Antony has now become a qualified tourist guide for the Orkney Islands Area.
He is a holder of the coveted Green Badge showing that he is a regional affiliate of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association. The Green badge is only awarded after months of intensive theoretical and practical training followed by a formal examination.
The examination tests candidates on their ability to plan a detailed tour as well as their knowledge of Orkney. The practical test involves two real tours to see how the candidates manage groups of visitors and how well they understand and communicate information with their guests.
Crucially, STGA Affiliates are fully insured when guiding.
