Profile updated 6/01/20
Hello, my name is Gardenia Robinson. I am an experienced and enthusiastic London-based guide specialising in small groups, families and walking tours in Portuguese.
I have in-depth knowledge of London and have co-authored a guidebook to the city in English, for families.
I can guide you in Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, Hampton Court, The Churchill War Rooms, Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle and the British Museum, V&A and National Gallery. I also offer walks, including the City of London, Westminster and shopping tours.
I am also an experienced tour manager and have worked as such throughout the country.
I have excellent knowledge of the corporate market: I am a graduate of the prestigious FEA USP business school and I worked as an investment banker in Brazil before moving to London.
When I first came to Britain I worked as a journalist for travel publications - including Footprint and Cadogan guides, co-authoring a guidebook to London and working on books throughout Latin America, South East Asia and Australia (visiting more than 25 countries), it was a great insight into the life of a tourist. My work has also appeared in publications including Condè Nast Traveller and the Financial Times.
