A true Londoner born and bred, Pepe has lived in London all his life after this great-grandparents emigrated here in the 1880’s and have been here ever since.
His first love is theatre, following a visit to the London Palladium at just 3 years old, in which he tried to jump on the stage mid way through the performance!
Originally trained as a Stage Manage, he spent 6 years travelling the UK, working in various theatres and living out of a suitcase. He then spent 15 years travelling the world as a Tour Manager and has visited more than 50 countries, including the USA more than 100 times!
In 2008 he felt that he had subdued his travel bug and decided to become a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide – loving nothing more than showing clients the best our city has to offer, including London’s hidden secrets. You haven’t really seen this City until you’ve seen it with a true Londoner.
Pepe recently passed the Institute of Tourist Guiding Train the Trainers course and is looking forward to training new guides in the future.
He now considers himself immensely lucky to be living in London with 50+ theatres on his doorstep and a theatre habit that sees him seeing at least one show per week.
