Really Interesting Tours
Really Interesting Tours specialises in private driver guide tours of London and the English Countryside. Chas and Teresa Bailey set up this family run business and Chas will be your Blue Badge Tourist Guide.
Your tour will start when we pick you up from your hotel or other accommodation in London. However we can also pick you up from other locations in southern England - please do enquire about this facility.
We will design and customise a tour that reflects your interests. You may be a first time visitor to London and want to see the classic sites, or you may want to explore things that are off the beaten track and/or you may want to experience the beautiful English countryside with its wealth of history, market towns, villages and cities. There is something here for everyone.
We know that planning and enjoying a stress-free holiday is important to you. We can advise on where best to visit and the shape and format of the day allowing you to make the most of your precious time.
I am a fully trained professional Blue Badge Tourist Guide. Blue Badge Tourist Guides are the official tourist guides of the UK and the Blue Badge is the UK's highest guiding qualification, awarded only after extensive training and thorough examination. Blue Badge Tourist Guides are the only private guides who are qualified to tour in Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and Windsor Castle. My aim to give you a tour that is not only informative but also fun, enjoyable and really interesting. My tour guiding ability was recently recognised by an award for my “outstanding contribution to the culture of Sutton Borough”.
Before becoming a Blue Badge Tourist Guide I served as a London police officer for 30 years starting as a “Bobby” on the beat and finishing as a Superintendent at Scotland Yard and then Second-in-Command of my local London Borough. Guests often enjoy talking about the British way of life and policing with me.
My car is a Mercedes Benz E class saloon and it has twin panoramic sunroofs which gives excellent visibility and helps you to enjoy your visit. As a saloon car it carries 3 adult passengers very comfortably. We are fully licensed and insured to drive guests.
I work alongside my wife and fellow Director, Teresa who has 35 years experience in business. Teresa will respond to your enquiry swiftly and deal with any of your queries.
We were born and live in London and enjoy continuously researching and exploring our city and countryside so that we can share them with you.
We look forward to hearing from you.
I have guided a range of guests including individuals, small and large groups, college age young adults, families, guests with disabilities and senior corporate employees. I do driving guiding and walking tours. I also give presentations on wide range of topics to local community and University of the Third Age groups .
