My most exciting things to do in London
People who viewed Holly also viewed these hosts
I am an Italian drummer who moved to London more than 5 ago to study and graduate in music. I love music, playing in a band (Tarantola), talking about music and going to gigs. I am a funny and positive person, very ambitious and future looking, energetic and smiling. I am a caring, patient and confident young man, at ease with families and children as well as with seniors. Oh, and obviously I love London so you'll love it too!

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.

Hi! My name is Tom. I work as a tour guide which I love as it allows me to talk about history and culture and to learn more and more about this remarkable place I am privileged to live in. I like creating hip hop and poetry. This is one of my main passions. Any opportunity to talk about this or to explore the scene would be most welcome. More widely I am passionate about the arts and London is a great place for them. I love doing new things. Just this week for the first time I have done archery, gone on a quad bike, and gone go-karting for the first time in too long. It would be great if you could share an experience, new or familiar, with me. I have travelled widely and even lived in another country (South Korea). These days I am happy exploring London.

Hello! I am a born and bred Londoner and I adore my city. I have family all around the world and I love to travel and learn about different cultures. My travels have taken me to India, Singapore, Vietnam, Cuba... I have also lived in both France and Peru as part of my studies and I am passionate about language learning. There is no place like home though! I look forward to meeting you :)

Holly | LondonReview by: Kristin K
Best experience ever! Beyond words! Highly recommended!
We had a wonderful and very educational day with Holly our local. What we really, really liked was that the experienced was so personalised. We shared our thoughts and interests with Holly and she suggested a lot of things to do and see and ´tailormade' the experience for us. She was really nice and enthusiastic and had so much interest for us. We will definitely use CityUnscripted for our future trips. Thanks so much for this wonderful day. :)
