Sample Tour Guide Cover Letter

When writing a tour guide cover letter be sure to mention previous experience and what you can bring to the job such as fact-finding skills, speaking with clients about their travel interests, using the computer to access various destinations and the tours associated with them, and most important, your ability to lead people on a tour in a foreign or domestic destination. All tour guide cover letters should provide details about what applicants can bring to the job so they will have an edge over competitors.

Dear Mr. Pittman:

Your listing on JobBankUSA.com for tour guides impressed me. You covered everything you need in such an employee. It seemed you were describing me! I am a person who can lead others to exciting destinations and then inform them of interesting facts about the places we visit. I have experience as an associate tour guide and am now ready to manage a group as the leader. I've been on ten tours throughout Europe and feel certain that my knowledge and experience will qualify me for the position.

I have good customer service skills and I love helping people enjoy and learn from their travel.

Would you like to meet to talk over this job? I'd enjoy speaking with you in person. Please call me on my cell phone: 123-456-7891 to set up an interview at your convenience. Thank you for your kind attention to my cover letter and my qualifications.
