Alipal is me, Ali Bennett, a fully qualified Member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding and Licensed Driver Guide. This means I have completed the world renowned 2 year “Blue Badge” Guide Training. I have been qualified since 2002. If you book your tour with me you will get me. If I am not available on your date(s), I will refer you to another high-quality guide.

My special fondness for Americans, began when my father was a Military Attaché at the British Embassy in Washington DC. We did not live in the usual British enclave, but out-of-town in Bethesda, Maryland.

Since then I have been back many times to see friends in many parts of the country, including a 10,000 mile Greyhound Bus tour of North America in my late teens. One of my sons has married an American girl, became a US citizen in 2019 and lives in Ann Arbor, MI with my two young grandsons. Every year I go to a variety of places in the US promoting my services as a Blue Badge Guide as a guest of happy clients.

I am an empty nester now that my three sons are in their 30s and enjoy arranging extended tours away from home. I am able to provide a special personal vacation planning service.

In 2010, I joined Trip Advisor. Several clients have kindly put reviews onto the Trip Advisor website. Please feel free to visit Trip Advisor Reviews and read these reviews. Alternatively go to www.TripAdvisor.com and search for Alipal Private Tours.
