There are other companies and individuals who offer similar services to Norfolk Tours
in other parts of the world and I am posting some of their details here, along with other
people whose writings may be of interest to you.
I have not used any of the holiday providers, but I have built up an online relationship
with them and feel that I can suggest that you contact them if you intend to travel to their area. Please be your own judge and form your own opinions. I cannot be held responsible for any problems with third parties that appear on this site. If you do have any problems, please inform me and I will remove them from this site.

Buy Local Norfolk
Buy Local Norfolk is a great organisation encouraging us all to support our local businesses. From the local butcher or baker, right through to the bloke up the road who catches moles. If we all support our local businesses, the money in our pockets stays in our area and supports local services.
Using national and international businesses only helps to take money out of our regions.

If you would like me to arrange for you to stay in a cottage or B&B and, each day, take you to the start of a walk and pick you up from the end of the walk, I can arrange that for you. There are thousands of walks in the area, some follow ancient pre-historic tracks, some follow Roman Roads and others are on old railway lines. The views, the birdlife, the surprises around each corner and being at one with nature!
