Get to know the person behind the tour

Daniel C.

Portland, Dorset, United Kingdom

I decided to join ToursbyLocals as i'd been involved in guiding in the USA.

Now back in UK i'd like to share my passion of my local area Dorset! Being certified within Travel & Tourism from Kingston University London and completed many guided tours around the world, I feel I can offer you a fun, knowledgeable and professional service!

I am excited to be part of this movement towards fully customized private tours by local tour guides you can choose yourself. All the while knowing that they have been vetted by experienced ToursbyLocals managers.

Choosing your tour guide is something which is becoming more and more popular these days. A good Tour Guide can make or break an activity and whilst some guides may be good for one person, another guide may be equally good for someone else. Its important to me that its YOUR tour and can be tailored for you!

I am a local "Portlander", I have grown up on the island and spent most of my life here. I have been enjoying these scenic coastal paths, beaches, the world famous view of the Chesil Beach and the Jurassic Coast for much of my life. Outdoor recreation has always been a big reason why I stay on Portland. For me as an avid adventurer with a true passion for the outdoors living such a picturesque and historic area is ideal.

I guide both biking, walking and kayaking tours around Weymouth, Portland & Dorset. There is no end to coastal paths, isolated beach coves, ancient castles, historical ruins, lighthouses and rugged Dorset Jurassic coast. There is many a local tale to tell too! Since the sailing Olympics were held here in 2012 Portland has become a very busy coastal town.

I offer high quality and fun friendly tours around Dorset either on foot, bike, kayak or car. All of which can be tailored around your needs.

Fully insured, licensed and I Look forward to meeting you.

A Recent Review of this guide

Daniel proved to be a gracious, accommodating, and knowledgeable guide to the principal Thomas Hardy sites and the jurrasic coast. He was pleasant to be with, a good and safe driver, and punctual. We were able to arrange pick up and delivery at our lodging in Salisbury, which enabled us to accomplish a great deal in one day. He shared our enthusiasm for Thomas Hardy, and his own rootedness in the Isle of Portland gave us a special experience of that beautiful locale. Overall we would recommend Daniel
