"We all loved it and are grateful for your knowledge, expertise, ability to engage the children, and for your humor!” KK, Houston, Texas

“Your knowledge is exceptional, pulling together facts from different periods to build up a marvellously engaging mosaic of the area. You are both very versatile and patient with allowing us to ask questions and even offering our own memories, and you built them into the narrative with a great sense of humour. You also managed the pace very well and we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole afternoon.” AH, London (City walk)

"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

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. You will learn new and interesting things, and you will be entertained. You are on holiday and my job 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 over 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 some of 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. You will find further details on my web site (link on the right) - or ask me to research and design a walk to suit your interests.

Whatever we do, we'll have fun!
