Private Guide World online platform

When editing a profile, please follow simple rules to quickly and successfully pass moderation.

Upload Image Policy

The image should be of good quality and your face should be clear and in focus. You must be alone in this picture, using other people's images is a criminal offense! Our service is designed to search for private tour guides, so our tourists need to see precisely what their tour guide looks like, they will not be happy to see your company logo or any other abstract image in place of the avatar. They don't care about the company, but they CARE about your appearance!

photos acceptable for tour guides' profiles AVATAR

And very often a good picture on the avatar becomes the main reason why tourists choose one tour guide, not another! If the profile did not pass moderation but was rejected, it means it is not visible to our platform visitors until the avatar change. 

We understand that uploading and editing photos can sometimes be a daunting task. To make your experience on our platform even smoother, we've released a new ten-minute tutorial video. This video walks you through the process step-by-step, addressing common challenges faced by tour guides during this process. We've used three different examples to ensure comprehensive coverage of the topic. This video is currently available in English on our YouTube channel @PrivateGuideWorld + with 31 different languages subtitles. Just turn them on when you start watching the video by tapping the CC button on the video screen. We will soon release versions in all other languages which our platform uses daily ensuring clarity and accessibility for our diverse community.
