The Qualities Of A Good Tour Guide In Dubai

  1. Explains Everything Very Well And Very Succinctly

Enthusiastic

This is the most important part of this job. The tourists will sense if you don’t feel passionate when you’re talking to them. A smile or even laugh shows that you’re confident, enthusiastic and friendly. Even if you’re a tour guide with no previous travel experience, I believe everyone has a good smile.

In other words, a smile is a great start.

Now, let’s talk about passive.

Passive is the opposite of enthusiastic. For example, if you see an American girl with a big smile on her face, you think, “this girl is excited and energetic about being there.” But if you observe her while she’s walking, you’d think, “she has a passive attitude and is not very enthusiastic.”

  1. Can Make Even Complicated Things Seem Simple

Engaging

Tour guides are experienced and trained to provide a wide variety of different services. This means that instructors will be able to deliver an exceptional and memorable experience, even when you travel with an age range of people.

  1. Can Understand The Needs Of Everyone

Communicative

Having strong communication skills is one of the most important qualities of a good tour guide. The more you can teach and inspire, the more your clients will enjoy coming back.

What do you mean by communication skills? It means how you convey the message. For example, do you listen and watch closely, and then express yourself accordingly. Do you have a creative way of conveying the message? A tour guide should understand the local people and culture and be able to communicate effectively with clients.

A guide must be able to be friendly and show concern for his clients, and this is one of the most important qualities for a good tour guide.

  1. Is Very Good At Making The Whole Trip Run Smoothly And With No Problems

Organised

It comes almost without saying. Tour guides, tour managers, tour administrators,sales agents, drivers, drivers’ helpers, tour office staff, local guides, guides for day and overnight trips, hotel staff, bus drivers, camp instructors, and camp workers. They are usually listed among the “crew” at the start of an activity, but may be organised as part of a larger tour operation or at the end.

  1. Is Able To Adapt To Different Situations

Tour Operations

Most commercial tour operators are privately owned. Sometimes tour operators will set up tours to sell directly to travellers. A tour company will often be hired by one or more tour operators to manage a particular tour, and may be contracted to provide guides, bus drivers, etc.

What is a Travel Agent

A travel agent is a professional who offers help in planning a trip and who can find the best travel opportunities for you and your travel party.

Multilingual

Speaking multiple languages is, if not a necessity, then just an excellent quality in all the tour guide business. As it is, we always take in consideration the languages that our clients can understand, but the guide is always expected to speak to them in English.

Guides can speak in the language of your choice if you want to speak to them in that specific language.

But, on average we have a group of clients with different languages and cultures, and they all seem to understand English.If you are an English speaker and you want to understand the language of some place, don’t forget the good old method: put the book in your pocket and keep reading.

The good thing is that English is the language used in the tourism business and our hotel’s front desk staff.
