ACIS Tour Managers are the overseas guides that are equal parts educator, logistical magician and friend. I soon learned that teacher evaluations backed up this admiration with consistently stellar marks. Here’s how the evaluations look so far for 2014 travel:
- 98% rated our tour managers overall ability good or excellent
- 96% rated the tour managers educational content good or excellent
- 98% rated the tour managers friendliness good or excellent
- 100% rated the tour managers professionalism good or excellent
- 96% rated the tour managers responsiveness to group needs good or excellent
But stats like that just don’t do them justice.
As time has gone on I’ve had the privilege of meeting many of our tour managers and, just like the Eiffel Tower, they live up to the hype. They really are charming, brilliant, travel gurus!
