AbdulMaalik Tailor, a Muslim convert for over 20 years is London’s first professionally qualified Muslim Tour Guide. A Londoner from birth, he specialises in Muslim heritage in Britain. He is the founder of Muslim History Tours, specialising in Halal Domestic and UK Inbound travel. He organises a range of inspiring Muslim history walks within and out of London distinctively wearing his Fez hat. He is also involved in research and delivers talks relating to local and national Muslim heritage of Britain. He also works with the media to promote Muslim history in Britain as well as with local authorities.
AbdulMaalik also works with Schools, youth groups and other educational and community organisations to further community cohesion within the city, bringing together different communities. As part of Muslim History Tours, he acts as an inbound tour operator as well, welcoming tourists from afar to London, organising for them Muslim friendly and Halal hotels, cruises and other tours. In recognition of this, Muslim History Tours came runners up for World’s Best Halal Tour Operator in 2015 (losing out to Etihad!).
