We brought certified virtual tour guides to 12 countries
Online live course to become certified virtual tour guide is running for the 4th week in a row and so far, tour guides from 12 countries and 22 different destinations decided to say yes to the future of travel and tourism industry and attended the course.
We are well aware how big of an impact the current situation has on the profession of tourist guides worldwide. This is why G-Guides Academy formed this online live course to become a certified virtual tour guide, where tour guides worldwide can learn new skills that they need when they want to conduct the tours virtually and reach a big audience of tourists, who cannot travel, but still want to hear great stories from around the world.
After the 5 day course, they have a set of skills, that they can use immediately and start guiding online. The course starts every Monday and runs until Friday.
This transformational learning experience is empowering tour guides to be able to keep their livelihoods, to keep creating meaningful connections with travelers around the world and to keep supporting local economy with their work.
So far, we have empowered tour guides from Greece, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Norway, Estonia, Spain, Italy, Serbia, Slovakia, Germany and Italy.
We are very happy and proud to be able to already see our certified virtual tour guides conducting their tours and using the knowledge in practice. Some of them decided to guide the tours in virtual museums and art galleries, some of them we see guiding in nature and some of them showing their town through video or live streamed city tours. We can also listen to inspiring culture talks that they are creating to share their heritage and share their knowledge.
