Definition of a tourist guide

A tourist guide is someone who possesses an area-specific tourist guide qualification issued and/or recognised by the appropriate public authority.

The role of the tourist guide is to guide visitors from abroad or the home country, in the language(s) of their choice, interpreting the natural and cultural heritage of the area of qualification.
