“Blue Badge Tourist Guides were instrumental in helping us build public support for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, working on the Olympic Park tour programme from 2009 right up to the Games themselves……..They were professional, reliable and enthusiastic, and hosted all kinds of tours from school groups to international delegations. It was a pleasure to work with them”
