The Value of Certification:

SFTGG provides a rigorous process for achieving professional certification, developed over time by the many professional tour guides within the Guild. Five different geographical areas are included, from Monterey to Wine Country, and applicants are tested via both written and oral tests. Usually the process takes over two years.
