How You Can Join NaviTour

Guiding

You’re the contact, the expert, the friend of a friend brimming with local knowledge. NaviTour is the connector.

At NaviTour, you generate and own the tour and the content, we generate the hits. You create the experience, adventure, excursion, trip, whatever you want to call it. We set you up with the best technology to build the best travel activity a guest can find, and hook you up to a pipeline of customers.

Testing

We need to hear from real guests to give everyone the best content and performance possible. We are currently offering the opportunity to take some of our tours for FREE. All we need from you is your feedback. Want to be a tour tester? Sign up below.

Writing

Some people are made for the spotlight, others prefer to stick to the shadows. If this sounds like you but you are still knowledgeable and passionate about topics and places you could be a tour writer for those who love people and leading excursions but don’t have their own content.

You and Your Friends Can Share Your Knowledge and Expertise!

Here at NaviTour we treat our Guides as though you are the most important part of the business, because you are. We aren’t the experts, we will never know your town like you do, we will never be able to convey your excitement about the topics. That’s why all content is created and owned by the guides.
