Tours & Experiences

I have put together a number of tours to my favourite destinations which I hope you will enjoy. Some are orientated towards civil aviation, some towards military and some with a combination of the two. I can even arrange afternoon tea at the RAF Club in Piccadilly, London!

However if you wish to mix and match these tour suggestions, or choose from our extensive list of museums, monuments, flights, and flight simulators please email me your choices and I will be delighted to put together a custom made trip just for you.

Below is guide a price for these tours – for exact prices please use the contact form to email me the size of your group and your preferred method of travel and I will email you back the total cost.  Tours are usually from Central London in a luxury chauffeured vehicle (unless by rail where stated), includes talks by local expert guides, and a tour manager will accompany you throughout the day.  We also are able to photograph and video record your tour and experience in high definition, and present or mail on to you a fully edited DVD.
