Coach holiday companies
One of my specialist activities is to join your coach and provide a guided commentary as we travel on a panoramic tour of Chester and some of the local villages, stopping briefly in one of them to allow a photograph opportunity. The tour normally takes about 90 minutes and can be extended if required to take in some of the local tourist attractions. Please contact me to discuss your requirements. We normally meet at the Little Roodee Coach Park or outside the Saddle Inn on Grosvenor Street depending on which is best for you.
I also have extensive experience of being a freelance Tour Manager both in the UK and Europe , should you have need of my expertise in this field please contact me.
