I was born and bred in London and have lived here all his life apart from a year traveling the world in my 20’s. My professional life began working as a stage manager, followed by 15 years as a Tour Manager leading tours of the UK, Ireland and Europe, the USA, Canada, New Zealand and The Middle and Far East. I qualified as a London Blue Badge Guide in 2011 and was honoured to receive the award for Best Overall Practical Guide. Pepe is a tutor on the London Blue Badge training course. In lockdown he created a virtual tour training programme which has been attended by more than 400 Institute of Tourist Guiding accredited guides around the UK.
The blue badge is the highest attainable qualification for tourists guiding in the UK. London Blue Badge Guides have to pass 11 examinations before receiving their badge. The highly prestigious badge gives exclusive guiding access to many major sites in London including Westminster abbey and Saint Pauls Cathedral.
