About us

We are proudly local tourist guides with an unsurpassed knowledge of our territory!

As tourist guides, we are licensed by Liguria’s regional government and we specialize in the heritage of local provinces and metropolitan areas. Known as Associazione Guide Turistiche Liguria (AGTL), our association is the oldest in Liguria: since 1988, AGTL has been guaranteeing the professionality of Ligurian tourist guides by providing opportunities for, enhancing, and promoting a thorough training and standards of excellence.

AGTL has about 180 members and is operational in this area through the branches of Genoa, La Spezia, Imperia and Savona; in turn, these are in charge of interfacing with local institutions.

This site will put you in touch with those who have the right skills to satisfy your requests.

Our members are fluent in thirteen languages: French, Greek, English, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, German, Ukrainian, and Hungarian. Many of them are licensed for more than one Ligurian province and a few are also tour leaders and environmental guides.

The passion and professionality of our tourist guides; their rigorous local training and impeccable qualifications; their in-depth knowledge of the territory and its traditions; their ability to create a variety of itineraries and even solve any problem that may arise all guarantee the excellent standards of our guided tours.

Please note: Only tourist guides authorized by the Liguria regional government display an identification card with their photo set against a rainbow background.
