I'm a fully qualified Blue Badge London Tourist Guide. Let me show you the famous sites and world class museums this great city has to offer, as well as the details and unknown corners that most visitors don't see. I will give you a personal tour tailored to what YOU want to see. As well as general tours, I specialise in London in World War I & II. I am also qualified to guide in Windsor & Eton.
