However, maintaining a steady number of customers is hard for every tour guide business, that's why you need to read these 6 tips to attract more customers to your business.


  1. Be knowledgeable about your local area and well versed in local history.

  4. Take your guests to some of your favorite places. They will enjoy learning about hidden away spots that give a sense of local immersion.
  5. Make an effort in meeting new people. Remember to introduce yourself and meet each individual in your group. This will make the tour more enjoyable for everyone that attends.
  6. Stay organized with your tour guide appointments. Planning tours is difficult enough, don't make it harder on yourself by having to keep track of every tour appointment. Automate your tour guide appointments with online scheduling.

Follow these six tips above and your tour guide business will attract more customers.
