How can we assist
We can assist with assignments on a day to day basis and far into the future. We have many clients who request both options and we look forward to assisting you as well.
We have met all our freelancers and know them well. We organize annual inspiration days, train new guides and tour leaders and take pride in keeping up with what is in demand in the tourism industry. From the start in 2008, we have seen an increase almost every year - both in the number of tasks and in the number of freelancers to meet requests. The two legs are closely connected and must be in order to serve you well.
Qualifying tour guides and tour managers
By running educating workshops on a regular basis for all our freelancers as well as educating new tour guides and tour managers we ensure our freelancers are all qualified professionals. We are always open for applications from skilled tour guides and tour managers (via our application form only).
Several ways can lead to becoming a good tour guide or tour manager. Some of our guides have a professional background on which they guide, others have gained their knowledge from a hobby, deep interest in specific subjects or life experience, which can also be good basis for a future as a guide or tour manager. Sign up for our education and we'll help you to the right skills for a future with guided tours and happy guests.
We are a fairly permanent staff, but are always open to internships for students etc. who can benefit from working in an industry like ours. Internships must be a win-win set up. The intern gains new skills and we have the opportunity to get to know potentially new freelancers. In our experience getting to know each other during an internship new opportunities can emerge from our dialogues as colleagues.

Kitt Lykke Nielsen
Kitt is Mette's assistant. Kitt has a fondness for working with numbers and therefore she is responsible for the bookkeeping. Kitt is a light spirited being and we always enjoy her infectious laughter. No day without a hearty laugh could rightly be her motto. She is our decor geek and she initiates our interior design. Another one of her geek projects is buying and selling properties which she can renovate.
Kitt loves providing good customer service and has a past both in the textile industry and with the Danish Refugee Council.

Alice is our fairy with cleaning skills and she looks after the rest of us and makes sure that it is always nice to go to work in a pleasant and clean environment. Alice very sweetly says: I like to make a difference.
Alice is a warm family person which we also enjoy. If we want a tip for a good movie, Alice is the one to ask for advice.
With restricted working abilities, Alice must have a certain number of hours, a bit more than we can provide. Fortunately we are based in a neighbour friendly area, so two of our neighbours also benefit from Alice's cleaning fairy skills. We all love working together and especially the results.
