Tony Crompton

Travel has always been a major part of Tony's life, having spent the earliest years of his life in Kenya, which perhaps gave him the “wanderlust” in later life. A forty year career which included five years with one of London’s most prestigious wine merchants and owning his own restaurant in Mousehole, Cornwall, served to stimulate his passionate interests in all things food and wine. All this was interspersed with an international career as a designer and even organiser, working for, amongst others, the United Nations and the British government. This varied and exciting past seems to have been the perfect apprenticeship to become a driver guide with Back-Roads Touring, introducing the delights of Britain to our guests from all over the world.
