What The Tourism Industry Says About The International Guide Academy:

“We have not had any shortage of experts to lead our programs in Cuba, but I expect that newer entries to the market may face challenges due to increased competition. Most of our Tour Directors and all our local Cuban guides come to us through referrals from existing tourism entities in Cuba. We appreciate our association with the International Guide Academy.

Peggy GoldmanPresident, Friendly Planet Travel

“We have been impressed with the graduates of International Guide Academy. Mayflower Tours has several IGA alumni who have represented our company for many years. The industry is constantly changing yet the one constant that is important to the group tour market is an excellent Tour Manager. IGA provides a great foundation on which to build experience.”

Gary L. Haverkamp, CTC Vice President of Operations, Mayflower Tours

“We have had wonderful experiences hiring graduates from your academy. They have been awesome… we can’t say enough good things about them and your program! In fact, we are looking for Tour Managers and Tour Guides exclusively from the International Guide Academy.”
