Tour guide

A tour guide is a professional who accompanies individuals or groups around places of interest such as historical sites, museums, cultural centers, or other attractions. Tour guides usually have a profound knowledge of a certain destination so that they can provide tourists with extensive information, give trip recommendations, and answer their questions.

Some tour guides specialize in walking city tours or one-day tours focused on a certain attraction, while others are involved in longer, multi-day itineraries with multiple activities included.

Important qualities of a tour guide are good communication skills, deep interest and enthusiasm about the destination where they work, and the ability to organize and engage visitors to help them make the most out of their time.
