Tourist Guides recruited & coordinated by the 'A' Team


For several years now, we at A Team Guides have been handling the tour guide requirements for all the major cruise lines & liners carrying English or French speaking pax which call at any port in the South West of England. We can do this either directly with ships or, more usually, through handling agents and specialist tour companies.

Why the name 'A' Team ?

The MD of a most grateful tour company for whom we worked (and regularly still do) christened us the A-Team because we pulled several rabbits out of several hats for him when a cruise ship made major last minute changes to the tours being operated and, on the day, the ship's tenders broke down just before the return journey to the ship.

Why use us ?  

We have access to a pool of over 30 Blue Badge Tourist Guides plus those with other qualifications in an area covering Somerset, Devon and Cornwall so we can provide guides for liners calling at Dartmouth, Torquay, Plymouth, Fowey, Falmouth & Penzance.

We use the most suitable and experienced guides for each tour, sourcing as close to the port as possible then, for larger calls, radiating outwards.

This keeps the travel costs down to a minimum for you. 

We familiarise guides with itineraries & tour timings before each cruise call, prepare mobile phone contact lists for the operator and, where necessary, car registration details for dock security purposes. 

We also check itineraries for timings & practicality because, all too often, they have been devised by people unfamiliar with the South West's restrictive terrain and layouts of the ports.

Local knowledge makes all the difference!

If required, we can also act as dockside representatives for your tour company. 

This saves you accommodation, travel & subsistence expenses for your staff.

Your next step

All you need to do is let us know the port, the date of the call, the estimated number of guides required and the tours being offered .... then we do the rest!

We look forward to hearing from you.
