4. Tour Guide 

https://www.slideshare.net/premalgangar/personality-2676266
Tour  guiding  has  been  an  area  of  research  activity  for  the  past  years.  Robotic  (2010:  214)  explains  that  “the origin and evolution of the role of tour guide  was expounded by Cohen (1985), who was a pioneer of making tourists guiding  a  matter  of  scientific  attention”.  Consequently,  various  attempts  have  been  made  to  describe  tour  guides  and guiding professionalism.   Tour guides mean different people. Hu (2007) says that tour guides are also known by titles like tour leaders, tour managers, tour escorts, local guides, docents and interpreters. Cruz (1999) adds that other names of a tour guide include tourist guide, local guide, and city guide but for the people outside the tourism industry call tour guides as tour managers, docents or interpreters.  This  misunderstanding  has  been  taken  into  account  and  various  academic researchers  have  provided typologies  of  the guiding  field.  It is, therefore, beyond the scope of this paper to outline the typologies.
