Who hasn’t travelled to some new place and get excited to meet new places and the most emblematic places and more, but has forgotten about enjoying the experience whilst learning a little more about the place and its history?
Part of these problems are solved thanks to the guided tours. You are, far from supposing that the tours will be boring, because they will be very interesting and enriching. You need to change your mind, and chec how is possible to meet the history, stories, anecdotes and culture of a city through a fun way. You need to forget that idea of the touristic guide that talks non-stop, without any type of empathy and sympathy… That’s in the past. The guided tours have changed a lot, and we want you to discover it.
1. You help in the patrimony conservation
By booking a guided tour, you are avoiding that other people, non-qualified, gain money. This type of activity is very susceptible since, in some occasions, a low-quality service is offered by people that is not qualified for the job.
The tourism companies and agencies can guarantee a better conservation of the monuments with great historical and cultural values since their aim, in part, to take care of them and that no participant in a group commits any type of deliquince to any of them.
2. Learn fun facts
With history books, you can learn a lot, we know that, but sometimes, it can become tedious to remember stuff or details due the way they are exposed or redacted.
The guides, actually, recreate with a story the place you are visiting, they tell you anecdotes, and fun facts about it… They do anything to get the attention of the tourist and that they never forget the highlights of each zone.
In some visits, they also offer didactical material like tablets or fact sheets that can be a great help when is time to get the attention of the group, especially the kids’, that always need a something striking and eye-catching to get into the story.
3. Meet people from all over the world
One of the best thing that a touristic guides has is you need to be certain that everyone that come to one is because is interested on the same things and if not a 100%, there is a high percentage of coincidence when talking about what you like.
Great friendships have started in a tourist’s group, starting with a simple conversation and finishing with sharing phone numbers. It is not necessary to see each other everyday, but is great to maintain communication with that person and to remember how you met, and it was whilst visiting an incredible place.
4. Seize the time
One of the inconvenients that you can face when visiting visiting a new place, is the little time you have the majority of times, always the less you would like to have.
That’s why, to book a service like this one, you’ll seize the time to the max for sure, meeting the main places, walking through the main streets… And all of it, within the time you had for the visit.
In just 2 or 3 hours, you have visited the best parts of the city and its history, thanks to the guide that will tell the most important details and facts. You won’t need to study in advance the zone’s history or search on the web the customs and traditions.
5. Do not worry, you won’t get lost
Nowadays, with all the new technologies it has become more complicated to get lost when you don’t know the route, but, who has never has open the GPS app and have appeared in the other part of the city?
Between “go southeast” (and who knows where the southeast with the naked eye?), and all the pressure you can feel when your group of friends or family has put you as the leader of the group and the one to find the fastest route, you're more eager than anyone to get to the place…
The best option os to go with someone who knows the place. The experts will guide you, normally carrying an identification that with the naked eye is easy to find and follow. Unless you are very absent-minded, it is very unlikely that you will get lost.
When to be part of a guided tour?
The good thing is that you can do it throughout the whole year, for starters, in any part of the world and with thousand of possibilities of schedules.
If you are enjoying your holidays and are in the middle of the week, the most probable thing is that you will enjoy an almost-private guided tour, just for you and your group since on the weekends is more common to be with other people and groups.
But, also, to book a guided route any day of the weekend has it own charms since you’ll check, in first person, the city’s ambience, people’s character and it looks like you are enjoying a whole new place.
Whatever route you choose, you know is a safe bet when meeting a new place is all about, with the guarantee that you will remember the best thing of each corner. Still don’t feel like trying it?
