How to become a Tourist Guide

Introduction:

Quoting from the article in the Tourism Tattler written on the 18th of June 2017 by Bo Langkilde: "Tourist guides in South Africa are some of the most important people in the travel trade. They interact on a personal level daily with tourists, and a good tourist guide can make a holiday visit really memorable. In this article, we investigate how to become a tourist guide in South Africa, what makes a good tourist guide, and how and where they find work."
The article will discuss "Who is a Tourist Guide?", "Categories of tourist guides", "Classification of Tourist Guides" and "Qualifications", along with more vital information for all new or wanting to be tourist guides.
If your passion is to show off this beautiful country of South Africa and all it offers to the traveller then becoming a professional tourist guide is an obvious choice for you.
