Introduction:

London never ceases to enthrall me - there is always somewhere new to discover and explore. Whether you're new to London or an old-timer I can make your visit to London a memorable one. A Londoner since 1978, I am originally from Ireland, a graduate of Trinity College Dublin. I qualified as a chartered accountant with Coopers & Lybrand (now PWC) in London doing Tourism and Leisure work including hotel feasibility studies, privatisations in Eastern Europe following the fall of the Berlin Wall. After a career break I'm now delighted to be working again in the tourism sector and I was lucky enough to be awarded the Institute of Tourist Guiding 'Coach Guide of the Year' in 2011. As a parent of 3, I particularly enjoy working with school, student and family groups. I can plan days out of London as well as in London whether in one of the many museums and galleries or in Royal Palaces and Castles. And my aim is to make sure that everyone has a great time!
