To become an Urban Adventures Partner, applicants must have the inside scoop on their city’s hidden gems, be passionate about showing travellers the very best their city has to offer, committed to the principles of responsible travel, and have the entrepreneurial spirit required to operate a tour business. In some cities, the applicant will also need a license to guide tourists.
“A background in tour guiding is not an essential requirement to become an Urban Adventures Partner,” said Tony Carne, Urban Adventures’ General Manager. “You might be an artist, musician, actor, blogger, retail worker, foodie, bartender, server, customer service rep, concierge or something else entirely, but if you’ve got the know-how about your city, and the passion and drive to build a profitable business, we’ll offer you the sales, marketing and distribution support of a global brand, and the chance to become part of a network of like-minded tour professionals that operates right across the world,” Carne added.
