Our Partners

We couldn’t do our work without the collaboration and support of our guiding colleagues and our travel trade partners. As the largest national professional association for Blue and Green Badge Tourist Guides, we work with numerous partners here in the UK and abroad.

These partnerships are a key part of keeping our community of members connected, giving them a collective voice and sharing best practice in professional guiding nationally and internationally.

Professional Guiding Organisations

Nationally we work with our colleagues at the Institute of Tourist Guiding and the The Driver Guides’ Association.

Regionally we also work closely with colleagues at The Association of Professional Tourist Guides in London and Regional Associations across the UK. You can browse our Regional Associations here

In Europe we are proud members of the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG).

Internationally we are proud members of the  World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA)

Trade Organisations

The Guild is also a proud member of  UKInbound the only UK trade association representing inbound tourism. We benefit from their network of members, their monthly travel trade events, their lobbying and campaigning clout.

Site Specific 

Members of the Guild and colleagues across other guiding organisations in the UK are part of a network of Site Liaison Teams that work with hundreds of specific sites across the country — museums, galleries, heritage sites etc  — to improve the visitor experience and keep abreast of site specific news and regulations. These relationships are invaluable to us and our site specific partners.
