The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves it at the end of the tour; they do not travel with the group.

However, they are not required to have specific art, architecture, or historical knowledge. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and, if caught doing so, can be fined.
