How to Be a Good Guide
I have worked as a guide in theme parks and museums, and I have noticed that many guides are not very good at their job. There are many reasons for this, but here I will focus on the most common one: they do not know how to be a good guide. This is a shame, because being a guide can be an extremely rewarding job.
So what does it take to be a good guide? There are two main things:
A good guide gives the people what they want.
A good guide helps people enjoy themselves, and learn something new.
I have worked as a guide at the local museum and theme park for the past three years. I love my job, and I especially like seeing all the children who come to visit. I would like to share some tips on being a good guide.
1. Be Prepared
On your first day of work, you will learn the area where you will be working and all the attractions in it. You will also learn your schedule and be given a script that you must memorize.
You must memorize your script because you will be asked many questions from visitors and you need to know how to answer them. If you are asked a question that is not in your script, do not make up an answer! Instead, be honest and tell the visitor that you will find out about their question and tell them later.
2. Be Friendly And Helpful
Visitors want to have fun when they come to our theme park or museum, so try to make their visit enjoyable by helping them if they need help with something. For example, if someone asks for directions or wants to know where an attraction is located, answer their questions cheerfully and politely. And if someone needs help with one of our interactive attractions like the dinosaur dig exhibit, help them until they understand how to
I’ve been a guide in theme parks and museums for over five years now. It’s a great job, and I’m always happy to help people have a good time. I’ve met people from all over the world, and I hope my visitors have found it as interesting to learn about other cultures as I have.
Here’s a few tips on getting the most out of your visit with me:
Don’t forget to tip! It’s customary to tip guides in the United States, and really important to me. Please be sure to give me at least 10% of what you paid for your tour at the end of it! If you’re not satisfied with my services, please let me know so that we can make it up to you.
Do ask questions! The best part of my job is learning about different cultures and meeting new people every day. Don’t feel like you’re bothering me!
Don’t forget your manners. I’ve had plenty of times where children were disrespectful or rude to me or other visitors. Don’t be one of those kids!
Do respect the park owners’ wishes. I understand it might be tempting to sneak into areas that are off-limits, but the rules are there for a reason – it’s so that everyone can
You need to be able to answer any question that your guest might ask. This means you need to know the information inside-out and backwards. If you have a tour group of sixty people, they are going to ask the same questions over and over again, so you need to know your stuff so that you don’t sound like you are reading off of a script every time someone asks a question.
It is also helpful if you have some sort of hobby or interest that is related to the theme park/museum. For example, I love Disney trivia and when I was working at Disneyland I would look up little known facts about the park and its history on my own time so that I could share them with the guests on the tour. If a guest asks a question about something in particular or something random, chances are there will be other guests who want to hear your answer too, so learning random trivia about the park is a great way for both you and your guest to get more out of their experience!
We often get questions about how to be a good guide. It’s really not that hard. Just keep these 5 things in mind:
1. Do your research
2. Be personable
3. Don’t be afraid to take a break
4. Speak loud and clear
5. Don’t forget the little details
Winnie the Pooh costumes are our best sellers. Both kids and adults like them. I have been a guide for 10 years so I know everything about costumes.
I have never seen any other costume like this one. It is so unique, yet simple. The mask is made of very thin plastic that makes it easy to see through, but not so easy that your eyes can be seen through it. The body part is made of very soft material that feels good on your skin. The overall quality of the costume is very good and it is very comfortable to wear.
The mask fits snugly on your face and you don’t feel like you are wearing anything at all. You can easily turn your head from side to side without feeling any discomfort. The body part fits well and does not feel too tight or too loose. The overall quality of the costume is very good and it is comfortable to wear for a long time without feeling any discomfort.
If you want to buy a Winnie the Pooh costume, I recommend this one because it has a lot of positive reviews online and also because it’s very well made and comfortable to wear for hours at a time without feeling any discomfort whatsoever. You will definitely enjoy wearing this costume!
When you first start working in the field of guiding, you may feel nervous or poorly prepared. Do not worry! There are just a few rules to keep in mind.
1. Be smiling, friendly, and helpful when guests approach you with questions about where to go or what to do.
2. When giving an explanation to a group of guests, make sure that everyone can hear and understand you.
3. Do not speak too quickly or use big words.
4. When explaining something to guests, try to use language that is easy for children to understand, but still interesting for adults.
5. Never give too much information at one time (more than two sentences). Try to focus on the most important or interesting aspects of a subject when describing it.
6. Never speak without first thinking about what you want to say! If there are two other guides nearby who are talking with their own groups of guests, then wait until they have finished before beginning your own explanations so as not be distracting or confusing for everyone else.”
