To quote Dan Williams, Austrade’s Assistant General Manager Tourism Policy, ‘’ To ensure ADS tourists receive a quality experience, inbound tour operators (ITOs) and tour guides in Australia and outbound tour operators in China are subject to a selection and monitoring process. From 1 July 2016, all ADS-approved tour guides must have one of the following: one year’s experience guiding inbound tours, a qualification in tourism or a membership with a professional tour guiding association.’’
