Adventure Guides are expected to juggle a myriad of tasks and daily logistics, and to exhibit initiative and resourcefulness while creating an atmosphere of fun for guests of all ages.
Adventure Guides should be able to share their curiosity about the world and enthusiasm for travel with our guests. They should appreciate the intricacies of various destinations, cultures and people, act instinctively as an ambassador to the regions they guide, and serve as a storyteller for all who join them on the adventure.
Adventure Guides should have the right balance of enthusiasm, professionalism, compassion and resourcefulness. They should be supportive, patient, timely and caring. An Adventure Guide is always focused on the guests, and intuitively knows when to add those special touches that allow for creation of magical moments for each and every guest.
