Blue Badge Tourist Guides

Guide London’s guides are special. That’s because we are trained and qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guides who know London better than anyone.

We are versatile and are just as comfortable leading coach parties as we are giving private car tours in London or beyond.

Blue Badge Tourist Guides have detailed, in-depth knowledge of London’s highlights; Westminster Abbey, the British Museum, the Tower of London, etc., as well as places off the beaten path; Borough Market, Notting Hill, Harry Potter film locations, or small art galleries such as the Wallace Collection.

We can take you shopping, cycling along canal towpaths, or on a pub crawl at any time of day in a wide range of languages. Many of our guides are qualified lawyers, doctors, architects, and historians, which will add a whole new dimension to your tour.

We offer guides and tours for every occasion and will help you to have a great time in London. We work with consumers (families, couples, etc.), inbound tour operators, and corporates. We also provide study tours for professional and educational clients, including universities, town planners, government, and local departments.
