Hi, I’m Mitch.
I’m the guy behind this project.
After 18 years of tour directing, guiding locally, hiring new guides and training them, I’m starting a new project: books and online courses geared specifically to helping tour directors and guides learn destinations.
I’m also trying to create helpful connections between seasoned, knowledgeable tour directors, and new grads eager to learn cities and techniques. Our mentorship & private tour program is geared towards getting you up and running quickly.
When I was hired to do my first tour–5 countries, 15 days, and no time to prepare, I was a deer in the headlights. I panicked, and purchased every map and guidebook I could find. I survived the tour, but realized quickly that the best TDs and guides have fun, quirky and off-the-beaten-path information that isn’t found on Wikipedia or Frommer’s. It takes years to acquire, until now.
What I’m offering here is what I would’ve loved to have on that tour: Well-organized commentary books filled with only fantastic stories and fun facts. Coming soon, we’ll be offering online destination training designed to make you feel prepared for touring a place you’ve never visited. And if you prefer face-to-face individualized help, contact us to organize private mentorship and FAM tour opportunities.
Together, I hope these resources will help you succeed in your career!
