With so many Tour Guides, who should you choose? Here are a few pointers.

  · See if there are reviews by other Trippers posted on their profile.

  · See how long the Tour Guide has been signed up on Synotrip. If they've been active for a long time, there's a good chance they've had the time to build up expertise and smooth out their service offerings.

  · Check out the content they've contributed. This can display their knowledge and enthusiasm.

  · Ask for references.

  · Choose somebody that you're comfortable with.

  · Don't be afraid to contact more than one Tour Guide and compare.


Getting The Most Out of Your Tour

Talk to your Tour Guide before meeting them to discuss your plan. Don't be shy to ask questions.

Here are some topics you might discuss:

  · The length of time they will work.

  · The number of people that will attend the Tour.

  · Who will pay entrance tickets, meal fees and transportation fees.

  · Whether or not tipping is expected.

  · Where you will be travelling together.

  · Where you will NOT be travelling together. It is not uncommon for Tour Guides to earn commissions from vendors in exchange for bringing travellers to gift shops. If you don't want to stop at any of these, let them know ahead of time.

  · Any special considerations you will need.

  · What currency you will be paying with. You pay the Tour Guide directly. Synotrip charges neither the Tripper nor the Tour Guide.

  · Finally, after using their services, please go to their profile and post a review. Both your Tour Guide and other Trippers will appreciate it!

  · Post reviews or photos elsewhere on the site.
