76.You might think that a good tour guide needs to have a PhD in Art History or a family that dates back for seven generations in the area. Neither could be further from the truth. If you are reading this, you already have the best quality in a tour guide: curiosity. A good tour guide always wants to know about his/her surroundings and to learn about new things. Besides, a good tour guide also possesses the following qualities.
A good tour guide is sensitive to the needs of others. Although he/she can be as gregarious and funny as Robin Williams, or as knowledgeable as a professor, neither talent will make for a great experience unless the tour guide is sensitive enough to realize when someone’s feet hurt. In other words, a good tour guide needs to be aware of the needs and limitations of his/her guests and to realize when they are tired, hungry, bored or simply unable to do the things they have signed up for.
A good tour guide is well organized. He/She always has plans, back up plans and contingency back up plans to help deal with unforeseen problems and complications. Being organized also means that a guide does not forget to meet someone or show up in the wrong place. He/She also knows when the museums, parks, restaurants and other attractions are open, and stays current on all local events so that he/she can suggest lots of things to do and see.
A good tour guide is knowledgeable about the local area. This includes places to go, places to eat, things to do, museums, and local attractions. A good tour guide always puts together a collection of local attraction brochures and keeps them with him/her.
