Tour Operators

I regularly work with leading in-bound tour operators doing panoramic tours of London and out-of-town excursions in both English and FRENCH.

Museums, galleries and attractions

I love museums. Let me take you on a highlights tour of the British Museum, the National Gallery, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral or the Tower of London in-depth.

Children and School Groups

I have worked with highschool groups for almost 20 years and have young children of my own. I know how to bring stories to life and make them relevant to young people.

Individuals/families

I can meet you at the airport or your hotel and adapt our tour to your schedule, interests and energy.

Excursions out of town

I have strong personal connections with the enchanting cities of Oxford and Canterbury, or let me take you to the equally magnificent Windsor for Windsor Castle, Stratford upon Avon, Stonehenge or Bath.

Out and about in London

For a walking tour of 'the Square Mile' or of the 'West End' of London, a visit to the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Greenwich or St Paul's Cathedral, do get in touch.

About

20 years in travel and tourism



  • 1996

    Educational Tour Director

    After growing up between London and Paris, studying political philosophy at university and fine art in Aix-en-Provence, in 1997 I found myself at the Paris office of EF Cultural Tours. This was the start of a 2-decade long collaboration, as an Educational Tour Director, taking large groups on tours of Europe, then in recent years setting up volunteering activities for US and Canadian high school students in London.

  • Leading several lives

    I worked for 7 years as a guide for small exclusive groups on 3 week tours of Greece and Turkey. Ancient history and the near East are a passion of mine. I took groups on in-depth tours of France. With my partner I organised art projects with ex-homeless people, and with an American political fixer took billion dollar US fund managers to Downing Street, Whitehall, the City and Brussels. But all the while I have been leading another secret life as an artist and writer of stories. Watch this space.

    Becoming a Blue Badge Guide

    I was lucky enough to be accepted onto this amazing course. With lectures on everything from history, art and architecture to the geology, fauna and flora of the British Isles. With wonderful companions to study with, this course was a joy. Twelve exams and a coveted Blue Badge later, I now do a job I adore.
