The European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG) supports the EU efforts to facilitate free movement of provision of services within its member states, but also emphasises the importance of area-specific tourist guides to high quality provision of tourism services. This can only be achieved by a common high standard of qualification for Tourist Guides in all European countries. 

Tourist Guides are representatives of their cities, regions and countries. It depends largely on them if visitors feel welcome, want to stay longer or decide to come back. They therefore contribute considerably to the perception of the destination. 

Tourist Guides help visitors to experience, understand and enjoy the places they are visiting. Their role is to interpret the area specific environment and to help visitors to see what they are looking at. 

Consumers are best served by engaging a quality guiding services of high standard. 

Professionally qualified tourist guides are available worldwide. In Europe our members can be found in every country on the map opposite. Just click on the country to find out more about them. 

They will always be there to help you get the right picture in a clear and entertaining way.
