Tourist guide

In each region of Italy, our profession is strictly regulated, in order to assure our visitors the best services and serious organisation in leading the visit... Do not trust an “illegal” guide as it could cost you a lot of money!

Our Law 47/07 art.10 + the additional Dir. 2005/36/CE art.5 distinguish specific rules for the tourist guide in Bologna and heavy fines or sanctions for unauthorized people and/or travel agencies employing them.
