Guide Licensing Information


Turkey is known as a richly historical land that boasts some of the best cuisine one will ever taste. It combines breath-taking white-sand landscapes and marvelous sceneries of soaring mountains. The Turks are considered to be an extremely hospitable nation, and frankly speaking, sometimes their hospitality borders with obtrusiveness.

Turkey literally abounds in historical monuments and landmarks so as soon as you set foot in this remarkable country you should know that you are following in the wake of some significant historical figures. No wonder the Turks are so proud of their cultural heritage and always eager to shed some light to some historical events that took place on their beloved motherland. In some sense Turkey is truly unique – it is located at the meeting point of Europe and Asia, thus being under influence of both continents.

You will find it easy to immense yourself in that luring Turkish atmosphere, seeing as places of interest in Turkey are found around almost every corner. It doesn’t matter what you are doing – soaking in an Ottoman hamam, tasting influences brought along the Silk Road, eating kebap or visiting the ancient ruins – you will enjoy the shade of unique Turkish delight.

Guide Licensing Information for Turkey

Turkey is certainly one of those countries that have a lot to offer to travelers in terms of sightseeing and private tours. That’s why there are very many private guides offering their services to travellers from all over the globe. Individual guides aren’t as widespread as those working with travel companies, since the large bulk of services is rendered to vacation package tourists who are concentrated on the Mediterranean coast.

In order to conduct any group tours in Turkey the guide is obliged to carry a guide license, which is issued by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Foreign citizens can obtain such a license only by receiving a long-term working visa in Turkey. There are many courses aimed at training tour guides all over the country, but they are mostly concentrated in the western part, specifically the popular tourist destinations. The courses train future guides in local history, culture, economy and other topics that are important for successful guiding activities. After completing the courses, the solicitor has to pass the state exam with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in order to get a valid license. The license offers many advantages, including no-line ticket purchase for the guided group, which can prove to be invaluable in the most popular tourist sites.
