If there’s one job that guarantees you travel while you work, it’s going on holiday with other people.
“Guide” means someone who shows the way by leading or advising.
“Tour Guide” is a USA term while for rest of the world, it well-known as “Tourist Guide”
The tour guide has been wrongly portrayed by the media as either boring folk whose task is to share useless facts to the traveling group or as overly enthusiastic people who hammer away the whole tour with her very own memorized script. But there’s more to that to tour guides.
By textbook definition, a Tour Guide is an agent hired to travel with a tour group who provides assistance and historical, cultural and contemporary information on the place of the tour; religious sites, historical sites, museums, landscapes and any other sites which attracts visitors.
Why Become Tourist Guide
Workloads may be a bit challenging, but being a Tour Guide is a really great job. You get to go to places either you’ve always loved going to on vacation or have never been before. And researching the facts and the history behind these tourist spots and mastering other languages can prove to be fun and self-enhancing as well. You get to interact with other people as well, which if you enjoy can be a very lucrative opportunity.
