A guided tour usually involves a professional tour guide who guides individual or group visitors or tourists around venues or places of interest such as natural areas, historic buildings, and sites and landscapes of a city or region. The accompanying guide interprets the cultural and natural heritage in an inspiring and entertaining manner and in the language of the tourist’s choice. Guided tours can vary in terms of settings, length, subject matters, types of clients, and activity environments.
