Claire

Best driver-guide in London. (All rounder because she also pinch hits brilliantly on walking tours.) Knows her London – she was bred and born here – but has been a driver-guide for many years. And not just in England. She’s just got it. The Good Fairy touched her with the “you’re going to be a brilliant guide” wand at birth. In short, she’s got the gift – the flair, the knack, the know-how. And that special something, that god-given talent has been honed by years of experience. She’s switched on, fun, gentle, enthusiastic, and “awesomely” [as one of her Yank clients put it] knowledgable. Turn her loose in a kitchen she makes the best pasta this side of Genoa.
