I’m a local guide, and I’m also a traveler in cruise ships. As a traveler, I’ve lived the worst scenarios with tours guides.

For example, those guides that make me spend 120 minutes in the gift shop and only 60 minutes to see the most important places or those guides who are very shy and don’t communicate at all. I find this extremely frustrating.
A guide must be very practical and organized, and surely, guides have to understand people and think about their needs.
As a knowledgeable guide and traveler, I give a really focus to sightseeing visit. Doing this, even when a tourist has very little time in one place, get’s the important info. I can get my clients away from large groups and get into nature.
I have a comfortable Jeep, and I can drive up into the hills, lagoons, volcanoes, off-roading or by asphalt roads. Client choice. Usually, I offer this followed by a nice lunch at one of the locals village eatery.
