TSLO has become the acknowledged leader in tour guide training franchises because we make sure every tour guide is prepared to succeed in their career.

For consistently high performing Schools with a healthy business model and superior educational outcomes, Tour Guide Second License Organization TSLO developed TSL System to serve as a solid foundation for each School’s franchisees and faculty.

Highlights of TSL System include:

• Our On-site Owner/Director model supports educational excellence and a thriving business. This dual management system gives the Director freedom to observe classrooms, mentor teachers and develop a healthy learning environment for potential tour guide, while the Owner is afforded the flexibility necessary to operate an efficient, thriving business.

• Our daily flexible schedule allows franchisees to enjoy a family-friendly lifestyle. Owners are able to operate their businesses while balancing time with their families and friends. Most TSL Schools are open Monday through Friday, from 10 AM to 5 PM (hours of operation may vary by location).

• Exceptional training ensures top performance in Schools. TSL School franchisees share a varied background, but very few are educators. Therefore, we support smooth School operations by ensuring that all franchisees complete a comprehensive training program on topics including operational practices, customer service, licensing, marketing, hiring and training and TSL Quality Assurance. In addition, TSL holds annual franchisee conventions and regional meetings.

• TSL Quality Assurance reinforces the highest standards of care and The TSL exam Program. TSL has developed a premier program to monitor compliance with the standards of TSL Quality Assurance (QA). TSL QA Representatives make unannounced semi-annual visits to each School to assess compliance with a full range of health and safety policies and procedures, as well as curriculum and program performance.

While every state has a licensing agency that oversees state requirements, TSL Schools are additionally obligated to fulfill our own extensive QA Review=The TSL QA Review and its exceptionally stringent controls are setting the standard for quality in the tourism industry.
