Why Use A Blue Badge Guide ?

Tour Guide Blue BadgeEntertaining, reliable, informative and professional with local and up to date knowledge the wealth of experience of a Blue Badge Guide is respected by private clients and discriminating tour operators and travel agents throughout the world.

At many attractions including Westminster Abbey and The Tower of London, Blue Badge Guides are often the only outside guides permitted to conduct tours. With your own guide at hand, you can easily ask questions and find out more about what interests you the most.

For those with limited time, a specialist highlights tour of a museum or a gallery with a professional will ensure that you do not miss anything important and can be adapted to fit any particular points of interest you may have. As well as Hugh, many Blue Badge Guides have their own specialisms. Hugh would be delighted to assist you in sourcing a guide if he cannot accomodate your requirements directly. The website for the Institute of Tourist Guides is www.itg.org.uk.
