SCTA Urge Collaboration with Tour Guides

The Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) has invited its counterparts in different government authorities to collaborate with tourist guides who are officially licensed by SCTA in their official tourism trips inside the Kingdom, either for their affiliates or for their foreign visitors.

The president of SCTA, HRH Prince Sultan Bin Salman stated in a message sent to a number of government officials that SCTA issued 71 licenses of tour operators, after comprehensive training. These efforts mainly aim at providing distinct tourism services to domestic tourists, especially to foreign expats by the licensed tourist guides.

His Royal Highness pointed out that the request to engage accredited trip organizers is a part of protecting tourists from some individuals and authorities who are not licensed and yet practice guiding in the Kingdom, who might provide inaccurate information about the Kingdom, its heritage, and the landmarks, besides executing tourism programs without taking proper security measures into account.
