SPAIN

 

In Spain, guiding (Guía turístico) is a partly regulated profession (regulated by regions – Comunidades Autonomas), where some autonomous regions, such as the Basque country, have not regulated the profession, others like Asturias or Andalusia have regulated it, and Madrid has deregulated it.

Museums and Patrimonio Nacional (Royal palaces, castles and some museums) are not part of the regional guiding regulations, and guides need to have a licence to be able to guide in these places.

Despite regions not having regulated guiding or have deregulated guiding, operators are frequently reporting verbal attacks on international guides/tour directors from local guides. If you are experiencing such issues, please contact georges@iatmbelgium.org
