Founded in 1966, Grosvenor Guide Services is one of
the longest serving luxury driver-guiding services in the UK. We have the
wealth and breadth of experience for your tours.
We are committed to very high quality and personal service at all times
Our great service is based on a team of qualified Blue Badge Tour Guides who
put themselves at your exclusive disposal for sightseeing tours of as little
as half a day or as long as you desire. Our Guides are selected for their
sense of humour and fun, knowledge, attention to detail and good
companionship. Wherever you chose to be taken you will be entertained,
informed and of course cushioned from the hassles of travel and we offer
this in many world languages.
From initially serving only the private
individual luxury car tours market, in the late 1990s we broadened our remit
to accommodate all types of private parties, using driver guides for up to
seven passengers, luxury mini-coaches and coaches for larger parties, and
guided walking tours.

Grosvenor Guide Services offers driver-guides with their own
licensed cars or minivans who can be booked for tours in Dutch/Flemish,
French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese,
