Helping you find a career as a Tour manager

If you’re charismatic and love to travel being a tour manager could be the perfect role for you! Tour managers supervise and guide holidaymakers to ensure they stay safe, happy and entertained.

What does a Tour manager do?
Tour managers develop a good knowledge of the areas they tour so they can keep their tourists interested all along the tour route.
  • Guide and entertain tourists

  • Develop specialised knowledge of your routes

  • Make bookings e.g. hotels and car hire

  • Welcome holiday makers

  • Check tickets

  • Ensure everything runs smoothly

  • Liaise with hotels and travel companies

Beyond the role of a tour guide, managers also book all the necessary parts of a tour, e.g. cars and hotels, as well as overseeing the smooth running of the tour.

You’ll also have to be ready to deal with emergencies. If someone becomes ill or has an accident during the trip you may be in charge of supervising safety measures.
