Love the idea of escaping your office cubicle and travelling the world? You can do that! Become a tour guide and share your unique experiences, trot across the globe and earn too! Here are 5 best reasons why being a Tour Guide is possibly one of the best jobs in the world.
Friends All Over The World
As a local tour guide you’ll get to meet people from all over the world. That means getting ample opportunities for networking and making friends all across the globe. So when you go backpacking the next time to France, Australia or Spain you’ll have local friends to show you all the places around. Isn’t that a great way to travel more?
Happy Work Space & Fun Colleagues
Vacation means having the best time and the best memories with your folks. And for a tour guide, it means being part of someone’s happy memories where you are required to have fun for a living while travelling.
What’s more? While most of your friends doing a 9 to 5 desk job get insanely jealous of your life, you’ll get to meet colleagues who understand your wanderlust obsession and love to talk about different cultures, heritage and history.
Learn And Earn
At times you may not know everything, but as tour guide it’s always important to go that extra mile and find out more of what your tourists may be interested in. To be truly the best you can’t be a boring old history teacher. So apart from having sound knowledge about historical milestones and architectural styles you need to learn languages and know popular places to drink eat and party too. That’s how you’ll score big as a tour guide!
Knowing a place in and out means knowing all popular places around with insider tips to get the best possible price on meals and drinks. So by the end of the guiding season you’ll save enough cash for your trips around the globe.
Become An Expert
You are your visitor’s currency expert, historian, therapist, itinerary manager, public speaker and ticket organiser. All this will require you to have expertise in your core competency areas, good communication skills and a charismatic character.
And all these irreplaceable skills can lead you to an impressive future not only as a tour guide but in any possible career you choose.
