Tour Leading

I have been leading trips as a freelance tour director and guide for various tour operators and educational travel programs since training at the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI). I’m also a Seattle tour guide as well as a step-on guide for groups visiting the exquisite Pacific Northwest. I have worked with guests from a myriad of backgrounds in destinations throughout the United States, Ireland, and Italy. Alongside my tour work, I have extensive independent travel experience in the United States, Europe, and Africa. If you are interested in having me lead a trip for your travel company or group, please e-mail me at betsy(at)betsybruce(dot)com.
