Get it all!

With project-integration you literally get all the good stuff:

  1. Knowledge,
  2. Local presence;
  3. A poject-based organisation, without losing any of your brand image;
  4. International connections that actually mean something,
  5. Training manuals and practical production processes;
  6. Full-on Tourguide training and practical tourguiding;
  7. Tour production techniques;
  8. A huge knowledgebase and local contacts that last longer than your average barterdeal for a free beer in a pubcrawl!

 Knowledgebuilding- and creation can best be conducted within a more substantial concept, which will benefit your services, products ands relations hugely.

Conducting guided tours in multiple European cities is far more complicated than it might sound. Although deploying (more or less) local guides and (ex)travellers, it does not give you the local exposure and familiarity you need, in order to keep business up and running in the long run.

Companies like these, often lack a local grounding. Without having to become part of the local establishment, it is highly recommended you root yourself within the local community, in order to:

  1. Facilitate learning-environments for your tourguides
  2. Grow a trustworthy reputation within the local community of stakeholders
  3. Become a full and professional local project-based organisation.

I design and produce concepts that…

facilitate forms of networked coproductions, over different cities and even countries, by means of a collaborative organisational structure.

They require implementation on locations and cities and a unified structure of tours-production, in which knowledge creation takes place through practical interaction and informal learning, making it accessable to new and even temporary tourguides and several stronger local leadership-roles. They create “communities of practice.”

Not just a tool or gimmick

The project-integrations I provide- in combination with knowledgebuilding and courses or as standalone projects, are not just a service by its definition alone, they create living networks.

They come in 2 specific versions:

1. International Tourguide companies

2. Hostels

Creating a tangible “project-body” for your organisation

Adopting the role of local organisation and collaboration-partner greatly broadens your perspectives. In service– and tour-design I look upon the local presence of Original Europe Tours, as beeing a project based-organisation.

Although very specific aswell as general research is used and employed, the actual location based activities such as location-production, guide-training and tour-training and especially the inter-local strategies of selecting and producing networkpartners- and activities, are very specific and custom tailored to your company and locations.

Internships and immersive learning-environments,

We can create personalised short or long-term internships with local museums, theatres, concerthalls et cetera.

Experiential learning and knowledgebuilding

What better way to learn about the cities than to move around in it? Engage with subcultures, listen to the multiple narratives and poetics the city has to offer. Let guides learn from eachother, from experience, co-production and co-creation, and let them pass the knowledge on to eachother.
