Spending The Best Of Your Tours

By Helene Norris


You may be planning to visit a certain place for adventure, fun or your other personal reasons. You are not familiar with the place so in order to get the most of your Haida Gwaii tours, it all boils down to right information and communication or the quality of your tour guide. Below are the important qualities of a guide that you must choose.

First is the ability to understand. Ideally he or she should speak a number of languages including your very own as well as the local ones. If they do then it will be better for them to speak clearly and with much confidence to be more understandable.

Punctuality is a must. Waiting for your guide is not a good indication. They must be the one waiting, not the visitors to them. They should realize that some visitors are very particular with the time and to waste it is a big mistake. You must be able to spend the time duration given that you will be staying with the place.

An approachable guide means friendly. He or she must deliver this spirit and your journey will be alright and fruitful. They should also be able to follow each member of the team without having a bossy feeling. They can be approachable without losing their ability as a leader. They must not instill the openness in each visitor.

A high knowledge about the place is essential to be an efficient leader as well. Knowing the history or anything about the site is helpful to deliver clear understanding. They must improve the overall understanding of each one about the site. They must guide each one of the team.

A tour guide knows how the best way to share his or her knowledge in an engaging manner. Repeating the facts told is not a good practice and must not be done by a professional one. It can make the situation redundant and thus will lose the interest of the listeners. Also, an encouraging ability must be present to let everyone participate.

A funny guide is what you are looking and wanting for. There must be a certain level of good humor. It is very essential as too serious is boring. It is essential for them to include a little time for break and for laughter and when exactly to be serious and encourage you to listen while they are speaking for the site.

An observant person is needed in each tour. The journey must be related to a range of visitors considering the different age groups. A good leader must also be aware for all the members who have special needs. He or she must be responsible to deal with all the visitors and to know each of their needs.

To spend mostly out of the Haida Gwaii tours, the guide must be all the time flexible in various circumstances. Being flexible is one of the most important and therefore must be practiced all the time. He or she must know how to react in every possibility without losing his or her professionalism.
