  • Impressed customers and guests may provide your business with positive feedback.

  • And they must be covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance to the value of minimum $10m (most have insurance to $20m).
  • With a professional tour guide, your business can enjoy peace of mind, knowing your guests are in capable and safe hands.

A great guide is worth their weight in gold!
