Graham Horn (trading as Tours 2 order) is a qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guide based in the Thames Valley. Having lived in the area for more than 40 years he knows it intimately. He has a vast experience of guiding groups from 2 to 50 people, both from the UK and many other countries.
The Blue Badge is the most prestigious tourist guide qualification in the country. So you can join Graham on a tour knowing that it will be well-organised and safe, as well as knowledgeable and fun.
The range of tours that Graham can offer you, or put together for you, is vast. They include urban walking tours of many of the areas' towns and cities, coach and boat tours discovering the Thames and Chilterns landscapes, towns and villages and further afield, and rural walks (hikes) along the River Thames, into the Chiltern Hills and off the beaten track.
Graham is a huge fan of the detective series Midsomer Murders (Inspector Barnaby), and can take to the places where filming has happened. He also also gives talks to organisations and social groups on a wide range of topics.
