    When the throngs of tourists with their sleek

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    When the throngs of tourists with their sleek yachts and expensive cars flocked to the town at the beginning of June, the old Tom would take his bag and move inland to his daughter for the next three months. He couldn't stand their naked bodies and their posh talk. They were like large cockroaches, which disturbed his peace.

    Either 'to his daughter's place/house/residence/(etc.)' or 'with his daughter'.

    You can't move to a person, you either move in with somebody, or move to their residence.

    He's just old Tom. Don't use an article before a person's name.
