DuVine Bike Tour Guides

DuVine is always seeking new guides to lead our guests on unforgettable cycling vacations all over the world. Whether giving a history lesson on the region, leading a scenic ride, maintaining our bikes, or preparing a picnic, our guides play an essential role in ensuring that our guests are happy.

We pride ourselves on recruiting guides who are compelling, genuine, charismatic leaders, tireless in their pursuit to create memorable experiences. They must be logistical masters who can juggle everything from fine-tuning a derailleur to communicating our guests’ dietary preferences at restaurants—and always with poise and grace.

Currently, we are only accepting applications for guiding in the U.S. and Europe.

To be considered, you must:

  • Be fluent in English and the language of the country in which you wish to guide
  • Be knowledgeable about the country where you wish to guide, including its cuisine, wine, history, and culture
  • Bike confidently
  • Have general familiarity with bike mechanics such as fixing a flat, installing pedals, adjusting handlebar stems, and tuning gears
  • Have a valid driver’s license and clean driving record; in Europe, you must be able to drive a manual transmission (stick shift)

If you’re as comfortable with introducing our guests to world-class cuisine and wine pairings as you are with paving the way for tough climbs and sharing cycling tips, please complete our bike tour guide application. We hire guides from November–February, and again in May–July for the upcoming travel season.
