By the time September rolls around, school isn’t just going to be back in session for the kids! That’s right. The Gatlinburg Comedy Tours team is going to Trip School in September. We are excited to learn from and network with the best in the tour industry. This is our opportunity to brush up on our tour guide skills and provide you with the best possible tour experience in the Smoky Mountains. We get visitors from all over the world and now is our chance to show them what the Smokies are all about. Here are 5 ways Trip School is going to make our Gatlinburg TN tours even better: 

1. Improve storytelling skills

A big part of being a tour guide is also being a storyteller. At Gatlinburg Comedy Tours, we have guides with years of storytelling experience. They know the history of Gatlinburg like the back of their hand and want to share it with everyone that goes on our tours. Attending Trip School will help us hone in on those storytelling skills and gain a new perspective on how we can weave more stories into our tours.

2. Network with the best in the industry 

The tourism industry is all about networking! You can’t be shy and be a tour guide. Having the gift of the gab is a huge part of the job. That’s why we’re sending our big talkers to Trip School! They can help us get the word out about our Gatlinburg TN tours. Networking with the best in the industry will help us gain connections and learn from other experts in the field.

3. Gain insight into tourism industry trends 

Just like most things, the tourism industry is always changing. That’s why it’s important to stay up to date on the latest trends. Is there a tour company in California that is doing something amazing? We want to know about it! Trip School will help us learn all about what other tour companies are doing so we can add these trending ideas to our own Gatlinburg TN tours. Our customers can rest easy knowing we are looking to give them the best tour experience out there. 

4. Grow our Gatlinburg TN tours reach 

When you’re trying to grow a business, you gotta get your name out there! Attending Trip School will help Gatlinburg Comedy Tours grow our reach. We want to be the go-to tour experience for anybody looking to get to know the Smokies better. Currently, we are able to show people the funny side of Gatlinburg. We want more people to be able to experience this too! Growing our reach will allow us to make this happen. 

5. Bragging rights 

Once our team finishes Trip School, we will be able to say we are Trip School certified! That’s got to come with some bragging rights. There is nothing wrong with working hard and giving yourself a little pat on the back. We are doing everything we can to become leaders in the Gatlinburg tourism industry. Might as well have a few laughs along the way too!
