He's never happier than when he's bringing places to life for guests' enjoyment, and looks forward to giving you a warm British welcome wherever in the world you are from.

Ian has been guiding since Feb 2002

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Birmingham with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Birmingham. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

I feel that Ian struggles to make the most of the tales he tells. They are often interesting stories and with a little more enthusiasm could be rather better.

I absolutely loved visiting Birmingham with Ian. I didn’t know much about the area and really enjoyed learning about it. It looks like a fantastic area to eventually visit!
