I need a tour guide!

The PTGAA has a free service, Find-A-Guide, on our website which allows you to choose, contact and negotiate directly with any of our members across Australia.

However, sometimes you need more than that or you are short of time – you need a Tour Guide Campaign.

A Tour Guide Campaign consists of:

  • Putting your assignment on our Jobs Board (PTGAA website)
  • Putting your assignment on our Facebook page
  • Sending out targeted emails / text messages for any specific requirement (e.g. you want a Mandarin-speaking guide or a guide in Brisbane / Gold Coast etc).
  • Putting your assignment at the top of page one in the next Toursapalooza, our fortnightly eBulletin.

The PTGAA doesnt recommend any guide over another, nor are we an agency – we merely advertise, as fully as possible, to our members and it is up to the organisation seeking the guide/s to do the filtering/interviewing.

The cost of each Tour Guide Campaign is:

PTGAA Corporate members or PTGAA Industry (Organisation) members: FREE and unlimited

PTGAA Members: $80

Non-Members: $120

To get your campaign underway submit the on-line form below and we will contact you regarding payment.

We are aware that sometimes assignments are vague but please fill out as much detail as possible.
