The European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG) and Athina Training Centre Skills Academy are proud to present the “Western Silk Road Experience” online course. FEG trainers and researchers have created the course as life-long training for qualified tourist guides.
The Silk Road is the longest, most ancient trade route, connecting diverse cultures and far-away countries over the centuries. Most people associate the Silk Road with Asia only. But did you know that its routes extend over all European countries from the Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic Sea to Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and to the wider geographical area of Eurasia? Included in Eurasia are Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, as countries bordering the Black Sea.
The “Western Silk Road Experience” online course offers tourist guides the opportunity to explore a new guiding theme and add to existing tours.
Follow “the steps of silk” to destinations off the beaten track. Be the first to plan and to offer diverse and sustainable destination visits to clients, based on this interesting and less-explored subject.
Take advantage of the work of FEG trainers and follow the “Western Silk Road Experience” online course to gain inside knowledge by this new life-long training and certification for this particularly evocative subject.
