Gary - Alternative London

The Jolly RogersComment

Today our visitor’s name was Gary and he is a tour guide. He is originally from "Isle Of Wight" which is in South England. He moved to London when he was 18 years old and spent time visiting other different countries.

When he was in college he studied music and more specifically bass. When he came back to London, he had an idea of starting a company where he could give tours but not like the usual tour. He decided to give tours featuring unusual places that people wouldn't usually go to and to look at things that they wouldn't usually notice or wouldn't care about until they hear the back story of it. After working alone for 6 months he needed colleagues so he hired people that knew a lot about London.
