Alsatian Guild of Tourist Guides
Created in 1979, the Alsatian Guild of Tourist Guides (in French: Association de Guides-conférenciers d'Alsace) aims to promote and defend the profession of guide-lecturer in the Alsatian territory. Our Guild owns the registered brand and the Limited Company Book a Guide.
We are all qualified by the French government departments for Culture and for Tourism. We are as well the only external guides allowed to guide in the Museums and in the France Heritage Sites.
We propose you several tour's themes (the classical ones, Jewish heritage, gastronomy, wine tourism...) and we adapt our offer to all our guests. We also propose you other additional services (as shuttles airport-hotel), and all that in 12 different languages!
Our Guild is member of the FNGIC, French Guides Federation, which is member of the FEG, European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations and of the WFGTA, World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations. We work together for quality tourism.
