Calling all history nerds! Your passion has found its reward.
Hi! We’re Aaron and Rachel and we own a tour company named Historic America based in Washington, DC. We need passionate, energetic history lovers (basically, geeks like us) to join our guiding team and lead walking tours this Spring!
This is a fun, flexible and lucrative opportunity. Maybe you need an energizing side hustle, or perhaps you’re in search of an exciting career path in history and historical interpretation. Whatever your point of entry, if monetizing your passion for history while developing a new skill set sounds good, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ll train you, and turn you loose to walk and talk American history with interesting tour groups, helping you to grow as a storyteller and develop a presentational style. Plus it pays.
