What qualities must a tour guide have?

What makes a good or outstanding guide? What qualities must they have?

Of course every guide is different and every group is different. However, there are a few common traits a good guide must have before being considered a good or outstanding guide.

Basic skills of a professional guide are knowledge, communication skill, humour and adaptability.

Knowledge - you definitely want to learn something new and hopefully interesting.

Communication skills - you must hear and understand the guide.

Humour - you'd probably enjoy the tour more if the guide has good humour.

Adaptability - you'd probably appreciate a guide who can adapt to unforeseen events.

Christmas in Iceland

Christmas is a wonderful time in Iceland in spite of the short daylight hours. Reykjavik Bike Tours offers the Classic Reykjavik Bike Tour some days during the holidays. There is some snow and ice on the ground but die-hard cyclists will find the ride even more fun than usual.

We've received lots of Christmas greetings from various bicycle associations and companies.

Compliments to Reykjavik Bike Tours - by Darren Alff

Reykjavik Bike Tours is a small, but well-run bicycle touring operation that gives informative and entertaining guided bike tours around the city center of Reykjavik, Iceland.

The tours aren’t long or particularly challenging (anyone who knows how to ride a bicycle can participate), but the experience of cycling around downtown Reykjavik while at the same time learning about the city, its people, and its history is something you will remember for the rest of your life.
