According to DOT IX Regional Director Mary June Bugante, “si tiene grupo tan byahe, bueno kel tiene tour guide para dale informacion del un lugar.”
The lecturer for the training will be Mary Ann Perpetua Hildawa who is the sales manager of Mars Man Tours.
Things to be taught to the participants are techniques in basic tour guiding, how to conduct a tour, duties and responsibilities of a tour guide, escorting a guest, and communication skills.
The participants will have a hands on training where they will showcase what they have learned. A certificate will be given to those who will finish the course.
The basic Tour Guiding Seminar is a prerequisite for getting the advance tour guiding which is a 21-days seminar after which the participants can get their tour guiding license.
Bugante said the training was done in time for the October 12, 2011 Fiesta Pilar.
According to Bugante, the city only has two licensed tour guides.
