Introduction:

Votre guide interprète française vous souhaite la bienvenue en Angleterre et à Londres, capitale extraordinaire qui ne cesse de se réinventer.
Je vous ferai découvrir mon fascinant pays d'adoption, ses petits coins insolites comme ses magnifiques galeries d'art, ses somptueuses demeures, ses belles cathédrales, ses merveilleux jardins et sa verte campagne.

A French national living in England, I taught French language at the University of Bristol until 2011 and have been a professional guide since 1995. Tourism is now my main occupation. I enjoy tailor-made and extended tours; my experiences include London, the South East of England, the South West of England, Devon, Cornwall, the Cotswolds, Wiltshire, Wales, the North of England, Scotland and Ireland.

I graduated from Bristol University with an MA in Garden History in 2009. I have also joined the team of voluntary guides at the Bristol University Botanic Garden.
In 2013 I graduated from the Institute of Registered Tourist Guide with a London Blue Badge award.

Garden tours, extended tours and London are special interests. I very much enjoy tailor-made tours.
