fewest or least number

hi all
i have seen a question that i'd like to ask for your opinion about
it is a sentence that says
"10 is the ...... number of tourists allowed to be in the group" ( fewest-least)
the guide says that the answer is least
is that a mistake?
should it be fewest? and why is it (least) if it is the right answe
