Tourist Guides bring a destination to life for visitors, providing a personal connection to a destination's people, culture, history and future. A Tourist Guide is so much more than a book or an internet page can ever be. 

The WSQ Tourist Guide Course prepares you to become a Tourist Guide, Docent or Attractions Guide in Singapore or abroad. The course prepares participants in all key areas recognised as significant in tour guiding in Singapore. For those interested in becoming a licenced Tourist Guide in Singapore, this course is a pre-requisite to be able to take the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) Tourist Guide License assessment. Once that assessment is passed, you will be officially licenced to conduct tours in Singapore.

The WSQ Tourist Guide Course aims to equip learners with the skills and knowledge in promoting Singapore as a tourist destination. Learners will gain practical experience on writing tour commentary, conducting tours and liaising with tourists and visitors from all over the world.
