Her  speciality is ensuring that clients have a relaxed and enjoyable time, whilst their private sightseeing tours in Britain are organized and run with a customized itinerary.

Trip Planning
Advice on best use of time available, whether for a half day or a 2 week tour, Marksman will work with you to design all or part of a customized vacation for you.

Your guide
Anne Mark endeavours to personally guide as many tours as possible. If however, due to prior bookings, this is not possible, then we would check that you are happy to be looked after by another excellent and appropriate guide from the Marksman Tours network.  All the guides we work with are hand picked from amongst the pool of fully trained, examined and qualified Blue Badge Guides. Not only are they all members of the Institute of Tourist Guiding, but, even more importantly, they are all delightful companions. They have those indefinable qualities of personality and character that make all the difference for your trip. Knowledgeable in history, culture and art, professional and experienced, but most of all agreeable companions, that is the hallmark of a Marksman Tours guide.

Other Languages
Private guides with their own vehicles who speak the following languages can be booked:
Dutch – Cantonese – Catalan – French – German – Italian – Japanese – Mandarin – Polish – Portuguese – Spanish – Russian – Thai

Guides are all self-employed and run their own vehicles including sedans, station-wagons and mini-vans.  They are all air-conditioned and maintained in tip-top condition.
