Introduction:

Working in the Tower of London for over 9 years, I have in depth knowledge on British History, the Royal Family and London. I am very passionate about Art, Literature, History, Food and Shopping.

My unique point is that I am member of many desirable members only clubs, and I can show my clients how the Londoners live and have fun. I know popular places which are very Instagrammable, quirky and opulent boutique shops, fine dining and lush 'it' places one should experience on their visit in London.

I show London as indulgent city as it is and not just a city full of great art and heritage. As this is the life I am so lucky to have experienced, my clients will not feel like guided and be part of London's stylish life.

Being a Blue Badge Guide ,combining with my Masters in Museum Studies and my work experience at London's greatest landmark, I have in depth expertise in many of the London sites that are popular and Kensington Palace, Tower of London, Banqueting House, Wallace Collection, Sir John Soane Museum.

I give art and design tours of all the major art galleries such as the British Museum, V&A and Wallace Collection. I can also guide in out of town sites such as Windsor Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, Salisbury and Bath.

I offer corporate tours as part of their social programs, and tailored tours for families and couples different interests and enthusiasms.

I am young, energetic, full of life and friendly.

Life is changing. Visiting a city is no longer all about history and culture. It is now about where to be seen, where to go, where to have a photo in, what to eat.

I can seamlessly combine London social life with fascinating cultural tour.

One can indulge in what London offers and not only see the fridge magnet sites.
