Hello! I'm Simon and I travelled to Central America in 2014 and just fell in love with place. So much so that I never left!​ I've been an independent Tour Guide/Director for over 10 years in Ireland (where I'm from) and the UK. During this period I have helped thousands of people get the most from their vacations and return home with great memories, excited for their next adventure. ​I have ran tours for some of the biggest tour operators in the world.Through doing this I realized that there is a real desire for people to travel in smaller groups, stay in boutique hotels and have more intimate local cultural experiences with real people. 
I want to bring people to the big exciting sites but get off the beaten track too where we can really learn about local culture and life.​My philosophy is that that we all work so hard that when we take the time to travel we have to make it count. My  goal is always to create good value tours with genuine experiences and have the right balance between travel, activities and downtime.  If you are looking for a trip with a difference in Central America, the UK or Ireland then please don't hesitate to contact me.

Traveled in Guatemala with Simon in 2020. Living there, he knows a lot about the country (way beyond any info a guidebook can give you) and showed us some of the best spots. Guatemala is gorgeous

James Creegan, USA

Simon is a wealth of knowledge extremely professional but at the same time great fun and entertaining. I would recommend touring with him in any country of the world. The man knows the industry inside out and has some real hidden gems you won’t get with other operators. Hope to travel with him again."

Jamie Schlieckau, Wisconsin

Simon is the most fantastic tour guide ever!!! He is so knowledgeable and you will learn so much on every tour he gives. Simon makes you feel like family and is so incredibly personable and accommodating. I would absolutely take any trip he is guiding again and again. I have been around the world and he is by far the best guide out there. I can’t wait to take another trip with this amazing gent. It is truly a magical experience you definitely want to be a part of."
