Inbound Tour Guides

Education and Training Requirements

High School

If you hope to become a tour guide, there are several high school courses you can take that will prepare you for the position and improve your chances of finding a job. Perhaps the single most valuable class is a foreign language. Tour guides who can speak a second language fluently will be in the greatest demand. Public speaking courses can also prove to be valuable as guides have to keep up a steady patter of information and engage small groups.
