WHY BECOME A TOUR GUIDE?
Becoming a tour guide is one of the most rewarding and exhilarating ways to see the world, learn about a country’s culture and history while sharing your love of travel with people just like you.
Here are some reasons why.
LEARN TRANSFERABLE SKILLS
Being a tour guide or local expert is amazing! But, and there is a but right form the off, a tour guide also wears many “hats” during a normal day at work. A tour guide is not only ensuring the guests have an amazing time but he/she is also their travel agent, therapist, personal organiser, crisis manager, health inspector and more…
All those things take place, almost passively, in a tour guides’ head and mind.
And all skills which carry across impressively to any future career.
LEARN EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR CITY OR REGION
Your job as a tour guide is varied – even if you only did the same tour each day, people change, things happen, questions differ…
Chances are though, that you will very rarely do exactly the same tour each day. Tour guiding is a fantastic way to see your city or region differently, learn all there is if you wish (or simply become an expert in a field you love) and wander into areas of the region you may not have come across so often.
In short, tour guiding is enlightening and hugely enjoyable from all aspects. And we’re not talking boring old history teacher studying & knowledge – think researching the funniest stories of a royal family or the perfect recipe for goulash to share with your groups.
A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
When you work in the travel industry, all your guide colleagues are as crazy about travel and their region as you are!
You will be surrounded by like-minded people who understand and encourage your need to #sharethelove for your city. And you can bounce off some great ideas off one another.
If this sounds interesting, why not meet some tour guides, enjoy a short session on what it means to be one and join our open day in Liverpool at the Hard Days Night Hotel on 25 January 2022 between 10:00h – 15:00h.
