Training

New tour guides are trained by the tour staff in a sequence of tours.  A training packet is provided prior to the first training tour and includes the tour route, general information about the position, as well as supplemental information.  It is the tour guides responsibility to read the packet prior to the first training tour.  Training is paid. 

  • On the first training tour, the new tour guide accompanies and observes a veteran tour guide.

  • On the second training tour. The new tour guide gives at least half of the tour, after which the veteran tour guide will provide feedback to prepare them for the final tour.

  • On the third training tour, the new tour guide gives the entire tour themselves, while observed by a veteran tour guide and the tour guide coordinator.

  • A quiz is given after training is complete to test knowledge of the training packet and the tour.
