Guides are the most important part of any tour, but they rarely have representation in the larger industry where decisions, which often effect them directly, are made.
We aim to be a voice for guides where you have none, and to understand our profession’s collective goals and struggles.
Through our programming we aim to gather guides so they can forge relationships and business connections.
Guides can join our virtual community here.
We create and promote learning opportunities for guides to continually improve their craft and industry knowledge. Guides should be at the forefront, pushing for innovation as the larger travel industry evolves.
One major vehicle for this is our Flagship project, the Global Guide Summit, piloted as GuideWeek in May 2021 (with over 400 guides from around the world in attendance).
It’s back! Our annual virtual conference is once again happening in May! Whether you can join live or watch the recordings, it’ll be a powerful few days of learning and connection, which attracted over 400 guides from around the world last year.
