Official Guides to the City of London

Vasily Antashov


English, Russian.


Gardens and open spaces, St Paul's Cathedral, Evening walks, General city tour, Financial Institutions, Seasonal.


I was born in Moscow and lived there for many years before moving to London, the city that captivated me so much that I became a tourist guide.

Most of the time I work with Russian-speaking visitors. While I am also qualified to guide in English, I tend to do this only if you are looking for a volunteer guide for some charity event, or if you need a bilingual guide.
