GO-tours was founded in 2016 by Glenn Osborne:
I’ve been fortunate to visit many countries, and have enjoyed some incredible adventures, including a face-to-face encounter with wild bears in California, hunting with Bushmen in the African Kalahari desert and living with monks in the Greek mountains. Along the way I’ve met some great people, and received generous hospitality in even the most far-flung destinations.
It was whilst travelling in Europe that I decided to start GO-tours. My aim was to create a tour company and combine two things I love: travel & people. It was important to me to travel in small groups as I want people from all over the world to feel at home in Britain and have an authentic experience. I hope we can provide every guest with a friendly welcome and memorable tour.
Hope to see you on the road soon!
Our focus is to offer visitors to Britain high-quality small-group tours that provide a friendly & personal service. We aim to create tours that are flexible, good-value & mix star attractions with harder-to-reach locations.
By travelling in our comfortable minibuses we can visit places that many tours can’t, and also see more in the process. By travelling in smaller groups we can create a friendly atmosphere, but also operate our tours in a flexible way; adapting for each group that travels with us. Every tour is a new adventure! At GO-tours we also understand the environmental impact that our operations have, which is why we support tree-planting projects in order to offset the carbon footprint of our tours.
Our team are are passionate, hard-working & committed to providing all of our guests with an unforgettable small-group tour experience.
‘Excellent, Excellent, Excellent’
This trip exceeded our expectations in every way. We’ve toured by motor coach before, but this was a whole new (fun) dimension. Glenn – our driver and guide – was knowledgeable, engaging, and totally accommodating. The 16-passenger van is small enough to take you anywhere and that’s exactly what Glenn did. I swear some of the things he took us to see were based on things that people on the bus mentioned. (Like “where is Poldark filmed”?) And he also hit ALL of the highlights that were listed on the itinerary…I have nothing but praise for this little tour company. They work their butts off to give you a first-rate experience. Go, Go-tours!! Go, Glenn!! We loves ya!

‘Blooms, Brew and Brilliant Glenn’
Calling all flower lovers, tea lovers, history lovers, English literature lovers, and anyone who wants a day of serene beauty away from the bustle of London. The Cotswolds is your Xanadu, and GO-Tours your comfortable, air-conditioned chariot. I loved the bus’ large tinted widows and comfortable seats with personal air-conditioning vents above. Glenn was a wonderful guide: friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and epically adorable. I ask more questions than an annoying toddler, and he was not only patient but enthusiastic when answering them. I would rebook with GO-Tours for another adventure with Glenn even if it were just a tour of the local Sainsburys.

‘A very pleasant tour of Wales’
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Wales with Steve as our driver and guide. He was assiduous in his attending to the individual needs of our small group which made for a relaxed and friendly experience. His knowledge of all places that we visited was extensive. The accommodation at the various destinations was first class. We would unreservedly recommend this tour.

‘Tour of a Lifetime’
There are not enough superlatives to describe how superb our tour was with Kevin via Go Tours. I can declaratively say it was the very best trip of my life. The commentary, knowledge displayed by the guide, small client numbers, the attention to detail, the accommodations, and the flexibility and willingness to bend over backwards for clients is to be commended. I highly recommend this company without hesitation.
