Game of Local Tour Guides: How to Create an Account, part 2

In the previous part of the article, we discussed how to fill out the basic information in the tour guide’s profile.

Go to the first part

Below you will learn how to make a delicious profile "stuffing" section with tours.

Section "My tours"

In this section, you need to add all of the tours that you can offer to travelers. If any of these becomes irrelevant, you can click on the button «OFF» directly below it to make it no longer displayed on the site. Under all other tours, you need to click «ON».

Section My tours

How to write a correct description of your tour?

Adding a new tour, it is necessary not to only specify its language, price, number of participants and length, but also include a brief description and add some photos.

How to write a correct description of your tour?

If tours are made on a specific schedule, it also needs to be indicated in the description. Do not be greedy and add more beautiful pictures. Better if you made these yourself.

As a result, the page with the tour will look like this:

Page with the tour

1 - General information.

2 - Description.

3 - Photos.

A little bit about how to write a description. You can use this template:

  1. A short summary that intrigues the reader and inspires him to visit this place.
The Wall is the guarantor of the protection for all inhabitants of the Seven Kingdoms from the barbarians and evil forces. Can anything make a deeper impression on the traveler than a visit to Westeros main protective structure?
  1. A reason why the tourist must visit this place namely with you. This paragraph can be moved to the end of the description.
“I've spent 8 years on the Wall, and I can guarantee the safety of the travelers”.
  1. Entertainment program. Think of what questions or concerns can have a tourist when reading each item. Try to immediately answer them.

The program of the tour includes:

  • Walk through the secret passages of the Wall.
  • Inspection of siege engines which are used to protect the Wall from wildlings attacks.
  • Access to novice training fights. You will see what converts inexperienced youths in the harsh warriors of the Night’s Watch.
  • Snack in the Night’s Watch dining room. The first and second course at your choice are included in the tour’s price.
  • Meeting the Giants. They are my old friends, and therefore they will not be against mingling with the guests."
  1. Tours schedule, if available.

Do not turn the description of the tour into a typical advertisement. There is no need to impose anything. Give all of the necessary information and mention some "juicy" details. It will be enough.

Filling out the description, do not be afraid to write a lot, as its size is not limited, and is important for tourists to get as much information as possible about each tour.

Remember that information about your tours is available not only in the search on the website but also through the search engines. Therefore, leave your personal and unique descriptions. In this case, their position among the search results will be higher and more tourists will know about your tours.

Advice. Whenever you open the site, other users see your status "online" once you have entered your profile. Tourists who are looking for tour guides to a city, may indicate that they are looking only for candidates who at the moment are "online". Therefore, keeping the site open, you increase the chance of getting a new order.


A profile photo and information about the tours can provide all the data necessary for the tourist to make a decision about choosing a tour guide. Soon an additional functionality will be shown on our website, links to social networks, videos, and more. This we will describe separately.

    I also wanted to mention that in respect of pricing my tours include costs based on what the guest asks for. So for example some guests want meals included others not, most prices include toll and entrance fees as well as activity fees but sometimes guests ask for costs without and additional entrances and etc. Others ask me to include include flights and/or accommodation.

    The thing about private guiding is that it is totally up to the guest to specify what they want included or excluded and flexibility is crucial. Once again I believe that if the app allowed for alphanumeric data to be entered then one could say something like “From Rxx” or “Basic cost Rxx” or “From Rxx including all entranced and activities”

    I have a couple of issues.

    1. Pricing
    My tours are priced per person and depend on the number of guests who will tour. So if it is a private tour for one guest the cost will be for example R6500. If there are 5 guests traveling together the cost will go down to for example R2000 per person. If more than 12 people say for example R1250 per person. If the pricing line made provision for text as well as numbers then I could say price from R1200 per person but the site does not allow this

    2) Excursions
    Every tour is specifically tailor made to the guests so there is no standard itinerary. Thus specific excursions are difficult to list as for example although a wine lands tour might go to the same areas the focus in one might be in specific grape varietals or only red wines or only estates which have art galleries attached to them and so on. Thus individual excursions are difficult to list

    Difficulties around Point 2 are easier to overcome but definitely the difficulties associated with point 1 could be alleviated if PG changed the format of the possible responses.

    The tour length is measured in hours. This is not suitable for a several days' trip. When entering 192 hours for my 8-day-trip I get a format error upon upload.

    Brilliant! Will apply it to my own tours which are " A LA CARTE " in the Southwest of the US.
