Job description

ToursBylocals is a website that connects independent local tour guides with travellers from all around the world.

We look for motivated individuals with considerable availability to deliver high quality experiences.

Guides apply to join our team and, upon acceptance, create their own personal profile and a selection of tours for travellers to book. In exchange for covering expenses like payment processing, commissions to travel agents, and marketing, we earn a commission (20%) on each tour booking.

Our guide partners set their own tour prices, so there is no risk that our commission would impact a guide's expected earnings. This commisson is our only fee, so our own success truly relies on the success of each of our guide partners.

We work with more than 2800 independent tour guides in 153 countries. We work to support our guide partners by advertising them through our website and promoting their online profiles and tours.

We're expecting a really big growth for next season, so we're looking for licensed guides in Amsterdam who are able to deliver excellent experiences to our travellers.

Looking forward to receiving your application!
