I came to guiding in the early 90s after a career in sales admin - the best decision I ever made. I love to show visitors and Londoners the unusual sites away from the tourist trail. 15 years of broadcasting on the subject of Secret London has made me one of the capital's best known Tour Guides. I've experience with every type of group from students and seniors to corporate & specialist.
