HOW TO FIND A GOOD GUIDE
Luck always plays a part in the search for the right guide. And, you will only really know what a tour is like after you have taken it. But there are a few ways to steer yourself to some of your best travel experiences.
One of the first things you can do is read a guide’s reviews. This will help you get a good feel for his or her reputation. Jjguides.com recommends to look at each guide as a combination of their comments. A single compliment or criticism might not be telling enough. At jjguides.com, we aim to publish all the reviews we receive, as long as they don’t contain foul language or personal insults.
Apart from the reviews on jjguides.com, you can read information guides write about themselves, including facts about their tours, their prices, as well as their personal profiles. The fact that guides are able to write about themselves directly gives you a feel for the guide’s personality and touring style. A profile hand-written by a guide is also a perfect way of see how well a guide speaks your language. To be extra careful, see if a guide’s language skills are mentioned in their reviews; some guides with weaker skills might have someone write their profile for them. If you find a guide on jjguides.com who has particularly strong or weak speaking skills, jjguides.com would be very happy to receive a review about it.
Another easy way to make sure a guide is right for you can be a phone call. Luckily these days, it is more and more affordable to bring your cell phones to your destination, or to buy one when you arrive. When you hear your guide’s voice, you will get a good feeling for how well they communicate. When you call, don’t forget to have the right questions lined up. It is standard to ask a guide what is included in their tour, and to see if there are any other expenses on the road. It is important that you discuss entrance fees, transportation costs, as well as the cost of food (you don’t want to end up in an excessively expensive restaurant in the middle of nowhere.) While conversational etiquette varies from culture to culture, it is always okay to ask a guide about tour specifics. Be wary of guides who do not give direct answers, the best connections between tourists and guides include a straightforward discussion before the traveler decides to accept the offer.
