I am a Blue Badge Tour Guide specialising in London and England.
You can watch the video above to see me in action and being interviewed by The Vintage News.
Since 2015 I have been a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide.
This is the highest level of guiding qualification in the UK. It is only awarded after an intensive
2 year training and examination process.
I have been awarded the prestigious TripAdvisor Certificate of Merit.
A Londoner born and bred, I have a wide and broad ranging knowledge of this amazing city.
At heart I'm a storyteller,
bringing the past to life and opening up your eyes to the sights around you.
Providing context, stories and entertainment in equal measure
are central to the service I offer my clients.
Before becoming a tour guide, I had a varied career.
It ranged from being an actor and puppeteer, through journalism
to being the owner of a chain of jewellery outlets,
I gave it all up to show you London.
Whether you are a family on holiday, a tour operator or a corporate client,
I can tailor my tours for you.
I have experience guiding groups large and small.
I can guide in a car, taxi, boat, on a luxury coach or on foot.
