    I worked at Mountain West Tours and Events as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to meet lots of interesting Japanese people from all walk of life and ages while touring some of the Nation's most beautiful National Parks. The pay is good, especially for a summer job, and you can expect to move up in seniority and pay as you work harder and become a better guide.

    Cons

    Working and driving all the time takes it toll on your mind and body. And you might not always get the best or nicest PAX. Occationally getting paid on time from this company was a problem. And being a tour guide takes your life on the road, so you are away from friends and family a lot.

    I have been working at Mountain West Tours and Events

    Pros

    They have a great management and friendly managers. The compensation is great with opportunities to visit state parks national monuments. It is also a great way to learn new Japanese words and phrases.

    Cons

    Downsides is that it is very tiring sometimes when you are on tour for so long. And you do have to deal with the occasional disgruntled customer and there can be frustrating times with the Japanese language.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hardest thing was that I was not paid in a timely manor. Sometimes it took 3 weeks or more to recieve my compensation.
