Since passing the Knowledge of London to become a licensed London Taxi driver, I have also qualified as City of London guide and a London cab Guide. I am also a member of the City of London Guide Lecturers Association.
I am an active member of the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers. This includes participating in the drive to Euro Disney along with around 100 taxi drivers, the police, ambulance, and paramedics along with support staff. For a once in a life time trip for children with severe medical conditions and life threatening conditions. One of my roles within the Company is to be part of the education committee and this includes instructing fellow cab drivers to become guides. I am also a keen supporter of Help for Heroes and English Heritage.
My tours in London start with the highlight or classic tour, showing the main tourist sites and places of interest for our many visitors to London. But saying that I can also offer tours including Harry Potter, Jack the Ripper including the old East end, Greenwich , The London docks, Film locations and then there’s Roman, Medieval and London as the financial district.
