About

Even 250 years ago only one in 10 residents of London were born Londoners. I came to London 13 years ago and made this city my home. I fell in love with it, became a passionate Londoner and that's why I became a guide. Before becoming a professional tour guide I was taking around my friends and family to share my love, experiences and knowledge of London, its peculiarities, its stories and history. Because I came from elsewhere I can see London and British culture afresh. I am experienced working with private clients and I treat them with a sense of hospitality as if they were my own guests. People love discovering with me not only well known landmarks and museums but also secluded places where only insiders can take them.

I am qualified and licensed to guide not only in London and its museums, galleries, palaces and churches, but also in other amazing parts of England such as Windsor, Bath, Stonehenge, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and others. If you are interested in the Wars of the Roses, Tudors, Stuarts Queen Victoria or other royals, come with me!

Originally, I am from Lithuania's capital city Vilnius and before becoming a guide I was an artist. Art is still a passion of my life. History - is another passion. I enjoy meeting new people, I like walking and travelling, and being a tour guide helps me combine all those great things that I love while bringing enjoyable and informative experience to you. I am looking forward to meeting you in London!
