Become a Tour Guide

Want to get paid to travel the world? Why not become a Tour Guide!

Imagine wanting to travel the world but not having the funds to do it, then imagine hearing about a job that would actually pay you to do it. However there’s one big problem: that you don’t have the expertise required or information on what it takes to become a tour guide.

You can get work as a Tour Guide and also travel free by becoming a Tour Guide today!

I’m so frustrated in my life!” – Mark , a friend said to me.

Sound familiar?

That’s exactly what happened to my friend Mark. He’s a great guy and also has the perfect personality to become a Tour Guide and he spent heaps of time searching, applying for and going to interviews only to find that he did not have the right skills to get the job.

He spent tons of time and effort, but he lacked one thing… THE KNOWLEDGE to become a Tour Guide.

How many of us have attended an interview only to find that we are totally unprepared for the questions we are asked? Our self confidence really takes a beating. Or worse still, gone into a job where we feel completely out of our depth to deal with the situations that arise? This is made 10 times worse when you are alone in the middle of the desert or remote jungle with a bunch of tourists looking to you for the solutions. Lesson: NEVER go into an interview unprepared!

Before I taught Mark he went to interviews and he thought his enthusiasm for the job would carry him through, and he even read some travel books to be better informed about some popular tour destinations, but it still was not enough to get any of these jobs so he could become a tour guide.

I went on to explain what employers are looking for in a tour guide and what it takes to become a tour guide. Qualities like people handling skills, organisational ability, appropriate appearance, problem solving skills, public speaking skills, the ability to handle officialdom and information skills.

How to help?

I outlined some of the qualities of a great tour guide such as communication skills (especially listening and public speaking), being aware of safety issues, patience, tolerance, humor, genuinely liking people and a positive attitude (especially in the face of setbacks).

He came to me desperate for help so I shared with him my knowledge gained over years working as a tour guide.

With my help Mark went to the interviews fully prepared to deal with any questions that were fired at him and within 4 weeks he had 3 job offers that he could choose from. With my experience as a teacher and a trainer it took just 19 hours to get him ready to become a tour guide.

When he chose the job offer that excited him the most, he was able to hit the ground running with all the knowledge I passed on to him to become a tour guide.

Since then…

I have partnered up with Susan Elnadi, who is a Travel & Tourism Lecturer/Trainer in Sydney, Australia. Susan became a tour guide in Europe at the age of 23 and fell in love with not only guiding but planet earth. Her passion and enthusiasm allowed her to work in projects for the UN and after many years she decided to pass on her years of knowledge to teach others about the beauty the world has to offer and specifically tourism.

We have come together to put together a Tour Guide Course that students actually learn and enjoy doing! We want to prepare you for the things that we had to learn the hard way.

Now you can learn how to become a tour guide from our years of experience in an easy and comprehensive course that doesn’t take forever to do and you too can take advantage of our experience and knowledge to get the job you want. Start your journey here…..
