The Blue Badge Guides

All DGA guides have the Blue Badge. This is the top guiding qualification,   issued and regulated by Institute of Tourist Guiding or The Scottish Tourist Guides Association.  The qualification is recognised by Visit Britain as “Britain’s Official professional Tourist Guides”, and dictates that all Blue Badge guides are informed, knowledgeable and customer service trained.

And it can take up to two years to qualify for a Blue Badge.  And it doesn’t stop once we have the Badge. As a on-going condition of membership Blue Badge guides are required to do continuous training and personal development, including specialist courses and exams.

And many of us have a passion and expertise for all kinds of specialist history – ancient and modern. From Shakespeare to the Beatles, Stonehenge to Harry Potter, Jack the Ripper to Jack Daniels (whisky tours) Gardens to Shopping – we’ve got it covered.
