How to solve the lack of guides problem


Due to the growth of world tourism, many museums and visit centers are faced with the lack of guides problem .
Guides who speak their native language or English, albeit with an accent, usually enough, but lack of guides speaking other languages is a problem.
Moreover, a guide should not only know historical information and speak language well, but for a more complete and interesting presentation of tourist sights, he should be a bit of an artist, a bit of a reciter and, of course, a storyteller.
Nowadays, the demand for such workers in many industries is quite high, so it is not surprising that there are not enough good multilingual guides, and this problem will only increase with the growth of tourist flows.
The solution is the use of automatic audio guides, for example, izi.TRAVEL, when professional guides, writers, local historians, storytellers and translators take part in creating content, and then tourists download these stories to their smartphones an unlimited number of times.


This allows, on the one hand, to offer tourists the best guide and stories, and on the other, to help tourists get a better feel for a new culture and history.

Why museums and organizations need web analytics

Earlier, we showed that, probably, the main source of information for a tourist is the Internet, since before a trip there are almost no other ways to get information about the place of a future stay.

Therefore, many tourist organizations, hotels, museums have web sites and consider that this is enough, only a few of them use analytical programs.



In our opinion, this is rather careless, since the owners and managers of the organization have no idea how their site works, how interesting it is for users, what sections of it attract the user more.

Moreover, with analytics you can track social networks and the effectiveness of advertising.

What is also important, web analytics allows you to determine the approximate age and, perhaps most importantly, the geographical position of users, making it easy to understand what kind of traffic visits the site and how true your assumptions and hypotheses about the interests of your potential customers are.

Therefore, if travel organizations want t…

How to make tourist write positive reviews

Tourist reviews in social networks and on various travel sites are very important for travel companies, hotels and museums, because in the world of wide Internet interaction, before booking hotel or tour, tourists always watch reviews and make a decision based on the opinions of random people, who actually visited this place.


Many tour companies, hotels and travel services come up with various tricks for tourists to write good reviews in social networks, booking systems and travel sites.


Some offer free services, some just ask, some offer bonuses, better accommodation, etc.



In our opinion, this is not promising, because it does not help to improve the service at all, does not lead to an improvement in the perception of this object by tourists, and therefore does not lead to improvement of reviews in the long term, but only diverts resources to useless work. Review is a materialized perception of a company by tourist or his appraisal of an existing image.


Obviously, there is only one …

Does a tourist company need a website?

One of the frequently asked questions - does a tourist company need a website?



Indeed, you can have pages on Facebook or Instagram, be pointed on electronic maps, and it seems like website is not needed. Similarly, if we consider hotels, you can place information on Booking.com or Tripadvisor and also do not have your website.

It is appropriate for some businesses but tourism has its own features.

1. The average bill in the tourism sector is quite high, so potential customers are more responsible in choosing a product and absence of website of a hotel or travel agency might cause concern.
2. According to studies, before making a purchase a tourist visits an average of 37 sites. What happens if among these sites no one is yours – it Is obviously.
3. As already mentioned – the main selling tool in tourism is trust. Having a good professional website will only strengthen it, since only a stable and well-organized company that cares for its reputation can create and maintain a good websi…
