We’re always impressed by the enthusiasm and expertise of all the tour guides we work with, so we thought it would be fun to look at what makes a GREAT guide!

A truly exceptional tour guide possesses a deep understanding and knowledge of their subject matter, whether it’s the stunning Dartmoor National Park, the picturesque Devon countryside, the breath-taking coast, or the charming towns and villages in the region. This knowledge is the foundation upon which they build engaging and informative tours.

However, expertise alone is not enough. A great tour guide must also be friendly and approachable, with the natural ability to connect with people from all walks of life. Their enthusiasm and passion for the area should be evident, creating an atmosphere where learning is enjoyable, and curiosity is encouraged.

The best tour guides go the extra mile for their guests, adding a touch of magic to every tour. They are attentive to the needs and interests of their guests, personalising the experience to ensure it is memorable and special.

Whether it’s sharing a fascinating local legend, pointing out hidden gems, or simply making everyone feel welcome, these guides know how to create an unforgettable experience.

Humour is also a valuable trait in a tour guide; those who can make people laugh and feel comfortable asking questions enhance the overall enjoyment and engagement of the tour.
