Nature of the Profession

Tourist guides are narrators who use speech as their tool to transmit knowledge at the place where things happen or happened. Their voice and performing skills and their ability to adjust to their audiences’ receptivity create an intimacy which is different every time they repeat the story. They have to be able to prioritise and select from a rich repertoire of academic background and turn their knowledge into living history. They are like academics but they never write, they only speak. They are like teachers, but they don't use notes or tests, they entertain people in their free time and holidays. Their version of teaching is connected to the moment and the space and it’s free, it is a living experience that can mark visitors for a lifetime.
