Vania is a qualified guide for both the City of Westminster and the City of London, St Paul’s Cathedral and Guildhall
I was born in southern Brazil where I gained a degree in Nursing followed by a Bachelor in Law and Social Sciences. I have lived in London for the past 26 years. I have enjoyed exploring and learning about London, its history, art, architecture and its people and have taken all opportunities to further my knowledge of the city and appreciate its sights. I especially enjoy showing London to international visitors but I am constantly striving to design walks that would be of interest to all.
My tours are informative and fun and I can tailor any tour to suit your requirements, whether you want to visit the royal palaces and parks, or the shops and entertainment venues of Covent Garden and Soho. These tours can be adapted to suit the first time visitor or the keen London enthusiast and I can deliver personalised individual tours for families, companies and organisations.
My portfolio of tours includes:
- Gentlemen’s London
- Mayfair – its history and American connections
- Royal Westminster
- London’s Burning, the Great Fire and the Blitz
- City of London for First Time Visitors
- Highlights of National Gallery
- Guildhall Art Gallery

“Vania was more than our guide at the end of a wonderful and enjoyable day. We saw more things than we certainly would have known about without her help, we were real amigos. I could say it was the best day of my trip and I would refer her as a guide to all my family and friends. Thanks a lot to her work, allied with her culture, intelligence and sense of respect for all of us. I take this opportunity to once again thank her for everything you did for my family and friends.” E L
“It was such a great day. A truly fascinating walk round an area I thought I knew, but was oblivious to all the history and detail along the way. Vania was a most knowledgeable guide and managed to give lots of information in a factual, and memorable style. She has opened up a whole new experience of walking in London. I am already looking forward very much to my next tour”. L H
“Informative, exciting and educational! My experience of the tour of Mayfair, London exceeded my expectations and I didn’t realise that there were so many hidden gems in and around the area where I work in everyday. I learned so many interesting facts about places and buildings which I probably never would have known if I didn’t take the tour with Vania. Thank you!” J I
