A fabulous and professional Tour Guide impacts the whole guest experience. They are the frontline workers and make your destination shine.
In the post-pandemic New Normal the guide is becoming the real nexus of safety and service.And we are here to make it understandable to everybody!
The webinar on Traveling & Working in 2021 provided a vital platform for gaining insight and deeper understanding on how the travel industry must adapt to fit into the new normal. I would highly recommend trade industry partners join future webinars as they will find it useful.
Thanks a lot to the organizers and the panelists of the online conference. It was a valuable experience for me as a guide.
These FORUMS are a good idea to stay "Hooked" to our beloved activity. Excellent content presented by Sjannie Hulsman, Good thoughts by Angelika, lovely ideas by Svetlana, and unfortunately a man with great experience not well understood; the English language is spoken by Pete (Scottish is quite difficult to understand), and good considerations from Sunita. I recommend anyone speaking to make an effort for clear pronunciation, especially when pronouncing the last syllable.
On behalf of the Moscow tour guides and Association of the Tour Guides and Tour Managers thank you very much for the organization of the webinar. Staying in touch and exchanging opinions is essential for all professionals in tourist business.
They organize up-to-date meetings with core people in industry. Good networking, valuable information and updated news.
The panelists are professionals and understand the situation confronting the industry.
Professional organisation of webinar and good introduction of provided materials with participation of skilled tourism people.
Recommended to those, who are in touristic business. Discussion of all problems during pandemic, support, that's now so important!👍
