About The Exclusive Travel Service

Charges are per day - not per person. Single travellers, contact me directly for a special daily rate.

An itinerary is created especially for you, according to your interests and places you wish to visit. I maintain a large reference of Britain's heritage of places open to the public to use in preparing an itinerary.

Discuss your requirements with me and within a few days I will submit a detailed itinerary, places to visit and selected hotels for your approval. I like to take you to visit historic houses and castles, gardens large and small, cathedrals and churches, and to travel for part of each day on the back roads through pretty villages and countryside.

Accommodation can be booked to suit any pocket so please give me a guide. Prices for hotels are much better value in the country than in London. For a memorable experience I specialise in finding country house hotels with magnificent grounds, surroundings and scenery, combined with the highest standards of food and service.

You may choose to stay in one hotel as a base for several nights, or take different hotels along your planned route which is preferable for a circular tour.

For sightseeing I recommend tours of The Cotswolds or The Black Mountains in Wales.

Rural Kent and Sussex is my original home, and there are many historic castles, houses and gardens to visit in this beautiful countryside, possibly based in Tunbridge Wells.

 

  This is where I receive and reply to your e-mails in my home. It is also where I do all the planning for your customised itineraries. I have up to date routing programs, and CD's on days out, hotels & restaurants, Pubs, an atlas, and 2 encyclopaedias.

In addition, I have leaflets on hundreds of places to visit and 2 comprehensive guide books to them, as well as my National Trust book. There are hotel books and guides to hotel chains like Premier Inns for this country and Ibis hotels in France. For details of the countryside and its towns and villages there are 12 AA and other reference books.

For each tour I produce an itinerary booklet for you, and this can be sent to your mailing address if there is time. It details routes and timings and details and pictures of the places we shall see and stay in. Be sure to bring it with you as it is a working document as well as your souvenir of your customised tour.

I look forward to meeting you and hope you will find me your mentor and friend, rather than just driver and guide.
