Requirements: We are a private tour company based in San Francisco, California. We offer daily private and VIP guided tours to Northern California top sights and attractions. We are looking for local, reliable, disciplined, available, knowledgeable and energetic local driver-tour guides in San Francisco
English, Spanish, French and Portuguese-speaking tour guides are our top priority, however, Japanese, Chinese and Italian speaking tour guides are welcome to apply as well. Only tour guides who live within San Francisco and the Bay Area can apply. All other irrelevant applications and enquiries from other locations will be disregarded. Many of our tours require walking and hiking so candidates must be physically fit.
A clean driving record and good driving skills are required. Tour guides must also be knowledgeable (driving and guiding at the same time), leading guided tours to all Northern California state/national parks like Yosemite, Big Sur/ Monterey, Redwoods, Wine Country, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Marin County.
Freedom: You are empowered to make your own decisions, design the trip itinerary as you see fit and bring your passion to work.
Ability to grow: We provide amazing opportunities for our tour guides to grow, become part of our management team and be part of something bigger than yourself.
We are different: We are more than just a local tour company. We combine innovative travel ideas that transcend travel and ultimately change our customers’ lives and yours as well.
Compensation and Benefits: Up to $20+/Hour + generous gratuities + bonuses+ other benefits. This may increase with seniority and is based on performance. The longer you stay with us this the better.
-Unlike other tour companies; we only deal with Private and VIP clients: One pick-up/drop-off and more generous tips. Most of our private tours are conducted by luxury SUVs but also by 15-passenger vans (a CDL is not required but a bonus). We are looking for tour guides with good driving skills who are not just drivers.
-Wages are paid by the hour not by the trip, unlike many other companies. We pay for overtime + double time, even when you are free for hours waiting for customers during any of your private tours. We also pay wages even if the pick-up location is far from our office location in San Francisco.
-Job Type: Part-time and seasonal. Excellent tour guides who are reliable and available for work when needed, and meet our needs, can get more work based and good performance.
Required languages: English, Spanish, French and Portuguese Speaking Tour Guides are needed, however, Japanese, Chinese and Italian speaking tour guides are welcome to apply as well.
Location: Only tour guides who live within San Francisco and the Bay Area can apply, all other irrelevant applications and inquiries from other locations will be disregarded.
Common mistake to avoid: Many apply out of curiosity, but they don’t know that they don’t have what it takes to be a professional tour guide and driver. Please save your time and ours and don’t apply unless you are a serious and committed tour guide.
• Please do not call as we cannot handle all incoming telephone calls from candidates! You must send your cover letter and resume via email to: email@example.com
• After we check your references and work history, we will contact you if you are a good fit for this particular job. All irrelevant profiles and emails will be deleted.
• This job is ideal for energetic tour guides who love hiking in the mountains. It requires excellent physical condition, 100% flexibility and availability as needed, as well as driving and traveling overnight far from the Bay Area. If you live outside of San Francisco, please take into consideration the rush hour and consider this before applying as our office is close to Ocean Beach.
• Also, as a small business, we don’t have time to waste on training and investing in a new candidate who will not stay with us for at least 2 or 3 years.
