Looking for a Florence Tour Guide? Maybe you know, or maybe not, that recent changes in EU laws allowed every tour guide in Europe to provide his services anywhere, including Florence. Before this new regulation was approved, obtaining the license to be a Florence Tour Guide was very difficult: candidates had to study for two years attending a long course and passing a difficult exam and this was made to keep the service quality as high as possible. The lobbies of multinational tour operators favorited this new regulation to increase their margins, totally disregarding the final customer who is not guaranteed anymore. The new regulation means that as long as you have done a course anywhere in the EU you can guide tourists anywhere in the continent. It’s like passing the exam to be a teacher in Bulgarian language and going to teach Dutch to Americans.
Think of this when you decide to book a cheap group tour thinking that you found a great deal: maybe your tour guide passed the exam to be a guide in Barcelona or Berlin and has no idea what the Renaissance in Florence is about, there is no way to know.
