The centenary attracted more than 200 girls who marched through the city on Saturday, bearing flags.
They represented 30 different groups from Crownhill, Tamerton, Devonport and St Budeaux.
Guides started in September 1909 when a group of girls turned up at a Boy Scouts rally at Crystal Palace in London.
They persuaded Lord Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts, to establish their own movement.
The organisation caters for girls of all ages, from Rainbows (aged five and six), Brownies (aged seven to 10) and Guides up to the age of 14.
