The Upside and Downside Of Picking The Right Travel Tours

Monday, July 16, 2012

Despite these warnings, the makeup of any one tour is unpredictable, and sometimes you can luck out. The one element that makes or breaks a tour is the tour director or escort. It is up to the tour director to see that everyone shows up on time, to deal with the inevitable grumblers, and to set a tone of goodwill and fun for the group. Ideally, this person should be all things to all people. This person should be friendly, outgoing, humane, intelligent, articulate, witty, well informed, and even tactful. Directors are usually college educated and the better established the tour company, the better the chances that you will have an expert tour director.
