Hello and I wish you a warm welcome to my city! Please allow me to introduce myself – My name is Augusta and despite my thoroughly British roots I spent the first half of my life living, studying and working across Europe. Perhaps that’s how I first came to get my love for travel, language, art & history. Perhaps it’s vice-versa.
The second half of my life has been spent living in London with my husband and children.
The tours I specialize in are those that give an overview of, or an introduction to, a site or a subject. I like to think of myself as a history interpreter, making seemingly complex things simple to understand.
I'm particularly keen on tours aimed at children / kids and families. The most popular tours I lead are London Highlights Half Day, London Highlights Full Day, London Top 10, London Top 5.
I am fortunate enough to do a job I absolutely adore so please do join me and we’ll venture out together to see the very best London has to offer.

What previous clients say:

"Augusta, a guide you never shall forget, brings the City's rich history to life. She will whisk you through the Castle, the Crown Jewels, the Changing of the Guard, or whatever your pleasure, educating you along the way. You'll learn, you'll laugh, you'll want to do it all over again. " Eric O, New York Area.

"Whenever I visit London, I make it a point to book Augusta as my tour guide. Augusta’s tours have elevated my appreciation of London’s dynamic and historical significance. Whether visiting London’s main attractions or veering off the city’s popular thoroughfares, Augusta’s tours are full of interesting and fun facts. I have taken many tours with Augusta, and every time it has been the highlight of my trip. Augusta is truly a bespoke tour guide who is knowledgable, professional, engaging, and most importantly, a tour guide who wants you to fall in love with London as much as she does." Mr. Chung, US.

"Augusta was our tour guide for a full-day private tour of Oxford from London. She did an excellent job as our guide, was very knowledgeable of the area and sights, provided great historical and modern context, and was flexible throughout the day to show us many different things that weren't necessarily on the tour. August was witty, kind, friendly, and a joy to spend the day with. We contact Augusta whenever we're in London for tour tips and ideas, and she is always willing to make recommendations and lead us in the right direction; she is our preferred London tour guide for life!" Joanie & Matt - Tallahassee, Florida.

"Our tour Guide was Augusta and I only have one word for her 'funspiring'. She was fun yet so inspiring. We had a fantastic 2.5 hours tour at British Museum with her. She was very knowledgeable and super sweet. We would love to be with her again." Mahira S, Oman.

"We signed up for a full day tour of Oxford and had a stroke of luck when Augusta was assigned as our guide. She was wonderful! We have since used her for a tour of the National Gallery I recommend Augusta without reservation." Bruce and Linda Smith, US.
