"The District [of Columbia] makes it illegal for anyone to work as a 'sightseeing guide' without first passing a test and obtaining a special government license"

New regulations promulgated in July make clear what that means: It is illegal to “describe ... any place or point of interest in the District to any person” on a tour without a license. Scofflaws who engage in unauthorized description can be thrown in jail for up to three months.
