Tour Guides Needed for Reno Food Tours

Description

Do you love Reno? Do you love food? Can you command a crowd, make them laugh, and have everyone figuratively eating out of the palm of your hand? If so, then this job is for you!

At Reno Food Tours, we are always on the lookout for creative, talented & detail-oriented people to join our team of culinary story-tellers. We believe that the best guides are individuals that have a great attitude, a passion for Reno and its food.

Our guides possess a drive for perfection, a youthful attitude, energy, exuberance & desire for fun. These ideas remain at the root of how a guide moves, thinks and acts. Our guides manage every moment of our tours with these goals in mind. They are restless in the pursuit to create great experiences for our guests because they love it. They are exceptional hosts, leaders, performers, promoters, managers, connoisseurs, and overall great Reno ambassadors.
