Education And Training

Depending on the type of service, tour guides will need some training. If you are conducting tours in another country, for example, some language skills will be beneficial to you. The best way to become a member of this industry is to work at it while you are in school. Many companies offer summer employment opportunities for high school students. Some are domestic (within North America), and some may require travel overseas. Regardless of the location, the experience will be a great help when trying to land a part- or full-time tour guide job after school. For now, learn as much about food and its history as possible, and brush up on your geography and public-speaking skills.
