Ukraine is a very fascinating country with a very rich cultural and historical background. Every city has its own story to tell, and a good private guide in Ucraina will help you get this story in all the details. Khmelnytskyi is a fine example of such a place. Being a relatively small city, it has many cultural and historical relics both within its borders and in the surrounding areas, some of which date back to the earliest periods of Kiev Russia. Let me take you to these places and you will see how rich this region really is.

Guide Licensing Information for Ukraine

Ukraine represents a very rich destination in terms of private tour possibilities since the country is so diverse and has so much to offer. However, when it comes to actual guiding services the offers can be rather scarce, especially outside the large cities. Private guides are required to carry a valid guiding license issued by the local authority that is applicable to the tours conducted in the specific area. However, there are many wild guides who don’t have a license and advertise their services via the web or local media. In many cases telling the difference between a wild and a licensed guide can be problematic, since the quality of services can be both good and bad for both types of guides.

To become a guide in Ukraine one has to be a citizen or wield a working permit of the country. There are many institutions that offer basic training and tourism, which are rather affordable by international standards. However, most experts agree that while the knowledge offered by universities and colleges is abundant, it only focuses on the theoretical aspect. In contrast, private guiding course can prove to be more useful since they offer more practical insights, but you have to make sure that they provide a valid certificate. After completing the courses you can approach the local administration to get your guiding license.
