Les guides touristiques accueillent et guident les groupes de touristes et animent des activités de divertissement. Dans le cadre de leurs fonctions, ils préparent les visites (information culturelle, itinéraire, matériel nécessaire, etc.), coordonnent le transport des personnes et de leurs bagages et résolvent les problèmes de logistique ainsi que les situations problématiques. C’est un métier enrichissant qui convient aux personnes sociables et ouvertes d’esprit. Un emploi comme guide touristique réclame aussi le sens de l’organisation et de la courtoisie et des aptitudes pour l’apprentissage des langues étrangères.
