Hello Neil, 

I am very much happy to get a reply from you. Yes I am interested in selling tours in UK as well. My first target is selling tour packages worldwide. For example If a USA person wants to get a tour package to UK , my target is that to sell the tour package to him it may not be a issue that I am non US or non UK citizen. Its like affiliate selling and I want to earn commissions . Or the payment may be fixed by more upon discussion. Let me if i could get help on it .

By the way , I am really very glad about your seriousness which you have proved by your comments.

Once again thank you
