In 1990, the day was launched by the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations. Only 15 countries had participated then. Today, more than 75 countries participate in the celebrations.

Everyone involved in the long and wide tourism value chain whether as tourist guides or as other links in the chain, has reason to feel very proud of how our sector is performing right now.’’
