"Rowan has a wealth of information to share and he’s a delight to be around. Our full-day tour was interesting from start to finish. Rowan also gave us a bit of history of London as we walked from one museum to the next. He tailored the tour to our likings and worked a delicious lunch into the day as well. He’s personable, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend!" G&SS, North Carolina

"Your total command and delivery of the information was complete and professional.  We couldn't have asked for a better escort. Your enthusiasm, passion and sense of humor made this a special day for us." JB, New York

"Most importantly, we enjoyed your company.  You were well-informed, efficient and very engaging." AC, Phillipines

“You were great! We learned so much.” PW, New Jersey

"The way you designed the day was brilliant ... Your depth of knowledge and ability to make the subject matter come alive over the course of the tour made the day an unmitigated success for us." BJ, Texas

I have always loved art, architecture, history and, of course, living in London, and I want to show the London that I love to those who share my passions. And I believe strongly that there is no point paying for a tour if you do not learn new and interesting things, and there is no point paying for a tour if it is not entertaining.  You are on holiday and my job - and my pleasure - is to help you enjoy yourself!

Guiding is my second career. After a history degree from Oxford, I qualified as a solicitor (attorney) and spent 37 years at a leading City law firm. I loved using my expertise to help clients solve their problems, and I am now using a different expertise to help clients understand and appreciate the wonderful things that London has to offer.

I specialise in small groups, on walking tours or visits to some of London's great sites or museums, and to the leading sites outside London - for further details, see my web site (link above). Most importantly, we'll have fun!
