About the Principal Guide

Peter West has 30 years guiding experience and is also highly qualified as a Blue Badge London Tour Guide and a member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding. (ITG)

The ITG are the government approved standard-setting body for tourist guiding in the UK. They are also the organisation for the annual validation of all professional tourist guides in those areas. Scotland is covered by The Scottish Tourist Guides Association. All Members of the Institute hold the prestigious Blue Badge, the Institute's highest award. They are qualified to give general, specialist and tailor-made tours in one or more areas, at a variety of sites, on foot or on a moving vehicle (eg coach, car, boat or helicopter).
Institute of Tourist Guiding
Some Members also offer driver guide services, guiding you in their car. Associates are normally qualified to take a variety of walking tours in a particular town, in part of a large conurbation like London or in a specific country area.

One of your first questions will naturally be based around why you should have confidence in me, our service, or indeed any one of my colleagues, should one of them be offered to you. So then who am I? I am a highly experienced, well acknowledged and qualified Blue Badge guide. The Blue Badge Registered Guides of Great Britain are internationally acclaimed Guides, who have sat and passed the complicated and lengthy in-depth tests of the Institute of Tourist Guiding (To find out more about this see the links at the end of the page).

Peter at Housesteads Roman fort on Hadrians Wall

During my 30 years in the tourist guiding industry I have worked with London's best and most interesting hotels, and therefore feel it fair to assert that I have a special understanding of the sophisticated and informed visitor. Born a Londoner, with many family and professional connections, makes me especially entwined with London. However my past experience and achievements, such as qualifications and experience in the world of industry as a Production Engineer, real estate broker in central London and in the field of publishing - as well as having lived in France, Ireland, Italy and Switzerland - have enriched me with a deep and wide comprehension of the life and history of Europe. It's a fact that I have had and still have great fun gaining experience from a range of professional and social activities both here in the UK, and in Ireland and France, which has translated into the way I interpret the world about us on our voyage of discovery.
Housesteads
This means that you, my potential client, can gain from a broad base of accomplishments. Furthermore every single year during the low season further study on-site, in lectures and on tour is undertaken to maintain and improve the delivery of service to you.
Tour vehicle The driver-guided tours will be undertaken in our seven passenger seated luxury, leather upholstered, air conditioned vehicle. What is more, even the less well known routes and destinations can be tackled, and varied without time wastage at a moment's notice, due to our on-board satellite navigation and information system. Any colleague of mine that might, in certain circumstances, be chosen for you, will be similarly qualified, experienced and equipped. One last and fairly unique feature why you are safer and more secure with me is that my vehicle is fitted with security windows, making it very difficult for intruders to steal from the vehicle when you need to leave things behind on site visits, or with luggage in transit.
