Etymology

The word "guide" was incorporated into
(Middle) English via Old French
"guider"
which meant "to guide, lead, conduct"
it was originally taken by
Old French
from Frankish "*witan" meaning "show
the way" (compare modern
Dutch "weten")
from Proto-Germanic "*wit-" meaning "to know"
(compare Old
English "witan" meaning "to see").
The French word influenced by Old
Provencal
"guidar" meaning "guide or leader" is from the
same source.


Tourist guide

A person who guides visitors in the language
of their choice and
interprets the cultural and
natural heritage of an area. The guide will

normally possess an area-specific qualification
usually issued and/or
recognised by the
appropriate authority. Tourist Guides are

representatives of the cities, regions and
countries for which they are
qualified.
It depends largely on them if visitors feel welcome,
want to
stay longer or decide to come back.
They therefore contribute considerably
to the
perception of the destination.
Tourist Guides are able to help
travellers
understand the culture of the region visited and
the way of
life of its inhabitants. They have a
particular role on the one hand to

promote the cultural and natural heritage whilst on
the other hand to help
ensure its sustainability by
making visitors aware of its importance and

vulnerability.


A Selection of Guides for Tourism and Tourists


Some guides are available at no cost on the internet,
others are publications that must be purchased or
viewed at a library that owns the guides from a
publisher of guidebooks for tourists.
