As a tour guide, you will be asked to learn the ins and outs of Chicago and its history, and will be responsible for relaying it to our guests in a fun and unique way. Our tour guides wear many hats: guide, confidant, problem solver, conversationalist, leader, care giver, and general rock star! Guiding tours with us is a highly sought-after position demanding lots of cultural and historical knowledge and above-all, extraordinary people skills. Those are the obvious qualifications, but no less important is the ability to work very flexible hours and have a strong sense of team pride.
We keep our bikes in tip-top shape so tours run smoothly, and for this we seek qualified mechanics interested in maintaining our tour fleet as well as other fleet maintenance tasks.
There are many steps a tourist takes before becoming one of our happy customers. Behind the scenes, we have a dedicated team of people who are the first point of contact for anybody considering taking a tour with us. They say "lots of little things make big things happen" and this is certainly true of the little details this job entails. We are always accepting applications for qualified individuals with a passion for customer service in an exciting tour office in Chicago.
