10 Funny Bad Tips for Tour Guides

If you are an occupied tour guide with many clients around the world, we have Ten Tips to help you push tourists away. Using them, you will have a lot of free time, since no traveler will be interested in your services.
Let's get started!

#1: No clear offer

 

The reason why tourists may contact you is a clear offer of travel services. If you don't propose it, the number of potential customers will immediately decrease!

#2: Be someone difficult to contact

 

#2: Be someone difficult to contact

In case tourists are still interested in you, hide your contacts, including your email address and links to your social networks. No one should be able to reach out to you.

#3: Discomfort is a key

 

When you receive a message from a potential client, don't respond for the first three days or even a week. Then, do everything possible to make the tourist feel unwelcomed: answer in another language or behave unfriendly.

#4: Forget about deadlines

 

Forget about deadlines

If you happen to arrange an excursion, the main rule is to be two or three hours late. Don’t try to treat your guests with respect, as they may be satisfied with your service and contact you again or recommend you to others.

 

#5: Always ask for more

 

Even if you have agreed on the price of the tour, ask for more: more money, more tips. This is how you can avoid gratitude from your guests.

#6: Hurry up

The best way to prevent your guests from enjoying the moment is to rush. So hurry up, and don't let anyone dive into the moment.

#7: No excursion program

 

Having no excursion program will help you to be unstructured, lost, and inconsistent. As a result, tourists won’t be able to forget anything from the tour!

#8: Don't welcome questions

 

Don't welcome questions

When your guests don't hesitate to ask you questions, it's a red flag, because they may feel too comfortable. Interrupt them or ignore their questions, so they won't feel like talking to you.

#9: Forget about people's needs

 

Usually, guides suggest their guests stop somewhere to go to the restroom, have a break, and so on. But don’t do it, so tourists feel exhausted at the end of the tour!

#10: Ignore feedback
