Association of Licensed Tourist Guides

The Association of Licensed Tourist has 1500 members who guide in sites all over Greece and cover 28 different languages. Our members’ profession is regulated and protected by the Law, giving the right to guide in historical and cultural sites exclusively to those who have completed a 2-year education at the State School of Tourist Guides covering a wide range of knowledge from archaeology, history, religion, mythology, geology, geography, art history, folk art, environmental science, alternative forms of tourism (religion, gastronomy), tourism sustainability, guiding technique, tourist law and tourism psychology. Those fulfilling the state standards are entitled to bear the badge of licensed Tourist Guides given by the Ministry of Tourism and distinguish themselves as the authentic professional guides of our country.

Look for the Licensed Tourist Guides official badge

The Greek Law 710/1977 defines that ‘A Tourist Guide leads foreign and local visitors to the country indicating its sites, ancient and historical monuments, as well as works of art of all periods, and explains to them their history, meaning and purpose while providing overall information about ancient and modern Greece’.

Any kind of guided tour in Greece should be undertaken exclusively by those bestowed with the license of the Ministry of Tourism otherwise it is considered illegal.
