Hey my name is Hind and I’m a student here in London. I’m a confident, charismatic and curious young woman who loves to learn more about the world around her. When I first arrived in London, I fell in love with the city instantly. The culture, the history, the art, the architecture- everything about it is wonderful. And that’s just what you can see on the surface: there are so many more stories behind these beautiful buildings, secrets hidden in these streets. That’s what makes my tours the best to go on- what drives me is my passion to learn more about the history of this city and that’s what I want to show you on my tours. Added plus: I have great recommendations for other amazing things to do in London and restaurant to visit that will make your trip to London extra special!

About the Tour

Want to know where Casanova once stayed in London? Or how Soho changed from a neighbourhood for the rich to a haven for the poor? Or perhaps you’re a music lover and you’ve always wanted to see where rock stars like the Beatles recorded their songs and the streets they partied on? Then this is the tour for you to learn everything you need (and want) to know about one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in the city

A neighbourhood with a history spanning back to the 17th century, I will guide you through these streets, telling you all about the history the buildings and the people who once lived there. From topics like music, sex, fashion, disease and the LGBT+ community, there’s nothing you won’t know about this vibrant community when the tour is done.

Some of the places we visit on my amazing tour: 

  • Soho Square 
  • John Snow Pub 
  • Carnaby Street 
  • Location of the recording studios where performers like Elton John and David Bowie recorded in. 
  • Venue where ‘Beatlemania’ was coined. 

And so much more...

How to find me: In front of The Cambridge Pub and I'll be wearing a pink headscarf

The Soho tour we took with Hind was great. She showed us all the fascinating places, taught us a lot of interesting historical and cultural facts and gave a lot of great food (and theatre) recommendations. But even better than the tour itself was the evident enthusiasm and passion with which she delivered the information. Definitely would recommend this and all of her other tours to everybody!

Not a daily tour as mentioned.. canceled a day before the tour was supposed to be

Response from Hind
Firstly, I try and provide my tours everyday, but I’m a full-time student so I do have other responsibilities sometimes. Secondly, I did not cancel our booking last minute. I messaged you numerous times to check that you had confirmed that you were attending and you didn’t respond. I had other guests booked the same day who did respond to my messages. I waited a little after my other guests arrived but I was under the impression that you were not attending my tour. I understand not being able to attend my tour was disappointing, and I’m sorry that I didn’t get the chance to host you and your group on my tour, but I do not appreciate having the facts misrepresented.

The tour with Hind was great. We discovered new parts of soho and learned valuable information that we wouldn’t have known otherwise. Hind was very nice and knowledgeable:)
