I LOVE London! But I really KNOW London too... I'm proud to be a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, one of a select few who have passed the highest criteria to become a fully qualified London guide. I hold other London guiding qualifications - I am a City of London Guide and Lecturer, A Westminster Guide and a St Paul's Cathedral Guide. I specialise in private, customised (to YOUR requirements) London tours, giving in-depth insight into the best locations such as Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, Hampton Court, St Paul's Cathedral, the Churchill War Rooms, Kew Gardens, Buckingham Palace (summer opening), the British Museum, National Gallery and many more. .... and we can discover hidden alleyways, explore ancient churches, stand where Dickens or Shakespeare or the Romans would have stood...London's many secrets from so many centuries. Guiding is my passion, but I am also a dog-loving, countryside-walking, museum junkie, knit-aholic, who loves to curl up with a good book (I collect old London books) with a lovely cup of tea and a slice of something nice on the side. Come with me to discover London. Whether this is your first visit or you've been here before, I will make sure that you have a wonderful time and take home memories to cherish - and lots of fabulous photos!

I am a lawyer, historian and official City of London and Westminster tour guide. Introducing guests to the splendours and secrets of my hometown is my passion. I try to make my tours a mixture of fun and fact (with some of the facts being funny and some of the fun being factual). I would love to arrange a private tour that will make your visit to London truly memorable. All of my income from tour guiding is donated to charity - currently World Jewish Relief's Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

I'm a qualified London guide now offering History Walks with Gender, Sex and Class. Walks focus on the lives of poorer working people rarely described in historical accounts except as criminals or objects of charity. When there’s an opportunity to talk about women I’ll take it, and social class is always on the table. I've been a writer, researcher and critical historian all my life, and I've been a Londoner since the 1960s, although I've left to live in other towns and countries. Author of Sex at the Margins: Migration, Labour Markets and the Rescue Industry, for many years I've focused on getting the stories out of women and others marginalised because of being poor, foreign, ‘different’ or doing jobs some folks think are Wrong, in the present and in the past. I'm known as The Naked Anthropologist.

Hello, I started working as a guide fifteen years ago, while studying at the University of Oxford. I collaborated with Oxbridge tours travel company where I acted as a tour guide for four years until I moved to London.

I take my guests around art galleries and British country houses. However, I will also be delighted to take you on a walking tour around London or Oxford, and show you some hidden gems most visitors do not know of or have no access to. I will customise your tour to make it a unique and memorable experience. I normally offer tours in English.

Hello, fancy a day out from busy Central London and enjoy cycling? Why not join me and see real parts of outer London on our bikes. I was lucky enough to grow up in a glorious area of South West London and apart from travelling to see the world I've always returned. I love meeting new people and showing them my favourite local places by what I feel is the best mode of travel. . . a bike. This historic area is set on a beautiful part of the River Thames, it has old Royal hunting grounds containing deer, world famous places like the 16th Century home of royalty Hampton Court Palace + UNESCO Kew Botanic Gardens. It is only 30-45 minutes from Central London by train or tube and a peaceful place to visit or base yourself whilst visiting London. I hope to see you in my area of London for a bike trip soon Ginette

Hi, my name is Kemal (English name : Kevin). I'm a, professional photographer, tour guide and whisky enthusiast. I'll be happy to help you for specialist tours in London and the UK. In college I studied law but decided to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a photographer and started my professional career in 1993. I was granted a professional tour guide badge in Istanbul, Turkey in 1996 after a vigorous training by the Ministry of Tourism. I spent my last 30 years working for top magazines and taking people around the World with private and group photography tours. My work has been published globally by well-known magazines including National Geographic, Geo, Cosmopolitan, Reader's Digest, Atlas etc. and my photographs were exhibited internationally. Anthropology Museum of Wichita State University in Kansas holds a permanent exhibition of my work on the last remaining Kurdish Nomads of Eastern Turkey. My prints are sold regularly through art galleries, Gallery The Route in Amsterdam is the main gallery that I'm working with. I was the Deputy Editor of the Turkish Edition of National Geographic Magazine from 2000 to 2011. I did my first photo tour in 2007 and I loved it so much I went on doing it on weekends and holidays while working at the magazine. At one point I left my full-time position at NatGeo in order of doing more photography tours & workshops. Since then I've done hundreds of photography tours all around the World including in the Middle East, Latin America, Asia, Europe and Africa. I also did birdwatching, food and whisky tours as they were all, things that I personally enjoy and wanted to share my experience with my clients. In my photo tours / workshops my focus is teaching the practice and instinctual behaviour of a pro photographer and trying to catch the things as they happen, I never do any set-ups or stage the photos. Looking forward to see you in London and spend some great time together.

The City of London - London's birthplace (Half day)

London
4 hours

The City of London is where the story of the UK's capital truly begins. Founded by the Romans after they settled in 43 AD, a walk through the City means you are passing through almost 2,000 years of history. Trade and commerce continue to define the district but amidst the modern hi-tech 21st century citadels of financial services are testaments to the past - notably The Tower of London & the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral with it's special & moving monument to Americans servicemen of WWII.

Vivian was the BEST!

We enjoyed our tour with Vivian and would highly recommend her. Great knowledge of all the sites of London… very interactive and friendly. We had spoken to several guides prior to hiring her and they just didn’t hit and understand like she did. She provided a great service to us and hope you discover what we did! A real GEM

Tim K.

Hi Tim & Lisa - Very many thanks for your wonderful review and tour rating. I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your tour so much and for my part it was a great pleasure to spend the morning with you both. Wishing you happy onward travels. Vivien x
