What training has the leader / guide received?

All of the Footprint tour leaders and guides have graduated from a university in Vietnam (the majority have graduated from Hanoi Open University's Faculty of Tourism). They have ample experience in the hospitality and tourism industry and University level guiding skills. The average work experience (as guides) of our tour leaders is three to five years. Further, the Footprint team is constantly updating and improving our skills by getting involved in extra courses, workshops and activities.
