2. Virtual interview
3. Contract completion
Our training process is designed to prepare candidates for success.
A) You'll learn the route and material. Practice reciting the stories out loud, either by recording yourself or in front of friends. Walk the tour route and visit the locations in person. You will attend in person training sessions and may shadow tours. You will have four weeks to learn the material.
B) Once you can recite the stories, you will be tested by delivering a tour to our staff.
5. Onboarding. When you pass your test, you will be set up in our booking system and scheduled. Your first tour will be supervised. Once you give a successful supervised tour, you're hired!
- Candidates start to receive compensation for training after they learn the material, its delivery, pass their test, and give their first unsupervised tour.
Tour guides are expected to follow all policies and procedures, communicate with scheduling staff, and must never be late or miss a tour. Taking care of the guests is a top priority.
