The authorized professional guides who work in the Helsinki area are members of one of the two local associations, Helsinki Oppaat ry (Helsinki Guides) or Helsingfors Auktoriserade Turistguider rf. They have altogether 350 members.

For membership, the associations require the completion of one year’s guide course with oral and written final exams and a very good knowledge of at least one language apart from maternal Finnish or Swedish.
