Hello, I'm Katie. I run London tours for individuals, families and small groups. I love sharing my city with first-time visitors, as well as Londoners who want to get to know their home better.

Either way, you will be sure to get under the skin of this great city. As well as the major sights, discover real London (the bits most locals don’t even see!) with a born and bred Londoner and award-winning history blogger.

I’ve been working as a tour guide full-time for three years and last year I qualified as a Blue Badge Guide, earning the ‘Best Overall Presentations’ prize.
