Urban Adventures Who Are We

WHAT YOU NEED…

 

Really, all you need to be a successful Urban Adventures Partner is a massive passion for your city and the ability to show travellers the Best. Day. Ever. when they’re there. If you’re looking for an opportunity full of potential, to be able to work for yourself and yet be part of an inclusive and supported network with a formula for success – this is it.

 

Artists, musicians, actors, bloggers, retail staff, foodies, freelance tour guides, bartenders, servers, customer service reps, concierges, and other hospitality professions are all perfect candidates to run and own an Urban Adventures business in their destination. In particular, we’d love to hear from any former team members from Living Social Adventures. We know for a fact that all of you listed above are great people with exactly the right skills to be a successful Urban Adventures Partner.

MOVE ON IF…

 

You wouldn’t describe yourself as motivated, confident, and driven. Becoming an Urban Adventures Partner isn’t just a job. It’s a business. Actually, it’s your business, the success of which you are accountable. You need to be motivated to sell yourself and your business for it to be successful. If you don’t have the confidence to go and sell yourself to collaborative sales partners in your destination, please don’t apply to be an Urban Adventures Partner. If you think having a few doors slammed in your face will kill your drive to succeed, please don’t apply either. We aren’t trying to be mean; we know from experience that if you can’t hack it as a salesperson, your business will fail. It’s surprisingly simple, really.

KEEP IN MIND…

 

In some jurisdictions, you must have the appropriate licenses to show tourists around. Before inquiring with us, please check with your city what is required to be a tour guide and run a tour business. As a responsible travel business, Urban Adventures can only work with those adhering to the local legislation of their area.

ANOTHER THING…

 

For at least the first year of your business’ life, you need to wear about as many hats as you can possibly balance. You’ll be the tour guide, the salesperson, the digital master, the admin assistant, and the accountant. It’s a lot of work, sure, but if you weren’t prepared to put your nose to the grindstone, you wouldn’t have read this far, now would you?

 

Don’t worry – we’ve got all the systems in place to make it easy to understand what you need to do. We’ve been doing this for (what feels like) an awfully long time, and we’re here to support you. You need to be ready to get up six days a week and work your arse off for the success of your future. You could sit around at let someone else do it for you, but that wouldn’t be nearly as satisfying, now would it?

THE DOLLARS AND CENTS…

 

There is a cost to joining the Urban Adventures Network as a probationary member. The only upfront cost required is a contribution of $400 USD to get your local website uploaded and running. If you aren’t willing to invest $400 in yourself, here’s your second chance to stop reading and move on. We are unable to make financial exceptions for anyone except for this one scenario. In our opinion, in order to be truly invested in the success of your business, you need to have skin in the game, so to speak. We think $400 is a pretty reasonable contribution for a future where you’re known as the local expert in your destination.

 

 

Urban Adventures By the Numbers



WHERE OUR RADAR IS BUZZING…

 

We’ve already found incredible local partners in over 100 cities around the world, so we’re on the hunt to meet people in new cities. All of our licenses offer exclusivity in their destination, so overlapping just doesn’t happen.

 

In particular, we have our hearts set on the following cities, but hey, if you’re passionate about somewhere not on this list that we don’t already cover, then we want to hear from you too.
