Roberta is lovely and personable, she was full of knowledge of the area and the buildings taking us through a trip to the past as well as the present. Definitely worth making time for on a trip to London or if you live in London like me but haven't walked around the City in years to see how much it has changed !

Beautiful trip around the “giants” of London. We spent a lovely afternoon with Roberta who guided us through the streets of The City of London. We had the chance to admire London from the rooftops of two of the highest buildings in the city. Roberta has been a charming host and really well prepared. A ‘must-do’ experience!!
