Does the leader / guide hold any formal qualifications?

First, all of our guides have a University degree, majoring in tour guiding, more than often granted from Hanoi Open University. Further, all of our guides have successfully completed the Sustainable Tourism Training Course which was supported by WUSC (World University Support of Canada) and the Canadian Embassy, and was taught by international teachers. Other courses Footprint guides have taken part in include an Eco-tourism training course offered by WWF-Vietnam, and responsible travel courses offered in-house and by RTC Vietnam. All of the guides have at minimum a basic first aid certification.
