The World Tourism Network yesterday celebrated World Tourist Guides Day with tour guides from around the world.

Wearing sun glasses for the bright future of travel and tourism was the message this progressive organization is telling the world.

WFTGA, The World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations, is a not-for-profit, non-political organization which groups together around the world tourist guide associations; individual tourist guides where no association exists, tourism partners of both the WFTGA and member associations, educational institutes in tourism for tourist guides, convention and visitors bureaus, and affiliate members who have direct or indirect association with tourist guides.

The WFTGA’s main purpose is to promote, market, and ensure that tourist guides are recognized as the ambassadors of a region. They are the first and sometimes the only representation of the population a visitor will meet.
WFTGA offers services to members but also communicates to those in search of the services of professional area specific tourist guides and where to hire them.

The Austrian-based organization is an affiliated member of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and joined the World Tourism Network to be part of the important discussion.

WTN recently started the Tourist Guide Interest group. The group is under the leadership of Maricar Donato, a Washington DC-based global ambassador of WFTGA.

Learn more about what tourist guides think and how they work and survive. WFTGA President Alushca Ritchie from South Africa will explain.

Dr. Taleb Rifai, former Secretary General of UNWTO, and co-chair of the WTN said tourist guides are the essence of our industry.
