about us

Felicity Whittle, founder of Gold Star Guides, is an award winning Blue Badge Tourist Guide.  The Blue Badge is the highest guiding qualification offered by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. Felicity holds guiding qualifications for both the Heart of England and for London (and has won awards for both areas!).


Having spent several years working at the House of Commons, part of the UK Parliament, Felicity moved to California during the 1990s where she started guiding at Filoli, a beautiful house and gardens (much filmed) owned by the American National Trust... and knew she'd found her perfect career!


With an interest in places where history has happened, a curiosity about how people live and have lived and a passion for helping visitors to understand the country she calls home, Felicity's knowledge and sense of fun ensure her guiding is entertaining and informative.
