Becoming a Tour Guide was begun in 2007 as a booklet to help others and
myself that were providing trips to clubs in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
area. I was at the time a helper to a very successful trip planner and tour
guide and saw the many possible pitfalls of getting into the guide business.
This prompted me to start keeping notes about the things that worked and those
that did not, and I soon found that I had over 700 ‘notes’, each which are
included in this manual for you to use in making your tour guiding career the
best that it can be.
This manual provides much of the ‘insider’ information that has not been available to the public; it provides demographics and it questions your reasons for wanting to become a tour guide; it guides you through the costing and accounting needed to be financially viable; it shows you all the ‘niche’ opportunities that can be profitable; it included many of the laws and other regulations that need to be followed, thus keeping you out of trouble and possible lawsuits; it is the first of its kind in that it is comprehensive.
Save money; before you spend thousands on school tuition, or before you spend months sitting in a class at one of the various trade schools, you should read this manual to find out if you ‘want’ to become a ‘Tour Guide or Tour Agent’.
It may not be the best paying career in the world; but it can be the most
satisfying as you get to meet people, visit interesting places, and have the
feeling of accomplishment as you ‘educate’ people in the lands, places, history,
adventures, and ‘eye-opening’ sites that surround all of us.
There are over 700 topics in this manual
