I pride myself in giving privately guided bespoke tours of this beautiful area. My aim is to give you an individual experience, taking into account the season and the availability of local wildlife. I like to be able to match your interests to local attractions.
Although not an official accredited tour guide, I bring passion and enthusiasm to the industry and in the last 4 years have really enjoyed showing people this special part of the United Kingdom. I have lived in the area for over 30 years. I really love meeting and talking to people and spending time together in an informal and relaxed way. Whilst I offer set tours, I can be totally flexible if necessary with the only issue being any time constraints that my guests may have.
I have 2 air conditioned vehicles an E class Mercedes with a licence capacity of 4 passengers and a Hyundai i800 with a licence capacity of 7 passengers. I can be flexible on the choice of vehicle and we can finalise that choice nearer to the tour date.
Choose from short tours, full day tours or let me put together a bespoke package for you.
I hold a private hire licence.
I operate a reserve system in my diary this will give the client the first option of my services should another client require that same date then the client with the reserve will be given the option of finalising their tours with a deposit to Toursbylocals.
I look forward to showing you this incredible part of the English countryside.
A Recent Review of this guide
Steve was a friendly and knowledgeable guide to the New Forest. This was a special trip in that we were surrounded by the free-range horses and colts throughout our drive. We saw small villages, a wonderful garden, and stopped for scones, cake, and coffee at a very pleasant cafe with a delightful staff. We could have stayed in their garden all day. Steve took care to see that we saw what we wanted - and stopped often so we could photograph the horses. This is the tour to take in Southampton.
