About
I'm Amber. I'm a professional Blue Badge Tour Guide and I've been working on and off in tourism since 2014. As a born and bred Londoner, I love sharing this city with fellow Londoners and visitors alike - both its hidden corners and much-loved sites. The variety, culture, and history of London weaves an extraordinary story which I can’t wait regale you with. There are just so many wonderful sites in London, it's always helpful to have someone to show you round (I can even do it virtually!).

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a great time touring the old City of London with Amber and checking out historical spots and hidden quirks from the Tower to St. Paul's. Amber put up with my 6 year old's incessant chatter about video games and had a lot of age-appropriate material to bring history to life for him.

My wife and I along with our two daughters (13 and 16) had the great fortune to have Amber guide us through the Tower of London and St. Paul's Cathedral while we were in London for a family vacation. For four hours plus Amber gave us some fantastic insights into history of both places and kept our girls engaged and entertained. She knew that we were going to see the musical Six later that night and made sure to fill us in on all the stories about Henry VIII and his six wives. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and just a wonderful person to spend time with. We highly recommend Amber as a guide and will certainly hire her again if we return to London.

We were looking for a guide for our first full day in London to give us a framework for our seven day stay.
We wanted to learn how to navigate the Underground, walk the city and visit sites and museums with a focus on art and history.
Unfortunately for us, that first day was Christmas Eve making most sites unavailable.
That’s where Amber stepped in and worked her magic.
She arranged a marvelous wandering tour, providing delightful historical facts and tidbits.
Her knowledge and preparation was evident from the start.
Sixteen thousand steps later the three of us toasted to London.
Now we felt ready to navigate the city on our own - and we did.
Thank you Amber.

Amber is BEYOND AMAZING as a tour guide in London! Amber is an expert in all things London! She breathed life into all the historical sites we visited with interesting facts and unique stories. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, fun, and flexible! We even took a few unplanned detours of fun places like Harry Potter sights and the museum.
She was with us for three days and she honestly felt like one of the family. We spent our last evening all together having dinner with Amber in one of the best pubs in London - The Old Shades! She's the best!

Fabulous! My two boys (11&13) will tell you their favorite part of the London trip was with "the tour lady"- Amber is patient, kind, knowledgeable and fun! Amber is full of neat facts and took us to "hidden gems" around town. Super Family Friendly, will certainly contact Amber again next visit and refer her to my own family and friends!

I like to consider myself a curious tourist. I have passed the habit of asking as many questions as I can off to my children. Amber took us on and made tours of Westminster Abbey and Tower of London an absolute joy for the entire family! Not only did she expertly guide us through each site, but pointed out interests suited for each of my children. After our first tour with her in Westminster Abbey our family did not think we could do any better and she completely enhanced our experience the next day in the Tower of London. We could not have understood and appreciated these beautiful landmarks of London as much, or on our own without her. Amber completely embraced our family and it was honestly two of the best experiences we had.

We spent almost two full days with Amber and the time flew. We had a rough idea of what we wanted to see in London, and Amber coordinated our itinerary and steered us toward an amazing afternoon tea experience on our first day, and lunch atop a rooftop bar looking out onto the dome of St. Paul’s on our second day. We admired her knowledge of all the places we visited, and loved hearing the many, many stories held within St. Paul’s, the Tower and Westminster Abbey. We even got to see some unexpected nooks and crannies between our stops. We were on the fence about seeing the Tate Britain—aren’t art museums supposed to be boring?—but Amber researched and curated our visit ahead of time and showed us just what she knew would pique our interest. We could see other museumgoers leaning in to try to hear what they were missing out on! Everything about our experience was customized, and the care Amber put into planning each activity for us ahead of our arrival was demonstrable. There were some unexpected tube and road closures, and a large demonstration right in central London on the day we visited, and Amber adapted brilliantly. I am sure we would’ve missed out on part of our day if we’d tried to navigate that chaos on our own. But above everything, Amber was SO MUCH FUN to spend time with. It was like visiting London with a friend who just happens to be a history buff and knows the city up and down. We miss her already!

Amber came highly recommended to us by a friend who had taken a tour with her in the summer…and our day with Amber did not disappoint!

Our trip was rather last minute and Amber was kind enough to accommodate spending a day taking us on a walking tour of London. She customized the tour to the sights we wanted to hit - and made sure to add other must sees to the list as well. We started the day at Westminster Abby and ended it with a tour of the Tower of London.

Amber was extremely knowledgeable and was able to engage all three of our kids - ages 16, 13 and 9 - on the tour. This is not easy given the diverse age ranges but Amber tackled it with ease - and made the day so much fun for all of us! She made sure that the kids got a sense of London’s rich history and got to experience its vibrant culture. We will definitely schedule with Amber again on our next trip in London!

Amber took us on a tour of the City of London. Our tour began at St. Paul's and led us through the City, culminating with with panoramic views over London from a roof top garden. Amber's expert guide took us on a quest to find a secret London Stone. She led us through streets where we could reflect on the impact and legacy of Christopher Wren's architecture, great and small. She led us through many of the City's exquisitely well kept secret gardens which hid tranquil scenes akin to a Zelda adventure and monuments to lost Welsh monarchs. On the steps of the Guildhall, we learned of the many of the bizarre traditions and rituals of the London Guilds, whether that be barrel rolling, pancake flipping, or driving a flock of sheep across a London bridge! We descended into Roman ruins that lay ever present beneath London's feet. We were guided to spend time with the Agas Map and realised how, after the passage of time, the skeleton streets of London have largely remained the same. And the secret Stone? When we found it, we realised that Amber had been showing it to us all the time! London's secrets were framed and revealed like a scene from the Da Vinci Code.

We had a great tour. Amber is extremely knowledgeable and has an effortless manner that easily accommodated the youngest and most flighty of our group. Amber used her iPad to show us pictures of what we were learning about which was extremely helpful. Her affable style belies the fact that her tour is the product of a well thought out, well prepared, well woven storytelling of London - past and present.

I had a great time on a walking tour of the City of London with Amber. She was a fantastic guide and took us to parts of the city that you wouldn't know existed from secret gardens, to rooftop views, church cafes and museums off the beaten track. I very much enjoyed learning all about the history of Roman London and the legacy left behind today. Amber is very friendly, knowledgeable and would highly recommend you book with her to explore this amazing city.
