Eccentric New Yorker with big hair, big personality and tons of energy to show you the best, non-mainstream bars and music scene in London. I have lived in London for almost 10 years and I also know the best markets and independent fashion shops to buy unique garments. I'm a proud father to a 1 year old so I have lately discovered cool, baby-friendly places and restaurants where adults can have a good time. I consider London my hometown; it is vibrant, forever morphing and just really cool. Don't stick to zone 1, there is a much bigger London out there!

I am a 31 year old born and bred London girl currently living in the vibrant heart of London's East End, Dalston. I spend half my time cycling around the city, finding hidden spots off the tourist track. I spend evenings trying London's diverse cuisine, dancing and often frequent the city's abundance of art galleries, cinema's and cultural events. I have a Masters degree in Chinese Studies and a wealth of travel experience around Asia; cycling around temples in Burma, working as a journalist in Taipei, studying yoga in South India. I am passionate about showing people from around the world my hometown. As a traveler, I know how unique your trip can became through the eyes of a local. I am also a certified yoga and rock climbing teacher and can take you climbing indoors in a London Castle!

Hi there! My name is Amy, I work as a midwife but I am also an alternative model who loves rock/goth/industrial/metal/ebm music and also a bit of a geek. I am into comics, science fiction (Star Wars!!!!) and yeah, basically into books. Also a creative who designs clothes, candles... not too much spare time though. I am from the north of Spain, but I lived in Barcelona for 6 years, Manchester for 6 months and London, where my heart belongs, for the last 5 years. I would love to show you London through my eyes, so keep in contact :) Cheers, Amy xx

My name is Holly and I'm a 24 year-old actress and musician. Music and theatre are my two main passions and my work takes me to the best dive bars, pub theatres, hidden gems of converted spaces, famous buildings and arenas all over the city. If you want to explore the trendiest neighbourhoods in London and discover the music and artistic scene of the city, from jazz, to rock and opera, I would love to show you around. I know Shoreditch and East London very well and I would be great company on an unscripted walk-around the area.

After spending a summer here in 2012 I relocated permanently in 2013. I attended Goldsmiths University London and am working as a tour guide in the city. I am an art history buff with a kind character and a witty sense of humour. In my spare I attempt to be a musician and I have a passion for movie reviews.
