Demo Tour Availability
If you decided to be part of a Withlocals Originals tour, we will ask you to join some demo tours of the Withlocals Originals tour you have been selected to lead.
Purpose of the demo tour:
- See and learn the route from the tour manager so you can take guests yourself.
- Information exchange: share your own stories and knowledge so others can learn from one another.
- Host review: the tour manager will be sending a review of all hosts to the withlocals headquarters after to ensure your capability.
How it works:
We will ask you to join one of the tours time slots and send you details of the meeting time and point, along with the contact details of the tour manager.
You will be shown the route of the tour and all of the stories of the stops will also be shared with you. Afterwards, we will send you an itinerary of the tour in which you can contribute your own stories of the stops if you have more.
Expectations of hosts:
We will assign hosts to a tour we deem matches their knowledge and interests. Therefore we expect hosts to share and contribute their own knowledge of the tour with the group. (We aim to send the first draft of the itinerary to you before you join the demo-tour so you can be prepared.) The tour manager will also be assessing everyone in terms of their knowledge and personable skills. We ensure to verify each one of our Withlocals Originals hosts.
On some of the demo tours, there will be a photographer to capture the feel and route of the tour. Of course, this is also about the happy people enjoying the tour. Please follow the directions of the photographer as they will ask to set up some shots.
