You’ll See the difference with a qualified guide

Hi, my name is Gail and I am an English and French speaking guide. Contact Me to talk about your bespoke tour.

I’ve worked in different branches of tourism for many years. Being an experienced guide makes me easy to work with and flexible. My job is to enlighten and entertain and my aim is for people who come on a tour with me to be glad that they did.

I am a Blue Badge Tourist Guide for London, where I was born. London is vibrant, historic yet modern and always full of surprises. I am also a Guide-conférencier in France, where I lived for many years. My base there is Bordeaux. I love the sunshine, the architecture and of course the wine. Take a tour with me in London or Bordeaux, or maybe visit both. 

Member of The Institute of Tourist Guiding (ITG), the Association of Professional Tourist Guides (APTG-Guide London) and of the Association des Guides de Nouvelle Aquitaine.

May’s tour of the month……Artists Hampstead

Hampstead has a long association with artists and this tour will take us through the picturesque streets of the old village to get a feel for the history of the area. From the top of the town we walk to where young artists like Mark Gertler rented studios and apartments in the early C20th. We see where CW Nevinson and Stanley Spencer painted and learn about Hampstead’s Bauhaus connections in the lead-up to World War II.

Perfect for coming out of lockdown this guided walk is outside and groups will be small, maximum 10 people.

Booking essential. Contact Me for more details and to book. This 2 hour tour is for good walkers as Hampstead is hilly. Afterwards why not have lunch in a pub and visit Hampstead Antiques Emporium in the afternoon or take a walk on Hampstead Heath to Kenwood House (open after 17th May).

10am on Saturday 8, 22 and 29 May, and 11am on Sunday 9, 23 and 30 May £20 per person
