Scottish Tourist Guides Association

Established in 1959, the aim of Scottish Tourist Guides Association is simple: to provide clients with professional tourist guides who will inspire, educate and entertain.

Over the years, the STGA has built up a solid network of clients and has developed a first class reputation for providing highly skilled guides who can bring any travel itinerary to life. The STGA is the only professional membership body for fully trained and accredited guides in Scotland and is endorsed by both VisitScotland and VisitBritain.

The STGA now has over 500 members based in Scotland listed under different categories including Blue Badge Guides, Green Badge Guides and Yellow Badge Guides. Each guide brings a host of different skills ranging from languages to specialist areas of interest but what they all have in common is that they are great communicators.

Whether you’re travelling alone, with family and friends or as part of a leisure or corporate group – there’s no doubt that STGA can supply the right guide with the right skills to enhance your visit to Scotland.
