Warsaw Guide Training Tell a good story

The Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society’s (PTTK) Warsaw Branch of Guides, the oldest and largest organization for tour guides’ training, will organize a Warsaw Guide Training this year.

For the first time ever this course will be taught in English. We decided to open our doors to Warsaw lovers who cannot receive a guide license because they don’t speak Polish.

The training is a great opportunity to fall more deeply in love with the Polish capital and learn more about Polish history and city infrastructure.

During the course participants will study the following:

Guiding skills – communication and presentation skills for guiding on foot, on site and from a moving vehicle

Background knowledge - wide historical and cultural background to Poland

Warsaw knowledge – in-depth knowledge of the capital

Regional knowledge – covering sites and locations frequently visited from Warsaw (Mazowsze)

Business and legal skills – learning to work as a self-employed guide

Course structure:


There is one evening lecture per week. It will take place in central Warsaw (Al. Jerozolimskie 51/16, next to Metro Centrum and the Central Railway Station), usually on Fridays at 17.30 –21.00.

Skills training:

There are skills training sessions and visits on weekends. They will take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 9.30 – 13.30.

Final exam:

There will be a written and oral exam at the end of the course. It will take place on the last weekend of the course. The first day of the exam will consist of a written test and an oral exam. The skills test (exercises in the city and on a bus) will be held on the second day. Once you pass the final exam you will be able to submit PTTK examinations (which is an external exam).

This all take about 200 hours of training.

The course starts on Friday, 12 October 2018 and will end in April 2019.

The fee for the course is 2900 PLN (in installments).

All tutors are highly qualified guides with extensive experience and an academic degree.

Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society Branch of Warsaw Guides organize courses since 1946!
