Why ProGuides and Tour guides are important to your businessby proguides - July 8th, 2013. Filed under: Member Updates.
Tour guides are the human face of tourism. Tourists travel in order to see things and learn – they aspire to be guided by people who know where to go and what they are talking about. It may well eventuate that the tour guide is the most influential person the visitor will meet on their journey. The tour guide may be the one to ensure their trip becomes a once in a lifetime event. The tour guide may well be the reason the visitor will decide to return and recommend your company’s tour product to their friends and family.
