a tour guide?
Being a foodie-type is great, but that's just one part of the job.
You need to love London and know the city really well. Ideally, you'll have lived in London for years. You'll geek out about learning new stuff about the city and be excited to share the capital's history.
There's a script to learn for each tour, but once you've got a handle on the stories, you can make them your own.
You'll be a people person, who is great at listening and who can speak to anyone and everyone. We need to make our customers feel welcome from the start.
Timekeeping is super-important. We are never, ever late. And you need to be able to keep to a schedule to hit the food stops at the right time.
Being able to think on your feet and use your initiative is pretty vital too. Say there's been a power cut at one of the restaurants, you'll need to keep the tour running smoothly (That's never happened by the way. But if it did, Eddie will always be on the end of the phone ready to help).
Our mission has always been to give our customers such a great time that they can't help but tell their friends about it.
That's the job. Up for it?
How we train our tour guides
First off, you come along on a tour to experience what it's like.
Then you get the script to learn and join one of our guides for a few tours. Each time you'll take over more responsibility.
Then if/when we think you're ready, you'll take the lead and go it alone.
Our kind of person
We run regular tours at the weekend and private tours any day and time of the week.
So we're looking for people who can be free weekdays, evenings and weekends. That's why most of our guides are actors, comedians and freelancers. The tours fit around their other jobs.
No two weeks are the same and you don't need to sign up to certain days of the week.
If you want to apply
Drop as an email and tell us:
- a bit about who you are
- why you think you'd make a good tour guide
- what sort of availability you have
- your favourite fact about London.
And we'll get in touch.
In the meantime, follow us on social media to see what we're up to.
