Become a Sportourist guide
Are you a local guide with adequate experience or a professional expert? Are you passionate and knowledgeable about your region? Do you want to show tourists the unique places in your area and make memorable experiences while practicing your favorite outdoor sport?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be perfect for joining the Sportourist network.
Sportourist operates a careful selection of the best local Sports Guides in the area. Our job is to promote your offers to travelers looking for specialized guides to practice outdoor activities in your part of the world. We have a simple online booking system that will help you handle requests from tourists. We will coordinate the administrative aspect, so your only priority will be the implementation and improvement of your business.
Sportourist customers are tourists looking for unforgettable moments, and to do so they want to make use of accredited guides who know the area and who can offer professionalism and reliability. Our target customers are looking for new emotions, discovering new places, in the company of a local expert who can offer greater personal attention in total safety. They want to know their guide, view his/her profile, read his/her feedback and not be satisfied with an anonymous guide that any travel agency could offer.
Once you are accepted as a Sportourist accredited guide, your obligations are:
- to personally deliver the activities you have agreed to carry out in a friendly and professional manner
- to respond quickly (within 24 hours) and professionally to customer inquires and booking requests
- to keep your availability and account up to date
In return, Sportourist provides:
Tools and training: All the tools you need to create a professional web presence along with training from our support team to help you design quality outdoor experience offerings.
Easy admin: We promptly handle all customer payments to you through our order processing system. Our sophisticated calendar system allows you to control your work availability..
Marketing: Through our multiple online marketing channels (social, paid advertising and editorial), we make it easy for tourists to find your offers.
Security: Our customer cancellation policy means you are protected in the case of late-notice cancellations or 'no-show' customers.
Support: Attentive and responsive customer and guide support services.
Sportourist does not charge upfront or ongoing fees - only a percentage of actual activity bookings.

Note: Sportourist is not simply a listing service, and applying to be a Sports Guide does not guarantee acceptance. If we have too many guides offering similar activities in an area, you may be put onto a waiting list. Based on the results of our checks on your professional background, or for any other reason, we may decline your application if we believe you cannot be a successful guide. Acceptance of you as a Sports Guide is at our sole discretion.
