Can I use a self-employed tour guide in China?
Just a kindly reminder:
Independent tour guides trading with tourists directly is illegal in China. In China, a licensed tour guide must be employed by a tour company. To establish an inbound and outbound tour company in China, people are obliged to deposit a compensation sum of over one million yuan to China National Tourism Administration as obligatory deposit fund used for possible poor service or harm done to the tourists caused by the tour company.
For the original documentation of the Regulation on Travel Agencies in China, which was adopted at the 47th executive meeting of the State Council on January 21, 2009, promulgated and came into force on May 1, 2009 and signed by Premier Wen Jiabao, please check out the link - the Regulation on Travel Agencies in China ( Chinese version ).
A money-oriented tour guide directly trading with the tourists is a kind of illegal travel business. Because a tour guide is not a legal entity, unable to hold responsibility for the tourists.
After all, travel business is fairly a risky business involved with the life of the tourists.
The existence of a self-employed tour guide doesn't prove it is legal in China.
A bad thing never dies.
For the official documentation about the regulation on tour guide in China, please check out the link - the Regulation on Tour Guide in China ( Chinese version ).
Kindly remind you of the Rule No.9 of the official regulation:
A tour guide must be designated by a tour company for offering tour guide service.
A tour guide is forbidden to be covertly and directly engaged in any tour guide service by any ways or means.
So avoid using self-employed tour guides, keep from illegal "black" tour guides though they may offer much cheaper tour guide service directly. Pay a little more for safety by locating a legitimate tour operator for licensed and legal tour guides.
More information about tour guides in China:
Responsibility on the part of a tour guide
Tour guides are responsible for conducting tours and expeditions organized by tour operators for which they work. They take the tours of historical places, famous buildings, natural landscape, temples and theme parks. In the course of the tours, tour and travel guides describe points of interest, answer questions and offer background information on interesting attractions. Tour guides are usually employed by tour operators.
How to become a licensed tour guide in China?
In China, to be a licensed tour guide, you must attend the annual national tour guide certificate examination sponsored by our China National Tourism Administation. If you pass the examination, you will get the tour guide certificate from the tourism authorities concerned. In addition, to be a legal tour guide, you have to register at a travel agency or local tour guide management company. Most of the tour guide management companies have some official background. After your registration, you will get a tour guide IC card ( or tour guide offcial permit ) from the local tourism administration. Tour guides are requested to hang their IC card around their necks when they escort touists.
How to recognize a licensed and legal tour guide?
A licensed and legal tour guide should have two things - IC card and formal reception plan from the travel agency for which she or he works.
A formal reception plan is actually a travel plan or tour confirmation between a travel agency and the tourists.
How to recognize a freelance tour guide?
A freelance tour guide is a tour guide who doesn't only work for one registered travel agency. They jump from one travel agency to another. They are not tied to only one travel agency, something like a guerrilla! A freelance tour guide is a licensed and legal tour guide. So they also have two things: tour guide IC card and travel plan from a travel agency.
How to recognize a self-employed tour guide?
If a licensed tour guide directly organize a tour and also conduct the tour, she or he is a self-employed tour guide. A self-employed guide is also a licensed and registered tour guide. But they don't work for their registered tour operators or tour guide management companies. They work for themselves covertly and contact the potential clients by using some low-cost sales channels like web forums, phone calls, direct encounter at some scenic areas. Some self-employed tour guides even make a simple travel website and contact the internet travellers directly! We kindly suggest you avoid using a self-employed tour guide. It is not safe to put yourself in the hand of a single self-employed tour and travel guide. It is against Chins's law.
How to recognize an illegal tour guide?
It is quite easy to tell an illegal tour guide. An illegal tour guide has neither IC card nor travel plan from a travel agency. They, just like self-employed tour guides, touch the tourists directly by using some low-cost sales channels like web forums, phone calls, direct encounter at some scenic areas. Some trendy illegal tour guides also make a simple travel website and contact the internet travellers directly! You are kindly advised not to use their services even though their service charges are much lower maybe. To put yourself in the hand of an illegal tour guide is dangerours!
So avoid using self-employed tour guides, keep from illegal tour guides. Pay a little more for safety by locating a legitimate tour operator for licensed and legal tour guides.
