Introduction:

Vous voulez découvrir Londres en compagnie d’un guide francophone accrédité ? De langue maternelle française, J’habite à Londres depuis 1988 et j’ai travaillé dans plusieurs secteurs avant de devenir guide à temps plein. J’aime faire découvrir Londres et le Royaume-Uni et je pourrai vous aider à tirer le plus grand profit de votre séjour en vous proposant des parcours personnalisés, qui allient grands classiques et lieux insolites et utilisent tous les modes de transport (à pied, transports en commun, votre car, etc).
Toutes les options sont possibles : monuments emblématiques (Abbaye de Westminster, Cathédrale St Paul, Tour de Londres, etc), visites d’un quartier, les incontournables des musées et galeries de peintures, des promenades thématiques, et même des excursions au-delà de Londres (Windsor, Oxford, Canterbury, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, etc).

French is my mother tongue. I have been living in London since 1988 and I worked in different corporate environments before becoming a full-time guide. I enjoy taking care of travellers whether in or outside of the UK. I can provide a bespoke approach to all your guiding needs, in English, French or both languages. I will help you make the most of your stay and discover well-known London landmarks as well as off the beaten track gems, using all modes of transport (on foot, by public transport, using your own coach, etc).
I can provide a variety of options: one of London’s most famous landmarks (Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, etc), a walking tour in one of the many London ‘villages’, highlights of a museum or gallery, themed walks, and even outings beyond the Capital (Windsor, Oxford, Canterbury, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, etc).
