Tourism Minister Michel Pharaon distributed certificates Tuesday to 18 female Russian tour guides graduating from the governmental tourism program, the first wave of women to join a new initiative targeting tourists from Russia in line with an expected increase this year.According to the ministry's Director-General Nada Sardouk, the program requires three months of training in various cultural, historic, and touristic cites across Lebanon. Similarly, Sardouk said Russian travel agencies visiting cultural and historic sites in Lebanon earlier this week expressed great satisfaction with the guides provided and assured the ministry that they would work to place Lebanon on Russia's tourism map.
