  • CEPLIS - European Council of the Liberal Professions - News - Free tours alert! please disseminate the information
    There is an issue with regards to trading standards and transparency The tours are advertised as free but in practice a tip is demanded from the tour participants Regardless of the tip received the usual practice is that then a commission per participant is demanded by the company from the person conducting the tour The consumer and tour participant is therefore misslead in two ways the tours are not without cost and a commission is demanded by the operator 3 The tours raise several legal issues with regards to the income earned by the persons organising and conducting the tours Is the income earned declared Do they pay tax on it Do they have work permits Has the employer a legal right to demand commission from the tips earned If the tour leaders are not employed by the organiser is their self employed status declared Do they pay national insurance Do they pay any taxes Do they have a legal permit to trade on the streets Do they have professional liability insurance 4 There are issues with regards to health and safety Do the persons leading the tours have any training in health and safety Do they have first aid training POINTS OF WIDER CONCERN 1 The image of the qualified tourist guide risks being negatively influenced by the conduct of unqualified persons operating with no regard for quality or ethical standards while just claiming to be tourguides 2 Group tourism as a whole risks being tarnished and viewed negatively by residents and local stakeholders for who these tours may appear to be an environmental nuisance and not differentiated from those tour operators who do respect quality standards and the law 3 Where these free tours operate at or within close proximity of historical sites and monuments overcrowding they frequently have very large groups and often several tours are conducted at the same time and a complete lack of group management and control are already having a negative and detrimental effect on the presentation and preservation of the relevant sites For other visitors and individuals and groups led by qualified tourist guides the experience of the site monument may as a result be severely impaired 4 These tours are the very opposite of the broadly agreed goal of striving towards increased quality standards and sustainability within the tourism industry and the wish to create sustainable employment for young people The persons conducting the tours are paid in tips only which means low payment with no guaranteed income or employment No professional qualification for conducting the tours is required These are only ever short term engagements and could be seen as a way of exploiting young people outside the professional labour market Meanwhile the operation of such free tours make it even more difficult for those young people who are through educational qualifications and professional training seeking sustainable employment as qualified tourist guides Their efforts are severely undermined by the phenomenon of free tours Do you wish to be guided by
