About Peter Jones

Having taught English Literature and History for many years, I know just how powerful and rewarding a guided trip can be. The context for an event, a memory, a poem, a cemetery - these can combine to create a lasting impression on us all. I am an Associate Member of the Guild of Battlefield Guides, and have led many school group visits in France and the U.K., but the tours I offer through Single Step afford me the privilege of being part of your story. My book "The Stormy Blast",which looks at the lives of five members of the King Edward VI School, Southampton community who died on the Western Front, was published in the autumn of 2013 by Natula Publications. "A Torch in Flame" examines the impact of the war on Hampshire cricketers, and was published in the summer of 2014.

Whether you're someone with an interest in a bespoke tour with a little something more to it, a leader of a school or college group that wants a trip constructed and led by someone with your interests at heart, or a family group wishing to make a pilgrimage to the grave of a loved one, Single Step Tours are waiting for your call.

Praise for Single Step Tours

  • "Peter's depth of knowledge and infectious enthusiasm make a battlefield come alive. It's impossible not to be drawn in by his unique blend of poetry, personal stories and historical insight which he skilfully pitches at a level that is engaging for both pupils and adults alike."

    Jackie Barron

  • "The feedback we received from our classes after the trip was excellent. They found the trip both interesting and moving and they thought they'd learned a lot too!"

  • "Peter connects the landscape of the battles with the stories and literature of those who fought. "

    Shona Burt

  • "Single Step Tours is the perfect name for Peter Jones’ company. It truly was just one simple single step - emailing Peter - and he took care of all the rest ! My knowledge of World War 2 was minimal so I feel that this trip to Normandy, thanks to Peter’s expert and fascinating information, has opened a whole new world up to me. My husband, on the other hand, has always been a history buff, but he too found that having Peter as a tour guide brought to life what never could be found in reading history books. Along with being extremely knowledgeable, Peter is a fun and thoroughly enjoyable person! We both recommend him with great enthusiasm and appreciation for an unforgettable tour. "
