Tour Guides: Mind Road Safety

Transportation makes part of the sightseeing tours. Depending on the group size, it can be a private car, bus, or taxi. While the driver is responsible for safe driving, tour guides need to remind travelers of road safety.

Remind passengers of the seat belt. People from some countries are cautious of road safety, while others might neglect. After boarding the vehicle, a tour guide needs to inform clients where the seat belts are. Ask them to put on the belt for safety reasons, especially when there are kids on the vehicle. Take extra attention to see if the kids are safely fastened.

Mind your own security on the vehicle. If you are standing while it is driving, hold on to something in case of emergency. There is a place for the guide in front of a bus. If you are sitting, put the seat belt on. For one thing, the guide is often taking the front seat which has higher risks at accidents. On the other hand, a guide may need to turn back and talk to clients along the way.

When doing walking tours, tour guides also need to mind the traffic when crossing the street. Travelers are new to the destination, some even from foreign countries. The traffic rule and customs can be very different. As a tour guide, it is necessary to remind your clients of road safety. Watch out for the traffic when necessary.

There is a wide range and variety of entertainment options that you can choose from if you choose travel on business or vacation. Usually a single and successful man would prefer to be with a lovely female companion in his spare time rather than sitting in a hotel room alone at night and get bored

Passengers on bus travel should always wear seat belts and make sure that they are safely fastened since safety is a priority. Passengers should obey bus rules at all times and know the basics like the exit location, fire extinguishers and medical kits storage area in case of an accident.

As you travel on the road, you get to witness a variety of scenery and it would be more relaxing if you and other passengers are comfortable during transportation.
