The tourism industry is a hugely lucrative business, with over a trillion- yes a trillion- dollars in international revenue in 2012 and growing, according to Statistica. While there’s a lot that goes into a successful tour, the tour guide that gives it can turn an experience from humdrum to phenomenal with the right technology by his side.
1. Choose the technology right for your tour
Every tour is different and different industries require varied tech. Loud factories may need noise-cancelling headphones and Segway tours need hands-free speakers. A guide needs to know what works best for his audience and the tour setting. TourGuide Solutions’ TGS-900 system is a versatile and affordable option perfect for a variety of tours, from breweries to parks and cruise ship to Segway tours. The TGS-900 system is the perfect tool for a guide to create a successful and memorable tour.
2. Keep the audience engaged
Any tour guide knows that keeping the audience’s attention is essential. Interesting stories, charming factoids and group interaction helps a tour along. Sometimes though, it can be tough to hold onto a crowd when the tour location is peppered with noisy distractions that make it difficult for tourists to hear a guide. The TGS-900 system is a perfect solution for guides, allowing an unlimited number of listeners to tune in with lightweight hands-free receivers with clear, reliable audio signals, so no narrative will go unheard.
3. Stay organized
When a guide has a full schedule of tours, it’s especially important to stay organized and ready throughout the day. Keeping track of time and prepping for guests is key to starting a tour off strong and the TGS-900 system is designed with an on-the-go tour guide in mind. The entire system fits into a soft-sided carrying case that weighs less than 10 pounds, perfect for easy transportation.
4. Be prepared for anything
On any tour, unknown distractions can pop up and make it difficult for guests to enjoy the program a guide has prepared. The TGS-900 system’s reliable audio and 600 foot transmission range makes it easy for a guide to keep an audiences attention even in noisier areas. Thanks to the TGS-900 system’s smart charging technology, a guide can also keep his tech fully charged with a 24-slot drop-in charging tray. With a trustworthy tour guide system that can be charged at the drop of a hat, any tour guide can roll with the punches and give memorable, entertaining tours.
Whether a business features tours or is a tourism business, the key to creating a happy guest is a tour guide that knows what’s what. TourGuide Solutions’ TGS-900 Compact Tour Guide System has the technology to bring a tour to the next level and is a perfect tool for a successful, effective tour guide.
