Now Hiring Minnesota Tour Guides

Now hiring announcement poster

Big news! After launching our tours last month, we’re now looking for the right people to help build our operation in the USA.

See the full description below, and email to apply.


Title — Tour Guide / Location — Twin Cities / Wage — $25/hour
Contract type —  Hourly (est. 15-25 hrs/wk) / Reports to — Founding Director
Start date — ASAP

Since 2017 Depot Adventures has offered small group walking tours in Australia. Starting this summer, Depot expanded to the Twin Cities and we’re looking for the folks who will help shape this new and exciting operation.

At Depot, we believe that the relationship with a tour guide is far more memorable than any one fact about a city. Making connections with our guests is what we do best. Yes, we can tell you about the history of the city, but Depot guides make the difference with personalized, specific recommendations and stories based on their lived experience. 

Drawing from unique and diverse personalities, our team includes a diverse cast of beermakers, musicians, comedians and actors who share a passion for the cities they guide in.

We’re looking for a versatile tour guide who can quickly adapt to a variety of settings. Don’t worry if you’ve never been a tour guide — we’re looking for folks who are the life of the party, command the attention of the room in a conversation, and have the ability to disarm even the surliest guests.

Our most successful past candidates have not only been experienced tour guides but summer camp counselors, multi-day tour guides,  stand-up comedians, actors and hospitality staff.


Requirements “Nice-to-haves”
  • Comfortable using mobile technology (training will be provided on a multitude of mobile apps and point-of-sale systems)
  • Regular availability, particularly on weekends 
  • Legal right to work in USA
  • Punctual and reliable
  • Excellent record-keeper 
  • Tour guiding or group leadership experience is helpful – 1-3 years in any destination. If you do not have this, please explain why you think you have the skills needed to lead tour
  • Passion for online video content to contribute to our @oneminutetours TikTok channel


Key responsibilities

  • Fieldwork — The majority of your time will be spent guiding physical tours, during which you will:
  • Lead tours such as the Complete Walking Tour and Hidden Bar Tour
    • Exceed agreed KPIs for customer feedback and sales 
    • Use approved technology to maintain records of every tour given


The US arm of this business is in its infancy, so at the start this role will be limited in hours (15-25 hours/week) but opportunities to grow will present themselves as the business grows.
