The Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington, D.C. is a non-profit organization of over 500 members. Nearly 400 Guild members are professional tourist guides licensed by the District of Columbia Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.

Guides are highly educated individuals from varied backgrounds who have experience conducting tours for visitors from all over the world. Our members provide a variety of tours in the Washington metropolitan area, including city highlight tours, walking tours, specialty tours and foreign-language tours in at least 16 languages. Most Guild guides are independent contractors; you can hire guides through the Guild website: www.washingtondctourguides.com. On the opening page of the site, click on HIRE A TOUR GUIDE and then complete a HireGuides4DC form. The Guild itself does not operate tours; our members do.

If you need not only a guide but comprehensive services (especially necessary for large groups), the website offers details about Affiliate member tour companies which can help you plan your visit and make other arrangements such as hotel, motor coach, meals, and site ticketing. These Affiliate members businesses in the travel and tourism industry routinely hire tourist guides. Guild Friend members are organizations such as hotels, restaurants, museums and government agencies, which support the objectives of the Guild. Their information is available through our website too.
