Guide Licensing Information for India

Tourism is one of the most important industries in India. It gives the locals lots of ways to earn their living and at the same time share their culture and history with foreigners. That’s why it is extremely important to impose certain rules over guiding activity in order to make it high quality.

The government of India acknowledges that guides are a so-called means of communication for tourists, and it is extremely important to provide only the most qualitative guiding service in order not to spoil people’s impressions of India. That’s why in order to become a guide it is necessary to go through certain procedures – thorough training and rigorous examination. It is worth noting that the examination is usually conducted by the tourism department every two years.

Once you pass the examination you get a license that permits you to take tourists around protected monuments. It is worth noting that it wasn’t like this all the time, and locals usually provided guiding service for tourists. But the situation has changed after several tourists complained being harassed by their guides.
