Claudia Bacchelli Private tour guide in London - United Kingdom

Claudia Bacchelli

Guide profile:

Welcome to London!

My name is Claudia and my job is to make your experience in London remarkable and fulfilling. I am a qualified Blue Badge Guide, the highest recognised qualification in the UK for tourist guiding. My mission is to show you London and its beauties, from the most famous and popular to the most secret and hidden and tell you its stories with enthusiasm and professionalism.

When I first came to London after living in Japan I was unfamiliar with the city, but then started exploring its streets, green areas, fabulous galleries and museums and I immediately fell in love with all of it. The intense training I then attended to get the Blue Badge qualification amplified my knowledge and therefore my enthusiasm about this vibrant city. This made me realize that there are hidden gems behind every corner of London and I want to share this with you!

Before starting the guiding career I worked in many art galleries in London like the National Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts and both of Tate Modern and Tate Britain. I also have few years experience of working in the Tower of London, which I know inside out!

Thank to my previous experience inventing and creating educational toys in Italy and my teaching experience in Japan I was always convinced that learning is only possible when you enjoy it.

Let’s enjoy London together, a city where innovation and initiative never stops and let me prove this to you: ‘when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford’ (Samuel Johnson).

We’ll go from the most famous art galleries to the ones hidden like precious stones, from medieval to street art.

Come and learn about the fascinating castles of nobles and monarchs who shaped the English history. We will go through the important English royal dynasties with a particular attention to the mysteries and plots during Henry VIII’s Tudor family.

Claudia was an awesome guide, knowledgeable, patient and caring. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. She gave us suggestions on what we might be on our own and helped us feel completely comfortable in London. I highly recommend Claudia and look forward to seeing her again.
