How to Be an Award-Winning Tour Guide
Here's what Professor Ross Dowling, OAM PhD GAICDm Associate Head, School of Business at Edith Cowan University & highly reputable Australian tourism guru has to say about it:
“The book is an excellent practical introduction to the world of tour guiding. Written by two acknowledged leaders in the field, it is a must read for anyone interested in becoming a guide. It also is a great resource for established tour guides who are seeking to learn more about their profession and how to become an even better guide. It covers all aspects of tour guiding in an easy to follow practical format supported by photos taken on their own tours. I commend the book and recommend it with confidence.”
And Ryan Mossny of Two Feet & A Heartbeat Tours, winner of the 2015 Trip Advisor Excellence Award amongst numerous other accolades, gives this glowing recommendation:
"Global Gypsies have nailed it with ‘How to be an Award-Winning Tour Guide’! It's comprehensive, entertaining & full of great advice."
Global Gypsies was established in 1997 and runs tours to outback Australia and exotic destinations overseas as well as offering training courses in four-wheel-driving, towing and, of course, tour guiding. We wrote How to Be an Award-Winning Tour Guide to share our knowledge and experience with those who can’t attend a tour-guide training course in person. We believe it can help transform guiding skills from basic to brilliant and help open new doors to one of the world’s most exciting professions.
