Hey Mira, thanks for sharing your course with the community. What's been the feedback so far from the course? Do you have any interesting success stories of businesses who added self-guided tours as an offering, and how it helped generate additional revenue?

Hi Ian, great questions. The course was launched very recently so I don't have student feedback to share just yet. Some ATTA member tour operators added self guided tours to their product portfolios to attract the domestic market, who are often more resistant to paying for guided trips. This helped generate critical additional revenue these past two years. Our educators are ATTA members and Ambassadors who were able to do this successfully and are sharing their knowledge through this course.

Our tours specially trekking in the high mountains. Can you explain in detail about how we can generate revenue if we offer self guided tours??

Hi Shree - thanks for your question. I asked one of the educators from this class and her response was this: We talk in detail about how some locations are not suitable for SGT. High mountains might be one of those areas, depending on remoteness and risk (or perception of risk). We do discuss how some places which cannot be self guided completely can have some days that are self -guided with some guided experiences. So it completely depends on how and whether tourists can safely travel alone (which we go over in detail) in a certain area.
