CEFAPIT was founded in 1990 as a non-profit organization to create the necessary conditions and to have guide organizations all over Spain. Since the competences in the field of Tourist Guides correspond to the different autonomous regions and it is these that have legislated, are legislated or will legislate, only with a solid organization that serves as a support and union between the regional and provincial federations and associations will it be possible to be in a position to guarantee our services adequately in a professional activity like ours, which is subject to important fluctuations in supply and demand. CEFAPIT is an organization that, as it represents the sector in Spain, and maintaining the respect of any other organization that represents Guides in any of the Autonomous Communities, aims, with the help of all, and the support of the European Federation of Guides (F.E.G.) to defend the profession of TOURIST GUIDE as a recognised and regulated profession.
