President of European Federation of Tourist Guide 

"We have all been guiding in our own areas of qualification on gastronomy tours, wine tasting, traditional food markets and taking our guests to cooking classes, but so far with no formal life-long training for our profession in this specialist field. It is a great chance for us all to be trained and assessed by the WFTA and finally become ‘Culinary-Certified Tourist Guides.”
