Introducing specialist tour guide, Graham Horn
I’m Graham Horn, a specialist and fully qualified Blue Badge tourist guide for the South West, South and South East of England. That area stretches from Cornwall to Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire to Kent, and everywhere else in between.
I run this website, Tours 2 order. Our ultimate goal is to ensure you and your group have the perfect day out. We fully customise all of our tours to suit your exact interests, preferences and needs.
Your guided tour can cover landscapes as varied as the Cotswold Hills, the Chiltern Hills, the chalk downs, the New Forest, the moors of the South West and the Somerset Levels. We can guide you through historic towns and cities as diverse as Exeter, Bath, Salisbury, Oxford, Windsor, and Portsmouth, and not forgetting the stunning scenery of the whole of England’s South Coast and the Great West Way.
Our tours are focused on delivering your perfect experience
Some people like day-long walks through stunning rural landscapes; others like shorter half-day tours of historic towns and cities. Whether you’re looking for the best views, the most amazing stories or to learn about the history and culture of a place, we can create the perfect day for you and your group.
Every tour is different and specially tailored to your group, requirements and interests. Beforehand we will have discussed what tour you’d like, how long it will be and how much it will cost. You can tell me about the type of people in the group and any special arrangements we need to be aware of.
We have tours that are suitable for people of all ages, levels of fitness and interests. It really all starts with a conversation between us so we can ensure your group has the perfect day.
What to expect on a guided tour:
On the day, we will meet you at the start point (this can be a railway station, landmark, hotel or B&B) at the agreed time. Immediately we will aim to establish a rapport with the group, and talk to you, the group organiser, to confirm your expectations.
We will take charge of the group and all of the arrangements for the tour, including liaison with places we will visit and with the driver (if it is a coach tour). You and your group members can just enjoy the tour.
Depending on the size of the group, we will either chat while we are walking along, or for larger groups, we will stop frequently to show you something or tell a story. No-one will be left behind. Sometimes we will use a whisper set, and of course, on a coach, we will use the microphone provided so that everyone can hear.
Safety priority and Covid-19 precautions
Additionally, for your safety Graham holds a St. John Ambulance First Aid Certificate and Public Liability Insurance through the British Guild of Tourist Guides.
Furthermore, in the post-Covid-19 situation, we have a Visit England “We’re Good to Go” certificate which demonstrates that Tours 2 order is a responsible business and has taken measures to keep your safety as a priority.
