Guide Licensing Information


Peru is a large country on the west side of South America. It covers such a broad expanse that its climates vary based on location. The weather is tropical in the east, humid in the Amazon Rainforest, and becomes a dry desert in the west. In addition, with parts of the Andes Mountains available, you will certainly need to pack appropriately. 

During the wetter seasons, around February, the Inca Trail and some other locations are normally closed for annual cleanup. However many popular tourist destination will still be available like Cusco, the former capital of the Incan Empire, and Machu Picchu, listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.  For fans of ancient cultures and history, Peru is a vacation destination that cannot be missed.

For those with an itch to explore the beautiful wonders nature has made available, visit the lesser known natural mud baths at the Hervideros de Zorritos, beautiful Lake Titicaca, and the Colca and Cotahuasi Canyons, more than twice the depth of the Grand Canyon in the United States. 

If you are looking for a more active vacation, Puerto Chicama is renowned by surfers for its long waves, El Cerro Blanco is revered by sandboarding and dune riders as the “Holy Grail” of sand dunes, and a number of marine sports and fishing excursions are available off Peru’s numerous beaches.

Guide Licensing Information for Peru

Peru is famous for its rich Incan heritage, which can be admired in numerous sites scattered all over the country. And there’s also the mysterious Nazca desert, which is attraction in its own category. That’s why the help of a professional tour guide can be rather handy in Peru. The guiding activity is licensed in this country depending on the purpose of the tour. If it emphasizes the Peruvian history, culture or nature, or includes special physical activities like trekking or mountain climbing, the guide should possess a license according to his or her proficiency. However, if the tour is aimed at general activities such as brief sightseeing, shopping or exploring local restaurants, a license is not needed.

The licensing process starts with a state exam held at the local branch of the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Commerce and Tourism. This exam evaluates the applicants knowledge in various domains, including Peruvian culture, history, as well as specific skills such as safety measures for long walks, in case the applicant wishes to organize trekking tours throughout the country. There are various courses that will help you to prepare for the state exam, but make sure that they offer a valid certificate before enrolling.
