A completely filled in profile is more efficient because:

 

    • The text is displayed not only in the service but also in the search engines. Unique descriptions are given high positions in the search results and are seen by a large number of people. It means that tourists are more likely to view your profile and to send you orders.
    • Your profile is a good self-presentation. The information about your education, interests and tours will attract the attention of customers.
    • Tourists want the communication with the guide to be informative and positive. A detailed description will help them get to know you better.

We only accept certified/professional guides and ask for proof of qualification when registering.

We offer a level of flexibility that few websites offer:

Direct contact with clients: avoid intermediaries and get the best price.

Guides have the opportunity to write their profile in several languages and to add photos.

Guides are able to set their own rates.

Amazinguides provide a personal email to contact you. Once you both are in contact, you can ask for information.

[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_toggle title=”What is a “certified tour guide” and how do I become one?

A certified tour guide is a person who has received professional training/education from a tourism institution or guiding association and is recognized by said institution or association as being able to provide accurate and informative tours to visitors. Amazinguides does not provide tour guide certification; rather, we use local or national guiding certifications to assure that a guide is knowledgeable in the area where they guide. Should you have multiple certifications, we ask for the most relevant one to the area where you’ll be providing tours.

[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_toggle title=”How do I show you that I’m a certified guide?” open_toggle_background_color=”#dae1ed” closed_toggle_background_color=”#dae1ed” icon_color=”#345168″ _builder_version=”3.6″ title_font=”Lato|700|||||||” title_line_height=”1.5em” body_font=”||||||||” body_font_size=”16px” body_line_height=”2em” border_width_all=”0px” custom_margin=”||0px|” animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”top” animation_intensity_slide=”10%”]

During the sign-up process, you will be asked to upload a photo/image of your current valid certification. We will then review and verify documentation received, and contact you if we require additional information. Your profile will not be visible to clients until your certification has been validated – this is to ensure that our clients only book with certified guides, and helps uphold the dignity of the profession.

Once your account has been created, simply click on “Profile” at the top of any page to go to your profile settings. Here you will be able to supply pertinent information that clients should know, such as your guiding specialties, languages you can guide in, a short bio about you, and a photo of yourself. Remember Amazinguides terms of use, you are not allowed to provide confidential information in this profile description.

You are paying for the guide’s certified knowledge and time. The guide may specify in one of their visits, or via email, what exactly is and included in their price. This may include entry tickets to monuments, transportation, and/or food. Please be aware that it is the guide’s choice as to what is included in their price, and be aware that you have a right to know what is and is not included in this beforehand.
