Hi! I’m Amber. Here’s my story!
I was born in the great state of Texas, but I consider myself a Londoner because I’ve lived in London for 15 years. After earning my Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing at Texas Tech University (Go Raiders!), I followed my dream of being a flight attendant. When 9/11 happened, life changed. I moved to London (’cause there was this boy…) and found myself back in school for my Master’s in International Marketing. While studying here, I worked part time as an open-top, double decker bus guide. Later, I developed my career as a marketing consultant in a variety of industries and I still do that from time to time, but I really love bringing history to life.
When the recession hit in 2009 (marketing is always the first budget to go!), I got serious about guiding, studied London formally, and earned several qualifications to help pursue my love of being a professional tour guide. So, I’m an American Tour Guide In London. No — you don’t have to be American to come on my tours… I have clients from all over the world! Exploring and sharing this city with others is a privilege.
Some people think it’s strange for an American to be a London tour guide, but I am passionate about the city and love what I do. And guess what? It’s SO MUCH FUN!
Many of my tours involved costume -- because dressing up is fun for me and brings something a little extra to the tour.
