Being a Tour Guide is a responsibility; please familiarize yourself with The Code Of Ethics.
The Tour Guides Assoc. of Greater New Orleans, Inc. was established in April of 1985 as a non-profit 501(c)(3)* organization of nearly 300 guides, all licensed by the City of New Orleans. Our membership consists of new, experienced, and volunteer tour guides from a variety of backgrounds. Members are ready, willing and able to perform a variety of visitor services. Many tour operators and a variety of companies providing services to our city's visitors are also members of the association.
TGAGNOI is dedicated to the continuing education of our membership and to promote the integrity of our profession. We strive to improve the tour industry and assure that each and every visitor to the Greater New Orleans area returns home with a high-quality and memorable guest experience!
