“I have joined Anna for several of her virtual tours and what a fabulous experience they are. I have sat back on my sofa and enjoyed the wonderful sights she presents and been entertained by her lively commentary. She has an incredible background knowledge of the history of whatever topic she presents on and always has a few little amusing anecdotes to make everyone laugh. I am a local to the Thames but came away from the tour having learnt a great deal about where I have lived for 20 years!”
“Anna is a quintessential Blue Badge guide – informative, full of stories, professional, personable, polished, organized, and wonderful visuals.
I also took Anna’s virtual Venice – a city I thought I had no interest in visiting in person, but after Anna’s tour I’ve booked a trip, so that should tell you all you need to know about the caliber of Anna’s Venice tour!”
