After lawsuit, difficulty in tracking if uncertified guides are giving Charleston tours

Since Charleston shifted its tour guide testing from “mandatory” to “voluntary,” keeping track of who is giving tours has become more complicated.

The change was prompted when U.S. District Court Judge David Norton ruled in August that Charleston’s mandatory tour guide testing policy violated free speech rights.

A business license is still required to give tours, but the licensing office does not make note of whether a person is a certified guide. A license may also be under a corporate name, not an individual’s name, and that business may legally hire guides that have not passed the city’s exam.
