I love the internet! I Googled “How to become a Travel Guide” and found the following information: http://www.ehow.com/how_138394_become-tour-guide.html
I learned that there is actually a school for Tour Directing, it’s very close, and only takes 15 days!!! Sounds do-able. I’m scheduled to start November 28, 2011. http://www.itmitourtraining.com
I’m so excited about the possibilities!
