Nigel H.

London, England, United Kingdom

Hi, my name is Nigel. I am a former History teacher and now a professional Driver Guide and have been guiding in Britain for 3 years.

London has been my home for the past 25 years and I have a real passion for my country and its buzzing capital city. It's a wonderful place to live!

I believe Tour Guiding is all about sharing knowledge, experiences, stories and having plenty of fun along the way!

I am fully licensed and offer a range of customised, private One Day and Multi Day UK driving tours out of London and also Shore Tours for cruise travellers. I will work closely with you to design a unique tour for you and your group. My vehicle is a comfortable SUV (5 seater Kia Sorento with A/C).

For some fascinating history, amazing sights and good food travel with me to Bath, Windsor, Stratford, Stonehenge, The Cotswolds, Oxford, the lovely villages of Kent, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall to name just a few of Britain's highlights.

To escape the hustle and bustle of London, join me for a short drive on a Day Tour to Kew Gardens, Royal Hampton Court and Windsor Castle, Churchill's home at Chartwell or a host of other places less than an hour from the centre of the city.

If London is your focus, walk or drive with me to see the historic sights linked to the British Royal Family in Westminster. Explore the ancient City of London with its Roman origins and its spectacular architecture. Let's explore the Tower of London, the Houses Of Parliament, Buckingham and Kensington Palaces, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, The Southbank and the East End.

I also run themed walking tours to Historic London Pubs, Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes film sites and a Sir Winston Churchill tour as well as Day and Multi Day tours to Paris!

I have been fortunate to travel to over 70 countries and have met some remarkable people and some amazing tour guides. I love meeting people and, if you are interested, I will create opportunities for you to meet and speak with local people and gain an insight into their everyday way of life.

I am really looking forward to meeting and getting to know you and sharing the many rich experiences that this country can offer.
