The owner of Explore Britain, Philip Scriver, has a wide experience of walking and hiking in Great Britain, Ireland and the USA. I have hiked extensively in the United States, completing the full length of the Appalachian Trail (2,000+ miles) in 1980 as a thru-hiker. I started working as a walking tour guide with English Wanderer in 1981, and Abercrombie and Kent and group leader in the UK for Elderhostel. I moved on to offer inn-to-inn, self-guided independent walking tours via my explorebritain website in 1999. I live in County Durham in Northern England with my wife Jennifer. We got married in 2008 at the home of Bobbie Shafto! The winter months are spent preparing special tours for our returning clients. I continue to offer my pesonal knowledge of the beautiful countryside of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales and to advise the best options for independent travel. I am able to "tailor" any of the walking and hiking tours and holidays to suit your requirements; in terms of days, mileage walked, hotel or B&B category or location. I aim to work as quickly and as efficiently as possibly to make the booking experience as pleasurable as the holidays themselves. I aim to be flexible and accommodating to your needs. If you want something slightly different than that which is listed in the website, I CAN offer it. I aim to make a dream holiday a reality.
