You are an official guide and / or private driver guide, Join us !
As of 2019, ShoreToursGuides is not just another online booking site. It is first and foremost a platform of professionals with a philosophy of premium service and unity in the different tours that allows customers to know exactly what to expect, no matter for where they book a tour on the site.
We aim to offer "discovery" or in-depth "all-inclusive" tours lasting from 2 to a maximum of 8 hours, all for one to approximately six people or more at the client's request.
In addition to your experienced guide service, these tours include transportation by private vehicle when necessary, entrance to the various sites to avoid queuing and your personal touch that makes the difference.
Clients are picked up at their hotel or at the ship's pier in the case of a cruise, and returned to the same place once the tour is over.
This means high added value for you
We rely on a network of independent guides and professional drivers like you to ensure that your customers have unforgettable memories of their visit.
In most cases, prices are quoted per tour regardless of the number of participants, as your time spent is always the same. Adjustments are made when tours include tickets to monuments or other attractions and when they include lunch.

The site was created in 2019 just before the health crisis and we already thought at that time that the excursion market would evolve towards more independence from customers.
Covid has only accelerated this phenomenon.
Today, many customers want to move away from the excursions offered by the cruise lines and tour operators to private tours that are more user-friendly, away from the crowds and often even cheaper in the end. That's why we believe there is a growing demand and our 100% European website (designed and managed in Europe) connects clients looking for quality private tours with passionate independent guides who will help them discover the treasures of their region through high quality excursions.
No doubt growth and demand will return to pre-crisis levels, but we believe that your job should evolve towards being more customer friendly and addressing groups limited to a family or group of friends without losing income and having much more rewarding experiences.
How does it work for you?
You control your tours from A to Z.
Each partner guide determines the tour(s) she or he wants to organise. For each tour, the client should be picked up as close as possible to the cruise ship or hotel and brought back to the same place at the end of the tour.
Whenever possible, tours are only conducted in private vehicles (air-conditioning, cold drinks and, if possible, Wi-Fi on board).
You then establish the price of the tour(s) you are proposing. This is the price that will be paid to you once the tour is over.
Once the tour has been approved by our team, it is then posted online with our mark-up.
For your convenience, ShoreTours handles the customer relationship and payments for your tours on your behalf. We then send you the money received every Tuesday after your tour has finished.
Finally, there are no costs for you, neither at registration nor later.
Your registration on our platform is, of course, completely free and without obligation.
It couldn't be easier!
