How to Write a Tour Guide Resume


Tour guides are needed in many industries. You could be a tour guide for a museum, a historic site or a touring company. Important personality characteristics for tour guides include being organized, friendly, helpful, patient and pleasant. Tour guides also need to be focused on customer service and making sure customers receive the very best experience possible.

  • Create an objective for your resume. Your objective should clearly state that you want to obtain a position as a tour guide.

  • Add a professional summary to your tour guide resume. This should be approximately five to eight bullet points, and it should give a brief overview of your experience as a tour guide, including how many years of experience you have and strengths you would bring to a position.

  • List your employment history. This section should contain your job title, the name of the company you worked for and dates of employment for each job you have had.

  • Add bullet points to your professional positions. Include three to five bullet points for tour guide jobs and two to three for other jobs, making sure all bullet points relate to qualifications needed to be a tour guide.

  • Start each bullet point with an actionable verb, such as "assisted," "lead," "provided" or "completed."

  • Create a section for your education. Include degrees you have earned along with the name of the school you attended and the date you graduated. You can also list any other special training you've received, such as first aid, in this section.
