Ralph has over 50 years’ experience in the travel industry and speaks fluent French. He works with both the English and French speaking markets and as well as being an expert on London and garden tours, has a particular interest in military and history tours, especially WWII England, Normandy and Winston Churchill. His commemorative tours are renowned for their incredible depth of research and attention to detail and his D-Day tour packages are always quick to sell out. Ralph’s extensive battlefield tour background and experience has forged strong relationships with both clients and suppliers and as a result Tours International is the Official Tour Operator for the Parachute Regiment and annually takes veterans and their families back to the battlefields, beaches and towns in which they fought. In 2018 Ralph was awarded the Médaille de Vermeil in Paris in recognition for the work he has done with veterans since 1982.
