Tour Guide

Tour Guide

Tour guides’ job is different from the tour manager, as they only need to take charge of the itineraries and introduce the history, culture, local stories and local specialties of the destination to group members during the trip, and do not need to arrange accommodation, transportation and other issues. Somebody may think that a tour guide is only required to know how to warm up the atmosphere, but this job can’t be finished smoothly by chatting alone.

In the past, information was not widely spread, so group members might not know the information about the place even if the tour guide gives wrong introduction. However, as time goes by and the world changes, they can know exactly whether the introduction is true or not by searching online. Hence, most tour guides have profound knowledge of history and deep understanding of the local cultural background, which can help tourists get a better understanding of the attractions and gain more from the journey instead of just visiting the places then leaving.

Tour guides should improve their language skills constantly. Some information, such as local economy and geography, is probably interesting but may sound boring for those who just get to know it for the first time. Therefore, tour guides need to explain things in an interesting and simple way so the tourists will not be bored and can learn more as well. After all, tourists want to have fun in a tour group instead of getting lectures.
