What does a Tourist Guide do?

Tour guides are responsible for informing and entertaining visitors. They must be well-educated in the subjects they are discussing. Guides can work in a variety of settings, including museums, historical landmarks, self-employed or with a travel company. They must select the most important and interesting information about the subject and present it to the visitors in a simple, yet appealing, way. Tour guides keep their assigned groups comfortable and stimulated over the whole time.
