So, you are planning a career as a Tour Guide / Tour Manager? What an exciting choice😃
Testimonial – What Our Graduate Marko from Alberta said about his Program:
“I would like to share my experience with Travel College Canada and say it was absolutely a good program. I enjoyed the simple program instructions, and they allowed me to go at my own pace and time. Made it very convenient when working around my work and life schedule.
When I completed the program, they sent my certificate in the mail and it arrived very fast considering I’m located in western Canada. I am very grateful for my choice of school, thank you once again Louise for all your help in guiding me to the next step in my life.”
