You'll find that Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana) places a heavy emphasis on the necessity for a spiritual guide. It is a central component of Vajrayana practice.

Yes, but it's important to study and learn about it before one chooses a Vajrayana teacher, so one knows what and what not to look for: lest one end up with one of the many fraudulent deceivers out there masquerading as the real deal.
