Introduction:

My name is Simon and I am a dynamic, enthusiastic and passionate tour guide whose aim is to inform, educate and entertain.
With a background in professional theatre, I believe the essence of good guiding is storytelling and as a gifted communicator I aim to bring the story of London to life for you.
I can tailor programmes to suit your individual or group needs.
I bring a wealth of experience as a guide having guided groups in the UK and worldwide for 20 years so you can be assured of being in very safe hands. I look forward to working with you very soon.
