Your path to the certificate
You must attend both: the City Explorer and the Tour Guide Seminar and then take an exam.
Ideally, you register for both seminars at the same time. These seminars are optimally coordinated in terms of content and time. In this occasion you can get your certificate already within 8 months of training. If you are not sure yet if you would like to take up the profession or if you would like to spread the time or financial resources over a longer period of time, or if you would like to practice your German first, you can also register for the City Explorer Seminar first and take the Tour Guide Seminar the subsequent year.
On the other hand, if you are already a city guide with many years of professional experience in Berlin, you may, under certain circumstances, only visit the Tour Guide Seminar. In this case, please contact us by phone or email.
You can arrange the date for the final exam individually after completing the Tour Guide Seminar. The exam can also be done in English. The examination fee is a one-time charge of € 190 incl. VAT.
