Wow Tour Guide

WOW Tour Guide is a seven-month nationwide tourism rally to search for the best destination guides from around the Philippines. Open to all interested parties aged 18 and above who want to represent a Philippine destination, the campaign aims to ignite the sense of nationalism among the youth sector and to answer the tourism industry’s need for destination guides. This is also a great chance for everyone to introduce less explored destinations to the rest of the Philippines and the world through creative tour guiding videos that will be uploaded on www.IslandsPhilippines.Net.

A WOW Tour Guide Caravan, in partnership with SM Supermalls, will take place in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao to bring the campaign to different destinations in the country. The event will feature a video booth where interested participants may shoot their tour guiding entry, and computer stations where guests may log on to www.IslandsPhilippines.Net to vote for their favorite tour guides.

The WOW Tour Guide Caravan will be in SM Baguio on May 21-23, SM Naga on June 11-13, SM Cebu on June 25-27, SM Iloilo on July 9-11, SM Bacolod on July 23-25, SM Davao on August 6-8 and SM Cagayan de Oro on August 20-22.

A Gala Night Dinner for the awarding ceremony will take place on November 27, 2010 in Manila. The top three tour guides will receive the following cash prizes: P300,000 for the Grand Prize Winner, P150,000 for the 1st runner up and P50,000 for the second runner up. The finalists will also receive a prize from the Department of Tourism for an extensive Tour Guide Training, public speaking training from the Executive Toastmasters Club and other exciting prizes from sponsors.
