Alice Springs, NT

Dear Bill,

I am writing to apply for the position of Tour Guide at Red Roads Tourism as advertised recently on

I am a recent tourism graduate with 2 years’ experience working as an adventure tour guide. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Applied Science, majoring in eco-tourism, and through this I hope to share the stories of our incredible environment.

My enthusiasm and communication skills have allowed me to act confidently as a tour guide, developing strong relationships with both clients and local communities. I’m motivated to continuously improve not only my presentation skills but the business processes in which I take part, demonstrated by my implementation of new booking systems while at Tropical Tours.

Attention to detail and the ability to assess and manage risk have seen me manage group dynamics, avoid incidents and keep patrons happy and engaged. In my current role I have received positive feedback on my enthusiasm and knowledge of local topics from customers and colleagues alike.

I have always been passionate about the amazing locations that Australia boasts and now look forward to discovering the incredible ecosystems it harbours. I hope to continue developing my skills and knowledge and would appreciate the opportunity to do so with Red Roads Tourism.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Yours sincerely,
