Question/Topic: Does the State of Florida require that tour guides (or other people who guide) have licenses? If so, where and how do they apply for them? 
Answer/Pointer: The Florida Statutes refers to tour guides as "sellers of travel." "Seller of travel" means any resident or nonresident person, firm, corporation, or business entity who offers for sale, directly or indirectly, at wholesale or retail, prearranged travel, tourist-related services, or tour-guide services for individuals or groups, including, but not limited to, vacation or tour packages, or vacation certificates in exchange for a fee, commission, or other valuable consideration." Please refer to Title XXXIII (REGULATION OF TRADE, COMMERCE, INVESTMENTS, AND SOLICITATIONS), Chapter 559 (Regulation of Trade, Commerce, and Investments, Generally), PART XI (SELLERS OF TRAVEL) for the requirements for sellers of travel. The statutes are available online at Select 1999 Florida Statutes (Full Volume). Select Chapter 559, then Part XI.
