MINI Boot Camp is an intense two-day training experience offering tour guide training that is 100% out in the field.
In NYC we're focused on culture, food and guiding in a frenetic urban environment. This is not a basic destination training, but rather a guide training course that will take you out of your box and show you parts of New York you're probably not familiar with!
If you're coming from out of town, you should fly in on Friday and leave on Monday. Class is 2 full days, on Saturday and Sunday. You can come earlier and stay later, and enjoy the city! New York is back in action.
The days will be long: we'll start by meeting at 8:30am, and we'll finish at dinner time, generally around 6:30pm. The days are an intense and fast-paced adventure focused on showing you new neighborhoods, new ways of tour guiding, and giving you assignments to let you practice in a safe and supportive environment.
We'll set departure points for each day at locations in Midtown, Manhattan. Find lodging that makes sense for you, and accessible by public transportation. If you'd like to be paired with a roommate, please let us know.
