About me

I'm an easy going social individual who loves to meet new people from different cultures from around the world. I'm easy to speak to and love to listen about people's lives and stories. I want to share my knowledge of the city and my historical knowledge of sights we visit. I enjoy it when other people are enjoying themselves and will go out of my way to ensure you have an incredible experience in London tailored to your own interests. I am a keen traveller and want to live life to the full. You only get one shot at life so make it count.

My name is Holly and I'm an 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.

I am a born and bred London girl currently living in the vibrant heart of London's East End, Dalston. I spend my time cycling around the city finding hidden spots off the tourist tracks. My evenings are spent exploring London's diverse cuisine and dancing. I'm also a frequent visitor of the city's art galleries, cinemas and cultural events. I have a Masters degree in Chinese Studies and a wealth of travel experience around Asia: I have cycled around temples in Burma, worked as a journalist in Taipei, and studied yoga in South India. Fun fact: I am a certified yoga and rock climbing teacher, so I can take you climbing indoors in a London Castle! I am passionate about showing people around the world my hometown, because being a traveler myself, I know that experiencing the city through the eyes of someone who knows it brings a unique touch to your journey.

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

Hello! I am a fun and friendly London local who loves nothing more than showing friends from far and wide the best of this fabulous city! Originally from Durham (an adorable town in the North-East of England), I moved to London over four years ago for my Bachelor's degree. Over these past few years, I have spent many hours wandering the streets and discovering many hidden treasures all over the city; from Notting Hill in the West to Camden in the North (and Covent Garden in the middle!) I love nothing more than strolling through London's beautiful parks, stuffing my face at local food markets and locating fun and quirky things to do in the city. I am full of tips and tricks to help you make the best of your trip; be it veggie friendly cafés and restaurants or the best West End play to see, I am a fountain of local knowledge! I can't wait to hear from you and to be part of your fabulous London adventure!

Food, Drink, and So Much More!

When we booked our Urban Food Tour we expected to try various foods during our outing. However, Dan was just so excited to show us around his home city, his energy was infectious and we got to see things we weren't expecting. Dan is so knowledgeable about not only the great food spots, but also the history and culture of London. We had great conversation and we wished Dan could have hung out with us on the rest of our trip as well. We plan to go back to London next year and hopefully Dan is available again for another awesome tour.

Outing with Dan on 10.24

This was my first time in London and I could not have asked for a better experience! Dan was a great person to spend the day with, friendly knowledgeable and very willing to accommodate the kinds of things that I wanted to do and see. He provided great suggestions and showed me some really cool local pubs and bars - the perfect way to spend a day in London! Very grateful for this experience!
