Working As A Sydney Tour Guide

Working As A Sydney Tour Guide

If you enjoy working with people and love your city, a job as a Sydney tour guide may be perfect for you. There are no formal qualifications to be a tour guide, although you’ll need to be outgoing, personable and reasonably fit. Having a clear speaking voice is a must, and being able to communicate effectively with people from all over the worked will be important too. Of course, a knowledge of the city is a must too, not just the well known sites, but the culture, history and geography of Sydney too. Some tours take in the main Sydney sights, while others specialize in a specific area such as the Rocks or Kings Cross, or focus on local cuisine or a particular aspect of history. You’ll need to be well organized and keep up with opening hours, traffic, construction and anything else that may affect a tour.
