But often our impressions of the foreign country are affected by the people who introduce us to it – local guide. The more knowledgeable and trust-worthy is the guide the better your vacation will be. Sometimes it happens that tourists come across unprincipled guides who are interested primarily in making more money. In this case there is no guarantee that tourists are safe in such a company. In order to eliminate such cases the members of the Ministry of Tourism of South Korea impose certain rules and regulations over guiding activity.

Only licensed guides are allowed to work in this sphere. In order to get a license all the guides-to-be have to study for a certain period of time and then pass an examination.
