Professional Chicago Tour Guides
We accept tour guide applications on a rolling basis. Our tours operate year-round so you must have flexible availability all year, including Saturdays and some weekdays. This job is perfect for freelancers and adjunct teachers. The best way to be able to articulate your qualifications is to come on a tour for yourself.. We recommend attending the Loop Interior Architecture Tour before applying. Then if you are invited to an interview, we will refund the value of your ticket in gratitude for your time.
Background in tourism not required — teaching experience is more important. While most tour companies use volunteer or docent guides, we pay our professional tour guides for their expertise and hard work. We do not hire entertainers and actors – rather we look for fun and enthusiasm in addition to knowledge in the tour guides for our architectural and historical tours.
