How to be a tour guide?! ^_^

Learn it by heart:

Tourguides provide special information on history, archaeology, monuments and works of art, the environment, culture, natural and built attractions, places of interest and any general matters of interest to the visitor.

Tour guides may perform the following tasks:

* meet members of a tour on arrival and make introductions
* coordinate pre-arranged accommodation and transport, and *make sure that tour members are comfortable
* lead tour groups, advise tour members of local interest points *and prepare and present tour commentaries
* coordinate pre-arranged tour activities such as visits to local attractions, restaurants or shops, train rides, cruises and extended tours
* research and share general information on Vietnam & other countries’ cultures
* attend to operational problems such as booking errors and amendments, lost luggage or illness, and provide first aid if needed
* keep in touch with transportation companies
* maintain written reports of daily activities and carry out other administrative work.

Being a tour guide is often physically demanding. During a tour, guides must be available at all times to answer questions and sort out problems. Manual work such as loading or unloading baggage or other equipment may be required.
Tour guides are often required to spend time away from home, especially those fulfilling the role of Tour Manager.
