Welcome to Tour Guides NI which is a new and vibrant Tour Guiding Body recently established to act as a vehicle of progression for Northern Ireland Tour Guides. The organisation is being spearheaded by a number of established and much experienced, professional guides.
The vision is to create a broad, professional organisation to enhance the role of tour guiding within the rapidly growing tourism landscape in line with the recommendations of a Guiding review carried out by (NITB) Tourism NI for Northern Ireland Tour Guides.
We have a broad range of Northern Ireland Tour Guides ranging from Site Guides to City Guides and all Ireland Guides as reflected in the selection of Tours we offer. Our guides are passionate about our beautiful country, enthusiastic, entertaining and professional.
Tours can be delivered in a variety of ways; Walking, Taxi, Driver/Guides and by Coach.
Our field of subjects is extensive with a blend of past, present and future. Tours can be tailored to meet your specific needs. We are here to help and Guide and are happy to discuss suggested itineraries.
New to Tour Guides NI is our Honorary membership where we bring together some of the leading experts in a range of subjects. You as an Operator or Customer have access to this group via our web-site if you would like to book for a lecture.
Also new to Tour Guides NI is our Site/location membership which is currently under development in response to the many queries we have received from sites and local village/community groups around Northern Ireland who deliver tours in their locality.
We place a great emphasis on Quality assurance, Continued Professional Development and Training and have entered into a partnership with Belfast Metropolitan College who have been delivering training for Northern Ireland Tour Guides for the past 15 years.
