While we sometimes prefer to venture out on our own when vacationing there are times we should rely on the value of a more experienced, knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. As a tour guide, you provide valuable information on walking tours, driving tours or cruises through popular sites, national parks, historic neighborhoods, museums or other regional points of interest. Being a tour guide is not only physically demanding, but there is a lot to coordinate to ensure an enjoyable trip for your clients.
GigaBook.com has an extremely useful suite of tools to help keep track of the various activities, transportation and accommodations you’re coordinating. Whether you work for a tour and travel guide company, or are an independent contractor, the integrated calendar and to-do list keeps track of important deadlines, provides automated reminders and is accessible anywhere—on your phone, tablet or laptop.
