View Full Version : working as a tourist guide/advice needed

Hello! Is there anyone here working as a tourist guide?
How to start? What should be done to find such a job? What courses for guides would you recommend? I have higher linguistic education, speak English and German and have some translator experience. Could anyone help with advice? :confused:

I have no idea how to get employed in such capacity, but as they say, before asking something, think what would happen if your wish is granted. To my humble opinion tour guides here are not paid very handsomely, my advice is to check their earnings potential, then decide if that meets your salary expectations. Good luck anyway.

Hi, Vanross! Thank you for the advice :)
true, that's not the best paid job, but it has other positive aspects
but actually i'm here because i'd like to learn more about this kind of work, and i'd be very grateful to anyone willing to share personal experience
i don't know if i'm gonna get any answers, though :)
