Who we are
All our tours are guided by professional Blue Badge Tourist Guides, reassuring you that you are in the company of someone who knows what they are doing. Not only will we know the facts, but we can communicate in a professional, engaging way that is suited to your group.
Blue Badge Tourist Guides have been fully trained to reach the highest of standards in tourist guiding and have passed stringent examinations.
The coveted Blue Badge Is awarded by The Institute of Tourist Guiding to men and women who have successfully completed accredited training courses over 2 years and passed a number of written papers and practical exams.
Since the announcement in 2005 that London would host the Olympic & Paralympic Games in 2012, our team of guides has followed the whole project closely. We led walking tours around the perimeter of the site pre Games as well as on-site bus tours for the Olympic Delivery Authority from 2009 – 2011.
We worked for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic & Paralympic Games, sponsors and other organisations during the Games or were involved as volunteer Games Makers.
Since the 2012 we have worked closely with the London Legacy Development Corporation, the organization behind Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, formed to use the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop a dynamic new heart for east London.
We are flexible and can tailor make a tour to suit your kind of group and any particular interests you may have. Tours of the Park can be on foot, by bicycle or a mix of private coach/vehicle and on foot.
We can manage individuals, clubs and associations, schools, universities and colleges, professional groups and incentives.
Many of our team of guides are accredited to lead tours in other languages such as French, Italian, Spanish and Greek.
The Institute of Tourist Guiding
The Institute of Tourist Guiding was set up in 2002 with the support of the Department of Culture, Media & Sports and Visit Britain and has since been instrumental in raising the profile and status of tourist guiding in the industry nationwide.
Our team of guides carry full public liability insurance and belong to the Institute of Tourist Guiding as well as the Association of Professional Tourist Guides for London or the nationwide Guild of Registered Tourist Guides.
