My name is Pete Berthoud and I am an award-winning, professional London Tour Guide. I specialise in highly personalised, small group, private tours in London based around the interests of my guests.

Past tours have been tailored to include subjects as diverse as The Beatles, Harry Potter, Churchill, World War II, Grinling Gibbons, Sherlock Holmes, Alice in Wonderland, Royalty, American links in London, theatre, shopping, food and drink, pubs, architecture, transport, street art and the quirky, hidden places 'off the beaten path'.

Whatever your interests I'd like to show you some of the city I love.
