We’re always looking for outgoing people to lead private walking tours for our current and upcoming locations. If you’re a people person, have a passion for photography, and love exploring your home city, this is your opportunity to ditch the desk job and show guests how amazing the city is.
At Boutique Traveler we pride ourselves on providing the absolute best quality experiences for our guests. In order to maintain this ultra-high service standard, we only employ the best of the best people.
Our guide-ographers are provided with a comprehensive training program and regular support with the opportunity to work in a flexible, fun environment. We pay well above industry standard and our guide-ographers are consistently rewarded for their exemplary performance with generous gratuities from guests.

You must be able to provide your own professional camera (DSLR or mirrorless – no point-and-shoots or phone cameras will be accepted).

For each of the cities that will be launching soon, we are looking for a city manager. This person will not only lead tours but will play a vital role in the creation of each itinerary, business development, training, scheduling, and recruitment.
This is the perfect opportunity for someone ambitious who is looking to run their own small business. We’ll train you how to manage everything, provide all the systems and look after the marketing.
We also regularly have part-time opportunities in our current locations.
- San Francisco
- Mexico City
