When visiting a new place it is always nice to take in the sights that show what the area is about, but what if you want to know the history and all the "key" places to see, then a tour company might be something to check out. If you are good at public speaking, would enjoy showing visitors around places of interest, such as towns and cities, historic buildings, gardens, religious sites or museums and art galleries then being a tour guide is the career for you.
Tour guides are responsible for leading individuals and groups on sponsored excursions throughout zoos, museums, national parks, and countless other sightseeing attractions. Knowledgeable and friendly, they are also responsible for patron safety, and ensures that everyone is aware of the necessary security protocols. The exact requirements ultimately depend on the nature of your job or environment and the mastery of the subject.
