Federation of Tourist Guide Associations in Krakow

The Federation of Tourist Guide Associations was founded in Krakow in 2014. It is a non-profit organization. It operates according to the Law
on Associations (Journal of Laws 1989 No. 20 item 104) with amendments.

The Federation is a member of the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG, www.feg-touristguides.com), the Krakow Chamber of Tourism (KIT, www.kit.krakow.pl) and the Polish Tourism Council (PRT, www.facebook.com/polskaradaturystyka).

The aim of the Federation is to represent the position and interests of guides in relation to other entities at the national and international level, as well as to provide structural and substantive support to the activities and functioning of tour guide associations and tourist guides at the national and international level, and to create work standards for a guide in Krakow.

The Federation has developed a guidebook certification system, issues and renews guidebook certificates, supervises the training of new guides, and conducts exams for candidates for tourist guides in Krakow.

Initiatives

International Tourist Guide Day (MDPT) – February 21

Since 1990, in Krakow, since 1997, we have been celebrating the MDPT together with the owners and residents of the city. The idea is to show the work and it is fully performed by professional tourist guides. On this occasion, unknown for free tours, we show places that are not obvious, we still discover Krakow, tell about some people associated with Krakow.

 

World Tourism Day – September 27

The holiday was established in 1979 on the initiative of the World Tourism Organization acting on behalf of the United Nations. The celebrations are to shape public awareness of the importance and role of tourism in the modern world, both in terms of culture, politics and economy. On that day, the Federation grants rights to new guides who invite residents for free tours around Krakow.

 

Annual Industry Conferences of Guides and Pilots.
