Tourguide Training 2016

Monday, March 21, 2016 | Claudia Wenhart / Peter Rollmann / Björn / Tom Friden / Holger Homann | News

The last Edelweiss training day started on Sunday morning with shooting a new group picture at the sports field.

A lot of information about marketing und social media, our new CMS system and navigation were the topics of this day.

Our training day ended with a yummy dinner at Kranewitter Stadel in Telfs. We all had a lot of fun at the professional photo shooting with Kerstin. Michael presented our Island Tour, which was a new tour in 2015. Perfect pictures in an amazing landscape.

As spring is about to blossom.........so does this traing to the new season of awesome riding begin........

.... a lot of information

Finally.......when the Tourguide training starts, the new motorcycle season in Europe is just arond the corner.

Wednesday morning 9.00 o'clock the Tourguide training 2016 starts. Nine "rookies" and seven tourguides in their second season arrived in Mieming.

The training starts with the EBT promotion video, in which all important stations of a tour are shown and explained in depth.

Under blue sky and sunshine  we had a great lunch with homemade yummy "Speck- and Käseknödel" from Angelika.

The sixteen tourguides are enjoying new found cameraderie and learning the Edelweiss system.

It is a lot to take in, but in the long run it is all worth it as the tourguides learn many things to make customer experiences execeptional and that is the most important thing that Edelweiss delivers.

After a long day with a lot of information to digest the new tourguides were looking forward to a hardy tirolischen meal.

Well... What can we say... Where else would you find...

- four days of the most wonderful blue sky sunshine in the most wonderful center of the universe... Mieming
- people from Germany, Austria, The United States, Luxembourg (is that even a country?), Brazil, Hungaria (although slightly also Spanish), Spain, Italy, Holland, Switzerland (although slightly also american), and that other center of the universe: Belgium!
- Gulashsuppe, chili con carne, pizza, pasta, salat, portuguese picnic, french picnic, a beer, schnitzel, some more beer, spinatknodl, a beer again, soms more schnitzel, kartoffelsalat, oh, and did I mention a beer or two? (Or is that because I'm Belgian?)
- Harleys (a whole bunch of them on the longest trailer in the world), Triumphs (just about every shape and form), Ducati's (waiting for other shapes and forms to come in), the new Africa Twin, the very tantalizing new S1000XR, oh, and some old worn out crappy offroad bike from an office staff member... albert?)
- a Maserati AND an original Fiat Panda (both on German plates...).
- a picture in a Tyrolean Stadl and a picture in a Tyrolean sportplatz
- and just, as a whole, the most professional, proper, serious, "let's all have a fantastic riding season"-FUN?!!

Nowhere... Except here at Edelweiss Tourguide Training!

Thank you all for a great week, for so much laughs and memories, and for yet another super start to what will be another wonderful season.

See you down the road... On the best ride there is!
