Nikki: tour guide trainer

Translating between tour guides and tour operators.

Nikki has worked across the tours & activity sector from NYC tour guide and a multi-day tour leader to tour designer for two multi-day start-up operators, and running the Guide Program at Intrepid Urban Adventures (working with over 160 local operators around the world totaling 1500+ guide).

Through the Global Guide Alliance, she advocates for guides to be recognized as the most important piece of the tourism landscape and translates between tour guides and tor operators.

She also does her best to simplify Responsible Travel by talking about it without all the fancy buzz words.

By day, she designs experiences with the stellar Trips Programming team at Atlas Obscura.

Listen/Watch Nikki On:

I have worked with Nikki several times in the past few years on special projects. Each time, she has distilled the project down to its most basic building blocks, and then over-delivered on what was asked. She is a fantastic thought-leader around guiding and advised us well on how to add value to guides in line with our business.
