Introduction:

Hello!
I'm Alex, a fun and experienced guide in London. I run tours for couples, families, and groups of all sizes. I am passionate about showing the best of my city to visitors from abroad and more locally as well, showing you parts of London you may never have seen, and bringing history to life.

Whether you are new to the city, a regular visitor, or a local, I will be able to give you a fantastic touring experience. Together we will discover some of the things that make London tick, and you'll soon be thinking of London as an old friend.

Winner of best guide of St Paul's Cathedral, 2015

Some reviews of my tours;

"Our day with Alex was by far the highlight of the trip and everyone's favorite day. Alex was warm and engaging from the moment we first met her, and her energy did not wane one bit as the day went on. She is brilliant and knows so much about a city she clearly loves and cherishes. My two daughters (18 and 20) absolutely loved Alex and were captivated by all that she had to say. Alex not only kept their attention but also made them feel so comfortable in her presence that they freely asked questions and quickly felt they were touring London with a dear friend. My only regret is that we did not book Alex for our entire time in and around London. How fun that would have been!" Glenn, USA

"The tour was fantastic and Alex was perfect! She engaged the children throughout the tour and we really got a good feel of the city!" Danielle, USA

"I joined Alex on a London Walks tour of street art in Shoreditch - not a subject I had any previous knowledge of, but she really brought it to life. Over the two hours of the tour, she took our group around a dazzling variety of art, and filled our minds with fascinating facts about the works and their artists. She also threw in some bonus London history as we walked between the artworks, which I particularly appreciated! I'm not sure what was most impressive - the amount of knowledge she shared, or the fact that it was never overwhelming. Highly recommended - I can't wait for my next Alex tour!" Emma, London

"Just a quick note to thank you ever so much for the tour you gave to our group on Friday. You saved the day. The lead teacher called this morning and said that you were brilliant so I just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation." School group, Belgium

"You won't find a better guide in London, and I wouldn't want anyone else leading my tours. Alex is passionate about her city and is committed to ensuring her travelers experience every enjoyment it has to offer." Robie, USA

"Alex is simply the greatest! We waited nearly three years from first contacting her to finally make it to London, meet her face to face and engage her services. During the planning she was available and constantly helpful. She made London instantly knowable and comfortable. She knew what to see and when. Maximized a day of London that I am sure for most would take a week. She even left us with a list for more! We couldn't possibly have enjoyed London more and it was largely due to her vast knowledge, skill and enthusiastic charm. We will never visit London and fail to hire her for at least a day. Her skill is far too precious to ignore. Thank you Alex for showing London to us with all that love you have for it." Neal & Julianne, USA
