You should start by registering a tour guide account. Prior tour-guiding experience is not required. In some cities, you may be required to obtain a tour guide license - please check with your local government about the requirement. Other than that, if you have an open-minded, friendly personality and good communication skills, you stand a good chance of becoming a great tour guide!
Once you create a tour guide account, you can proceed to entering your tours covering the sightseeing, food, nightlife, street art or any other topic imaginable so as to highlight the best of what your much loved city has to offer. These tours can fall into two categories:
Type 2: Fee-based Tour. You set a fixed price for your tour. The price may be per tour, per person, per day or per hour.
Your tour(s) will be promoted on the GPSmyCity website and mobile apps. Interested traveler will contact you by completing a “Contact This Guide” form on the GPSmyCity website or app, and the traveler information (name, email, phone number, country of origin, group size, etc.), along with any questions or requests from the client, will be forwarded to you by email. Each such email is considered one customer lead regardless of whether it includes a single traveler or a group of people.
Upon receiving the guest information from GPSmyCity, you can contact the traveler directly to answer their questions, arrange booking/payment, etc. We believe that tour guides have the best chance to make a booking if they can communicate directly to a client, therefore we will send you the traveler information and not act as a middleman in the process.
Once the booking is confirmed (and the advance payment received), your next task is to meet your guests and have the tour on the scheduled date. That will be the time to showcase the city you are so proud of and tell its story to the world.
Promoting your free tours on GPSmyCity is completely FREE of charge, so don't hesitate to register a tour guide account now and start promoting your tours – it does not cost you a penny!
Tour guide is charged on a Pay Per Lead (PPL) basis for paid tours only. Each time a traveler completes the “Contact This Guide” form, whether the client is traveling alone or in a group, it is considered a single customer lead. After you receive the lead by email and accept it, a small fee will be deducted from your account balance. For a cost of US$100 you receive 25 customer leads, at $4 per lead.
Exclusive customer lead. If a traveler completes the “Contact This Guide” form on the page of one of your tours, this traveler's information will be sent to you only. We will not send this traveler's information to any other guides offering similar tours.
Ability to accept or reject a lead. You may reject a customer lead sent to you for whatever reason and not be charged for it. You pay only for the customer leads you accept.
Here are some of the advantages of our Pay Per Lead (PPL) advertising offering:
No Risk Free Trial. For a limited time, after you register a tour guide account, you will get $40 advertising credit which allows you to receive 10 customer leads for your paid tours free of charge. If you are not satisfied with the results, you have no obligation to continue.
