Food Tours of America is always looking for great people to join our team! If you love to perform, have a knack with people, and learn quickly, we would love to talk with you about the fabulous life of a part-time Dallas food guide. If you are a detail-oriented problem solver let’s talk about the part-time administrative work that keeps our tours running smoothly.
Want to join our team? These are the following positions we are looking to fill.
Do you love Dallas? Do you love food? Can you command a crowd, make them laugh, and have everyone literally eating out the palm of your hand? If so, then this job is for you! Food Tours of America is seeking passionate, highly energetic and responsible people as Tour Guides. Leading a food tour is a combination of quick thinking on your feet, advanced storytelling, and herding cattle from one location to the next. We provide you all the training and get you up to speed. Once you’re up and leading a food tour, you’ll be amazed that you’re getting paid handsomely for something so ridiculously fun and rewarding. Positions are part-time and/or on-call. Only applicants living close to/in downtown or Uptown areas will be considered. Self-employed individuals and/or flexible schedules preferred. Both weekday and weekend positions available. Our walking tours run year round.
Paid training while on a tour is $10 per hour. Tour guides are service industry professionals so the majority of the compensation is from guest gratuities. We offer a $20 per hour guarantee, just in case. That said, our tour guides generally average between $20 and $35 per hour including gratuities. Tours are 3 to 4 hours. This includes arriving 30 minutes early to greet guests and allowing 30 minutes for post tour administrative tasks. Tour guides are required to own a smart phone or camera, have desktop/laptop-based Internet access in your place of residence, eat your vegetables (kidding), and check your email and voicemail at least once per day (not kidding).
