Food Tour Guide

Leading a food tour is a combination of quick thinking on your feet, advanced storytelling, and leading from one location to the next. We provide you all the training and get you up to speed on your missing knowledge of St. Louis history and its incredible foods. Once you’re up and leading a food tour, you’ll be amazed that your getting paid handsomely for something so ridiculously fun and rewarding. If you think you have the improv and leadership skills required, then please apply before all available Tour Guide positions are filled!


Only applicants living close to/in St. Louis metro area will be considered. Self-employed individuals and/or flexible schedules preferred. Must be able to lead tours between April 1 and November 30th. A combination of daily, part-weekly, and/or weekend positions are available. Tours are 3-3.5 hours long and depart at various times… refer to online schedule. Prefer applicants to be at least 25 years old, although exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis. Please no undergraduate students or summer-work only applicants.


We will only contact applicants who meet our criteria for an interview.


Training lasts approximately 4-5 weeks. Training is paid.


Once hired and trained, most Tour Leaders, including gratuities, average over $120 per tour.  A Tour Guide never guides more than one tour in a day.
