04-M. Culinary Tourist Guide Training

As the number of culinary tour companies grows, so does the demand for culinary tourist guides. There is a wide range of talent among culinary guides. Some guides have been professionally trained, while many others have not. Some guides have great personalities, but limited knowledge of the local culinary culture, which is a disservice to their customers. This masterclass is designed to train to a consistent level, with the end goal of delivering a high-quality culinary tour with the highest chance of receiving the highest ratings from customers.
