Benefits after passing our tour guide course
Our tour guide training courses address the tour guiding requirements or international travellers. We’ll show you what appeals to Western visitors, which tours they will buy, and which tours they won’t. Travellers who traveled with you will write tour guide reviews about your tour guide services. The way you make them feel results in excellent, or devastating, reviews!
EastguidesWest has many years’ combined experience in tour guide training, professional travel, hospitality, and tour operator consultancy. We have developed unique, specialist training for you.
Our tour guide trainers are working as tour directors themselves. They have international certification from the International Tour Management Institute in California, one of the best tour guide training programs in the world.
Two experienced tour guide trainers will give you first-hand tour director insights based on real tour guide job situations. The trainers combine professional tour guiding and private travelling experiences into a comprehensive tour guide course. We focus on expectations of Western tourists and tour operators.

“No fluff at all!”
Impressive presentation skills, very relatable and easy to understand in places like Kazakhstan where attendees need simpler English to fully comprehend the material. A bit of usefulness every hour; no fluff at all! I admired how a nice and effective approach to co-hosting a training can yield a great experience for the participants. I will incorporate the tips into my practice immediately.
I and a group of local guides of Kyrgyzstan participated in 3 day training organized by East Guides West in Bishkek in November 2017. Barnaby Davies and Sjannie Hulsman-Louwers gave us very detailed information about service excellence steps, basics of intercultural communication, devised solutions to clients issues etc. This kind of information is not normally taught at local courses which makes it so interesting and necessary.
I would like also to note HOW was the training held: 2 trainers with different manner of presenting and different experience but promoting the same ideas and loving so much their job – real professionals! This was a wonderful experience that i would like to extend for sure and would recommend to all my colleagues!
You are great experienced trainers. Detailed itinerary, and being honest towards guests influenced me most. It is a key aspect to do business. It worth it for me to come to your training. It is nice to meet professional guides, who have shared their experience with us. I hope it not a last training in which I am participating.
