We like to Work as a Team: Guide & Assistant.
As a trekking guide I work with my cousin as a assistant. I want to work with a assistant for the following reasons:
- The services of a assistant are in valuable during the trip. My clients welcome taking a assistant along. It frees them up to have a more enjoyable trip because they don’t have to carry as much weight themselves especially in challenging terrain with many elevation changes. He/she can carries a maximum (12 kg for female) -(15 kg for male) load.
- The experience of assistant gains is an important step to become a guide him/herself.
- He/she is an important source of support in emergency situations.
- We have done many trips together and I have complete confidence in his/her ability. We work as best team.
