Hello, my name is Gardenia Robinson. I am an enthusiastic London-based guide specialising in small groups, families and walking tours in Portuguese.
I have in-depth knowledge of London and can guide you in Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, Hampton Court, The Churchill War Rooms, Kensington Palace and Windsor Castle. Blue Badges are the only external guides permited to guide in most of these major sites.
I would love to take you on a London sightseeing and guide you in the National Gallery, the British Museum and the V&A.
I also offer walks, including the City of London and a shopping tour.
I was born in Minas Gerais the heart of Brazil and grew up and studied in São Paulo graduating from the prestigious FEA USP. I worked as an investment banker in Brazil before moving to London.
I have travelled for work throughout Latin America, South East Asia and Australia (visiting more than 25 countries), it was a great insight into the life of a tourist.
Based in London I researched and photographed upper market travel books on London, Brazil, the Amazon and Mexico. My work has appeared in publications including Condè Nast Traveller and the Financial Times. As a guide and a journalist I have worked with and reviewed some of the most prestigious high-end tourism companies in the world.
I am the co-author of the travel guide "London and the Southeast with Kids" by the publisher Footprint.
