What you can expect

I would love to welcome you to a highlights tour of London's South Bank where I'll show you a dozen famous sites by London's South Bank. Visit those must-see highlights you have always wanted to see and explore the city with me!

Of course, you will go to the Big Ben! This is where you'll hear all about the history of the South Bank - the original landing spot of the Romans who settled 2,000 years ago. Walk tracing River Thames downstream through centuries of culture, architectural innovation, history, and intrigue.

Go to the popular Borough Market - this site has been a food market for over 1,000 years and on a personalized experience you can have the option of tasting samples of local delicacies.

If the tide is low you will have a chance try your hand at "mudlarking" - walking down to beach level to look for ancient artifacts washed up on shore. I'll let you know if it's possible or not and I'll take care of everything once there.

Leave with a spectacular view of the Tower of London at Tower Bridge. I'll also provide you with local recommendations for other things to do and see while in London. Maybe now some hidden gems?

This tour can be fully customized to your wishes.
Just get in touch! And hopefully I will see you soon!

Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada I came to London for work in January 2001. Professionally, I am a trainer and business consultant in the field of IT and ecommerce. On a personal level I am an honorary yet committed "Londoner" with a passion for the whole city and surrounding areas. My degree in British History, also helps me retain and recall on demand, a myriad of interesting local facts! English is my mother tongue, and I can hold a robust conversation in Spanish; limited French."
