WHAT OUR VOLUNTEERS THINK & FAQs

“It brings the travelling spirit to my everyday life!” – Bea

I love running the tours because I always learn something new, meet new interesting people, have fun doing what I love – my heart is where my home is!” – Barbara

Heidelberg is such an incredible city with a lot of history and stunning places to visit- it’s best when you can share it with friends, even if you just met them on the tour a few minutes ago.” – Joana

What type of employment contract would I be on?

All of our tour guides are considered freelancers, rather than employees of Alternative Walking Tour.

How much money can I make? 

The amount of money you can earn will vary depending on the type of tour and size of the group.  It also depends on how often you can run the tours!

How often will I be running tours?

We try and be as flexible as possible in terms of working with your schedule. We use a simple, app-based system that lets you send us your availability each week, then we work out the rest based on the number of tours and tourists we have and confirm your timetable.

What do I need to apply as a tour guide?

To join us as a tour guide, all we ask is that you’ve spent at least 6 months living in Heidelberg and that you love our city – we want people who can use their experiences to bring their own fresh, unique perspective to the tours!  We require our guides to speak good English or Spanish for our free public walking tours; however, we’re always open to speakers of other languages for our private tours.
