How to Become a
Wales Official Tourist Guide

Membership of Wales Official Tourist Guides Association (WOTGA) is open to all who have successfully completed a 'Wales based' professional tourist guiding course that has been recognised by Welsh Government.  WOTGA courses are modular and provide the opportunity to progress from White Badge (Local Guide) level to Green Badge (Area Guide) level through to Blue Badge (National Guide) level. Courses are organised by WOTGA’s social enterprise arm, Wales Best Guides Enterprises 

Three new Green Badge courses (in North Wales, South East Wales and South West Wales) will start this autumn and also we are also liaising with some local tourism organisations about organising White Badge courses.

For more information on the forthcoming Green Badge Guide training please email our Project Manager for Training, Diana James at
