Hello, Bonjour, Shalom! I am a very proud 3rd generation Londoner born and bred. Enthusiastic, lively and passionate about the greatest city in the world! Particular specialism in working with children and teenagers and family groups, although I have many years experience working with all types of visitors whether their visit is for business or for pleasure. I take great delight in bringing places to life and giving them meaning. Sightseeing is not just about history and any visit should be fun! It's the stories that count! Vast experience as a tour manager as well as over 20 years as a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide combines together to make for an understanding of people and their requirements and the need for flexibility. Time is precious when travelling but it's also important not to overdo things! Sometimes less can be more! Any good plan can always be the basis for change - it's all about you and not about me! I do have a particular interest in government & politics and hold the accreditation to guide inside the Palace of Westminster [Houses of Parliament]. I have also developed a Suffragettes in London walking tour around the Westminster area which was created initially for UK A Level Politics students but has been of great interest to a variety of people from various backgrounds and countries. I love walking tours - exploring a smaller area more in depth can be a great way to spend a couple of hours whether it's ghosts, plague and executions on the Dark Side in the City, Immigration in the East End, Theatreland or Victoria and Albert in South Kensington. More general walks of course are also the perfect introduction if you have never been here before. See all the "big" sights with no hurry and there will always be opportunities for loo breaks and refreshments! I will always plan a tour for your specific interests and needs. There are no scripts and no fixed routes and if you have a particular interest then just ask! I lead tours in English, French and Hebrew.

Blue Badge Tourist Guide Brian Harlock Is Sailing Around The World

On Sunday, 30 August we gathered with tears in our eyes and hankies at the ready to wave off our friend, colleague and now officially super-hero, Brian Harlock, on the greatest adventure of his life – the 10th Clipper Round the World Race. Over the next 11 months he will sail as part of the crew (The Warriors as they are known) on board Mission Performance, one of twelve 23-metre yachts, on a route that covers 9 countries, stops at 14 ports, covers 6 continents, and involves 6 ocean crossings and 40,000 nautical miles. During this time they are likely to get through 561,600 tea bags and 10,200 loaves of bread (baked on board by the crew) and they will use over 1,000 wet wipes per week! Those of you who visited him on board before he sailed will understand the importance of the wet wipes!
