Get ready to see the best of Greenwich highlights and take in some beautiful hidden historical and cultural gems. Discover the city through the eyes of a local insider and feel free to ask any burning questions along the way.

On this tour you'll imagine what the old Greenwich Palace was like whilst standing where Henry VIII almost certainly stood. As you walk the cobblestone streets, make sure to admire the stunning view from the top of Greenwich Park. What better way to take in the scenery than with a drink at a local traditional pub with a serene river view.

The tour will also include famous film set areas and a visit to the location of recent outdoor concerts.

I have been to something like 42 different countries and done a variety of activities, including trekking, museums, sightseeing, teaching and volunteering on a farm.
Although only fluent in English I can explain quite a bit of Royal history in French as well. My Spanish comes in very handy too.
If you need anyone to take photos whilst on the tour, I'm your man. I've a good eye for composition. Much better than selfies!
Ask about discount tickets to Kensington Palace or the Banqueting Hall."
