very passionate about sharing what it has to offer. I have spent a vast amount of time getting to know the area in order to be able to show my guests the very best that it has to offer. From the landscapes and legends of Dartmoor to the Cathedral and Roman history of Exeter, from famous characters like Dame Agatha Christie and Sir Francis Drake to beautiful beaches and cream teas, from glorious gardens and evocative castles to steam trains and river boats, Devon can truly offer something for anyone, whatever their interests.

I am happy to take you and your group on pre-planned tours as listed, or I can arrange tailor made tours according to your preferences. I have built excellent links with many attractions and businesses in the area with whom I can work to provide you with exclusive and fascinating experiences.

As well as being your good natured and award winning guide, I will also be your driver, taking you out in my comfortable 7 seater Ford Galaxy. I can pick you up from wherever you wish locally, or arrange transport if you need collecting from further afield.

I have spent most of my working life in customer service industries, including the tourism industry, so you can expect me to take great care of you, ensuring that you have the best possible time. I am now very keen to focus more on enjoying the work that I do, and I would like to share this enjoyment with you. Devon has so much to offer, being one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the United Kingdom, and yet it is never difficult to get off the beaten track, especially if you are in my hands - local knowledge counts for a lot if you really want to get to see a place!

I have many hobbies and interests which I feel can only enhance your time with me, including photography, nature, walking, history, travel, cooking and genealogy (I have an extensive and prestigious Scottish family history which I am happy to share with you). If you want me to, I will act as your photographer for the day, and produce good quality images to remember your time in Devon by.

So, whatever your interests, please come to me to discuss what I can arrange for you. I can also point you in the direction of the very best accommodation that this area has to offer, as well as taking you to the best restaurants and inns for your meals. I hope to meet you soon.

A Recent Review of this guide

Alex was a wonderful guide for a day exploring Dartmoor! He knows a lot about the park itself, as well as the general area. He is super personable and accommodating, and both my son and me had a great time. I highly recommend his services!
