Tour Leaders

Share

Thank you for your interest in Nepal Journeys. We are committed to a philosophy we call Journey beyond the ordinary team. Our tour leaders embody our commitment in the most fundamental way–while traveling through our respective destinations with our clients, facilitating the type of cultural immersion that creates the trip of a lifetime for our travelers.

Destination knowledge
Seven star trekking and expedition has outstanding reputation as specialists in Asia and the Pacific region. This requires a deep knowledge of the destination’s culture and natural history, a true and natural affinity for its local people, a consummate familiarity with its geography, and a finely understanding of its logistical demands.

Language
our tour leaders are expertise in the various destination languages.

Training and Qualification
All our tour guides are fully qualified and licensed with the local authorities in Nepal.

Concern for health and safety
Whether crossing the street or ascending to altitude in Nepal, the safety of our travelers must be first and foremost in the minds of our tour leaders. Our leaders are in a unique position to foresee many dangers not immediately apparent to the first-time visitor, and are required to have a finely honed sense for the safety and well being of our travelers.

Communication skills
The foundation of good tour leading is the ability to communicate one’s love of a culture in a clear and inspiring way. The ability to communicate a positive outlook in the face of an express is essential as well. Further, it is important that the leader elicit the best dynamic within a group. We assure you on it.

Keen response abilities
Our tour leaders possess the ability to respond competently to unforeseen circumstances, such as client illness, rerouted planes, loss of baggage, or worse.

Formal education
 Our tour leaders must be at ease dealing with a variety of people on a range of subjects. Some of our leaders have earned doctorates or masters degrees in cultural studies, others are self-taught experts in flora or fauna, but all are very educated, and this is a prerequisite for the position.

Environmental Awareness
As the representative of Nepal with Asia Journeys in the host country, leaders are expected to demonstrate respect and care for the local environment. This may include simply ensuring that a “leave no trace” ethic prevails throughout the trip, but may also manifest in a more profound stewardship, such as educating travelers or even locals on the importance of promoting environmental health and respect for the Earth.

Intangibles
Our tour leaders possess some amazing skills that are impossible to calculate. Some have a superb sense of humor. However, others have a delightful sense of the impromptu gesture, like ordering a special local cake for a traveler’s birthday celebration.

Tour Guide Bonuses for Excellent Performance
Additional to this, at the end of your tour in Nepal or Asia Journeys, we request feedback from you about the services of your tour guide (and all other aspects of your tour), through your hand writing evaluation from or online. We send this to you via email at the end of your tour of Nepal. We take this very seriously so we can maintain and improve the quality of our tours and our tour guides. We have a system of awarding bonuses to our tour guides every month if they reach certain targets based on these evaluations. This system further ensures that the guides will strive to provide the best service possible during your tour of Nepal or Asia Journeys.
