Ian Jelf
I'm a professionally-qualified (Heart of England Tourist Board, "Blue Badge") tourist guide specialising in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. Tours from one hour to a full day can be arranged for groups large and small, either by coach or (much better!) on foot. I can suggest a variety of different itineraries, depending on time, interests and season.
