Dear Trek Travel Guide Applicant,

I started guiding over 20 years ago because I wanted to do something I truly had a passion for. I love to hear guests tell us their trip was the best trip they have ever been on. I especially love the smiling faces, hearing hearty laughter and watching them enjoying the simple pleasure of riding bikes in the most beautiful places on earth.

Our Guides are the cornerstone of our Business and are solely focused on providing the vacation of a lifetime. They have an intoxicating zest for life. They’re insightful, quirky and, from cartoon designers and bike couriers to engineers and lawyers, they come from a variety of backgrounds that have shaped their charismatic personas.

They are magicians, able to transform from grease to grace. One moment they are wrenching on bikes or appearing exactly when needed with a beverage, and the next they are eloquently explaining the intricate history of each hilltop village or confidently pairing two-star Michelin meals with the perfect local wine. With intimate knowledge of the landscape, they can suggest the best route to match any riding ability. What sets them apart from the rest is their infinitely accommodating, fun and flexible attitude. They live by the motto Your Day, You Decide and will attempt anything to ensure that every trip is a trip of a lifetime.
