The BVGD and its international network
The BVGD represents the interests of its members at a national and international level. As an umbrella organization of tourist guides in Germany it itself is a member of two major international tourist guide organizations: the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG) and the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA).
This network strengthens cooperation and promotes the exchange of information between national associations in Europe and the world. The professional representation of members in the supra-national tourism-related bodies gets so even more weight. In addition, it guarantees a high quality standard of guided tours and makes helps the public to recognize tourist guiding as a profession.
