Inbound Tour Guides

Advancement Prospects

Most guides begin their careers working part time on one-day tours. Until they master the itinerary and information, they often conduct tours with experienced guides. Career advancement can take the form of leading more complicated tours or of specializing in a certain type of tour or destination. Guides who are good at their work often build up a following of repeat customers who sign up for their tours. These popular guides may then be able to move to a higher-paying tour company. Some choose to open agencies of their own.
