More About the Author

David describes himself as a practical, hands-on, ordinary guy who has a love and passion for travel, Britain, old cars, aeroplanes and the outdoors.

After qualifying as a mechanical engineer within the mining industry, he took an Honours Degree in Environmental Sciences (principally geology and geophysics) and worked around the world in the field of oil exploration.

His love of old and classic cars and engineering eventually drew him to starting a classic car restoration business and his love of aeroplanes drew him into working with young people in the Air Cadet Organisation as a flying instructor and instructor for most things relating to the outdoors and adventure training.

As a qualified expedition leader he teaches navigation at all levels from the basics up to pilot navigation. He is an Accredited Assessor for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and an instructor and assessor for the National Navigation Award Scheme. These (amongst other) activities led him to an Honours Degree in Youth Management and Training. He is a member of the Institute of Leadership and Management.

In 2001-2002 he embarked, with his wife, on a 12 month 'around the world' backpacking trip and upon returning to the UK started up a tour company catering for small groups visiting the UK. This business - Brit Experience Limited - developed into British Tour Plans, which assists visitors and tourists to the UK (and fellow Brits) to take Self Drive sightseeing tours.

In his local area he is also a Business Mentor, adding that the reason he assists small business owners is because he loves to see people achieving their goals.

The Tour Plans and Itineraries are now being migrated across to the new Amazon Kindle platform (although they will still be available in printable PDF format from the website) and these Ebooks will allow you to share in David's travel enthusiasm and experience, his love and experience of the UK and his help in YOUR sense of adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars British Tour Plans 11 April 2013
By Julia
Format:Kindle Edition
We have purchased a tour for our up coming visit to the United Kingdom.It has been extremely helpful in the planning process and we are looking forward to using it when we arrive. David is passionate about promoting the UK and the attention to detail is amazing. It is fantastic value for money. What I also like is it isn't a money grabbing exercise, he is genuinely keen for people to enjoy driving in the UK. Having it available on Kindle as we travel around will be fantastic.

We purchased the 12 Day England, Scotland & Wales Heritage Tour from this company and found it not only to be very accurate but also very complete. These guys have worked hard with their research and details and it makes the trip so much easier and interesting. In the USA, we have American Automobile Association Trip Tiks, which are details on where and how to visit a particular area or country. What these guys have done blows away the AAA Trip Tiks! We recommend them highly and wish everyone well and have a great trip using this product. Kevin Gholston

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 19 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
We did the tour last year and David asked if I would do a review because it is going onto Amazons Kindle.

A really good basis for a self drive tour. We added a few diversions and shortened one part which was easy and we really enjoyed it.

We found the sections at the end of each day "other things to do" were a great addition and next time we will allow more time to do some more of these things. Maybe we ought to have studied the plan a bit more before we set the time for the vacation.

We took ages deciding which tour to buy and I think we got the right one. We keep the print out in the souvenirs box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tour 17 May 2012
By Graham
Format:Kindle Edition
I was asked if I would do a review because I did the tour recently and they are now going onto Kindles.

The speed was about right to make the most of our time. Just the right amount of information and detail with links so that you can find out more if you want to.

The website is useful by being able to book things ahead. I booked the hotels and found it good to see a selection in our budget range and then book the ones we wanted directly.

Overall a great tour which we enjoyed. If we had more vacation time I would have liked to have done it a little slower and included the extras on each day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant ! 14 May 2012
By Colleen
Format:Kindle Edition

Just the travel guide we needed to help us visit the UK. There was just the right amount of sightseeing detail to make this guide entertaining and informative without getting bogged down and boring and it would have been so easy to go past things if you didn't know they were there.

A couple of places we ended up staying a little longer and we skipped visiting some others but it must be quite hard to balance where to go, what to see and how much time to spend at each place when your designing a tour like this.

Overall I think the balance is about right. If anything a bit too fast paced for us. You could make it 15 to 20 days for more relaxation but I can also imagine other people commenting that it could have been faster.

The website was really well thought out and helpful. We booked our car and hotels through it and next year we will buy the PDF version of the tour we are going to do (castles)through it so that we can print it out and take it with us.
