Your personal guide and driver - Jane Martin

In October 2008 I became the owner of Tours of the Realm. Running my own bespoke travel company for the exclusive end of the leisure market had been a long held ambition and owning Tours of the Realm was the realisation of this dream.

I have always had a fascination for the history and culture of Great Britain.  I love discovering its glorious gardens, historic houses, castles, cathedrals, churches, picturesque villages, ancient towns, beautiful countryside and coastline. Sharing these interests with visitors from home and abroad is something I’m passionate about.

Travel in style and comfort

My car is a top of the range Volkswagen Passat Estate.  It is fully air-conditioned, offers generous interior space, has luxurious leather seats, great visibility and can safely venture through the pretty little country lanes and tiny back roads that regular tour buses are unable to negotiate. 

The car was chosen with my clients’ comfort as a priority and, though I am licensed to carry 4 passengers, to ensure the exclusive and superior service for which Tours of the Realm is known, I prefer to carry a maximum of three passengers when delivering Day Tours.  Additionally, I am a Member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists.
