Association of Guides of New Aquitaine
Created in 1983, the Association des Guides de Nouvelle-Aquitaine or AGNA (formerly AGICA) now brings together a hundred qualified guides, making their know-how and professionalism available.
The members are all holders of a professional card issued by the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Culture, which authorizes them to carry out guided tours in museums and historical monuments.
Calling on the Guides who are members of the AGNA means:
- have as interlocutor an association of qualified and competent tour guides
- have access to a directory of qualified guides, whose in-depth knowledge of the Aquitaine territory is constantly updated and enriched by continuous training.
- find skills for several languages including English, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Russian…
