The tour guide is basically someone who drives and shows tourists the different tourists’ attractions. The reason why their need is that when a tourist is visiting the place like say for the first time, they lack the actually know of how to get to the place, what to do, whom to consult when you get to a destination and so many others that is why they have to hire the services of the local tour guide to help them in their navigation process.

The majority of the tour guides are males.

The males account for the largest number of tour guides. I don’t know why there are very few limited female guides yet females know how to drive cars. I believe most of them have not tapped into this kind of opportunity and I know the future is bright for the female tour guides because we are seeing them increasing in number every day.
