Sarah Bovill

Hello!  Lovely to meet you.

Having been brought up in the depths of the English Countryside, I have lived in London all my adult life and just absolutely love this city.  And nothing makes me happier than sharing it.

My main mission?  Yes, I know it sounds clichéd, but it’s to make sure you have a great time.  I want you to go away having really enjoyed London, or perhaps, if you live here, a part of London you didn’t know about before.

Maybe you’ll choose a tour of, for example, The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey or St Paul's Cathedral, or perhaps you’d rather take a walk along the South Bank (including a visit to Borough Market – a must for foodies!) or through some of London’s beautiful parks taking in some of the Royal Palaces or through the City of London originally built by the Romans.

Or you might like to take a trip out of London: Windsor Castle or Hampton Court, or further afield such as Oxford or Stratford.  Whatever you choose, I want you to get the best out of it.

Please drop me a line and we can discuss lots of options to ensure you get to see everything you want to see but also enjoy some experiences that you might otherwise miss – from those history-filled hidden alleyways to a cosy traditional English pub.  You might even be interested to do a walking tour learning about the real meanings behind some of our best-known nursery rhymes!

I’ll really look forward to hearing from you and to making your time with me truly memorable!

Reviews:

"We loved Sarah! She was very informative, was able to accommodate the tour based on the interests of our son and in general was lovely to be around." SH

"Sarah was an amazing tour guide. She was very well spoken, knowledgeable about the Tower of London, and communicated the history in an entertaining and enjoyable manner. Her tour was the highlight of our trip!!" JD

“It’s hard to describe our family’s time with Sarah in just a few sentences - she took our trip to an unexpected level of fun, warm-heartedness, and education.  Sarah stayed with us for the better part of a week and traveled with our loud, boisterous American family from site to site and city to city.  She was kind, thoughtful, informative, and welcoming - and when we changed things on her at the last minute or discovered a curveball in our plans, she was quick to try to make the experience as easy and entertaining for us as possible.  We visited well over a dozen places with her, and she had well-researched the history and literature of each one, sharing all kinds of historical tales and adventures.  She invited our questions, and though she usually knew the answers to them, she took the time to research and get back to us on the rare occasion that she didn’t.  She even made the car rides fun, talking with our daughters and encouraging them to learn and play some imaginative games.  Sarah wasn’t just our guide - she quickly became our friend, and she made England feel like a second home.  We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a guide in London!” DT

"Sarah was a great tour guide. So informative and terrific (and patient) with our kids. Kept them engaged the entire time. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide for both adults and kids." NL

"Dear Sarah, I wanted to say thank you again for our wonderful trip to Windsor. You were so kind and generous to my mother, my wife, and our 2 boys. Our day at Windsor and Runnymede was by far the best of the trip." SW

"Sarah was great. Really enjoyed our tour with her. High ratings from both of us" (RW)

"Sarah was great.  My kids were at very diffferent levels of interest and she helped keep them both engaged and entertained.  We learned a lot and had a lovely day." (SA)

"Sarah. We are home safe, we enjoyed our tour of your city and your sharing of the history.  It was a great experience for us to see so much in such little time.  You are very good at your profession, we wish you well as you continue with your career.  I have passed on to [tour operator] what a great job you did showing us London and how pleasant you are."(SG)

"Sarah is great. Her knowledge was excellent. Charming presentation. Very personable. Highly recommended" B
