Last Update vor 5 Monaten

The tour guide is a professional who interprets the cultural, historical, natural and gastronomic heritage of a region and who holds a specific qualification issued and recognized by the competent authorities

In France, this accreditation is issued to people with at least a Bachelor's degree in one of the specialties related to the profession (languages, tourism, history, archaeology, etc.) The license is issued by the Department of Culture via the State offices. 

Check the existing qualification documents in Europe to avoid encountering pirate guides or amateurs.
