Driver Guides

Private Guided Tours of London and throughout Britain by Private Car.

Travelling with your personal Blue Badge or Green Badge tourist guide in his or her own car is the ultimate sightseeing and touring experience.
Whether you are on your own, with your partner, friends or family (normally up to 7 people) you will enjoy the flexibility and convenience of a personalised itinerary and doing it at your own pace.

Guild members who offer this service own high quality vehicles and have provided proof that they and their vehicle are covered by the correct Private Hire insurance and Private Hire Vehicle licences. The Road Traffic Acts require that vehicles used for driver-guiding in Britain are insured for Private Hire use.

In addition, all driver-guides in England and Wales must have Private Hire (PHV) driver and vehicle licences and all driver-guiding assignments must be handled by a licensed PHV operator. In Scotland PHV licences are not normally required for this type of work.

Users of driver-guide services must satisfy themselves that the legal insurance cover and licences are in place. In this context “user” shall include any person booking, hiring, being a passenger or acting as agent for another party.

The British Guild of Tourist Guides cannot accept responsibility for interpretation of the insurance and licensing requirements covering a Driver-Guide’s services.
