Huge congratulations to the nine new tourist guides with their shining Scottish Tourist Guides Association Green Badges for the Northern Highlands. #FEG_QualifiedTouristGuides


Sometimes a small group can achieve far more then years in making. That day in Macau the 5 of us around that round table following the lunch break simply wrote what Tourist guides were, meant and needed.

It seems an appropriate time to re-post a document created in 2013 by Delegates to the WFTGA Convention in Macau, SAR China.

Certificates titled the Macau Declaration were distributed to convention attendees, posted on our website and emailed to all members.

It's message is even more important to the tourism community today.

World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations
2013 Macau Declaration for
Tourist Guides Around the World

1. WFTGA declares that its member tourist guides act as ambassadors of their countries and regions and as custodians of their area’s traditions, history, culture and environment.

2. WFTGA supports the definition of tourist guiding as an area-specific qualification, usually issued and / or recognised by the appropriate authority. WFTGA believes that any person without a qualification is not competent to interpret and explain the cultural and natural heritage and specialities of that area.

3. WFTGA declares it is not ethical or appropriate for anyone to work as a tourist guide without having the above qualifications.

4. WFTGA declares that tourist guides are essential to the tourism industry and should be acknowledged as professionals by tour operators, tourism stakeholders and local and / or national authorities and be fairly compensated.

5. WFTGA and its member tourist guides stand by our declaration that

“ We are the Professionals,’’

who work in the best professional manner to achieve high standards of service and contribute to society.

This Declaration was agreed by the WFTGA General Assembly at the 15th International Tourist Guide Convention in Macau SAR China on January 18, 2013.

Thank you Tatev for bringing this to our attention

If tourism is a capitalist phenomenon, overtourism is its demented late-capitalist cousin: selfie-stick deaths, all-you-can-eat ships docking at historic ports, stag nights that end in property crimes, the live-streaming of the ruination of fragile natural habitats, et cetera.


Seven guides who played major roles in the development of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association were recognised by being put on a new Roll of Honour. They include as shown in this photograph (left to right): Forbes McNaughton, Ros Newlands, Norma Clarkson, chair Linda Arthur, Sally Spaven, Tom Caskie and Doreen Boyle. Also, Mary Kemp-Clarke who was away guiding when photo was taken. #ScottishTouristGuides #FEG_QualifiedTouristGuides

Notre Père, qui es aux cieux,
Que ton nom soit sanctifié,
Que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.

Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offences
Comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation,
mais délivre-nous du mal,
car c'est à toi qu'appartiennent le règne,
la puissance et la gloire, aux siècles des siècles.

In 1990, Mrs. Titina Loizides, President of the WFTGA was involved when it was held for the first time, and 15 countries participated. Since then, tourist guides in an ever growing number of countries have been giving help to their local communities, conducting tours for disabled persons, disadvantaged persons, for children, industry partners, officials and the general public.

Events are also held for local tourist guides including presentations and retraining courses. It is a public relations event par excellence, drawing the attention of local authorities, fellow citizens and the media to the quality and value of the work of professional tourist guides. Each member country contributes to the success of the day in its own way; coach companies have contributed complimentary coaches, attractions and museums have opened their doors without charge. Each year, awareness grows and there is an increasing contribution by both regional and national governments to the International Tourist Guide Day.
