Introduction:

I am a Londoner and I love to share my in depth knowledge of and enthusiasm for this great city with visitors from all over the world as well as fellow Londoners. The main purpose of my guiding is to have you enjoy yourself, be at ease and have fun as well as being informed and entertained. You will see sides of London, you have never seen before and didn't know existed. You will learn new stuff about London, which you cannot read in a book or on the internet. I have 20 years of experience as a Tour Leader and Tour Operator for groups travelling to London, Britain and USA-Canada. I enjoy inventing creative itineraries for exploring curious and colourful hidden London gems. If you have a special interest, then please contact me for a suggestion for a guided walking tour or a guided visit to a museum, a gallery or another venue. I am a qualified London Blue Badge Guide and feel equally comfortable guiding groups from 1 to 50 people. The 29th of April 2011 I spent in a TV-studio in front of Buckingham Palace commenting the royal wedding between Prins William and Catherine Middleton for the national Danish television TV2. I was brought in as TV2's expert on the wedding venue. You can book me for a guided tour of Westminster Abbey. In 2016 I also commented for TV2 covering the celebrations of HM the Queen's official 90th birthday in St Paul's Cathedral, at Horse Guards Parade and The Mall.

Jeg bor og arbejder i London, selv om jeg er født og opvokset i Danmark. Jeg elsker at dele min indgående viden om og entusiasme for fantastiske London med besøgende fra Danmark. Det primære formål med min guidning er, at du nyder dit ophold i London, føler dig hjemme og har det sjov samtidig med at du føler dig velinformeret og underholdt. Du vil se sider af London, som du aldrig før har set eller hørt om. Du vil lære nye ting om London, som du ikke kan læse i en bog eller finde på internettet. Jeg har 20 års erfaring som rejseleder og rejseproducent for grupper på rejse til London, Storbritannien og USA-Canada for bl.a. Gislev Rejser. Jeg nyder at opfinde kreative rejseprogrammer for at udforske pudsige og ukendte seværdigheder i London. Hvis du har en særlig interesse, så kontakt mig for at få et forslag til en guidet gåtur eller et guidet besøg på et museum, et kunstgalleri eller andre seværdigheder. Jeg er kvalificeret som London Blue Badge Guide og jeg nyder at vise London frem for grupper fra 1 til 50 personer samt sørge for, at alle praktiske detaljer klapper. Den 29. april 2011 tilbragte jeg i TV2's studie foran Buckingham Palace, hvor jeg kommenterede det royale bryllup mellem Prins William og Catherine Middleton. Jeg var TV2's ekspert på bryllupskirken Westminster Abbey. Du kan booke mig til en rundvisning i Westminster Abbey og Storbritanniens kulturhistorie. I juni 2016 tilbragte jeg 3 dage i Tivoli med at kommentere på TV2's dækning af den engelske dronnings officielle 90 års fødselsdag, fejret i St Paul's Cathedral, på Horse Guards Parade og The Mall.
