Why Take This Course?
The increase in foreign tourists choosing to spend their holidays on cruise ships has led to a demand for a higher number of tour guides. This, together with the current exchange rate, has made the UK especially attractive.
What Does the Course Entail?
This course was devised to meet the demand for more tour guides. It is designed specifically for the cruise industry in order to address the unique needs and circumstances of cruise tour guides. Our goal is to train new guides to the highest standards so that future visitors can enjoy a positive shore excursion, while also ensuring fair compensation for the guide. This course is also suitable for guides serving visiting bus and coach companies, as well as for guides leading walking tours.
What Kind of Accreditation Will I Receive?
After successful completion of the programme and upon passing the final examination, you will be awarded International Certification in Tour Guide Excellence from Aquila’s Centre for Cruise Excellence, which includes a Certificate of Achievement and lapel pin for each guide. You will also receive a certificate from Devon & Cornwall Tour Guides for the tours studied during the course with the aim of ongoing professional development.
